Yesterday was a lovely day for a walk by the river.

We weren’t the only people who thought so! There were several people who parked on Highway 89 and scrambled down to the bike path with their families to enjoy the weather and nature.

I didn’t take any pictures of the people though.

Just enjoyed nature and the joy of photography.

Most of these pictures are from the DSLR, which is in its element outdoors, I think. (Except at night for some reason I have to figure out.)

The air smelled like wet pine needles and rich soil.

The river is very low because of the drought, but there’s a lot of beauty when it’s like this.

The calm water allows for a lot of reflections. I also love the mix of textures in this setting, the dried grass, rocks, the pines and water.

Then there are the ducks. I was so excited to capture this shot! I used the Panasonic for its stronger telephoto lens.

The Panasonic allowed me to capture these two as well.
