a few nature shots

I did something  the other day I have never done before. 

Mushroom

 

I left the kids at home and went out with a new photography  buddy to take a few nature shots.

 We talked and hiked and hiked and shot.

The hike with a new friend, the time to regroup and just shooting anything that caught my eye –   couldn’t have been more fun.
