Goslings in South Park

South Park is a large Allegheny County Park south of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. As a boy we lived near to the park and it was a regular site of many adventures. We went to visit yesterday specifically to see the Buffalo and escape quarantine for a few hours. Our dog was stunned by the Buffalo and could not stop barking at them. Unfortunately where they were grazing made it impossible to get a good photograph of them.

There were a fair number of Canada geese in the park and on the pond a few goslings. It was great to get out of isolation and see such a sign of hope as the cute little goslings swimming with their mom.

Moment of Hope #10

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

Now is a good time for America to reflect. Time at home with family and friends is quality time. Breath deep and stare into a reflective pond or fountain. What do you see? Do you like it? Can it change? Should it change? If America has to change to survive a pandemic, how do we have to change to make that happen?

I look to nature for relaxation and solace. Even when this pond is still if you pause and listen you can hear the life and life always brings hope. Photographed at Lettuce Lake in Tampa Florida.

This is a pond in the spring. Pond are full of hope and new life in the spring. You can hear the peepers and see the baby turtles on their banks. Sitting and gazing into a pond and listening to the sounds provide and uplift to the human spirit.

Fall Reflections

I may be jumping the gun but nature’s color show is about to begin. This one was taken a few years ago before the impacts of global warming were so evident. Now it seems a lot of trees are dropping their leaves early and its been a few years since we have a had a show like this one.

Taken in the Pocono Mountains in the Delaware National Forrest.

Autumn Reflections

Autumn in The Pocono Mountains

The fall foliage was really poor this year around Pittsburgh. It was too long too late and the fall colors were sporadic. So I had to return to the vault to find a good image of the Autumn. This was takn a few years ago in Pike County Pennsylvania.

Finally Autumn

Finally, Autumn has arrived although the show from nature may not be as great this year because of the warm and dry weather. Searching the archives I found this. Taken a block from our old house in the Delaware National Forrest. The Pocono mountains are exquisite this time of year.
