This is the tenth installment in a year-long series of monthly scenes from Claude Moore Park in Sterling, VA. To read from the beginning, please visit my posts from the past months; March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, and November.
I sometimes have an idea of what I want to photograph in a particular month. For example, in December I thought I’d get some pictures of the inside of Lanesville House decorated for the holidays, and of the park’s first snow.
Well, the snow hasn’t happened yet. In fact, we were all wearing short sleeves on Christmas.
Holiday in the Park did happen, but I learned the important life lesson that One Can Not Spend One’s Time Taking Pictures of Decorations Whilst Also Leading One’s Girl Scout Troop at an Event.
I did go back later and take some pictures of the outdoor decorations.
At least the weather was nice for taking walks this month. I saw berries of red,
Did you know pink berries existed in nature? I didn’t.
I hiked on beautiful misty mornings before dashing off to do Christmas shopping,
and at sunset, while heading home from dance class.
Like many things in life, this month did not turn out the way I’d planned, but this time I can’t complain a bit.
