Isolation Photo Project, Day 19

Last week I saw so many Sourland Mountain wildflowers that I wished I had a macro lens. On Sunday, I rented the Fujinon XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro with the hope that I could revisit some of the trails where I found wildflowers on the weekend. Then, of course, later in the week, the governor and state counties closed all-state and county parks, forests and woods. Then the federal government did the same.

Some of the places where I found wildflowers were inaccessible. But it was too late to cancel the lens rental, which arrived on Thursday. I didn’t even open the box until today.

I’ve lived in this town for 19 years. I know some “secret” spots, places where I can get access to the woods. Areas that are not under federal, state or county jurisdiction. I won’t be telling you where those places are. I visited one such site this afternoon, but the air is too cold, and the flowers have decided to retreat. There is always tomorrow.

    Today is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to have the same experience I had last year. Last year, the weather was the same, except it was much warmer. It’s cold this morning (5°C) but clear skies and lots of sun and wind (feels like 1°C).
