Our photo excursion this past week was to the Dahlem Center nature trail. We picked it because it was beastly hot even at 6:30 in the morning and it is close to where I live. The nature trail is open from dawn to dusk so we didn’t have to wait until later in the heat for admission. The photos belie the fact that it was sweltering hot and the bugs were driving us crazy. I’m enjoying the walk through my photos much more than I enjoyed it live.
I have been working to improve my use of light to increase the emotional impact of my photos. The early morning sun through the trees was fun to use and distracted both Julie and I from the bugs and heat.
