Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by @TattoodJay, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.
Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.
Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.
Try and get a few shots not just one.
You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.
Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance
Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss
Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.
This past week I took a walk in the mountains found in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The day went from nice and sunny to snow. So you will get a nice range of photos in this one, and see how fast the weather can change in the mountains.
For some reason my photos came out super small and I have no idea how that happened. Very strange since my settings are not set for a small photo. Beginner photographer problems.
If you know my photography then you know I love big shots and here we are looking at tiny shots, but my walk consisted of walking through a trail on private lands, walking up a trail from 8,000 feet up to 10,000 feet in altitude.
Juniper berries were still thriving even after the first snow and smelled heavenly.
This sweet Aspen tree looked gorgeous standing next to the side of this mountain.
Being up on high is not such a bad thing, the walk was more like a hike and I was stopping to take photos the entire time. Overall the walk was only about 1.5 hours total.
The snow started to fall so I caught as many shots as I could, the pretty yellow leaves that had just started changing colors got snowed on. Fortunately, I caught a nice shot with the snow coming down too.
The trees caught my attention since they seem to love the first fall of snow and looks so lovely, in Colorado the snow melts quickly so by the next day the snow was melted. Thankfully.
This was a photo of a gong that sounds out the arrival of a Teacher in the community, in the snow the vibrant colors express a feeling of a time of expectation now at rest.
Hopefully, you liked my Wednesday Walk feature of the mountains in Colorado and the first snowfall. As always, I love community engagement so leave a comment below and I will be sure to respond.
