    C'mon - take a walk with me

    Had some very rare pain free energy yesterday and had to do something productive. My main walking trail is an old tram road that runs parallel to the creek from the old logging days. I keep the trail mowed but the jagger bushes and others were encroaching the trail since I haven't been able to trim it back the last few years. Well about an hour with the lopping shears took care of the worst of it. Grabbed my camera and super wide angle lens last evening and took a walk. Pics aren't the best since it was so heavily overcast and humid. Bentley actually came along this time - you'll see a lot of Mastiff butt in the pics.

    From the start off the main lawn area:













    Tractor path at the far end that goes to the upper part of the property:

    Trail leading off the Tram road to the creek about 1/2 upstream - my favorite spot along the creek:













    And heading back home:

    Great pics! As a photo dude myself I can say you actually had PERFECT photo conditions. Had it been sunny those photos wouldn't be nearly as beautiful as you would be dealing with over exposed areas and deep shadows. As it was, you had nice even lighting over the whole scene!

    I agree. I've always prefered an overcast sky - it's like a huge light box or diffuser. Because of the high mountains all around us we don't see the actual sun for 1.5 hours after sunrise and the same before sunset so I don't get any of that "golden hour" light. I think low setting sunlight about a half hour before sunset would have impoved the shots but that never happens around here.

    I've also found the overcast skies work very well for my macro shots.

    I was actually surprised the camera didn't pick up any haze or humidity in the air with those shots. This gave me some reinforcement about my good cameras and glass although those pics were actually taken with my "worst" lens as far as optics.
