Today I visited a nature preserve that is on my way home. It is an old tamarack forest that is surrounded by a wetland. At one time, this used to be fenced off and in the wetland are the remnants of an old fence that is no more.
About every other day on my commute to and from work my route takes me past a prairie area in which this rather tall grass is blowing in the wind. When driving past they look rather soft, so today I decided to stop and take a look. I am not sure what type of grass this is, but the appearance close up was not as i had thought it was while driving past it. Non the less, it is day 61’s picture.
As I drive around our area lately, I am noticing more and more abandoned silos. This one is on my commute to and from work right on the edge of a park. I am sure I will be taking many more pictures of the other silos around the area.
It goes to show you that timing is everything. This morning there was a bit of wet snow falling to mess with the morning commute and this afternoon it was in the upper 30’s and all of the snow is now gone.
I know that I have not said it at all, but comments are always appreciated on my posts. Let me know what you like and frankly, what you may not like or could have been better! Thanks for visiting!
Here is a classic perspective shot of railroad tracks that I took this morning. The textures seem to lend themselves to black and white shots with a little added grain. Sometimes I miss the good old film days and Tri-X!
