Musings on cats, travel, gardens and life

During these times of social distancing I’m thankful to have access to so many beautiful places nearby; and as long as we are allowed to visit our state and national parks we will continue to do so.
So yesterday we drove south to Kanaskat-Palmer State Park to walk through the forest along the beautiful Green River.
Imagine my surprise when the first pictures I took looked like this!
Apparently I had inadvertently selected an artsy function while fiddling with my camera settings.
Here’s the river in its natural state.
And here it is in motion.
There were only a few folks on the river and with them we exercised social distancing.
But I am not social distancing from this man – we are in it together.

I love those first photos! What a naturally beautiful place to get away from everyone!
Thanks John! I liked those pictures too, and was surprised to get them! My camera has some pretty cool features but I didn’t realize I’d turned them on! And it was so great to find raw, wild beauty so close to home! 🙂
The Artsy shots loo like you had sat and painted the scene. They worked well, Susanne. 🙂
(I must explore the menu on my RX 10. I never think of those features)
Best wishes, Pete.
I was pleased with the results too! I use the function button on the RX10 to quickly adjust ISO and Picture Effect is directly underneath and I must have accidentally turned it on…. it’s fun to play with some of those options….
That was so fun to get by accident. I loved hearing the river. Thanks.
There’s nothing like the sound of a flowing river! 🙂
I loved the sound of the river in your video too! And I especially like your caption on the last photo🥰
Aw thanks so much!! Glad you enjoyed it! 😍
Those first couple of photos look absolutely amazing, Susanne! We are thankful for the opportunity to explore nearby woods and are learning to adapt to new living conditions just like anyone else around the world. Thanks for sharing and stay safe 😊 Aiva
Thanks so much! It was fun to ‘accidentally’ take those artistic photos! Stay safe and healthy too! 😊
The first two were pretty cool. Very surreal.
Weren’t they fun? Thank you. 🙂
