Change of pace

My photo hikes have become the highlight of my week. I get out of the house for a few hours to go where I want, and do what I want. The quiet and solitude is a welcome change of pace from what can be a humdrum routine of chores, and constant demands on my time and attention.

I enjoy the simple pleasures of being outside and looking at the world through my camera lens.

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)

    I love the first shot. I totally agree about how enjoyable it is to get outside and take photos. I never bothered until I started blogging and now I’ve started to view the world through new eyes.

    The dandelion is an amazing close-up. It made me look at the list of lenses you used for the photos. Do you carry all that with you when you take your photo hikes?


  5. Diane Turner says:

    The first one is wonderful. So is the dandelion. Great perspective.

    I enjoy your moments behind the camera lens too. I’ve been doing a bit more of that myself:-)


  7. The angles and perspective on these are just amazing! I love them!
    You’re making me want to bring my big camera with me everywhere :D

    I’m guessing that first one was taken looking up through a fire tower. I have always LOVED shots like that – – – ever since I snapped my first one with my little Brownie black and white back in the late 60’s days.

    We all benefit from your photo hikes, Tara. Thanks for sharing these wonderful images. I’m especially fascinated by the first one.



  10. I can so relate to how photo walks become such a necessary part of ones life. Love these shots.

    I enjoy the angles and vanishing point of the tower. Good camera walks.

    Third image from the top is my favourite. I love the light on the water and the canopy of trees.



  15. My favorite is the one at the exact bottom of the tower. I’ve always loved looking-straight-up shots.

    And, I, living vicariously through you, can sit at my computer and marvel at what you see. I’m with Sue on the dandelion being amazing.


  17. Loved your shots, Well taken! =)
