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. 

Pier Sunset

A keeper, at sunset
This was taken on the first attempt for my post from Monday. I had been under the pier for a good half hour, and was getting a little frustrated with my flimsy tripod and keeping a wary eye on the approaching tide when I came out and saw this. So although 90% of my shots from that day were throw aways, I was able to grab some nice shots out from under the pier.

This shot was a hand-held five exposure HDR. Since I had taken off the neutral density filter and upped the aperture (or lowered it, depending on how you look at it), I felt confident I could keep the camera steady better than this tripod I was using. If you haven't figured it out by now I was really frustrated with this tripod. I then processed as I normally do. I hope you enjoy it, it was a relief to come away with something to keep, even if it wasn't the shot I was looking for initially.
