Since I got my camera, I've been learning a lot about aperture, ISO, shutter speed, and I'll admit, a bit about editing photos using adobe photoshop. I know that there are a lot of mixed emotions about the use of photoshop on photos, so let me start out by saying that most of my photos use a minimum amount of editing, and I will be the first one to say that I am anything but a professional photographer. I will not pretend that I have any great talent and I'm probably more of a "point and shoot" photographer than anything else at this point. That being said, it's amazing what kind of photos you can get using a higher-grade camera than with your iPhone. I have been so grateful for the opportunities I've had to take photos with this camera, and of course, I'm grateful for the technologies that allow me to edit out my skin blemishes (my complexion is not perfect).
One of my more recent photo opps was on a family hiking trip. Our first successful one to date! We even went further than we had anticipated and we all had a pretty good time! Chelsea got a little bored with the continuous scenery of trees and trail, but by the end, she was having a pretty good time and even got to chew on a few rocks! It was a little scary because it's pretty steep at the top so none of us could leave her side for a moment (of course, none of us would anyway).

Drew's brother, Karl, accompanied us on our little family hike. Pretty obvious they're brothers, isn't it? (Drew's on the left)

View from the top. That rock in the corner can be seen all the way from the valley!

See? She had a great time, runny nose and all!

We got the rock out eventually. And we wonder how she got the blister on her molar...

Happy Monday, everyone!
