Autumn in River Park North
River Park North is a part of the Greenville, NC city park system which, as the name implies, is located north of town alongside the Tar River. It has ponds, marshes, woodland trails, and tupelo-cypress swamps and it is seldom without anglers along the pond banks or people simply enjoying the out-of-doors. The entire park was recently flooded by the Tar's water after the recent hurricane dropped near-record rainfall in the area. But based on anglers' successes and the numbers of cormorants, the ponds now appear to be recovering from the flooding. Overall, the park offers more in the way of Nature studies and recreation than it does scenery; however, the few dead and fall-colored cypress trees as well as even fewer maples offer some interesting photographic opportunities, especially during a late afternoon visit. I ventured forth into the park today with camera equipment and a chattering, adventuresome grandson to see what opportunities awaited. I was not disappointed. More of these scenes are under Projects > River Park North in the home page menu.
Always appreciate your eye for beauty. These are reminiscint of many NC Thanksgivings, also by the Tar River where my father spent a good portion of his life pursuing the Shad species.
