Trees

Gills Like a Mushroom


March 11, 2017

When she wandered away from the lagoon at the Venice Myakka River Park, Lynda came across a dead and upended tree that may have been a cypress. The remnant of the root end was weather-sculpted in a way that reminded me of the gills of some mushrooms.

Almost walked into the twigs of this swamp locust (Gleditsia aquatica) growing along the lagoon.


Starting with the Lagoon


March 8, 2017

When I go to the Venice Myakka River Park, I usually spend most of my time at the lagoon there. On February 12, however, water lettuce covered much of the water’s surface, and confounded with a cloudy sky, I failed to catch the reflections that often intrigue me. I was at the park as the second outing with my new friend Lynda. While I tarried at the lagoon, hoping it would still speak to me, she wandered along and soon found the photography event of the day (you’ll see later) and phoned to alert me. All in all, thanks largely to Lynda’s superior ability to spot potential photographic material, it was a great day. . . . Willow trees proliferate in this park.

Snow in April 2016—1


January 18, 2017

For the first time in many years, I was back in Ohio during April last year. We had snow the second week of that month, and I couldn’t have been happier about it. I’d been missing photographing snow, and there was my chance. I no longer owned boots, however, so didn’t venture past the windows and front porch of the house. . . . Looks like I never posted these.
