It’s been a terribly gloomy weekend, but that won’t stop me from being that crazy lady in the woods taking pictures of herself. For both these pictures and the ones I’ll be posting later in the week, it was drizzling now and then, with big storms bookending the drives out to each spot. Thankfully, no downpours during the shoot like that time I was stuck on a covered bridge for an hour!
Besides, shooting in less-than-ideal conditions has been a fun challenge for me. I can be a little prissy about taking pictures, in that I always try to shoot during the twilight hours when the lighting is just A+ perfect. But this weekend, with the rain coming down, down, down the whole time, I had to get out of my comfort zone. I actually really like the way these turned out–there’s something about the gray skies that just seems to be perfect for October.
On top of that, there’s really nothing nicer than coming in from the rain and settling down with a hot cup of tea and a cozy blanket and a fuzzy dog, is there? The only thing I can think of to make that scene any better is a warm pumpkin cinnamon roll, and that’s exactly what I’ve been snacking on lately.
All in all, I’ve been feeling pretty good about things, better than I was last week. Seems all I needed was some pumpkin spice and a new challenge!
