A steamy morning finds a couple of geese cranking down the Neuse River towards some unknown destination. It is not often that you get a top-down look at geese, but some of the banks along the Neuse River Greenway Trail let you look down on the river from a pretty high vantage point.
The rising sun reflects behind a goose down on the Neuse River near Raleigh. This guy (gal) was part of a pair who were standing on this log and honking incessantly to each other. Geese are a pretty regular sight when you are kayaking or canoeing down the Neuse River.
Most people don’t realize how close they are to nature. I came across this sandbar along the Neuse River that was covered with deer prints. The sandbar was literally a stone’s throw from the Neuse River Greenway Trail. People often ask how we get the pictures we do. Be quiet and go slow. Like, ridiculously slow.
Remember when you were a kid daydreaming and doodling pictures of the beach? Remember how the birds all ended up as these “V” shapes? I guess that’s more accurate than it may have seemed. On Falls Lake, near Raleigh.
