World Wide Photo Walk - part 1

Saturday morning, bright and early, our group of about 40 photographers met at the Muttart Conservatory in the Edmonton river valley.  We started out in the gardens there - I love this shot of people busy capturing images.

I decided to show you my nature photos in this post and my city photos in the next one.

This is one of my favourites - it's really hard to capture insects but this little grasshopper was most cooperative :))

Also hard to photograph are birds!  I was inspired to try my hand at it by some photos my nephew shared in his presentation last week - thanks, E!

These were the most interesting buds / blossoms on a plant that had leaves like rhubarb.  I think they are some sort of thistles. 

I really like the composition of elements in this one.

It has been absolutely amazing - and so, so inspiring  - to see other pictures taken on the walk.  You can check it out at our Flickr site.    I took 270 photos in the 2 hours and already I know of some shots that I missed.  I would definitely go on another of these walks again sometime!


  1. Great photos, Mom!! You captured some very beautiful elements of nature. Great job with the animals and insects. I can't wait to see more.

  2. Good for you! Beautiful shots. Did you know that last year's winning photo had a bird in it?
