in niagara

Last weekend, Spike and I had almost the whole weekend to ourselves. Delightful.

We headed towards Niagara. At one point, we pulled over and walked a trail for a while.

It's amazing what you can see if you look down while walking.

You'll have to imagine the sharply-sweet smell of these crabapples.

How cool is this abandoned hive?

Shrieky moment. I was wearing flipflops. And one of these, suddenly moving in an s-pattern near your open feet, is a little startling. "A snake! It's a snake! Aaaahhhh!!!! ... Wait I have to take a picture!"

I can't decide what I think about this shot. Is it annoying or interesting that the branches get in the way of seeing the water?

I think it's both, to be honest.

You know you want to see around that bend.

Happy autumn season to you.

I ALWAYS want to know what is around the bend! Patience is a gift I am lacking!! :)

the picture with the tree in the way of the water is actually a photography technique called "framing" and can be very visually appealing.

i liked the picture :)
