What you might not see if you walk too fast!

Well…sometimes I DO walk fast but not usually when I have a camera in my hand. I try to walk for 30 minutes for exercise and then stop back by the car and get my camera. But sometimes….hahaha…I just can’t help myself.

So now we’re walking at the park….

on this trail.

You can tell the leaves are green and thick all along the way. I am walking this trail with the creek on the right hand side, when I glimpse a mountain through an opening in the leaves, I stop for a quick photo.

One quick photo…I love seeing the mountain framed by the blackberry vines and honeysuckle.

But when I get home and zoom in, I see this!

(the two photos above are the same photo, one is cropped)

So a couple of days later when I am walking again, I zoom with my camera and take a closer photo.

I’m taking part in Donna’s photo challenge.

I use a small Canon S 100. It’s a great little camera to carry everywhere you go!

When you view your photos on your computer, do you zoom in to see how crisp and clear they are? Do you ever see an image that you missed when you actually took the photo?

What a great old structure on that property. How fun! You always have the best adventures on your walks.
Happy Friday!

Never tried to zoom in on my computer but will see if that works!

Vee said...

What a darling little cabin in the woods! I'm afraid that all zooming on my camera produces fuzziness somewhere. There's a distinct loss of clarity.

Linda Walker said...

Is that cabin inhabited?..the lawn appears to be mowed....What a charming, private little spot in the woods. However, now I want you to zoom on inside the front door because I am curious as to what lies behind the door!!! lol!

Diane said...

Neat picture! I have noticed details on the computer like an edge on a piece of art that needs trimming-- hmm... Maybe I just need glasses!

podso said...

Interesting how you barely see the cabin in the first view. And lovely views, all of them!

cucki said...

podso said...

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Thanks for taking us along on your scenic walk. I do see things in my pictures that I don't even notice right after taking them.

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

I love those photos!! I have a canon also!!

Reena Walkling said...

A great find! And yes, it's fund to discover something in your photo which you overlooked when taking it!
Have a great weekend!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Yes, yes and yes! I love to walk and snap away and then when I look at the photos later, I see all sorts of things I missed! Pretty photos Sis!

hugs,
Linda

Not being photo savy, I can tell you I use an Olympus HD/3D 12.5 super wide, 14 MP/24mm...
Got you lost Diane? Chiche, I learned how to zoom and focus, that's it! I know how to crop though on the Paint program...Do I get another point for that?
Seriously, I marvel at the many things outhere I miss because I do not take attention! God is patient tough...and He is not finished with me yet...
Enjoy His blessings Friend,

Lavender Cottage said...

You never know what lies beyond the trees do you! I like it when I find an insect on a flower once the photo makes it to the computer.
Looks like a nice place where you're getting your exercise Diane.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi, how pretty and green everything looks there. That was amazing when you zoom in and you see that little house in the woods. Thanks so much again for that walk in the woods. Have a great weekend!

Pamela Gordon said...

What a beautiful place to walk! I love your photos and the close up is wonderful. So pretty there. It looks like a tree has fallen on the back part of this building. Not sure if it's a cabin or barn but I doubt anyone's living in it now with a tree laying on it! Thanks for visiting. Pamela

Roxanne Reinhart said...

Beautiful photos Diane!! I love barns, I know you do as well. That looks like a lovely place to walk!

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Such beautiful and relaxing photos. Have a great weekend. xo

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Diane,

I enjoyed seeing where you went walking and yes, it is amazing to be able to zoom in on a subject.
I love the barn/ cottage.

Happy weekend
hugs

Donna said...

What a fantastic place to walk! I'll bet there is always something different to see!
Love the photos!

Donna said...

You put your thinking cap on for this challenge and hit it out of the park with these frame-ups! It's amazing the amount of detail that you can pick up and select for subject matter with the use of a handy zoom lens. Lovely photos AND a lovely walk!

Diane Writes said...

Where is this place? Sooo beautiful!!! Thanks for the tour namemate, if only I can step inside my monitor and see the place haha

Sally said...

Such a beautiful place to walk! Love the photo's! :)

Chel C said...

Beautiful photos and such greenery! Yes, I do zoom in when I get back home and found last week that a photo I took in London actually had one of my work colleagues in it! Have a great weekend. Chel x

Jeanne said...

Very pretty scenes. I really like them all.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

When I download, lots of times I see things I didn't know I caught! The best one was when I found I had taken a picture of a baby grebe riding on its mother's back!

I used to get more exercise when I walked pre-digital camera, that's for sure.

Your park is a beautiful place to walk and I love the dividend barn/house (?). It's fun to look at the same scene with the different crops and zooms. Very nice post.

Lorrie said...

Gorgeous photos - I love that house hidden in the trees. And all the beautiful lush green shades.
I find that I look at the landscape differently when I have my camera at hand.

Annie said...

Yes, I am often zooming in, and when cropping on the computer find things I hadn't seen before! Fun.
Cute little barn, house?

Linda R said...

What a view.. I LOVE it.

Hugs~

What a great find!! I have a smaller Cannon that fits in my purse for just carrying around. Your camera takes great pictures!
