Hiking in our Backyard

One of the nice things about being home in Portland is how close we are to miles and miles of hiking trails. And by close, I mean roughly 200 yards from the nearest trail. 


Fall is a great time on the trails because, well, trees! Look at the richness of color in this one shot:


When the petals from the flowers on a Magnolia tree drop, the center of the bloom transforms into a giant fuzzy seed pod.

The Magnolia leaves are huge. Here's a shot with my muddy trail shoe in it for scale: 


I've got a few photo shoots at my studio in town over the next week or two and then we'll be heading up to the boat for a bit. Yay winter cruising!!
