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.

This was from my second outing with the infrared filter, and I was really pleased with this shot. The only thing I did with this shot was play around with the white balance and the toning. I've still not come up with a good way to take out the red without going to a full black and white shot, and since I said I wouldn't do a black and white shot this week that wasn't an option. Due to the nature of the lighting I have some pretty bad blown out areas due to the 1 minute exposure setting. Also due to the 60 second exposure the background isn't very sharp, and this was a relatively windless day.
