    The last official Saturday of Summer was spent on a much needed 6.5 mile outing in the woods. The day was so beautiful and mild, I was amazed to find when I came down out of the woods that the state forest was nearly deserted. A day like that usually finds the place crawling with people. I carried my NEX-6 and all 3 little Pen F lenses for a very lightweight travel kit, although I forgot to pack my newly charged spare battery, and never got around to using the 20mm. No matter, I still got some shots I liked.

    Some good stuff there...and a beautiful looking day for sure.
    I'd like to run across a spider web like that one early some morning myself...wet with dew drops, bright sun behind it, etc

    Thanks. I was hoping for some fog/mist yesterday morning, as well, but the temperature/dew point spread was too high, and it was rather breezy. It was an excellent balmy day, just a bit drier than I expected.

    Indeed they are. Today is overcast and about 15 degrees cooler than yesterday.

    Thanks Nick.
