An early morning walk in the woods


Notice the jackets. This shot was taken in the spring when it was still cool in the mornings. The setting is the Marjorie Carr Harris Cross Florida Greenway about 4 miles from our home.

I especially like the lighting and shadows in this one.

93° was the temperature in our bedroom 2 days ago! This is a lovely place for a walk. The luscious green is a feast for the eyes! Have a great Sunday, don't work too hard!

Wonderful walk. I am pretty sure that spring is more my season in Florida.

Nice alley - perfect for long walks:)

Jacob said...

It's more my season, too, VP!

Jacob said...

Ciel and all: There's a back story here. This couple arrived in separate cars; walked around one of the mile and a half loops; then back to the parking lot; got in their separate cars and left.

It was probably mid-morning.

Tres Interessant!

Looks like it would be a cool place to walk most any time of year with all the plants and trees.

You would post a shot of folks strolling with jackets on. How cruel as we shed our clothes to combat July's heat and humidity. You knew you'd kill us Floridians with such a quiet and serene view of a walk on a cool day. It looks delightful (I can almost feel the breeze.)

It is always so nice to take a walk with a friend. If you visited, I'd be glad to show you all kinds of neat places.

Jacob said...

Thanks, Lee. I can imagine there are some splendid sites for walking and hiking in and around Bend!

Lois said...

Very nice shot Jacob! I am really longing for those cool mornings again.

Ah for that cool DRY weather now ...

Walking is good! What's in a name? We had a dog name after the visit of Haley's commet, sadly he got ?diabetes and treatment was too costly, our grief was deep, I think it brings out grief that lay dormant. BTW there is subterfuge, Julia is only a pen name.

Jacob said...

Julia - Got it! So's Jacob!

Florida seems to full of jungly plants, mostly with scratchy spikes on them.

A forest attractive, I just walk me

Looks like a very pleasant walk....

You are really showing Ocala to be a beautiful place. This looks like and amazing place to go for a walk..... as long as there are no pesky alligators in there. Another great photo Jacob.

@ Dan - This is part of the Cross Florida Greenway - we have a 6-mile loop through various types of vegetation with a number of modest hills...it is a great place to walk, bike, roller blade, or run.
