I drove way the fuck out into the woods today for a thing for one of the girls. It was a gorgeous drive – and of course, I took the camera. I found a couple of things I wanted to shoot along the way……these are the two shots that had me going “OMG – this is going to be awesome”…….
……only be disappointed with the results.
This shot does not capture the view – miles upon miles gorgeous view.
The foreground of this shot are these gorgeous yellow flowers. Why can’t you tell? Sun was in a crappy place – and what I saw as a great show only worked from a particular elevation. I was down too low. Cropping only got me so far. And tweaking the yellow – well, made it better (kind of) but I couldn’t fix the trees because, well – the light again. Overall, I was disappointed with my ability to capture what I was seeing.
I took more photos of the stuff at camp. The program Indigo does is all about cooking in the wild – harvesting from the land including the animals and cooking over an open fire or wood burning stoves/ovens. Today, they invited the parents out for brunch. Each kid made a dish to serve their parents.
They did a great job.
Then after, we got a mini-tour of the place and found an egg sack laid by the newts. That was pretty cool.
