Well, when I woke up it looked as if mother nature was going to keep me in from my Sunday Sessions. My boys and I woke up to a downpour that showed no signs of slacking off as the noon hour came. I told Lynden (my oldest) that I was probably not going. I have never let a sprinkle or light shower stop me, but a downpour, that is something that might drench my camera and without it there would be no Sunday Sessions. I took my boys home and had prepared to return home and clean my little pad.
By the two o’clock hour, the rain had stopped and I decided that three hours was more than enough to get at least 20 good shots, not to mention cover some more places on my ‘winter’ map. I texted Lynden to ask if he wanted to go, which I knew he would, but it is most polite to ask him so that he will ask his mother before leaving. After thirty minutes with no reply, I made my way to the heart of what, we in Lawrence County call, Lukin Township. I almost instantly had my first shot!
Everywhere I went this afternoon, the sounds of mother nature welcomed me! Whether it was the light drizzle falling down around me, or the remarkable sounds of water flowing through creeks, ditches and even places where water normally did not flow. I often stopped, rolled down my windows, closed my eyes and listened to the sweet sounds of serenity! To say the very least…it was awesome!
The water-soaked, gravel roads ment no dust. Since beginning this assignment over one year ago, I have seen my share of dust, so this is my preference over that, lol! It is interesting to listen to the soaked road as I drive along as compared to the rock hard gravel of the md to late summer. There is just something about this time of year. When old mother nature can’t make up her mind on what she wants, do I want spring, or do I want winter?
The wind was out, only on this trek, it was rather warm and inviting! At one point I leaned against my Jimmy, stuck my hands in my pockets, closed my eyes and took in the sensation of nature. I love a warm breeze, the bright sun light and the sounds of nature on ever occasion I can get to take any of them in!
I want to end by asking a question! I want to know, “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” Today I did and it was great! Please take care and Live With Passion!
