This morning's rain reminds me of a short walk I took the other day on my way to work. I was early, and there's a park that I like to walk through with my camera even when I have only a few minutes. It's a small park and not crowded early in the day. Later, it becomes a sports playground with fields for the local children which is great as they need a place to play. There's a dog park, too, off to the right which adds to the usefulness and fun of the park.
What's funny is when I am walking in the early mornings, I see all sorts of wildlife from birds to foxes to groundhogs to chickmunks and a gopher. I've managed to photograph some of these over the years that I have stopped at this park, but haven't gotten a really good image of wildlife yet.
Anyway, it was rainy and foggy the morning I stopped at this park. Seems the birds know before I get there that I am coming this time with my camera and hide. As I was returning to my car, I noticed the beauty of this image, the trees and fog caught my attention.
The purpose of my art is to find the beauty in nature, the unique beauty, something we miss as we go through our lives. This image is perfect. Simple, unique beauty.
