Late Afternoon in Trexler Park

I am sometimes quite content to cocoon in my home in the depth of winter. Occasionally, the stark beauty of a frozen landscape does not hold as much appeal as the warmth of a fire, a good book, and a pot of hot coffee. But, today, as the temperatures climbed into the balmy mid thirties, once again I was drawn to the beauty of the outdoors, so I went for a late afternoon walk in Trexler Park in Allentown. Very quickly I was rewarded with the sight of a red bellied woodpecker foraging for insects in a tree and a blue grey nuthatch regarding me with curiosity from a nearby branch.

Late afternoon sun casting long shadows on a blanket of pine needles

Winter reflections in the chilly stream

Bare branches provide for interesting patterns against a winter sky
