Helicopters

2017 has certainly started out with some weather that is tough to find photographic inspiration out of!  It has been anywhere from dark and dreary to foggy to dripping wet from rain.  Still, there are always things to see if you look for them.  This image shows a few Maple tree seeds (helicopters) still hanging on in the winter.

We went out to explore the newest addition to the River Walk along the Chattahoochee on Monday.  There is a beautiful board walk that cuts the corner from Riverside Drive to Wileo Road.  The walk crosses over the wetlands that sit on that corner and are populated by many geese, ducks and other birds.  You can park along Riverside Drive at the play area and walk across to the opposite end just across from the Chattahoochee Nature Center.

It was a bit wet and raw when we took our walk but well worth it.  I will have to make a regular trip out here as there is also an eagles nest at the Nature Center.  We heard the eagles calling but have not seen them yet so, I will keep trying.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
