Wow, it's been a while! As I referenced in my last post - we sold our house, and built a new one in Centre County Pennsylvania. And I totally underestimated the effort that would be. We have been living in the new house for 7+ weeks, and I am finally starting to see some daylight. In the past 2 weeks or so I have started getting out to explore the area a little more with my camera gear. The first little adventure to share was an impromptu stop at the Shiloh Road section of Spring Creek. I had been on the lookout for sunflower fields and hadn't found any - but when I headed down here I was tickled pink to see the wildflowers in full bloom along the creek. A great spot for some nature photography!
And where there are flowers, I can usually find butterflies. Not sure I've ever seen one with this pattern on the wings before - very pretty. I'm grateful this butterfly stood still long enough to get a picture!
I wasn't able to spend too much time here, but thoroughly enjoyed the time I did spend there, and need to get back for a longer hike next time. The layers of summer color in this next photograph just warms me up.
The summer yellows make pretty pictures!
And the yellows (and greens) make a great backdrop for the purples!
Such a peaceful spot! I can't wait to get back out for more photography in this location!
I am looking forward to sharing more photography as I explore Happy Valley and the surrounding Central Pennsylvania area. I also have travel plans for late summer/early fall that will let me explore past Pennsylvania and I will be sharing photos from those trips as well.
All photographs were taken with a Canon 6D with Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM.
