Pond Scenes

The water was still and the air was hot. A few gulls and terns occupied old posts standing in the pond while an Anhinga dried off on a stump.

Even though it was early morning when you expect to see the birds feeding there wasn’t much going on.

Trees and grasses on the other side of the pond made interesting reflections in the water.

Pause Under the Live Oaks

I often pass this line of Live Oak trees when visiting Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and have taken more than a few photographs, none of which really convey the feel of standing under the old trees.

I love the twisted branches, Spanish Moss, and all that green. Last week I stopped as I passed by to soak in the atmosphere and took a few more images.
