Day 457 - Yesteryear's view

ISO 100, 98mm, f/5.0, 1/320 sec

Imagine waking up every morning and stumbling out to the front porch with a fresh cup of coffee, and this is your view.

Today I stood on a foundation of a house that was no longer there. It was probably built in the early 1900s. Hundreds of daffodils were in bloom, a pair of hummingbirds dashed into my view and were gone and this is what saw as I looked out over the horizon.

Today was the first week-end that the Finley Wildlife Refuge was open. We had high hopes of seeing lots of birds, but the reality was we only saw amazing landscapes.

The skies were a mixed bag of flat gray, blue with white puffy clouds and ominous rain clouds. During our three hour hike we were rained on, overheated and nearly blown over. It was beautiful though.


  1. Looking out at a sea of daffodils would be totally wonderful! Sounds like quite a hike.

  2. What gorgeous scenery/capture. Funny, sounds like you experienced 3 seasons in 3 hours. LOL

  3. Looks soooo peaceful, and sounds wonderful - except for that rain/overheating/blowing over part. :)
