Practice makes perfect … or so they say. I think that’s a ‘truth’ that needs to be modified a little. In any event, as the weather was very agreeable yesterday, I brought my camera when we went out to run errands.
It felt as if it had been ages since I’d been in the park. In an older post, I wrote that all the ducks had gone south. Another statement that needed to be modified. They are a lot fewer than earlier years, though.
I used to shoot ducks in flight with my camera! This is where the ‘out of practice’ comes in. Ducks were flying in and out, and I kept shooting, happily. One image looked really good on the little display on the camera! When I uploaded them to the computer, later, it was such a disappointment … it wasn’t even in focus. Nothing seemed to work, so I need to get out more … but not today! We’re under a rainfall warning! It hasn’t started yet — only dense fog now.
It was kind of sad to see how many trees had broken off during the ice storm, and even more are still totally bent over! In the park, they have a lot of work to do … cleaning up all the hiking trails. It’s a huge park, considering it’s within the city limits.
The ice on the lakes was nice and shiny … really smooth, and would be ideal for skaters. Only saw one, though, but it was afternoon — most people are working, one would hope.
