I felt a little under the weather yesterday, mainly tension in my neck and shoulders, which probably brought on the dull headache, and headaches are very unusual for me. Since the temperatures were above 80 degrees today I decided to make one of those often needed visits to Blendon Woods park in the evening. I took the camera and tripod along, just in case I’d want to use them. I spent most of my time walking, then sitting for while on a bench, listening to the birds sing. I even had a squirrel above me dropping nuts on the ground, getting ready to harvest them for winter. By the time I headed back to my car the tension was gone along with the headache. As far as photos go, leaves seemed to by my focus and finding this unusual pattern of leaves was what I needed. For me, the quiet in nature is better than aspirin.
