Day 77- New Walking Trail

New Walking Trail
Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

I went out looking for something to take a picture of today. I really liked the sky here so I took a picture of the new walking trail close to the house. This was taken with my new 50 mm lens.

After coming back from D.C. I'm having a hard time finding something to photograph. I was spoiled with tons of picture worthy subjects.

Settings: f/10, 1/100 sec., ISO-100


  1. This is great Michelle, and it is just the start. I feel that at least 75% of all the photos I take are within 20 Kilometers of my house. We just have to learn to look with different eyes. Next time you go out camera in hand, without a specific goal in mind, pretend you are a 9 year old and photograph what they would photograph, and the next time pretend you are a 14year old boy, then maybe a 90 year old lady. Oh and if a Pheonix Bird should land next to you or a UFO or something, drop the pretence and get to work snapping.

  2. That sky is so dynamic...I can see why it caught your eye! What a beautiful new walking trail you have...I would be spending lots of time there!

  3. Yes, you will be walking here often looking for something new to record. A lovely place. An you have such a wide-open scope for sky photos.

  4. The sky against the bare trees is so pretty and calm looking. Nice day for a walk!

  5. Looks like a lovely trail. Now you can go back in high summer, and in autumn, and catch the same view yet again after the first snows. 3 more photos to snap! :-)

  6. Val, your comment made me laugh. That picture is about as winter as it gets here. lol If it was to snow it would be gone before I got down the street to make the picture. I do like the idea of taking the same picture in different seasons. Hopefully I'll be able to go back in a few weeks to take the spring picture.
