Again with the dogberries

I know I’ve mentioned how much I like dogberries.

My camera has all kinds of photos like these:

A close up photo of bright red dogberries on a bare branch. There is grass below and in the background and a white SUV in the far background.
A photo of multiple bunches of bright red dogberries on mostly bare branches with a few yellowed leaves here and there.
A very close-up photo of bright red dogberries on the end of a bare branch just a little bit above some grass.

Creatures of the Night

We had to take our walk at night so I had a little fun with it.

Me and Khalee are creatures of the night.

We may need fancy capes for this.

A nighttime photo of Khalee with my shadow beside her and her shadow stretching out in front. She is standing on a sidewalk facing away from the camera, my shadow is falling on the grass next to the sidewalk.

Shadow Creatures

The grass on the slope down to the path is in the foreground, the asphalt path runs diagonally down towards the right hand side of the photo and there are trees and grass on the other side partially lit by the sun. Gaps in the lower branches of the trees create interesting shapes that look a bit like other creatures behind Khalee.

1) I wish I had the photography skills to have made a really artsy shot here.

2) I didn’t notice at the time that the gaps in the trees looked like short invisible creatures were standing behind Khalee and casting a shadow but I like the effect.

Some delightfully creepy trees

These trees are between the path and a cliff on the trail I hiked on Monday.

There’s no reason for them to be spooky but they kind of spook me all the same.

In a good way.
