I’ll say it again.
Perspective is everything, isn’t it.
Yesterday I saw some things for the first time because they were new and I saw some things for the first time because I was paying attention in a different way.
On my way home from Candle Lake, I drove north through the park on the 263 which I’ve done countless times in the last 2+ years. I realized I hadn’t climbed the Height of Land tower yet this summer so decided to stop by and do it so that I can go back now and again to see how the autumn leaves change.
The first thing I enjoyed was the view of Shady Lake where I’ve been paddling this summer and have posted so many photos about on this blog already. Here it is from the Height of Land tower. And on all of those paddles when not another soul was in sight, I’m glad that I decided never to skinny dip because anyone with a set of binoculars up on the tower would have had a great view. HA! Yikes!
And then I started thinking about how different the whole world looks from up high and looking down.
And then I took a photo while walking down …
And half way down I realized the whole structure was alive with butterflies on the sunny beams and platforms.They were all over the place and my camera ended up on a crazy setting so it’s a bit blown out but I still think it’s a cool photo because of the shadow being cast on the sun-bleached board. Makes me think of when Batman enters a scene and the thing that tips off the Joker is the bat shadow thrown across the room.
And to wrap it all up.
I looked up.
And it was awesome and made me laugh too.
And then I turned to walk back down the path to the parking lot and took this photo
See ya there in a jiffy!
