“30 Days Wild – A Meandering Stream” by brett101

“30 Days Wild – A Meandering Stream”

A new theme for the month of June and the organizer describes it as follows:

“The idea is to spend some time outdoors each day - from a full days walking, climbing a mountain or a wildlife watching trip to the simplest of things like drinking your coffee in the garden in the morning, identifying a wildflower or feeding the birds.”

So we raise a toast to 30 days worth of outdoor photographs – seems like a great way to spend a little quiet time each day and I think we all need a little quiet time each day. Rainy days may be somewhat challenging but Mother Nature never shied away from a little rain, did she?

Today we took a little walk around one of the local parks which seem so prevalent in our area and it was nice to hear children playing at one of the not too distant playgrounds and pass others who seemed to be lost in the pleasant weather of late spring in NY. [1 June 2017]

“Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.”
~ William Butler Yeats
You should have fun with this theme, Brett. Your photo is lovely. I like the POV where we seem to be peeking through the bushes and observing the beautiful reflecting pond. Well done!

Reminds me of the song "As I went down to the river to pray" from the movie "Oh Brother Where Art thou?" Very lovely :D
