Sunday was such a beautiful day I had to spend it outside. I went on a two hour hike at a park near my house. Even though it was sunny the trails were still pretty muddy and my shoes got a little trashed, but I was happy I remembered to bring my camera with me. I spent some time playing around with different exposures, I'm usually an "auto" girl but I'm trying to break that habit. I love the texture of tree bark and enjoy taking close up photos of my favorites. Here's a little collage from some that I took on Sunday.
