A Walk In Penn's Woods

May 06, 2014  •  1 Comment

Last Sunday my wife and I decided to take a walk through Jennings Nature Reserve but first, a brief stop along one of the shores of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park.  It was a cool morning, the sun was shining making it feel warmer than it actually was.  However, the winds blowing off the lake took away that warm feeling fast.

It was a wonderful morning with plenty of sights to please the nature lover in anyone.  There are a lot of photos from this day so rather than comment very much, I'll let you sit back and enjoy nature through the lens.

Superb shots, Dan. I just got the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher for the first time on Tuesday evening, but looked very small in the finder with even the 600mm f4 and the 1.4 x. I still got some decent images, but they had to be extremely cropped.
