Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

Day in Davis, CA

Clear creek, perfect for upside down image!

It’s always fun to explore a new area.  Last month had the pleasure to do just that.  Davis is a college town that sits just outside of Sacramento.  The campus has an Arboretum that stretches alongside a creek through Redwood trees and is just lovely.

We lucked out on the weather–a rain shower passed by quickly and we had a day of clouds and sun.

Perfect weather for shooting!

Some flowers along the way…second shot is with my Lensbaby Composer!

A touch of color

 

Same subject different perspective

 

Also with Lensbaby Composer

 

Love the colors reflected in the water!

A Bird Sanctuary is also located in Davis–just as you are entering the area.  One would not think that a sanctuary for birds would lie next to a major freeway–but this one does.

Couple of shots to share the habitat as viewed through my Lensbaby…

Worth getting a bit muddy!

 

I shared more bird images on a previous post, but here are a few I couldn’t resist sharing again.  Simply because I do not see these birds often on my river trips, so it was especially nice to catch them in flight and enjoying the beautiful sanctuary.

In flight

 

I look forward to exploring Davis again!

  1. Very nice. I especially like the reflection images. Looks like it was a beautiful day.

    I never pulled off the freeway when I passed Davis. Obviously, I missed out.
