Nature walk

One of favorite things to do is to grab the camera, take a walk, and just see what nature has to offer. Although Michigan doesn’t have all the exotic types of animals like I saw down in Florida, it does offer great landscapes, birds, and lakes/ponds. Today I went out to a new location, the Crosswinds Marsh Preserve in New Boston, Michigan. This is a great nature park that has many trails with different options. By far the biggest attraction are the wooden bridges that extend all across this vast marshland that is a haven for many types of birds.

I was able to capture some interesting angles and perspectives that bridges create with their depth. There were birds all around but unfortunetly I only had my 24mm-105mm Canon lens, so I was unable to get any tight shots. With that, I tried to get some more wider perspective shots and I think it worked out nicely.

While trudging through the Marsh I came across an empty birds nest. I felt like it was such a unique opportunity to attempt to tell a story with this one birds nest with it being so low to the ground and with the Marsh in the background. This picture is a perfect example of why I LOVE photography. One photograph can capture a moment that can hold so many stories and so many possibilities while freezing it in time.
