Sunday Morning Wander - Skylands

Irises - Skylands Wildflower Meadow

I headed to Skylands this morning, with my side kick... My brother in law Robbie.. in hopes of finding the cone flowers in bloom in the wildflower meadow, alas they are just starting to show up. I was discouraged also by the irises really being at the end of their season.... However after a brief encounter with a black bear (He wandered off before I could get my zoom lens out... LOL). I did not want to waste the good light on an early Sunday morning and found if I was selective and looked for the best of the Irises there was still a lot to photograph. We really got some awesome shots. The rain or dew was still on the flowers and the soft light of early morning made for some great shots and a bear story to boot!

Hope your Sunday was fun and adventure filled too!

Keep Makin' Art!

Wow. I wish I had known. We were out of there by 8am, but if they were there I would have seen them. I assume they pre-shoot that segment.

If I was not out shooting I would have seen. I like Sunday Morning on CBS.
