@ my lovely "lunchtime retreat", a mere 7 minutes away from where I work.

Fuji S6000fd, ISO 100, 1/20s, F 4.0, shot RAW

It is easy to imagine that this spot can function as a place to "reload" - NatureĀ“s own cathedral

Beautiful picture

Thanks for the kind comments, guys! "tis a lovely place to "reload", as Torgny puts it, and I'm lucky to have it.

Bill, I agree with you that the trees are indeed a bit pale - in fact, this was my intention. It was a curious day, lighting-wise - complete cloud cover, but very bright, the clouds behaving (it seems to me) more like a diffuser of the sun's rays rather than obstructing. I shot this RAW, and in post-processing chose to go for a slightly delicate, ethereal effect.

Come to New Jersey for an extended lunch! We can walk the trails, meet the 2 new mallard families, and listen to the music of the water... in fact, we should invite the good Bahadir to journey with us!

You made it possible to imagine the music of the water and the treatment of the background makes it inviting to walk farther into the woods. You are so lucky to have that close to work. Do lots of people visit there for lunch?

Ah, this might be the very thing

Music of the water by mallard families would sound Water Music byHandel in the Nature's Cathedral there : )

Ah, JDar, not very many people are there at my "lunch time", which is about 3:00 pm, as my work hours are approx. 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. Yet, when there are any number of folks there, I feel it is too crowded! (selfish of me, I know).

New Jersey, though densely population and industrialized, urbanized, and suburbanized, is dotted with these lovely beacons of nature. Sadly, it seems that all lands not already designated as parks or protected wetlands are being (over)developed.
