On my way back home from picking up some decorating supplies I stopped of at Hillsborough forest park. Well I needed to get some air and a break from working. With the fine weather the park was busy and a parking spot was hard to find. I was in the park around 2.30 pm. This time of year the sun starts to set around 3.30 / 4 pm. So time to find a few shots on my walk around the lake. The low winter sun was throwing a warm light onto the lake and trees and I wasn’t the only photographer out and about.
Right lets get started.
Holly and cobwebs, the low sun back lighting and adding a rim light to the leaves and stems.
Blue skies and reflections.
The light breaking through the trees spot lighted these young ferns.
Sycamore leaf in its winter wardrobe.
I don’t know the name off this fungus , but if you were ever a Star Trex fan it might be call the Enterprise. Google it if you never saw it.
Mute swan Cygnet
A Cormorant taking off, it uses it feet to help it get airborne by pushing them against the water surface.

Thank you for joining me,
