Matte Finish

I’m reposting for this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge. I guess I was ahead of my time, but this photo of shadows fits the theme perfectly.

Repurposed: O & E Towpath Trail

One of three hiking trails I weekly walk is the Zoar Valley Trail, part of the Ohio and Erie Canal Tow Path corridor. The trailhead I use begins near the Historic Village of Zoar and accommodates hikers, bike and equestrian traffic. The river increasingly is used as a recreational waterway. Eventually this trail which begins near Cleveland, travels through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and 4 county park systems will reach the Ohio River following the old canal route. The portion I routinely walk has served as canal, fish hatchery and a sawmill trace. It has been nicely repurposed , which is the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme of the week.

Bold Ones

I thought perhaps getting shots of Bluejays and Cardinals along the trail would be a good starting point to try and capture bird photos. Its not been all that easy. I like to be moving and waiting is required (or a good dose of luck) to get a good photo. Anyway, here are a couple of winters bold ones. I hope to look back at these and believe that I’ve made some progress in a few weeks.
