I was making my breakfast this morning and noticed, like every sunny morning this week, the shadows created by the morning sunlight coming over the trees through the kitchen window. But this time, I was attentive to what unfolded before me. But soon, I had my Fujifilm X-T2 in hand experimenting with light and shadow. I worked with the light as it changed and spread over the objects in my kitchen and living room.
Looking for Early Saxifrage on the Lambertville Nature Trail
Bhavna woke up late. It’s her birthday today, so she’s excited. I convinced her to take a hike along the Lambertville Nature Trail in Lambertville. We found a lot of small flowers growing along the rocky side of the trail.
After the hike, we drove to her sister’s home where we sat in the backyard, at a 10-foot physical distance, and Bhavna enjoyed her favourite liquor, a shot of tequila. We had a birthday FaceTime session with the rest of the family before cutting a decadent thick chocolatey three-layer cake that Shaan made. At 7 PM, we had another virtual birthday session with her college friends over Zoom.
I hope she had a good birthday. At least as best as I think we can have in the current situation.

Those sunset shadowy colors are very soothing. I really enjoyed those first 2 shots.

I need to figure out what to do with the damp and overcast days.

Nice shadowplay, Khürt. Happy Birthday+1 to Bhavna. The flowers do look similar although the stems are a bit longer than I usually see but they are variable.

I wasn’t quite sure they were the right flower because the stems were so long. They were everywhere in this one section of the trail. A large colony attached to the steep rocky sides of this section of tail.

Here's an image with a long stem. Most of the ones I see are solitary although there are others separated by short distances. I'd love to find a colony.

Oh! Thanks for that. This image looks just like the location where I found mine. Most were growing on the very steep end of the embankment and it would have been perilous work getting a photograph. I settled for the ones right at my feet along the path. Google Maps doesn't show the steep drop on the trail.

Yep. Be safe. No picture is worth a fall.

Wow, that cake really looks good!
Khürt Williams20th April 2020 at 1:25 PM
We have so much of it left!!! I think there are enough calories in that cake to feed us all month. ?
