Take a Hike!

Double digit temps, sunshine, and a borrowed macro lens were enough to tempt me out further than my backyard.  Technically, I was in a bigger version of my backyard, but I had to hike in so it counts.  I poke around outside quite a bit, even in winter, but it was nice to spend a dedicated chunk of time out and about enjoying the gorgeous late afternoon shadows, clouds, and critter trails.  Critter trails are one of my favorite parts of snow, they make me so much more aware of the wildlife that usually is long gone from my stomping about.

Here are a few shots from my hike:

  1. these are great! There’s something journalistic about these photographs, I could very well see these in a hiking magazine of some sort. I like how to paid attention to the small delicate pieces of nature as well as the big picture, very lovely!

  2. Your macro shots look great! I especially like the interesting shadows you captured. I think it adds a new level beyond just typical landscape shots.
