This is the first edition of a series of blog posts I am doing as collaborative with a group of very talented photographers from all over the world. Heather Robinson initiated this blog circle, and invited me to be part of it: thank you, so very honoured. This series has for purpose to share our adventures in the wild. We all share a love for going on short or long adventures in nature and we love taking our lens of the camera for a fun effect (called freelensing”).
It is no secret that i love spending time in nature, and that it refreshes me. It makes me feel alive. I am grateful that my kids share this love of nature and adventure.
I thought I would be able to go on some wonderful adventure in may, but all we had this month in Massachusetts is rain, rain, rain and rain. I kept waiting for a nice day but it never came, so yesterday I headed out to our local conservation area, which is just around the corner form our house. We actually call it the swamp and most of the wildlife we see consists of snakes, which gets Dyllon, my 6 year old, very excited. Luckily I did not see a snake yesterday, but we found some beautiful wild flowers in the water which now adorn my kitchen table. I confess that I struggled to shoot this because I am longing for sunshine and summer looking photos 🙂
I would like to introduce these images with a lot of green, thanks to all that RAIN, with a poem:
Into something better.
Next on the circle is the work of Kelly Sutton from a Thousand Oaks, California. I have admired her work for a few years now and you will not be disappointed, and my guess is that it will be a lot more summery :-).
You can read and admire Kelly’s work in this link.
