Photos from my various adventures

Alone

As promised, here is another picture from my bike ride that morning.  Now according to the timestamp on my computer, these pictures were taken about 8:25 in the morning, so it was right as the sun was starting to come up.  After my brief stop at the bridge, I kept riding on the path between Hethwood and the creek.  When I got to the gazebo at the end of the path, I stopped for some water and to take some more pictures.  While I was doing this, a heron flew by and landed in the creek a couple hundred feet away.  Being the wild, adventurous person I am…I jumped the fence and chased after it.

I only had time for one shot before it flew away, so I’m glad it turned out alright.  While I wish that I had zoomed in a little more, I kinda like the addition of the morning sun lighting up the landscape in the background.  Probably one of the coolest things about the scene, and I wish it was a little more evident in the picture, was the mist rising off of the water in the creek.  It felt like looking into a cloud and seeing the heron just sitting there inside of it.  You can also barely make out the frost on the ground on the other side of the creek that’s still in the shade.  It would have also been neat to have gotten a shot of it taking off afterward, but I wasn’t quick enough to get that.
