Roswell Riverwalk

by Bethany Plonski August. 21, 2019 386 views

Life has been a little overwhelming lately, but even though I haven't had as much time to post or comment in the last few weeks, I have been taking lots of photos. These are from a few weeks ago, but today's article about fog photography made me think of them.

When I visited the Chattahoochee Nature Center's butterfly exhibit, I intentionally parked over a mile away because I wanted to get out early, but the park gates don't open until 9 a.m. So I figured I'd kill a little time walking along the Roswell Riverwalk, which leads right up to the park. The Chattahoochee is usually shrouded in fog in the mornings, and it was especially beautiful seeing it in the day's first light.

I didn't realize it until I returned to the car later, but I parked across from the Atlanta Rowing Club, which explained why I saw several rowboats passing by.

The part of the riverwalk I visited was mostly a boardwalk, but in a few places it switched to sidewalks and foot paths.

There were a lot of hibiscus/marsh mallow plants blooming along the bank.

The nature center also owns a private riverfront trail area, so after I saw the butterflies, I went to check that out and met a mama deer and fawn. :)

I've been back to different parts of the Chattahoochee chasing fog twice since this visit. One of these days I'll get around to sharing the rest of those photos!

Thank you! I wasn't expecting much from that one because the boat was moving fast, so it was a nice surprise. smile

Wonderful atmospheric photos!!! Really love them. I often plan to get up early on a weekend, to make some fog-pics, especially in autumn, but I never do so. smile And in the week I'm always too much in hurry in the morning...

Thank you, Heike! Waking up early is a real struggle for me, I've always been more of a night owl. smile But once I get past the initial grogginess, I do enjoy how quiet and peaceful it is to be out first thing in the morning.

Beautiful pictures Bethany. Your strategy of getting up early and walking the extra distance really paid off! I love the reflectionshow you've  captured, especially in #6.

Thank you, Greg! I really liked that stretch of the boardwalk from #6. With the still water in the marshy areas and the shape of the boardwalk itself, there were lots of interesting reflections there.

WOW! Wonderful series! 
It certainly does pay to get up early, especially when you have places like this near by!
That Mama deer is teaching her baby to be vigilant!
#5 perfection!

Thank you so much! I am slowly being converted to an early riser through experiences like these. smile And I was surprised the fawn actually seemed more cautious than the mama, but I'm sure it will serve her well. I always worry a little for fawns whenever I see them, they seem so fragile!

My pleasure, Sis!
I wake without the need for an alarm, about 1/2 an hour before sunrise & make sure I have time for a ride or walk outside, to watch the setting sun, as well 
There are a couple of "mama" deer with their fawns, that hang around my place. I think these "moms" may know that raising their "kids" in or close to civilization, until they are old enough to fend for themselves, gives them protection from the large predators, like cougars, which we never see in town....

I can't even imagine waking without an alarm...I think I could sleep forever if I could get away with it. grinning 
Good observation about the mamas and their kids too!

Amazing photos, Bethany, every single one of them. But the ones with the fog made in golden hour, the one with the rowboat... o gosh, these are perfect! smile

Fog is a wonderful photo theme, and you've done such a good work Bethany. Also love the deer pictures

Thank you so much! I love fog and mist, they are one of the best consolations of living in a hot, humid climate. smile Looking forward to fall when there will be more opportunities to see mist near the lakes and smaller streams too.
