In an effort to be more adventurous and practice my skillz of photography, we’ve been making an effort to get out into nature a bit more. The most difficult part of this for me is the mosquitos. I hate them, they love me. Nevertheless we took some time yesterday to visit a couple of places near Devil’s Lake State Park: Pewits Nest and Parfrey’s Glen.
I like collecting things, but space can be an issue (example: I want all the huechera for my garden, or antique cameras, or bottles etc.). I can collect pictures of things, though. It’s started with birds, and as of yesterday, mushrooms.
‘Shrooms of Pewits Nest – Comment if you can identify these for me!
These were all pretty tiny mushrooms, except for the one in the top right. I’d say it was about 3-4 inches in height.
I expected this to be a short excursion, and while I think the landscape would be prettier in the fall, winter, or spring before leaves are on the trees, it did not disappoint. We had to work around people, which is fine (and expected!), but I think I may have missed out on some nice shots because people were in the way.
Once we found THE perfect spot to view the little waterfalls, my day was made.

This is the shot…the one where I would have like to have been able to spend more time taking pictures. There were people in the water and they didn’t show any signs of moving. You might not know they are there, but you can see the reflection in the water. I’m so crafty!
