What was I doing on the coldest day so far this year? Why hiking of course!
I took a little trip to Hilton Falls a couple of weeks ago. And though the lighting situation was not in my favour (as most usual) I still made the best of it and now know what time of the day I should go to actually capture everything the way I want with the help of nice lighting.
Besides that, though, it was a frigid and nice hike accompanied by making friends with the birds and getting to merge myself in nature, despite my numb feet.
This was about the only direct sunlight I was able to capture. At least the sun was still at a good spot for a little while before setting to the point where it was no longer really hitting any subject matter I wanted it to.
Because the falls were further down than the hiking trail, the sun was even less prominent on the falls and the surrounding area.
There was a bird feeder halfway down the trail that attracted lots of little birds that definitely weren't shy.
