Sometimes you just have to leave everything behind and just enjoy nature.

This morning before leaving for work, I told Jamie that I'd bring him for a walk in the woods (him to check out the squirrel territory, me to enjoy nature and shoot with my camera). Especially since it's giving 40 mm of rain tomorrow. 

Mondays I'm usually done at 4pm, so that meant that it would still be light when I got home.

I got home and we left right away.

Here's some of the pics I took.

What we call a Berlicoco.

Some funky thing on the underside of a dead branch

Des p'tits rou rouge. Well that's what we called them when I was a kid.
Just a cool, mossy stump
Meandering stream
Love it! But I have no idea what it is.

Where's Waldo?
It was dark by the time we got home.

Have a Blessed Evening


  1. Lisa, some times it just good to stop and smell the roses, don't you think? There were times in my life when that was not possible. This retired season of life leaves plenty of time for that and I am truly blessed to be able to enjoy it. It's really difficult to top being out in nature. I have found places even in my large city where wild nature abounds.

    You are very good at taking nature pictures. As for me, I just point and shoot with my old Kodak 4.0 Megapixel camera. It's still good enough for my emails and blogs. Cameras are amazing in today's technology. What was professional quality cameras just a few short years ago now can be taken with a cell phone. It boggles my mind how fast technology is advancing.

    Have a great walk in nature day.

  2. Thank you for the lovely compliment. I love taking pictures. Have all my life. I'm a fan of Canon Rebel cameras. I'm on my third one. I had two when it was 35mm camera, but used them to death. Then I didn't really have that much money to spend on a camera so I bought a Kodak camera and after hearing complain about it for two years my husband bought me a RED Canon digital Rebel!! I figure with the amount of pictures I take it should be toast in 5 more years. Ha Ha. People love my red camera. It was a limited edition and nobody has ever seen one. So I know it's mine when I see other cameras around and so does everyone else!

    Technology can be great sometimes. It took my awhile to go to digital. I don't like change.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
