A Winter Walk

This past Sunday I was still nursing a problem with my hip.  Rather than do my normal four or five miles – it was beautiful outside, though brisk – I took my new DSLR out for a walk on my normal running route.  Below are the pictures that came from that walk, including one of the moon out in the clear blue sky.

    • Last Sunday was so beautiful, although still a bit nippy out. It was a great day for a walk. Today, no walk…a project to do and then hockey!

  1. Gorgeous! I love taking walks. There is something so calming in nature!

    P.S. I just realized that I have a friend living in Ithaca. She blogged about the great snow storm and I thought of you and that Twitter picture. It made me smile. : )

    • I am just about 35 miles from Ithaca, go there all the time. Usually, they seem to get more snow than we do as they do experience some lake effect off the Finger Lakes – Cayuga in particular. Is she on Twitter? Maybe I met her last weekend at the TweetUp.

  2. Nicki, These shots are beautiful. Seeing them makes me realize how different our landscapes are. I have no context for surroundings such as yours. I’ve lived in California all my life, and look out at green hills all the time…except in the summer when things are brown…sort of the opposite.

    • Julie – I understand. I have lived in the Adirondack mountains where what is here is nothing. I have also been to both the Sierra Nevadas and the Cascades. I have seen the California hillsides in summer, as my mom use to live in San Jose. Now she is in the desert and I am always amazed at the green.

  3. The one thing about taking a camera out on a beautiful walk is that you are sure to capture amazing moments. ones that you might miss without your camera in hand. I love these. I’m glad you were able to enjoy the outside even with your sore hip. Feel better!

    • Becca – I frequently wish I had my camera with me when I run. I have always love taking photos of nature and have tons on my two computers. Thanks for the feel better. Have to hope so as the half marathon is two weeks from today.
