However, photographing the Park’s trees, grasses and undulating earth has gotten somewhat difficult because, at times, I feel like I’m taking pictures of something that could be brutally ruined.
I've always hoped my photos would tell a positive story about the land, the trees and why the Park should remain a tranquil place ... the reality is, there has to be monitoring, explanations and dialog with politicians and their associates. That “reality” has made taking pictures difficult.
Today, I pushed all thoughts of County bureaucracy aside and went back to the Park and spent time just walking and taking pictures.
I hope you enjoy these pictures and I doubly hope they convey some of the Park's beauty on this last day of May 2013.
