a few nature shots

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



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

the cut wood

 We talked and hiked and hiked and shot. 

another mushroom

Even though I’m not real thrilled with what came out of my camera 


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