One of the best gifts this momma could ever have is to be with
her hubby and kiddo's with my camera in hand!
I took this opportunity to work on a photography exercise.
Shooting in a "Setting with Purpose."
I have a tendency to focus in on details. It was allot of fun to intentionally work on stepping back and taking in the bigger picture.
I love the perspective of how small our children look against the
big vast landscape.
It's precious to see how small Luke still looks ( even as a big boy 5 year old) standing next to his big strong daddy.
In observing and trying to capture the surroundings we where in (and not just the people), it really helped broaden the overall enjoyment of our walk.
As I view the images after the fact we are able to continue to enjoy the scenery and still be beckoned by the trails.
