Drink the Wild Air

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air…” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Last Saturday, we spent the day hiking around upper Vermont.  Sometimes, you just need to spend some time in nature to recharge the internal batteries, to let go of the stress of our everyday lives and to appreciate something bigger than our daily routines and worries.

If you haven’t made time for Mama Nature lately…well…what are you waiting for?  Get outside!  Trees need love too.

This is a photo from Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont.

13 mm, f/5, 1/50th sec, ISO 100 – edited with a combination of light painting and HDR.

      It’s funny, because depending on the edit, it looked inviting or creepy. haha I chose to shoot for inviting! 🙂

    Lovely shot 🙂

    Footpath disappearing into the trees, begging you to explore further….what awaits? That’s the best part 🙂

      Brings out a sense of adventure, doesn’t it? 🙂 I actually made the whole group of hikers wait while I explored the birches and path….it was too beautiful not to!

      Thanks so much for the kind words! It was one of those places where you couldn’t help but photo. I was hiking with 3 people and made them wait while I hunted out compositions. 🙂
