Through the woods

May 2nd, 2012

Walking to the supermarket, via brief detours to scale mountains quite steep hills and get all manner of splinters embedded in our hands. Converse are definitely not the shoes for impromptu hiking, I’ll tell you that. On the plus side, we did just watch all of the Lord Of The Rings extended edition (11 hours and 23 minutes!!!) back to back, so at least there were many jokes about how journeying to Mordor was a piece of cake compared to this etc etc.

    O geez. That is a gorgeous place. And I’ve gone hiking in keds before. Not on purpose so I feel your pain.

    It does add a certain element of excitement (e.g. potential slide to an early grave) which makes the hike all the more thrilling. x

    I hiked in Scotland wearing Converse, which was tragic on the downhill. Putting a positive spin on things, though, my pathetic appearance kept a good-looking fellow close by should he need to catch my fall.

    Also, I wish someone would illegally introduce that squirrel into Florida.

    Yes, the downhill was mostly of the “sliding down on my bum” variety.
    We’re thinking of bringing the squirrels some nuts next time, to try and lure one in. I want a squirrel pal! x

    Davos… Isn’t that where they hold some World Financial yearly meeting? So beautiful! And that little furry fellow reminds me of Squirrel Nutkin ;)

    I love that you use a Fuji for this! Do you shoot in RAW and edit, or are these straight off the cam!? LOVE the colour usage <3

    Thanks Alice! These are edited from RAW in Lightroom, but sometimes I just do them on my ipad in Snapseed when I’m feeling lazy. I’ve got an eye-fi card so they get sent to the ipad automatically, which is super handy.
