Could this father daughter moment be any cuter? I love the softness of the black and white and the moment captured is priceless! Thank you for sharing!

The contrast of the white with the dark patches on the birch tree is beautiful. I love the subtlety of this photo. Thank you for sharing Evelyn!

This weekend I went for a hike with my family to Wallace Falls. I am so enjoying discovering new places in the natural world that are full of stunning beauty. Walking through the woods listening to the sounds of the birds and the water allows me to feel more connected to myself and to the world around me. Despite the sore legs after the 4+ mile hike that felt like it was mostly uphill, I feel blessed to have experienced this place with my family. Pictures of the waterfalls will be up on Thursday. I used this HDR tutorial to edit this photo and bring back the details in the twisting mossy branches. 

Settings: ISO 500, 50mm, ss1/125, f/5.0
"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive." - Eleanora Duse
