An eerie sort of feeling

This is a picture I took a few weeks ago over at another local park, this time Emmenegger Nature Park. I didn’t really notice it so much when I took the picture as later when I started to pursue through the pictures I had taken afterwards.

TreeLichen

It was in the middle of winter but the lichen growing on the trees had an almost neon look. I love how it stands out in the middle of the woods when everything’s so brown. I’m hoping to get back out on Saturday to take some more pictures.

Beauty in the unlikeliest of places

So the picture I’m posting tonight is one I took just a few days ago out at Castlewood State Park. To me it’s one of those pictures where it may not look beautiful when you first come up to it but, upon further reflection, there is beauty in this tree.

I guess it goes back to the old saying, beauty’s in the eye of the beholder. To me, it is beautiful.

Sunset in the neighborhood

While I still haven’t gotten any of my pictures uploaded yet on my photography page, maybe this is just the way to go for a while, with all that’s going on. This is the sunset last night from our neighborhood.

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’ve always had a fascination with the clouds and the sky. Working where I did for almost fifteen years, until recently, gave me the opportunity to connect with them even more because the library where I worked was on the twenty-second floor.

Turns out one of my sweetest friends just told me, it’s the first day of Spring. So happy Spring Equinox!

Spring time

So with all that’s going, I thought tonight I would just post something simple. Today, I noticed some crocus flowers that I thought had already bloomed but apparently I was wrong.

Anyway, here’s a picture of them when they were in full bloom, early in the morning:

and after they had boomed, in the late afternoon:

Something so simple, yet so beautiful. Happy Spring!

Yellowstone National Park or ecosystem

This is a video that I just came across recently but it’s actually from several years ago and it’s a perfect example of how I believe that in nature when you upset one piece of the pie, the rest of the pie is upset as well.

The story/video is entitled “How Wolves Change Rivers – video by GrrlScientistover at The Guardian. It’s really a quite amazing video and I must admit I learned a lot about how just the wolves in Yellowstone affect the whole park.

Blue world

Over the years I’ve read how a lot of animals in the oceans eventually began to come out of the water and inhabit the land, so this article tonight would only make sense. That earth was at one time mostly or completely water.

The article is entitled “Earth may have been a ‘waterworld’ without continents 3 billion years ago, study suggests by Joshua Bote over at USA Today talks about just that. I remember learning years ago that the human body is seventy percent water, which is what the earth is today.
