Take the Time

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, WI

Last weekend I went camping with some close friends and my wife to northern Wisconsin. Since I do a lot of cross-country travel, I definitely do not give enough attention to the amazing Wisconsin north woods in my own back yard. I'm really glad to have made it up there while the leaves were changing colors. We got a campsite on a gorgeous river and pretty much just took it slow all weekend. It was one of those relaxing nature experiences I cherish that made it easy to step back and think about the big picture.

I don't think we saw the sun the entire weekend, so there wasn't any interesting directional light to photograph. However, I loved that I was able to slowly walk up and down the river a couple of times over the course of the weekend to explore and search for compositions with consistent lighting conditions. I saw this one shortly after I got there and didn't get around to shooting this until a couple of mornings later but it ended up being my favorite photo. I love this style of slow, thoughtful photography and intend to do more of it.
