While still working on a blog about last Marvellous Monday, I took a bunch more photos this Monday (and most days in between, truth be told). Today's hike took us to Hemer Park, just south of Nanaimo. Trumpeter swans, sunshine through trees, fresh cool air, happy dogs......and a cormorant on a log in the lake. My little point and shoot is wearing out and sometimes changes settings without warning, paints whole photos in monochrome reds or blues, puts squiggly lines across the picture, or simply won't focus. Usually it is aggravating, but for this photo I liked the lack of focus and the slight blur across the whole scene - it looks more like a watercolour painting of the cormorant watching the duck.
