Monday I was dreading going for a run. My legs were sore from racing then long runnin'. But it was sooooo beautiful out. I convinced myself that I should take my camera since it was just an easy paced run. Then I had an even better idea. Take out Miss Polly Sunshine, because who knows when the last bike rideable day is, right? I went 9 miles in an undetermined amount of time. I kept stopping and starting my garmin when I was stopping to take pictures, but at one point forgot to restart it and never started it again. Oh well.
I love the colors of fall, I love fallen leaves, I love bridges, and I love Miss Polly, so they are my inspirations and subjects of the shoot.
This is my favorite of the group, and sadly it was taken while I was actually biking. This is right before my favorite part of the trail.
I love the windiness of the trail, so I tried to capture that here.
Also, there are hundreds of pine trees planted in rows here, so every time I run through it, it smells like Christmas, and I love it even more.
A zoomed out version of the windy trail.
I love this bridge, but I've never actually run across it, it's off to the right of my regular route. I think it's just a bridge to get access from the main roads to the trails actually.
Polly is just chilling while I attempt to be a photog.
I may complain about our bitterly cold/miserable weather, but it doesn't get much more beautiful than fall.
Love the crunchy fallen leaves.
Coming back over the bridge.
Peek a boo.
I thought these were beautiful with the bright orange tree peeking out in the background.
The sun is setting behind the river. (P.S. It's getting COLD and I'm still 4.5 miles from home. WHOOPS!)
My second favorite shot of the bunch. This is my favorite bridge on my route. And I love how the sun is still just barely peeking out before setting for good.
The super calm river from the bridge. It was mondo windy so I don't understand how it was so crazy still.
Got to have the reflection shot, no?
I was going for something more artistic here. It didn't work that way, but I love how bright she is next to the dark colors of the bridge and river.
