We thought you might find it interesting to see what we encounter during our photographic day in Bulow Woods.
The following images were taken with a (dare I say it), digital Panasonic point and shoot. We use the digital or our I-phones to record points of interest that we might want to come back and put on film. We use the digital images in tandem with a GPS so that we can record where those points of interest are in the woods. Once we’re off the hiking trail it’s easy to forget exactly where those points are located. You can literally be in the right area but miss it by several feet, especially if it’s in a very thick part of the woods.
The following are not, what we consider, of any photographic merit. Just something to give you a glimpse into our day.
Taken through the windshield as we were driving down the road.
As you can see there actually is a real hiking trail, we just don’t stick to it.
Marks with coffee cup in hand just before getting the backpack on.
Myself. Still relatively bright eyed and bushy tailed.
You have to keep a lookout for these spider webs. They’re huge and everywhere. It’s horrible to walk face first into one.
Asiatic Hawksbeard – a flowering weed which grows abundantly deep in the woods and is currently flowering profusely.
I can see a horse, a dragon and several other mythical creatures in this stump. Isn’t mother nature just wonderful?
Two different types of Turkey Tail Fungus found just about everywhere on downed trees and limbs. I just love this stuff.
Covered in moss and leaning, but still growing strong.
After three hours both of us are ready to head back home.
Ready to get these snake boots off my feet.
We hope that you enjoyed this small glimpse into our day.
Thanks for viewing.
