When you drive to the end of a road and there are no cars in the parking lot – save yours – it is a pretty good bet that you will have the landscape to yourself. Such was the case last night at the wetlands just west of Eugene. Had the place to myself – well, it was me, lots of ducks, geese, bull frogs and no-see-em’s but not another human in sight.
What follows is a set of 3 images that more or less make up a time sequence starting from when I first walked up the road leading to the reservoir to the last shot as the sun set into a bank of clouds on the horizon.
Final set of shots before heading back to the car. Just a tinge of red in the clouds – was hoping for more but it did not materialize. Still and all t’was a lovely evening. It had been a while since I visited these wetlands – forgot what a joy it is to wander around in them – watching and listening.
