An Afternoon Hike

It wasn’t hard for my new 4-year-old grandson to convince me to take him on his first hike.

Photographing daytime orbs requires sun and a shadowed area/tree to position the orbs in front of. Thin cloud cover makes photographing them easier too.

I always hold my left hand up to block the sunlight from my eyes and use the camera’s display to locate the sun and orbs.

Jaxson, Buffy and I had a lot of fun. Looks like maybe the orbs did too.

    • It was his first hike. He’s hooked now. I have 2 grandkids in Florida and 2 near Boston, which I only see for a couple of weeks in the summer. So, it is such fun to watch his enthusiasm and wonder.
