Peebles Island Scenics

I haven't walking all that much lately and my 4.5 mile walk over to, and around, Peebles Island this morning had some leg muscles complaining. I carried my 5D Mark III and 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens. Tomorrow, I may head over with a crop sensor body and a longer lens to scope out the eagle nest with appropriate equipment. There was one adult hanging out nearby this morning.

Here are some shots from this morning, all HDR composites.

Circumstantial Evidence

If the question is "has a person walked in these woods," direct evidence of the fact would be a photo or video of a person walking in those woods. Human footprints would be circumstantial evidence that a person has walked in those woods.

I have no direct evidence that there is a beaver or beavers living along the canal trail North of Waterford. I've never seen the beaver or beavers. Although a Waterford Policeman on a bicycle tried to point the beaver out to me once, I couldn't see it.

I do, however, have circumstantial evidence of beaver presence in the neighborhood. A lot of circumstantial evidence. These are all from this morning as I was walking the canal trail, avoiding the organized hike on Peebles Island. All made with my EOS 5D Mark III and EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens.
