We arrived at Cedar Hill State Park in the evening. We were on a quest to reach the highest elevation in the Dallas area. My friends Joe and Tore let me lead the way on the trail—I figured they were in a hurry so I didn’t doddle – which was very uncharacteristic for me. I was just happy to be there.
Then Joe stopped. He spotted webs on a plant. I love details like that and was excited he was interested enough to stop. He suggested I place one of my miniatures on the web.
He selected one of my new ‘sitting miniature men’. I used my new macro lens. Here’s the shot.
We continued on our trek and Joe had even more ideas…
Joe didn’t stop with the tree climbers. He set up a camera man nearby to photograph the tree climbers. I was stunned by this creativity.
Same photographer. Just the back view.
I had so much fun watching Joe strategically place the miniatures for me to photograph.
That trail was very enjoyable but why stop with one trail? We continued to another trail and arrived just in time for the sunset.
The experience wasn’t really about reaching the highest elevation but the journey to get there. What a memorable experience!
Here’s the fun character responsible for the photo shoot!
Notes: Take the time to have fun!
