The morning sun is rising later now and that gives the OFM and his camera a noticeably different angle on the sunlight in the morning for us. We still get out for the walk about the same time each morning but now the sun is a lot lower. It has put a new dimension on the type of pictures we can make happen.
For instance this is the water wall at the entrance to the water park. We have not caught it with so much sun reflecting before but it makes a pretty good sight as the Walking Team meanders through the area.
An old tree friend on the trail has been slowly surrendering to natural deterioration for eight years. This year we can see way into the tree and it is showing cracks on the outside. We will miss this old friend at the inside corner of the curve when it falls. Here is what the interior looks like for now.
As the Team meandered quickly along another part of the trail, a beam of sun shined on an odd part of another tree. We have been walking past this tree for eight years now and it is the first time this tree critter has stuck its head out to greet the Team as we passed by. We exchanged hellos and moved on. Does anyone know the name of this type of tree critter?
The OFM is still holding up to these speed walks as he calls them. In fact today he made about another half mile. That puts us close to four miles in an hour and fifteen minutes. AND he is still walking tonight.
With the wild weekend here at the big park this weekend we are not sure what we will be doing for Sat thru Monday. The big shootem up re-enactment of the Battle of Decatur is this weekend near the creek. We have no idea what all else is planned but the campground is 113% full for the long weekend.
The OFM Teams plan to keep a camera handy and work diligently at trying to have tooooo much fun.
