As admitted in my profile, I’m just a dabbler–but I can’t get enough of the views. When I started hiking regularly, about three years ago now, I found the sights all around so beautiful, powerful–soul soothing–I just had to start taking some of them home with me. So I began with my cell phone, taking pictures any time I found an inspiring view, or even just something small along the trail to catch my eye.
Since then, the camera has become a fixture on all my hikes–most of which have been in New Hampshire, USA. I’ve moved on to a “tough” camera, waterproof, shockproof, and so on. I’m still learning what my new camera is capable of, and I’m eager to learn more–as well as more about the craft of nature photography.
The image I’m sharing with this post is my current over-all favorite (of what I’ve taken this year), for the view! Though I have so many favorites for so many reasons…I guess I’m also hoping as I learn more about photography, maybe I’ll understand more about why certain photos appeal to me so.
