strolling at dusk

I love going for walks. I wish I had more time to do it. Especially starting to walk 2 hours before sunset. It's so magical the way the sun fiercely hits all of the leaves causing this brilliant green glow throughout the woods. It's just a magical time of day. It's quieter, the sun isn't too fierce (just feirce enough) and it's just so tranquil. I highly recommend it for those who do not know what I'm talking about! It's worth the sight. :) Here are a few pictures that I took during one of my strolls with my love. Some are edited and some are not. Photos are take with a Canon EOS 6D and a 50mm f 1.8 lens.

In Nature ~ Clarity and Inspiration

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” 
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Around this time of year it's normally not this stressful and I'm usually able to cope. For some reason this year has felt very stressful since April. Hence my absence since March, my apologies. It's times like these where I don't only want but I need to pull myself away from everything and just clear my mind. I find the perfect place to do this would be in the forest, surrounded by nature's magical powers to soothe and calm a weary mind like mine.

Uninspired by this heavy winter...

The feeling of not being inspired can really be a burden and quite depressing for the most part. Lately that is how I've been feeling unfortunately. These merciless winter days are determined to make the days full of gloom until spring is finally here so it seems. Luckily, there is only one more day of winter and tomorrow I can wake up and start hoping for spring weather. It's so fascinating how the weather can take such a heavy hit on one's moods and emotions. This winter seems to have had a monstrous effect on a lot of people around me since it has been a very brutal winter. It's hit new records for cold temperatures and we have had so much snow, I can't imagine that not making a new record for my area. I have a lot of hope in my heart and mind that once I start seeing little bud bursting through the defrosting ground and green start to fill the land that my inspiration will come back and I won't feel like I'm battling something that should come more naturally. For now, here are some photos that keep my spirits high that maybe can lift yours if you can relate to how I've been feeling.

All photos are unedited and taken with a Canon Rebel XTi.

Old Film

I finally developed some old film dating back to 2007 to maybe 2011. Obviously, these guesses are completely inaccurate. What matters was my joy with the way the came out. I was slightly nervous that time would have taken a rough toll on my film rolls being that they are quite old and have been sitting around in different temperatures. Fortunately, they were unharmed (except for one roll but it looked interesting instead of ruined). I'd love to share them with your hungry eyes.

 This was an accidental overexposure which made me very excited.

These were all taken on the same day. It was quite a hike but it felt amazing to be surrounded by beauty for a full day. To be able to just bask in nature's aura gives me a sense of sweet serenity. I can't wait to be able to do this again once the snow is all gone.

I hope you enjoyed the results of my adventure. 
Photos taken with a Minolta X-370. I used many lenses.
