Gratitude Friday...nature's scenery

I am filled with enthusiastic, joyful, shout-from-the-rooftops gratitude for the amazingly beautiful wonders of nature!! I never tire of the scenes unfolding around me. Each and every sunrise and sunset seems to cover the world with ever changing patterns of light and shadow, shades of glowing colours. I have discovered that I truly love the quiet of early morning at the campground...when nobody else is up and I can sit alone at the lakeshore, listening to the water gently lapping at the shoreline, the wind rustling the marsh grasses, the chorus of birds all around...

A final set of photos from our Easter camping trip...

To my delight, there are red-winged blackbirds in the marshy area by the lake. (I have adored these birds since I was a child.) They were very shy and flew off each time I moved...then would gradually circle back. This was the best pic I managed to get, but the flash of red really stands out!

A few crocuses (croci?) were poking up through the ground on a neighbouring campsite...

This is the *greenbelt* along one side of the campground...not so green, but interesting in its own way.


The rest of the photos are of the area around the small lake, and the farm on the hill beside the campground...the first half were taken at sunset Sunday night...






The next few photos I took early Monday morning as the sun rose...






As always, each Friday I invite you to click over to Diana Strinati Baur's blog and check out the other Gratitude Friday Club blogs...

Wonderful photos. I would love to see one of those blackbirds! I love to see nature waking up in the spring time. Have a great weekend!
