Nature Photo Challenge: Fun with “The Fly”

The Mighty Mississippi, March 2012, New Orleans

“The Muddy Mississippi,”¬†March 2012, New Orleans

Did you expect an up close and personal photo of an insect? Sorry to disappoint. ūüėÄ

I captured¬†today’s nature¬†photo at “The Fly” on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon just before the “official” beginning¬†of spring–almost four years ago.

“The Fly,” formally known as “The Riverview,” is the waterfront part of Audubon Park in New Orleans, located behind the Audubon Zoo. ¬†It’s a great place for small gatherings, hanging out,¬†and casual walks.

I played with the photo a bit in PhotoShop and in various iPhone apps.

Here are some of my monochrome favorites:

I love water and trees, so this nature scene was a given.
