    We have had a run of unusual and unpredictable weather lately. One day it will be sunny and 50+, another overcast and rainy. I thought Winter was finally returning last week, when it was very windy, cold, and pouring the rain. (It doesn't get much colder than a frigid December rain.) However, Saturday was quite nice again. Best part about hiking this time of year is one rarely sees other people in the woods. Olympus OM-D E-M5 + ZD 14-54 f/2.8-3.5.

    PS: That is not my shadow in #2. There was a big tree behind me and to my right that cast what I thought was an interesting shadow.

    Ridges & valleys...woods are pretty thick too.

    2nd photo, top left corner, side edge of the rock next to large tree trunk looks like the side view of a head.
    ( black spot is the eye, then the nose, then a black crevice for the mouth, then the square jaw, LOL )

    Oh, yes. To get from photo #1 to photo #3 was quite a long steep climb. I love doing that, though. Buried in my archives from last Winter I have photos of these same hills covered in deep snow and ice, with a bright sun blazing through the trees. It was breathtaking.

    Funny you should mention the head. My first thought on seeing the scene was that of a huge turtle head, with the point of the snout to the right.
