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. 

Week of Black and Whites, Day 4

The Road
This is a shot I've been wanting to take for awhile now. The sun filtering through the trees makes for dramatic lighting. I think I'll go back and try it again as I think the shot could be better. I like the sun burst, accomplished through using a high/small aperture (high number for a smaller aperture opening) and how the road leads the eye through the picture.

Shot with my G3 and processed through Lightroom and OnOne Perfect Black and White. I can't decide if I like it yet, but I do like the different presets which helped in making this. Definitely wanted a darker more dramatic shot with a little grunge to it, and I think it worked out.
