Photography can be challenging at the best of times. Try throwing a 2 year old in a backpack into the mix (“Hold still – Daddy’s trying to take a photo”) – you get the picture!
Today we took an impromptu walk in Paradise Meadows with both kids in tow (almost 2 year old Alden and 3 month old Clara). In the meadows are several ponds with both Narrow-leaved bur-reed (Sparganium augustifolium) and a number of species of rushes and sedges. I’ve always liked the play of the bur-reed on the water and the green at the edges of the ponds. I took these images at the end of our walk in a light rain – I didn’t really have time to set them up properly but I think that they worked fairly well.
