Sometimes The Light Falls Just Right
Today, my son and I took a hike on a trail that I have been up and down many times; with and without my camera. Today, I brought it along and I was looking at the trail with new eyes. There were times today that I would actually lay face down on the dirt trail to do nothing more than look to see what I could see. I found one particular spot; a growth of Mountain Maple which just had to be shot.
The best thing about these shots, at least for me, is that these two shots were taken in broad daylight. This spot was mostly covered by shade. One sliver of light came through the tall trees and landed on this growth of Mountain Maple. It is so awesome to see something and then be able to really duplicate it through the camera.
To paraphrase Aloha Lavina, today was kind of like golf; these were the two shots that I made in 18 holes that are going to keep me coming back for more.
