Lone Tree | Moody Landscape

Photographed this tree atop a ridge at Garden of the Gods nature park at sunrise, and experimented with some different editing techniques!

There are so many ways to go about altering and editing a photo, so let’s take the time to experiment and try new things to see how they work and what effects we can get!

Mysterious Burned Forest

This moody, misty forest was photographed while exploring one of the hiking trails at Blodgett Peak.

This path eventually leads us along the trees burned years ago by a forest fire.

On this foggy morning, it looked absolutely beautiful but horrible, inspiring yet sobering.

Let’s get out and explore, we never know what we’ll find!

Foggy Mountain Forest

Photographed this misty, moody forest while exploring the Colorado mountains.

Let’s remember to get out during the cloudy, rainy weather.  Not only will there be less hikers to run into (although more photographers), but we’ll get to see some gorgeous views!

Let’s not be afraid to get wet, but remember to keep our cameras dry. There are affordable options on the market, but we can always just throw a bag over our gear to keep the rain out!

Misty Autumn Forest | Resistance

Resistance can have a big impact on our lives.

It keeps us in a rut, automatically following the same well-worn paths we’ve been walking for so long.

When ever we want to change for the better (which is hopefully often!), resistance is there to meet us.

Do we let it stop us?

Hopefully…no.

Realistically…it’s at least going to put up a fight.  And that’s our cue to acknowledge our resistance to change, and push forward anyway.

The first hurdles are always the hardest.  We need to jump over them anyway.  We’ll slip, we’ll fall back into our old routine, but each time we need to get back up and move forward.

Habits take time to dismantle and recreate, but it can be done!

How do you want to change yourself for the better?  What goals are you working on, and what new habits are you trying to instill?  How do you overcome resistance?

Let’s keep our goals and values in mind, and keep moving forward!

Landscape photography in general isn’t my strong suit, though it’s an art that definitely inspires me.

With lots of hiking these past few months, there’s been a lot of time for practice, though often hikes are with a telephoto lens.  More outings need to be had with the wide-angle lens in general, though I’m especially looking forward to further practice on foggy and overcast days.  A tripod and longer exposure may help, though some tutorials will definitely have to be read.  Evidently, a hand-held shot with a telephoto lens wasn’t the best approach.

Practice is essential, and so is failure.  Let’s not be afraid of either.
