A few weeks back, Anha and I took a trip out near my hood to O'Neil Park to try to find some waterfalls. Well, it turns out you need rain for water, so that didn't work out, but we decided to take a hike and see if we found anything interesting. We decided on the most gruelingly-named hike on the map - "Edna."
Here are the results:
There were a few of these weird seed pods...I'm gonna call them...
on the ground looked like dried up sponges.
Ah, Anha Nguyen, my partner in crime on
most of my photographic exploits - this is her
sporting her "hiking boots"
Thought this was a interesting contrast in texture and color
Over what seemed to be an endless hill was Rancho Santa Margarita
The only thing significant about this picture is that it was about this
moment that I realized it would be a good idea to start checking for ticks.
I think at first glance, I had 7 on my pants.
Shockingly, no lighting effects were added to this photo, that's actually the
sun behind it.
I was shocked that I got a pretty decent and sharp image of the moon in the
sky. I upped all the blacks in the image above so you could see it better,
but it was still faintly daylight at the time I shot this.
So at this point I started playing around with the HD video in the 7D -
you'd be surprised how creepy it looks to watch a caterpillar munch
on a flower in slow motion. Those things are pretty ugly.
