A Morning Stroll on the Prospect Barrens
I enjoyed a stroll on the prospect barrens in gorgeous weather, bright sunshine and light winds. Birds were scarce except in the wooded clumps of trees that stand out on the barren. I tried to photograph these birds, mostly warblers, but I was defeated by backlighting and the soft bog like mud that prevented me from holding a steady position. It is annoying when focus on the bird is almost obtained and then one or both of one's feet sink into the muck and a topple into the mud is a better possibility than a good photo.
Despite the photographic challenges the place was magical and a lift to my spirit.
