Beautiful Mid-May Morning Walk at Ojibway Park in Windsor
Back in mid-May - I had woken up early and gone for a walk at Ojibway Park before work. I often try to tell myself just to enjoy the moment, and not reach for a camera - but as the sun broke though the clouds, I couldn't help but snap a few photos at Ojbway Park's main forest area.
These photos are unprocessed, straight off my cell-phone, but perhaps my phone used some built-in HDR post-processing.
A talented birder on ebird mentioned on his profile that birding is not a destination - its a journey. That is great advice as there is so much to enjoy beyond high counts and mega-rarities.
Enjoying the morning sunlight breaking through the mist, in complete solitude, surrounded by nature gives a wonderful peaceful experience that money can't buy. The sound of birdsong, the smell of the soil, the warmth of the air against winter-weary skin, the colours of new plants bathed in golden sunlight. A delight for all the senses .... Just thought I would share some scenes from Ojibway. Enjoy.
