While I was out photographing Mountain Laurel on Saturday I noticed the rocks around me... As if for the first time. I have hiked these trails and walked these roads most of my life, but only recently noticed the wonderful colors in some of the rocks in the park. At least I had not noticed the ones that did not have a stream running over them.
Lesson for the day. Even when you are on familiar terrain and have a specific subject in mind to photograph or paint. Keep your eyes and your mind open to what is around you.
