Mosaic Monday: Evening at Natirar




I know I've shown you this before, but my life is so exciting that I just had to show you again. lol

My husband and I like to take long walks on the weekends, and this is one of our favorite places to walk. It's a park called Natirar, which is about ten minutes from our house. The name Natirar is Raritan spelled backwards. Raritan is the name of the river that runs through the park. Originally part of a great estate, Natirar is over 400 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland, with majestic trees and a nature trail that winds through an open valley.

The images shown here were taken on Saturday night. The light was golden as we made our way along the nature trail. By the time we were walking back through the trees, the sun was beginning to set. The shadows were long and the air was cool.

Evening at Natirar.

  25. Morning Mary

    I can almost feel that this is a great place for you and hubby to have such lovely walks together. For him to unwind after a busy working week and to refresh himself for the week ahead.Just to walk along in silence and take in all the beauty, looks a great place in all seasons for colour and wonderful for photographs.
    Have a great week, see you next Monday!
