Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Hiking Surprise (Photocentric)

I hope those of you who had a 3 day weekend enjoyed it. I took the time to get out and hike some. The first trail we hit didn't look very promising, until we rounded a bend and this came into view. I should have gone back to the car to grab the seldom used tripod that I had in there, but didn't want to hold up the rest of the group so did my best hand-held shot.

So that's the first "problem" with this shot. The second problem I had was that it was washed out and pretty dull looking color wise. Like a previous shot I took, I decided to try and HDR it to add a little punch to it. It turned out pretty good, I think. I really enjoy shooting panoramic shots, but find them a little disappointing when viewing them because they're restricted by my puny 22 inch monitor.

When I first saw the house my thought was they were in a great place; sandwiched between rolling hills with the coast not far. Then I thought of the recent tsunami scare, and thought differently.
