Out for a Hike - Bloomfield, Connecticut

Pennwood State Park, Bloomfield Connecticut

Being a landscape and travel photographer, I am often in front of some pretty impressive subjects. I sometimes forget that there is beauty in all corners of the world even if they are not prime destinations. Case in point. I hike around a reservoir that is pretty close to my home. It is a 3-mile hike with a good portion of it being a tree-lined dirt road. I try to bring my camera with me on these hikes, as there are times when the light and shadow paint such a photogenic picture. I shot this photo on one of those hikes and it is a favorite of mine. Don't forget your camera wherever you go. You just might run into a place where the scene is screaming "shoot me."
