Scenes from Graham Oaks

I visited Graham Oaks Nature Park the other day. It wasn't very bird-y, but I did see lots of swallows and goldfinches.

There are a lot of open fields that have been planted as oak savannah. Part of the trail is open for dogs and next time I might bring Maggie.

I've been inspired by two blogs that show a special part of nature and photography:
Resurrection Fern:
Cozy Homemaking:

Since I didn't see much to photograph, I tried to look closer and see what I could find. I don't have a macro lens, but I was able to get close to some things and crop them to give them that macro feel. I think I need a macro lens, don't you?


  1. Swallows are always a lovely sight. Beautiful shots--so many autumn-esque golds & browns! I went to Forest Park the other day and saw SO many little pacific wrens bobbing about. What a treat!

  2. Great photos!

  3. hi !
    I noticed your blog when checking my blog stats, and I'm glad I did. Your photos are lovely, really, and a macro lens just would be the cherry on top. If you don't have a "vision", you can have a macro lens & it won't make a difference. Do you see what I mean ?
    Thank you for mentionning me and my best friend. I couldn't be happier to see our names side by side ! :)

  4. you have such an amazing eye for detail that your present lens is capturing.
    The most expensive camera in the world can never replace that.

  5. Your photos are beautiful, the lens might make more accessible to you, but you have the eye for it right now. Lovely!

  6. I love the tan grasses everywhere. You did find many wonderful small interesting thing. Certainly can see the season changes coming here. Wonderful images.
