Limerick Forest in Winter

The Friends of Limerick Forest held an Open Doors event on March 6, 2016 that featured hot dogs at the firepit, tobogganing, horse-drawn sleigh rides and other activities for visitors. I came mainly to photograph the forest and had a great time because the weather was mild and the brilliant sunshine threw fascinating shadows throughout the forest. CLICK HERE to see some of my shots from this outing.

I have visited Limerick Forest several times in recent years, mainly because I have a good friend who lets me know of events taking place there that the Friends of Limerick Forest organize. Through these repeated visits I'm getting to know my way around the various forest trails and accumulate a body of work on the forest during different seasons of the year. Winter is a great time to be there for photography since the air is particularly clear and the snow simplifies what is otherwise a cluttered forest scene. During this visit the sun was bright and I was immediately struck by the interesting shadows that it cast on the fresh snow. I had a great time and even managed to partake of a couple of hot dogs that I cooked (or mostly cooked) over the open flames at the fire pit.
