It feels good to be lost in the right direction…

 

Day 30012Day 300

This morning my husband and I met my sister for a run at a nearby State Park, and as he and I aren’t in shape (at all) she dropped us off at the car after 4 miles and continued running. We grabbed my cameras and headed out in search of today’s pic…

Barr Lake State Park isn’t in the most glamorous area of Denver, and as there’s no overnight camping or boating it draws much smaller crowds than other nearby parks. What it is known for is birding, and during our run we were able to catch beautiful views of blue herons, pelicans, hawks, eagles and a slew of other birds I can’t identify without my birding app. I must admit I was pretty anxious to finish my miles and grab my cameras to get started.

What a difference an hour makes, by the time I was ready to capture “bird photo greatness”, there were more folks running and walking on the trails, more light, more noise and no birds. As if to add insult to injury, my 300mm lens (I bought it used for cheap) stopped focusing and the image stabilization stopped working. I made due with a shorter focal range lens, enjoyed my time with my hubby and sister, and practiced my focusing and composition. With only a handful of use-able pics I decided to make a quick stop at a park near home to shoot some flowers I’d had my eye on for a bit. Lucky for me, the stars aligned and I captured a whole handful of images I’m proud to post. 65 days to go…
