Returning to my theme of ‘details transport the mood‘. What a wonderful spring-like afternoon this was. And who would’ve thought, after the icy morning and downpouring rain in the middle of the day!Originally, I was going to experiment with my fish-eye conversion lens, but it turns out that it produces mostly really crappy pictures (I’ll spare you the mess) and even though it was just to give it a try, the images are so blurry at the edges that it took the fun right out of it. I think if I ever want to go that route, I’d have to invest properly and not take a short-cut.
Anyway, so after that experiment had failed, I went back to catching the details of this wonderful afternoon. Most of the snow has melted and we sort of miss it. But you can’t beat having a creek of melted snow and rain in your backyard. We had set out to go for a walk, but didn’t get far. What a great way for everyone to be engaged and playing together.
Here’s to our Voyageurs traveling on the St.Lawrence, running into still frozen parts. Also, rapids coming up. I see a portage ahead!
No faces of happy kids needed to show how wonderful the day was. Hoping you enjoyed these details as much as we enjoyed playing in the icy creek!
