With the inspiration from the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge’s theme of Wanderlust, there may still be a couple of images that I’ll share.
In this 4th episode, I’d like to share another tale of wandering about. This occurred during a weekend of moose photography in Baxter State Park in Northern Maine. The group that I was with was rather loud, so, after clearing it with the tour leader, I went for a bit of exploration on the other side of the pond where we were shooting.
Which led me down this wonderful path surrounded by mossy ground…
This was one of those paths that you just want to follow, as you know that there’s something magical up ahead. And sometimes there isn’t… I enjoyed this path as it led me to more small ponds, none of which provided really wonderful photo opportunities. I even tested out the moss to find that it was indeed really soft!
Sometimes, it is just the joy of following a path, even when you don’t know where it leads. And in this case it was also the joy of finding some solitude.
Oh, and by the way, when you’re in the woods, it is wonderful to be quiet and listen to all those little sounds of Nature; loud conversations carry for at least half a mile!
