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!
