I was out with my Cousin at a Mogadore Recreation Area on a wooded path that follows the edge of a lake taking a somewhat mild walk and taking pictures of whatever I found. And I found something very interesting.

I couldn’t quite find these in an online search. I was trying to get a picture of a Bee when I happened to look down and, BAM, these leaves right below me had these bright, vibrant purple spots on them.

My best guesses are a fungus eating away the leaves or larva of some kind of bug.

“Stone Vine”

I got to pay a brief visit to a friend’s house while on a trip to Pennsylvania. It was unplanned and I arrived shortly before they got home.

So. I meandered through the backyard snapping photos and caught this little guy crawling its way across one of the stones making up a sidewalk.

It just reminding me how nature will grab on and take back an area.

I owe my Cousin for spotting this little scene on some wooden steps in Wingfoot Lake Park, in Ohio.

I was so happy to break out my 18-55mm lens after having it sit in my camera bag forever more. It’s been a long time since I used it, but I’m still really happy to have it. I can pull out subtle and focus blur that I just love playing with.

Purple Flower

This reminds me of a line in a song I really like, “A purple flower came to visit me and landed on my window.” by a rock band called Undercover, on their album Devotion.

This photograph is slightly older. I took this at Quail Hollow in Hartville, Ohio. I also used my awesome Tamron 90mm Macro. I love that macro lens. I saw they made a newer version of it that includes a silent motor housing or technology and image stabilization! Wow!

I’d love to get that new version. It’s so very very hard to get crisp photos from a macro lens without stabilization.

I may have to start mixing-up the posting order of my photos, but my latest trip to The Gorge – Metro Parks in Cuyahoga Falls, Summit County, Ohio(USA) was the bulk of my journeys for the last two weeks.

I am planning some other excursions and trying to get in some other photos of architecture and people soon. There’s some interesting looking sites South of me for historical buildings and locations.

Gorge on Nature

So. This is it! My new favorite photo! Yep. I am so happy with this photo. My personal favorite photograph that I’ve ever taken, to date.

Like my other recent photographs, this one was taken at Cuyahoga Falls, The Gorge Metro Park in Cuyahoga Falls, Summit County, Ohio(USA).

There’s a tiny, wooden bridge that takes you right over this scene on the lower trail at The Gorge, on the return trip.

I’m tempted to try a large print of this and frame it for my mother. 🙂

Rock Under Path

My favorite aspect of this photo is the bright, sandy path contrasted against the dark, organic matter and wet mud under the rocky outcropping.

This was also taken at The Gorge in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. USA. I really enjoyed my visit there and am definitely going back. The terrain is so varied and there’s lots I’ve yet to see. I’m also greatly looking forward to visiting in the Fall and Winter months. I really want to find a place that I can get right down to water level.
