I decided to hit up the trail after work. I didn’t make it TO the falls, because – well I am slow and I take pictures! I will have to hit it up at noon on a nice cloudy afternoon this summer.
After about a mile, I knew I was not going to get to the 2.5 miles in mark to the actual water falls, but I also knew I heard running water! Off the trail and into the woods we go!
Yes the keys are back! I have another “series” I’m working on, but I do think that will be an instagram only gig!
Very worth the dashing down and following the water! Also, it was 74 in the woods and a nice, cool, 68 down here. Also, prettier!
I had to scamper around a lot, got dirty, and sweaty and had a blast. Part of the down side of being away from home is, well, being away from home. The upside, is the experience and the adventures I can have.
Of course, a conversation with Wendy (and a pt) led me to Swift River! Cute covered bridge with some fun water. I’m hoping I’m here when it thaws, the water must be amazing!
Photographing running water like this is far, far better on a cloudy day as you are allowing your lens to stay “open” longer to capture the motion, making that blur. Sunny days means a wash out or you can use an ND filter. Which I have, but am still learning to master.
The hiking season is slowly coming to a close – but I’m hoping to get some good “cold/winter” ones in before there is to much snow on the ground to do it!
I drove home from Maine and here are a few pics. Then the day after I went over to Rocks Christmas Tree Farm, which was wickedly fun!
Rocks is this amazing place, the views are wonderful and the trails to hike are great too. The colors and the sun were popping that day too!
Of course, my keys made an appearance. I’ve also been taking some fun pics with my recruiters business cards too! I’ll be making a post about that all on its own though!
Mount Washington already has something in the area of 18 inches of snow – it does make for something pretty to look at!
My coworker, Wendy – an Littleton Native, keeps making the perfect suggestions for my weekend adventures!
This week it was Castle in the Clouds!
Here are my keys! The light was odd in the gorge where the Fall of Song is. However it was gorgeous and a quick hike to be honest.
A short hike, and some mushrooms later, I found the Bridal Veil. Which was fun to photograph as well.
Did I mention Mushrooms?
After an awesome lunch (soup and a salad) In the sun on the patio, off to the house I went. Of course, I took pictures of the view – hello!
Pictures do NOT do this place justice. Oh, my goodness, massive and stuck “in time” so to speak.
I could have spent hours and hours taking photos of this place, I am glad I got there earlier in the day – the light was great, lovely shadows against the walls as well.
And this was the sunset when I got home. Pretty wicked way to end the day.
