This is a beautiful hillside next to the road that runs down into the area in which we live. This hillside is covered with majestic old Oak trees and California Buckeye trees (which are just beginning to get their green leaves for this year). We have quite a few deer that travel in our area and can often be seen on trails like this one along our hillsides and behind our house. In addition to the families of deer, we have families of wild turkeys that seem to like this hillside.
The photo was taken with my new Canon EOS 6D, EF24-105mm f/4L IS lens, 1/2000 sec at f/5, ISO 1000 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card.
You shot from just the right spot to capture the deer path curving like the tree branches! I want to follow the deer up the path they’ve carved out, to see what they can see on top of and over the hill. Lush color, beautiful shapes and shadows, great composition (proportion of trees and hill). I love that this is what we get to see everyday and happy that you got in on camera.
wow, Marty this is really beautiful. You made the perfect cropping to make it mysterious but very inviting.
Thanks Jenny– That was just the look I wanted when I went up there to take this shot.
That is incredible! I must have this one. It makes me want to sing “The Hill are alive with the sound of music.”
