Photographing the Forest Floor
We went hiking last weekend on Bald Mountain. While the hubs is busy toting around the Sprout and admiring the trees and the views, I can hardly take my eyes off the forest floor. In part, this is because I'm a total clutz and I HAVE to watch the path or I'll trip and tumble off the mountain. But it also indicates my complete fascination with lichens, mosses and mushrooms. I shot a lot of terrible, blurry pictures but here's a few that aren't too bad. I really want a macro lens for my good camera....someday. In the meantime I need to learn the patience to hold still for the longer exposures necessary for low light situations in the woods. Patience....someday.
