Nature Walk With My Camera

I had a day off today and finally took the time to do what I've been meaning to for a while: take out my camera and snap some nature photography.

I walked through the recreational path by my house and managed to capture some beautiful photos. Today was more of a practice run considering I'm pretty rusty when it comes to F-Stops & Apertures..but I managed to get a hang of it fairly quickly.

Photography is something I've always had an interest in and just now am I finally putting it to practice. Today was extremely therapeutic for me. Walking down a trail, taking the time to focus on the things that are normally passed by in everyday life is a great reminder at how beautiful the world really is.

So I'm making it a goal: I'm going to start carrying my actual camera around with me & take a minute and really look at my surroundings. Anything & Everything that is natural here on earth is beautiful and I want to be reminded of that every single day through photography.

Feel free to join along with me & share the photos you've taken of things you'd normally pass by without notice.

this is so lovely. it's amazing what you notice when you make a point of bringing a camera along. : )

That's awesome how your camera is making you look at other things you might not notice before. Good idea!! And that first picture... the color contrast is incredible!

Lovely shots. I try to take my camera with me everywhere, although sometimes it can be a bit inconvenient. But when I land some nice pictures that I wouldn't have otherwise captured with say, a phone camera, I feel really satisfied and rewarded. It really forces you to take it all in.

this is a great idea. about 4 weeks ago, i made it my goal to take at least one photo every day for the next three months, and to do that, i literally bring a camera with me EVERYWHERE. it works, too! so far so good. it just has to become habit, and then it'll become second nature, practically. just snap photos of everything! good luck :)

nice photos, by the way!
