Having photo fun with branches

It’s a beautiful Spring day here in Northeast Wyoming. My mom and I went for a walk up the mountain a bit, we live just about a mile away from the entrance to the Black Hills National Forest. I will take this walk again with my camera, there are so many interesting features I wish to capture. I only had my phone, and this branch really caught my eye because I knew I could play with the photo once it was on my computer. This is what I ended up with….

Photo101 – Landscape

Today’s subject of landscape is right up my alley! Living with a 700 acre ranch surrounding me, I’m really lucky that I┬áhave these beautiful vistas to enjoy every day.

When I head down the mountain for a run, I love seeing how this particular area looks different in the seasons as well.


Just for fun – here’s the Bald Eagle:
