Seagulls of Hanover Parkway – 20140323

So in winter, the geese yield some water to the sea gulls. Or perhaps the sea gulls choose to go more inland. In northern PG county, the sea gulls tend to go to malls and not for shopping but for food scraps. But some of the malls are near ponds and lakes, the sea gulls take a dip and fly.

Spring was a struggle. Normally by March we would be warmer and drier.  Not this year. But I manage to get to Southern Prince Georges County, Piscataway Park.  It was a bit muddy after the snows.  Took theses off the fishing pier.

So Winter wasn’t giving up so easy this year but at Laurel Lake.  The seagulls, the ducks and the geese swam about.

So I was driving around on Soil Conservation Road and seeing what I could find. This is Alter Pond.

In theory we’ve managed to get to spring. As you can see it’s a bit desolate. Winter has quite given up yet.

The Lull before Another Snow Event – 20140316

So it was a cloudy day a lull before another event. The geese were foraging and the wood ducks swimming.

So I was doing an exercise using the camera’s black and white mode. This goose was strolling on the road. Inaminate objects sometimes to have an otherworldly feel when shot in black and white.

The Pond within a Lake – Feb 2014

It was cold, but it wasn’t snowing.  So I went to Greenbelt Lake and not many people. But an interesting phenomena formed because of the cold … A pond within the lake. Lots of seagulls, a goose or two, ducks and the big Heron were there.  The sun was nice!
