Nature Walk Photos, December 13th, 2018
Merry Christmas and happy birthday to me. I invested in a new camera yesterday, an E-M1 Mark II Olympus. It’s my first time shooting without a mirror, and I have to say, so far I’m pretty impressed, although I really would have liked better light to practice with this morning.
I went out to the Baker Wetlands today because I thought for sure I’d find some good wildlife to chase, and there was a decent amount of activity out there, not that I could see any of it. It was basically working in pre-dawn conditions due to the cloud cover. Still, I managed to snap a couple of shots that I liked, and I’m really in love with this new camera.
A big reason I’ve decided to take pictures again is for my health. I hiked about a mile and a half this morning in pursuit, and it didn’t feel like exercise. I was engaged and in the moment the entire time, only stopping to check my phone for the time once and a while (because no matter what, I have to get into the office and build websites for part of the day).
We’re in the depths of winter here now, as you can see. I’m looking forward to spring already.
