The Daily Post’s Weekly Challenge – “Fresh”


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Fresh.”

This week I chose Fresh Water in honor of World Water Day. Bill and I went hiking in Minnewaska State Park in the Catskill Mountains, New York State for the first time. I was beautiful with plenty of fresh water throughout the park. I have also added one photo of freshly picked blueberries from Winnie Farm in Schuylerville, NY. This is a yearly event in which I spend half a day picking fresh blueberries while thinking loving thoughts of all those that they will be shared with and of the delicious fruit shakes that I make. It was in the high 30s and there is still snow on the ground even though it is the second day of spring. We snowshoed on the icy trails and it was a beautiful sunny day. Hope you enjoy the photos that I have chosen to share.

  1. Beautiful, Sandy. Those waterfalls! Were they completely frozen? Was that Bill standing there? Good perspective for how big the falls are! I saw several faces in the melting ice. Beautiful tribute to water for World Water Day. I love picking blueberries – but that couldn’t have been this week, right?!

    • The blueberries were from last summer – just added them for the theme fresh. They didn’t really fit in with the water but I was thinking warm weather. That was Bill standing there – he is 6 ft and the falls is 65 ft. It did appear as if there were faces in the melting snow. I hadn’t noticed it until I looked in the camera and it was right there. The waterfall was actually not as frozen as it was a month ago but the sides and below were still frozen. I wasn’t as brave as Bill. There was a very large crack in the ice surrounding the location he was standing. The sunshine on the ice made it shine like diamonds. There was still at least three feet of snow on the trails.


  2. Oh right! Fresh. Duh. I couldn’t quite figure how they fit in. Haha. Man, Sandy! That sounds so beautiful!! I have never seen falls that big in the winter. Brave Bill!


  3. O! These pictures are amazing and you must had a lovely outing. In such beautiful places, it adds to the spirit of our venture and makes us more adventurous in exploring and expanding our imagination…
    Love it…
