The ongoing rain slowed to a drizzle this afternoon, so I took advantage of the lull for a quick walk around the property with Peppermint. I think we were both feeling a bit blue, with the combination of a cool dreary day and a couple of days stuck indoors (me with deadlines and the dog with napping). The fresh air felt good, and although our feet got quite wet, it was nice to roam around and check out the trees, the ever-expanding mushroom patches and observe the squirrels running to and fro gathering their nuts and seeds.
With the mist falling on my camera, I couldn’t stay out long. So after a few quick bracketing shots we headed back inside, where I played with the HDR settings again. I hope to get out this weekend for a much-anticipated fall foliage shoot since I hear the sun will return again. And I could certainly use some intense color at the end of this gray week.
