“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
~ John Muir
two glorious days of hiking with friends
on various trails
in the sunshine and fresh spring air
Soooooooo beautiful..! I envy envy you 🙂
Looks like you had a super weekend, some great pictures too. I love the first one, the path really leads your eye into the photo and the close up ones are amazing, what lens do you use? 🙂
Thanks Katie. Most of these were taken with a 55-300mm telephoto, with the exception of the pussy willow and the gazebo photo..for those two I was playing with a little 50mm lens.
All wonderful images as usual, but 0672 was amazing. I’ve often tried for a shot like that, but mine seem to come out pretty crappy. 😉
Love the john muir quote. Love the photos xo LMA
What a great way to spend what was a gorgeous weekend!
Wow, all of these are quite beautiful! Wow! That’s central Mass???!!!! I especially like the scruffy tree in the golden landscape, and the ground-level weeds or whatever they are.
And as the icing on the cake, you came away with a beautiful set of pictures! Sounds like a great weekend to me.
What a wonderful hike in beautiful landscape! Walking is one of life’s most rewarding yet simplest of pleasures.
I just want to touch that pussywillow!! Lovely photos…
After driving north from subtropical to very early spring this weekend, it was a joy to see your photos of early spring. You captured the beauty so very well.
Love that fourth shot of the tree trunks!
Looks like you had a great time outdoors with friends. Beautiful pics. I especially love the shot with the bright blue stream and the bird. (of course) Also the John Muir quote, I drive by Muir High School in Pasadena all the time! 🙂 So glad you had some beautiful weather so you could enjoy the outdoors.
Susan were any of these images taken using your lens baby? They are fantastic?
No, I used my 50mm lens for these shots. But thanks for reminding me, I need to start playing more with that lensbaby!
Fantastic series, Susan!!! Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂
Such joyful photos…I love the fourth (branches), and the moss, the downy woodpecker, and the pussy willow. Great variety!
