Meramec river

So this past weekend I got the chance to go take as many pictures as possible in Emmenegger Nature Park before my camera battery ran out. I had unfortunately forgotten recharge my backup battery prior to going out.Anyway, this picture turned out this one was one of my favorites.

I was just walking along the edge of the Meramec while the sun was reflecting off the river. I think that’s what really makes the picture, at least to me. It was also nice just getting outside to take some pictures.

Yellow to white

So again, I’ve been searching throughout my yard, looking deeper into nature and tonight I found another dandelion. This one, while also in full bloom, is at the end rather than the beginning.

In fact, I took several pictures as I became fascinated with both the end and beginning of life with the seeds. I actually thought of entitling this post life to death to life but instead went with the colors of nature.

Your own back yard

As I’ve said before, I really miss going to the parks and taking pictures these days but it’s allowed me to take a closer look in my backyard and neighborhood. Using the sun as a backdrop to try and create some beautiful pictures.

Today’s picture is one I took this morning while the sun came up as I looked out over the neighborhood. I was watching the sun as it reflected off some of the trees. Maybe I’ll take some moreĀ  pictures tomorrow.

Bees in the front yard

So I just had the yard cut a week or so ago but, before that I had lots of little flowers throughout the front (and back) yard and since I was off work for a couple of weeks there, I took a few pictures of the flowers. I even got a couple with some I believe to be plaster bees just like the one at Powder Valley.

Anyway, since I’m back to work and the parks are officially closed these days, I’ve been going back through my pictures. This is one I took during that time off. There’s something about bees that to me are just so enjoyable to watch and so with that, enjoy!

The flower and the ant

Despite all that’s going on all around us humans, the rest of the world continues to move on as is evident with spring. To me, this picture is just another example of nature moving on with this ant and flower. For them, time moves on.

This is a picture I took the other day of a flower in my neighbors front yard. As I took a look around, it was easy to see how nature does not slow down or stop. Hopefully we can all see this and say hello spring!

Skyline

As you can probably tell, the sky is one of my favorite subjects for taking a picture of and last night we had some storms come through, which usually creates some nice settings and last night was no exception.

For me, this was just a rather simple picture but one that for some reason just one that really caught my eye. It’s looking over the trees in our neighborhood as the storms made their way through the region.

Dandelion

I guess you just never know where you’ll find beauty. Tonight’s picture comes from my backyard. With all the parks in St. Louis County now, I’m having to look a little deeper to find nature.

I’ve actually spent the last couple of days taking pictures in my front and backyard. That said, I’ll probably keep looking there but you never know. I guess tomorrow will be another adventure. So stay tuned!
