Wood Turtle Perserverance
Photo By Kim Lenker

  • Title: Wood Turtle Perserverance
  • State/Province/Region: Pennsylvania
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Bald Eagle State Forest
  • Nearest Town: Weikert, PA
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: One of my favorite places is the fish for fun stretch of Penns Creek. I take my fly rod to hopefully catch a few brown trout but find myself spending most of my time exploring the water's edge to see what inteesting sights I can find to photograph. I was trying to capture a shot of the creek for the early spring assignment when I noticed this wood turtle moving just a few feet from my tripod. I spent the next 20 minutes photographing the turtle as he slowly made his way to the edge of the creek and slipped into the water. I liked this shot as he made his way down over a rock. The turtles back was nicely exposed showing the intricate pattern of the shell.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
