Monochrome Mondays

As a general rule, when I want to ‘go’ somewhere I prefer to go to a place near water of some sorts. That might be the ocean, or a lake or river. Being near water just makes me happier I guess. Occasionally though I might find myself on a hiking trail in the woods, marveling at the strength and resilience it represents. Old trees and young saplings. The conversations among different species of birds. Dense undergrowth of grass and wildflowers. There is a real sense of life in the woods-both the seen and the unseen.

Strangely enough though, I took this shot last fall in the woods….right next to the ocean as it happens. Cape Cod is a nature lover’s paradise. Though most people rightly associate it with being on the ocean or the bay, there are also dense areas of woodland. This photo was taken on the Atlantic Cedar Swamp Trail, within the Cape Cod National Seashore, mere steps away from the relentless Atlantic Ocean. A perfect place to go when you like being near the water…or the woods!

    1. Thank you! Here in the northeast we have to be careful about being in the woods these days (lyme disease) but it is so pleasant to camp in the woods and just listen to the birds and the wind rustling through. I still prefer the water but my second choice would be the woods!


  1. This has The Walking Dead kinda vibe to me….but I did just watch the season finale last night…which sucked btw. I know that has nothing to do with your photo….but that show is what came to mind. I’m sure you encountered 0 zombies while vacationing in Cape Code!! 😀
