Close-up of a fallen tree. I was attracted to the bold colours and pattern in the bark. The pine needles add a point of interest.
I saw this leaf as I was walking along a creek. I chose an angle to emphasize the textures and the contrast with the reflected sky.
I invariably end up on my knees on nature outings, and that was the case here.
Mushrooms and tree fungi are a favourite subject. This specimen was at chest height.
A trail in the forest near the boardwalk. This pretty much sums up the beauty of a lovely fall day.
I love this tree! I've shot it on almost every visit, in every season. On this visit, I had the chance to frame it with dramatic clouds in the background.
There is a Ducks Unlimited protected pond in the forest. As I walked past, I noticed the beautiful soft light and couldn't resist this shot.
I loved the way the bark on this tree seemed like it was braided.
I noticed this tree fungus as I was heading back to the parking lot to meet up with my friends.
This is a close up shot of the fungus of the previous photo. I wanted to show the detail of the edge and the interesting surface pattern.
