This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is to “share an image of your happy place, a secret spot you love, or a faraway location you return to again and again.”
Hmmm. I’ve thought about this for a couple of days now, and I’ve come to the truly sad conclusion that I really don’t have such a place. My subsequent conclusion is that I really need to find such a place.
The closest setting I could think of is the trail that runs along Burnt Bridge Creek not far from my house. It’s got some scenic spots that I like to return to and watch the ducks swimming down the creek, or watch Great Blue herons fishing from the banks.
But the “trail” is really an eight foot wide path of asphalt which roughly follows a strip of land cleared for a utility right-of-way, where hefty power lines hum and crackle overhead as they span from bulky tower to bulky tower. So, yeah… it’s not really a “commune with nature” kind of experience.
Nonetheless, I keep returning to the trail. Below are photos of one place on the trail where I have photographed the creek on a number of occasions.
(Note to self: venture out and discover my new favorite place.)
