Supermoon

With a forecast for rain tomorrow night, I headed to East Beach Norfolk to take some Supermoon pictures. I wanted to get an interesting foreground to help add some scale to size of the moon. Canon 7D Mark II, 1/40sec @ f/13, ISO 200, 400mm focal length.

Day 59 - Winter Walk-Off 2016

Today I accepted the Winter Walk-Off 2016 Challenge from fellow blogger Les Parks and his A Tidewater Gardener blog. I decided to head to one of my favorite places in the neighborhood, Turtle Lake located in the Carolanne Farms Neighborhood Park in Virginia Beach. This area is part of the Elizabeth River Nature and Canoe Trail on the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River.

I start my late winter journey with a crocus along the way.

Enter the park where Challedon Drive and Gainsbourgh Road meet.

A pair of mallards swam over to greet me.
