In the previous post I mentioned my visit to one of my favorite getaways, Maryland's Eastern Shore. While there I took a quick side trip to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge which is located about a dozen miles south of Cambridge. The refuge, which consists of some 28,000 acres of marsh, wetlands and forests was established in 1933 to provide a habitat for migratory birds that use the Atlantic Flyway.

Trees are pretty common subjects for outdoor photography either as the star or in a supporting role. They have a certain majestic feel to them that has me constantly on the lookout for those that may fit well in a scene.

Road to Spring

Now that the month of March has arrived we can look down the road to spring and the soon-to-be signs of renewed life that mother nature will have on display. We look forward to the wonderful colors of budding trees, shrubs and flowers as they all join the chorus, providing a feast for the eyes. The image below, while taken in the Fall of 2011, represents the road to Spring.

So let's travel on down the road to Spring and Summer where the great outdoor life awaits. It seems that most in my part of the country have grown tired of Winter and are now anxious for the coming transition of seasons. You can certainly count me among them. :-)

On another note, the past couple of weeks have been very busy times which has cut into my site visitations. I will be catching up on that in the coming days.

Thanks so much for visiting!
