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.

I was looking forward to this week's theme, shadows, only because I felt I didn't put much effort into the last couple week's themes. Sadly, again, the weather didn't cooperate with me being overcast for much of the week. Sure, I could have made shadows using lights and such, but didn't really know what I wanted to do for that. So Wednesday, when the heavens opened for a couple hours, I grabbed this shot.
I didn't like this shot at first. I like my photos to be sharp and well defined, but this shot wasn't and couldn't be because of the nature of it being a shot of the shadows, and the rough ground. I kept trying to bring everything into focus, which of course wasn't going to be possible. Once I let that go I was able to enjoy the shot more.
