Over the last few months, I have found a new appreciation for my surroundings. As I look through the lens the distant becomes close, the far becomes near, and the small becomes large.
I ventured into the Topsfield Rails to Trails project. The project is amazing. The old rail bed is converted to a recreation path which I walked down Nd ended up in the Wenham swamp and Canal. I used my camera to capture the walk, and learned to hone my skills with an SLR.
It was only the first step.
This weekend I went to Bradley Palmer where I walked through the trails. The focus of the walk was the natural beauty and wildlife. Two hours later and a hundred plus photos, I had 10 photos I was proud of.
A perfect two hours hiking, and revisiting nature and capturing the beauty…..
Now I cannot wait for 2011, and the adventures we’ll find.
On the docket, Montana, Utah, Colorado, and I80, we’ll figure out the rest as we drive.
