I’m pretty sure this female mallard duck at Pioneer Park was posing for my camera. I can’t prove it, of course, since she swam away before I could ask her. That was kind of rude, if you ask me. Darn duck. Still, she is cute, so whatever.
I was down at Pioneer Park yesterday taking pictures of some mallard ducks, when this dog decided to go for a bit of a swim. The ducks didn’t seem too concerned, and the dog was perfectly happy to leave the ducks alone, and left the water when its owner called it.
It reminds me of a photo by guest photographer Maryann Nielson I posted a little while back of a dog chasing a duck.
I will probably post another photo of the ducks in a day or two, because ducks are cute.
Today is the final photo from my day trip to nearby Silver Falls State Park last weekend. This photo is of some of the green stuff covering the trees at the park — I don’t know if it’s moss or lichen or what, but I love it.
Recap of the photos from Silver Falls:
- South Falls (And Icicles)
- Take It From The Top
- On The Way To Upper North Falls
- Upper North Falls
- Nice Place For A Walk
- North Falls, Through The Trees
- Dance Into The Light
Thanks again to Dave (of StaytonEvents.com) and Maryann Nielson for taking me along on the trip.
This path leads to and from Upper North Falls at nearby Silver Falls State Park. When I was trying to think of a title for this post, the song Dance Into The Light by Phil Collins popped into my head. It seemed appropriate. That fog/light at the top part of the image is rather spiffy.
I think I’ll post at least one more image from Silver Falls tomorrow.
There’s a path at nearby Silver Falls State Park that goes next to North Falls (see a front view of the waterfall). I didn’t even know the path existed until Saturday, and it’s pretty nifty seeing the waterfall from that angle. I stuck my camera over the fence to take this shot.
I posted a photo of the waterway by Upper North Falls at nearby Silver Falls State Park from my trip up there on Saturday with Dave (of StaytonEvents.com and Maryann Nielson. Here’s a full on shot of the waterfall itself, which is 65 feet tall, and the rather large logs accenting the cascading water.
Tomorrow, I’ll have another photo from Silver Falls, so stay tuned.
Here’s another photo today from a day trip to nearby Silver Falls State Park over the weekend (see also: South Falls and the top of South Falls). This time we have Upper North Falls (and, yes, there is a regular North Falls, which I will probably post tomorrow, and I posted a picture of it last week, too).
I have a closer shot of the waterfall, but I liked the water and trees leading away from the waterfall. I’ll probably post the other photo later on.
I posted a photo yesterday of South Falls, a waterfall at nearby Silver Falls State Park. Here’s a view from the top of the waterfall, and at some of the trees surrounding the area next to the falls.
Tomorrow I’ll post another photo from Silver Falls, so stay tuned.
I am a happy camper. Dave (of StaytonEvents.com) and Maryann Nielson took me on their drive up to Silver Falls State Park again yesterday. We had a much more productive time than we did a few days ago (North Falls), where we saw South Falls, North Falls, Upper North Falls, and other scenic type things.
That means I will be posting photos of those things over the next handful of days. Today’s photo of South Falls was taken as close as we dared to get, as the path down was iced over and I didn’t want to fall down and kill myself. That would be inconvenient.
Stay tuned tomorrow, when I post something else from Silver Falls. I don’t know what it will be yet, as I haven’t looked at the rest of my photos. I should do that.
