a Walk in the Woods

With the first day of sun in a while, we decided a bit of exercise was in order. We used our Senior Day Pass ($10 for a year, what a deal) and headed over to Henry Cowell State Park.

It's sure handy having a State Park so close!

The day was perfect

I love the look of spring light through new leaves.

Looking down is pretty wonderful too.

I may be tired of the rain,
but it sure brings on the green.

The sun was just right for leaf shadows

The colors are so vivid
shadows . . .

The shot above is my favorite of the day
(and looks much better enlarged)

It was a perfect afternoon.

The many colors of spring jump off the page on this walk. I love that last shot! Hopefully this melting snow will bring some color my way.

Sure love all that green color. Beautiful photos, Kate. Today it's rained almost all day here, and it's still cold. Enjoy your sunshine, and send some up this way if you get the chance. Love you guys.

Just beautiful. the rain makes you appreciate the sunshine all the more. I am ready to do some appreciating! Love those paths - looks like you could walk forever.

It is so delightful when the sun plays through the forest, especially a coastal forest. And how delightful for you to be able to play in that light and to capture it so imaginatively. You have developed a real photographer's eye! And thanks for sharing! That's a very important part of taking pictures -- sharing them.
