Spring Lake Trees

The Challenge of the Month for June involves photographing tree(s) and bicycle. Once again, I’m scouting around for interesting trees for practice before I tackle some impressive timber I have in mind. This kind of challenge is actually quite inspirational. I find myself riding familiar routes, but looking at the scenery with fresh eyes.

Today I pedaled a short distance to Spring Lake. The distance was short—only nine miles round trip—but it took me two hours because I stopped so often to photograph, or consider photographing, trees that caught my eye. I ended up with some photos from Spring Lake, some from the route to and from the lake, some from my local neighborhood, and some from my own yard.

    Nice ride – I love the eye of the elephant. The guys are demanding a floatie session on Spring Lake and some basking time on the horizontal tree. Be glad you do not have an aquatic-focused crew with you.

    Em, I’m already so slow — especially when the camera keeps jumping into my hand — that if riding with your guys it would probably require an overnight expedition to accomplish the nine-mile roundtrip between home and Spring Lake. 😉

    Tree-mendous pictures, Bill! My fave is of the grass in the foreground and the Surly behind it.
