Trails of Light

There are a lot of beautiful parks in Pennsylvania near where I live. One of the nicest in my opinion is Lackawanna State Park. It's quiet, peaceful, and relaxing, even when there are a lot of people there. It's large enough you can go on some easy walking trails and get away for a bit.

I took a bunch of photos on our walk around the lake this time that we went there, and after looking at them on the computer later I found they actually kind of took on a theme: Trails, and light shining through the forest.

I've been trying to improve my editing skills too, I use Lightroom & On1 Raw which I started playing with..so let me know what you think :)

At the end of our walk, near the lake, I spotted a little bird house. Actually 2 bird houses put together back to back. I didn't see anything in the one side so I walked around to the other, and at the moment my husband alerted me than a bird popped out of the other side! As soon as I moved it flew of course, but luckily it was to a nearby tree which it stayed a while and let me photograph it.

Thanks! The bokeh is just from either getting close up or zooming in to something close up... it's On1 photo raw, here's the weblink: https://www.on1.com/products/photo-raw/

I really love the beauty of this place and the diffused light throughout

Yes it's so beautiful walking under the trees when the light is like that!
