Recently I traveled to Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, Maryland, to have a photoshoot with two beautiful dogs, Ella, a four month old standard poodle pup, and Gracie, a German Shorthaired Pointer. I had not been to this park before and it is quite lovely. It has forested areas and lawn areas, a pond, a formal garden, sculptures, flowers, you name it. There is even a long path through the forest to the bay front and a beach. Oh, and I forgot, they have an outdoor ice rink in winter that is a reflecting pool in warmer temperatures! This park really has it all! The cost to enter is $6, but if you live near enough to go often you can get an annual pass for around $30.
I loved this spot for photography at this time of year especially because the cherry trees, tulip magnolias trees, and the forsythia were all in full bloom. The colors were gorgeous! They also had daffodils planted in many areas and they too were in bloom. Even though the sky was completely overcast and we were enduring drizzle and some sprinkles, the overall beauty of this place, as well as of the two dogs I was photographing, meant I had a very enjoyable Friday evening doing what I love. I will be returning to this park to discover the beauty of other seasons there.
