Recently, I’ve been expanding my hikes. Today, I walked from Groesbeek to Gennep, through beautiful forest lanes and spring flowers. How I’m enjoying the spring!
I return to this view – only a couple hundred meters from our home – again and again. The oak tree leaning over the bicycle path, the white birches catching the light, the ivy growing on the tree trunks: I know it by heart but it’s new every time.
Today was an ideal day to go out with my camera. Spring is really here, with the soft greens and striking reds of the young beech leaves. What a blessing to be able to enjoy this!
We’ve had some big storms this year, and many trees have fallen, like this old beech tree. Even in destruction, there is beauty!
Once in a while it’s great to go back and look at old unedited photographs. Sometimes they are gems waiting to be discovered!
As the days grow shorter and colder, there is a lot of moisture in the air, more often than not in the form of rain. It seems to wash away colors and details, leaving only the most essential information.
This place looks like it stepped out of a story book. The fall colors make it a truly magical place.
I took this picture, and looking at it on my laptop I thought, “Nah, too misty, and with those dead trees… Let’s throw it out.” Then I looked at it again today, and now I think it’s actually beautiful! Weird, how your perception changes from day to day…
That magical moment when golden light touches the leaves but a chilly morning fog still lies in the distance…
