DUNDALK, MD -
Stansbury Park in Dundalk used to be a quarry. Now, the area has been converted into a playground, pond, and walking path for area residents.
I have photographed Stansbury on a number of occasions, but January 18, 2017, was my first time visiting with snow on the ground.
There wasn't much snow on the ground - maybe an inch or two, tops - but thanks to weeks of sub-freezing temperatures, the pond itself was covered in a thick later of ice, which added nicely to the winter-like conditions.
Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I thought it would be a good idea to bring my adorably cute, but overly rambunctious pup along with me to take some photos of the quarry while we took a walk around the path.
It was great exercise despite temperatures in the teens, and Pepper did her very best to be a good girl, but the dual task of walking a dog on a leash and setting up a tripod for landscape photographs proved difficult and I was only able to capture a handful of shots.
Still, it was a great morning to be outside, especially since the weather has been less than ideal for going on two months now. So despite my limited photographic output, I would consider my excursion a success.
