Nifty Fifty: Foliage

It has been way too long since I made an entry for my "NiftyFifty" project. It's also been too long since I updated my blog with any landscape/outdoor photos which I enjoy making the most.

I spent the last two weeks anxious to get out on a nice day for pictures. This morning finally provided an opportunity to get out that I was able to take. These photos are the first of a set I took at Gee Brook State Forest. Keep an eye out for more entries to come over the next few days.

It's fun to get down close to the ground, even while standing in a stream to do it! I came home with soaked shoes and partly soaked pants this morning. It was well worth the trouble. I read early on about photography that you should never be afraid to come home dirty to get the shot you want. I think I get dirtier taking pictures than I do working in the yard! I love it!

If you think this gets you out of coming downstairs to look at my pictures, you're nuts! You ain't gettin' out of it! :)
