Continuing Along the Path
Canada Day today - a time to celebrate our country - so I thought I would top this post with a maple leaf.
I have reached 183 daily blog posts this year, each containing at least one photo from each day - half way along the journey of "A Photo A Day" in 2016. I walk this path with photography-sensitive eyes, always looking for a good shot and the story to go with it.
Summit Woods sits on one of the three summits of Mont-Royal. It is an oasis in the middle of the city - nothing but natural vegetation. The only man-made structures are a few garbage cans and a couple of boards depicting the flora and fauna of the forest. When trees fall, they remain lying there. You can see some quite decomposed with new plants growing on their surface. Others, like this one has fallen more recently - its strong roots having grown around a large rock dragged it up from the ground as the tree fell.
Patterns, swirls, - there is always something to see if you look.
Step back and you will see a new topknot of plants growing out of its once mighty trunk.
A flash of pink - a little surprise among all the green.
Looking back it has certainly been a full half year and now onto the next half.
