The Challenge of the Month for June involves photographing tree(s) and bicycle. Once again, I’m scouting around for interesting trees for practice before I tackle some impressive timber I have in mind. This kind of challenge is actually quite inspirational. I find myself riding familiar routes, but looking at the scenery with fresh eyes.
Today I pedaled a short distance to Spring Lake. The distance was short—only nine miles round trip—but it took me two hours because I stopped so often to photograph, or consider photographing, trees that caught my eye. I ended up with some photos from Spring Lake, some from the route to and from the lake, some from my local neighborhood, and some from my own yard.
