The Marshes of Oxley Nature Center

Oxley Marsh Trees and Reflections - Topaz Glow - Fur and Feathers

Topaz Glow – Fin and Feathers

Oxley Nature Center is built on some land nobody else wanted. Just north of the airport, wrapped by Bird Creek, and right next to the police department shooting range, nobody likes it except hikers, families, trail runners, geocachers, and photographer, not to mention deer, squirrels, snakes, lizards, ticks, fish, and lots of birds. ┬áThe marshes of Oxley is what gives wildlife its space against us humans. I’ve been out here and have seen deer run across the marshes and swim the sloughs and leave guys like me trying to get good pictures behind.

The marshes give Oxley a lot of its mystery. I used Topaz Glow to emphasize that mystery. I like how it brought out the reflections of the trees and the texture of their bark.

    Ah, it looks like a beautiful place to me and just the kind that I like to find and hike through!! You do have some great places and I’m glad you not only found them, but have shared them with us!! Hope your week is off to a great start — mine is, as I’ve had telephone visits with all my kids and that’s always fun!!!
    Enjoy the remainder of your week!! Thank you for continuing to host Sky Watch!!

    Thank goodness there’s land that has been preserved for nature because nobody else wanted it when the area was being first settled! A great place for wildlife!
