The temperature hovered at a degree or two below freezing, and the sky was spitting snow, but the trails were calling, and I wanted to see what kind of images I could capture on a gloomy, grey afternoon. Here’s what I came up with:

Nothing really great. No hawk. No owl. No sunshine! But my trail walk wasn’t a total washout today. I got some exercise, tested my new camera settings, and came home with a bunch of okay pictures plus one that I had some fun with. Can you guess which one that was? Here it is again:

Playing with a leaf on a snowy picnic table

On my way back to the parking lot, I cut through the picnic shelter and spotted this leaf on the cement floor. Picking it up, I sat down on a bench and played with the camera settings. Call me crazy, but I was satisfied with the results.

    1. Thanks, Camille. It has been pretty cold this week. Friday and Saturday will probably be our coldest so far this year. Still, I feel pretty good about getting out on the trail for short walks at least. I have more to post, but haven’t had time to do it yesterday or today.
