quiet trails

It's been nearly two years since I made this image of Canada geese squabbling at the Sandy Creek Nature Center's Clay Pit Pond. For awhile, I'd been strolling the network of trails out there nearly every day, camera at the ready. I've drifted away from the habit, but revisiting the image reminded me of my old ways and got me thinking about wandering the trails again. The image is misleading in a way. As I walked the trails, what I experienced mostly was zen quietude, not squabbling. The loudest noise was the crunching of my shoes. (The image is today's Photo of the Day on the photography page over at bobbrussack.com. Drop by if you have a mind to.) -- Bob Brussack
