27Feb22 photos: Salt River, no horses

We went looking for the wild horses at the Salt River. I’d gotten a tip for where and what time of day they’re likely to be seen, so Climbing Daddy, Rocket Kid, and I took a road trip.

As you might have gathered from the headline, we didn’t see any horses. But it did give us the chance to explore a little bit of the Salt River where I’d not been before.

First, having the opportunity to shoot things in reflections was delightful. Most of what and where I shoot, there’s not water.

“Mom! My shoes are covered in mud!” Shocking…

The sun was low. Some things were too shadowed to take good shots, but others were simply lovely.

I love this one in black and white

Rocket Kid was captivated by things large and small.

Possible swamp monster?

The plants in a little overgrown spot made interesting designs against the sky.

It’s a beautiful time of year to be photographing anything outdoors!

Have a great week!
