I am not used to using my smart phone still for a quick photo or video even though I have lots on it lol . I know, takes me some time to kick in with modern technology lol . Miggs and I have been doing our long walks every day and I take and use my smart phone for the step app and I also like to take the odd photo if I see something I want to snap a shot of , mined you the phone camera to me isn't the same as having my big camera in my hands doesn't seem to feel the same if yeah know what I mean which I am sure all you photographer's out there do lol .
The camera phone is handy though !
On our walk we pass by a huge field full of lovely corn , this corn must be at least 7 feet tall !
The view from this road at the top of our valley is amazing on a clear day . Can you see the wind turbines down there in the distance ? well there are a lot of wind turbine farms down here near the north shores of lake Erie .
Then on the other side of the corn farm there is a huge apple orchard that travels the entire road side I think I have heard that this apple orchard covers about 300 or more archers .
This is our favourite route to walk out on the country roads up here at the top of part of the valley .
There is so much wild vegetation in the ditches and a forest right at the edge of each side of the road to , it is amazing and soo peaceful with the amazing sounds of crickets , frogs and grasshoppers this time of year and the odd bird calling out .
The wild flowers and vines are in full bloom right now !
I have no idea what type of wild vine this is above , but it sure is pretty with it’s bright orange dainty flowers !
I just love the swampy look with the long grasses and the bulrushes .
No adjusting to these smart phone photos I posted them just as they are I will admit it does do a pretty good job though .
The leaves are slowly changing on the trees by the road sides now .
Miggs and I also like walking the banks of our Otter River as it flows and travels through our valley with a forest on the other side , walking on some parts of it can be tricky with both sides with forest near the banks .
It is soo tranquil here I can sit here for hours and listen to the wild life and water as it moves down the river and over fallen trees in the water .
It truly is such a lovely untouched habitat for so many birds and other critters !
Yes even a few selfies with the smart phone lol !
Here are a few of Miggy’s smartphone photos for all of her blogging fans !
Miggs sitting pretty and speaking for a treat !
Doesn’t matter what camera I use Miggs is there to strike a pose lol !
The gardening season is coming to an end and the cooler temps are creeping in here and there, time to start splitting and chopping wood to stack for the indoor wood stove and also use in our chiminea and camp fire pit . MMM I love the smell of wood smoke .
I am pleased to report that this year I have counted more Monarchs then last year either in our yard , passing through and stopping in the field beside us , it was touch and go there for the Monarch a bit for a few years but I think they are making a comeback and the more we leave the wild flowers and milk weed alone and the more we all try to plant butterfly friendly gardens like we did this year and am glad we did I am sure they will be fine .
Any who I just wanted to share as much as I could with you all from my end of the woods I know I do get carried away at times lol .
Take time to enjoy your surrounding’s for you may find something that amazes you !
Until next time .
