I wasn't exactly sure what had gotten ahold of me last week but I was feeling low. I worked hard to distract myself from the negative stuff that was swirling around in my mind but nothing I tried pulled me away from the blues for too long. By the third day I'd had enough. It was a sunny, absolutely beautiful Spring day and here I was feeling miserable. I decided I had to get moving, so I grabbed my camera and headed out to the lake.
It was a weekday so I pretty much had the place to myself but when I got there it seemed that even the wildlife were in hiding. About to give up and go home, I spied a Canada Goose on the shoreline some distance away. Now, though they are beautiful birds they are pretty plentiful so that wasn't exactly what I was in search of, but I decided I just HAD to get a shot of something otherwise this quest was lost. I pointed my camera, zoomed in as much as I could and was greatly rewarded with....BABIES! I was unable to see them without the assistance of my zoom lens but there they were and definitely something I so rarely get to see.
I stayed for hours taking shots of this adorable family and in fact, was rewarded with a lot of photo-ops as more critters made themselves known. I just needed to sit in this beautiful place, quiet myself and wait. Turned out to be a perfect antidote for me and a perfect afternoon.
