Rural fall hiking
The other day I was out exploring and I found a new park, it's very close to other parks I regular, easy to find, great trails and natural features, I want to tell you about this park, but I won't.
I know, I know, that's rude, but hear me out.
With the arrival of fall comes a wide variety of ever changing weather. While hiking on warm sunny days is lovely there's something to be said about cool dark drizzel-y days; the colors seem to be so much more saturated, the tree trunks darker, and the smell of damp leaves surrounds you. I especially like these sorts of days to photograph running water - no blown out highlights and I can get my shutter speed slow enough to exaggerate the flow! This photo was taken yesterday at Wooster Memorial Park just before the rain started.
Although it's been a rainy week, take some time to explore the outdoors in the rain, with proper boots and a jacket you'll find rain hiking is just as nice as hiking on clear sunny days!
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
