Connect with Nature

Unplugged

Unplugged

It can be hard to disconnect from our computers and social media. I want to keep up with all the posts of my blogger friends. I don’t want to miss anything. Still, it is good to take a break from the screens-even if I do find myself rushing to share a story or picture from that time away!

Taking a Sunday drive just to look around town, or to get away from town, can be a good way to unplug. Today, I went to a nearby park to investigate the view.

The leaves were mostly fallen from the trees, leaving a clearer view of the creek. Clinging to autumn, some bold red leaves were left to frame the water bank. The air was crisp, but not too cold. The sound of the water flowing across rocks was calming.

Since the park was empty, except for my brother and me, the walk around park pathways was quiet. The day was perfect for contemplation and appreciation of nature.

As usual, I felt compelled to take pictures of the world around me. It can be hard to put the camera down. I came to have a greater recognition of the beauty that surrounds me when I started taking more photographs. I feel fortunate to live in a place where I can take a peaceful walk in quiet surroundings.

  1. When we were both working, we made a point of going out of town on a Sunday with the dog. We saw so many unusual things that we devised a treasure hunt for my work mates who apart from the office didn’t seem to get out much!

  2. Isn’t it great how photography changes the way we see the world around us? I have a whole new appreciation for all of the elements of nature since I’ve gotten hooked on photography. Lovely post and photo, and I agree completely about the need to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature!
