WildWood Park Bridgewater, VA 240This morning was just to beautiful a day to pass up, I had to go out and take some pictures, while not experimenting too much today in manual, all the pictures were taken in Auto Focus. However it was well worth it, just getting out and taking a leisurely walk in Wildwood Park, Bridgewater, Virginia , beside the river listening to the water flowing over the dam and watching the duck swimming and quacking was something I had not done in years now.

WildWood Park Bridgewater, VA 234The one nice thing I believe about photography is that it is the incentive to go out and take pictures that get you up and moving about. It has probably 5 years since I actually walked in the park, and today I did it even thought I froze my fingers off in the process as it has been below freezing today, but the sun was warm, I would have to say it is one of the most relaxing parks in Rockingham County.

WildWood Park Bridgewater, VA 169There are some essential items for photography that I must get, one being a polarizer, UV filter and Neutral density filter. The thing that will come next and will be here by next weekend is the tripod, with pistol grip ball head. This will help me to be more stable with close up work as well as landscape photography.

WildWood Park Bridgewater, VA 147As I said above the pictures would have been a lot better with a polarizer especially since most were of water and sky. I was astonished that I actually was in the park for about 2 hours this afternoon!
