This weekened I attended a macro photography workshop by well known macro photographer, Don Komerechka. It was a fun but challenging workshop and I learned just how creative Don is and how much I have to learn. I am so far from where I want to be with macro but with patience and perseverance I think I can improve my craft. The workshop kept me quite busy so I had no time to capture something for the photo challenge. But around 6P.M. my wife suggested we go for a quick walk in the woods of the Autumn Hill Preserve in Princeton. It’s a five minute drive from our home. I brought my camera with me but after parking, I realized I had forgotten my camera card in the computer. I had pulled it out to download the images from the workshop and did not put it back. I had no choice but to use my iPhone 7.

We walked the trail in and out for about two kilometrees. It seemed to us that the old trail had been replaced with a new one. We were happy for that. The old trail had a tendency to collect rain water and get swampy. The new trail seemds to be on more solid ground.
