This morning, the best hubby of all agreed to accompany me for a photo session at the river and here is the result:
The water is getting lower and makes for quite a pretty scenery.
Here I was trying to get the water look a little bit softer by decreasing the shutter speed. (Actually my first try at this with the new camera.)
Other "first attempts" didn't turn out too well. I would LOVED for this picture to be better. What a pity !
Eventually the heron did land and I got a better look at him and his prey.
There were lots and lots of them out, fishing for breakfast:
After watching the herons, we continued our morning walk along the river:
The vultures are feeding on the trash some picnickers left behind. Makes you wish, people would be a bit more conscientious about the locations they leave their garbage at.
These are some impressions of the trail that leads along the river. Isn't it pretty ?
We are indeed lucky to live so close to a park of such beauty.
What we left behind was a bunch of vultures on the rocks. I wonder if they enjoyed the sunrise as much as we did.
