That's because I haven't been walking for quite awhile now.
I believe it was late summer when I last went out regularly. And then the craft sale was looming, and work got busy, and I hurt my back, and Christmas happened, and the Arctic mass of cold air moved in, and ... here we are.
But yesterday I finally got out again. It was a relatively mild day (minus 6C) and I was dressed warmly so it was just refreshingly cold, not bitterly so.
I took my favourite route of several, and it felt like coming home. It was wonderful.
Having only a few routes can make it hard to capture something different on camera. The challenge is to either find something new in the same landscape, or look at something in a new way.
Here is what's being served up on the buffet line today.
A reflection of a tree in the puddle beside the curb
A different tree here. I love the new growth revealed on this one each autumn when the leaves fall. It reminds me of a brush cut (remember those?) or a porcupine.
Some evidence of the windstorm we had last week
The trail lights came on as I was walking. Again, I've tried to take pictures of this in summer, and it just doesn't work, so I was happy to see this one turn out.
That's it for this Friday. I hope your weekend is full of serenity and contentment.
Or, if you prefer, unpredictability and excitement. But only if you prefer :)
