On this US Thanksgiving Day, in the midst of pandemic and loss, I give thanks for the simple beauty we find along the way.
Sunlight at Mendon Ponds
Met up a friend a couple weeks ago for a photo walk in Mendon Ponds Park, another favorite place. It was a beautiful day with the sunlight filtering through the leaves.
There is a lovely little extension to Durand Eastman park extending out along the road through the park to the main street on the east.
It has the most expressive trees.
Sunday evening we managed to get a bunch of us together for an outdoor communion service on the little rise behind the church.
I tried to boost the contrast as I have done with others in this set, but did not like the results at all. I was going to dump it. Then I looked back at the original negative scan and decided I rather liked it.
Playground in the park
There is a lovely little extension to Durand Eastman park extending out along the road through the park to the main street on the east. It’s an easy place for people to stop with their children
All quiet on the golf course
The Yellow Ski Trail winds its way up and down the hills and ridges around the golf course.

Yellow ski trail
If I want a long walk at Durand Eastman Park that does not follow the lakes, I take the yellow ski trail.
