Into The Forest

What’s up, everyone? How’s your day going? What has your weather been like this summer?

We’ve had aย very hot past couple of months as usual, but the other day we had some surprisingly cool and refreshing weather, which was really nice. I took the rare opportunity to go into the woods and do some exploring (and some photography, of course!) along with two of my sisters. ๐Ÿ™‚

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? It’s so pretty and fuzzy!

I love finding the tiny splashes of color among the greens and browns of the forest. They’re so fun to photograph!

We have a large creek that runs along one side of our property. It’s a lot of fun to wade in! Right before the creek flows onto our land, it runs under a bridge which unfortunately is a place where a lot of people dump things into the creek. :/ One upside to that, however, is that some very interesting things have washed up onto our land over time! We once found a cassette tape in the creek that still played music after some minor repairs. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Our woods are full of huge spiders. Though their webs are always in the way and it’s quite annoying, they really are beautiful creatures. *sighs as everyone shrieks at the sight of a spider* XD

This spider’s web kinda reminds me of broken glass. ๐Ÿ˜€

Can you find the creature in this picture? Tell me in the comments if you find him!

I love exploring! It seems like there’s always some little corner of the woods that’s waiting to be discovered. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for taking the time to read my post!

Have you ever gone exploring? Which picture was your favorite? Which picture was yourย least favorite? Please let me know in the comments — your feedback helps me become a better photographer!

  1. Ooh, so pretty, Clara! It’s so neat getting to see the photos you were talking about in the chat. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favorite photos were the spider ones and the creek, and my least favorite were the first few flower ones. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Still your photography is amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€ (gasp I DIDN’T SAY IT. Have I proved my devotion now?? XD)

  2. Forests/woods are so pretty, and yours is no exception! We have a creek, too, although I probably wouldn’t like the wade in it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like both photos of the spiders. I agree, they are neat and sometimes pretty, but it sure is annoying when you run into its web!

  3. Hehe I think I found the creature in that photo! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And all those photos are gorgeous! We used to have a big land, but we didn’t have grass like that. XD How many acres do you have? I love exploring as well.

  4. Amazing photos! I love exploring even living in the suburbs we have a large pond by our house, I explore with my friends a lot down there. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s been extremely hot here as well sometimes getting to 105 or 100.

  6. Gorgeus pictures, Clara! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to explore, but unfortunately I live in the middle
    of a large suburb. :/ Not to mention that where I live, our summers are very hot and very humid! My favorite picture was the (I think) 8th one, with the green leaf that is slightly tinged with red. My least favorite is maybe the one of the creek, but I assure you I enjoyed them all.๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thank you so much, Olivia! Aw, I hope you get to explore sometime. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, our summers are hot and humid as well! And thanks so much for the feedback – I really appreciate it!

  7. Great pictures!! The woods are lovely, I love to visit them! I think my favorite is the picture that is right before the picture you used for the feature image. I also really like the little orange mushroom that’s second to last. It looks so glowy and pretty ๐Ÿ™‚ . Least favorite?….ummm, I guess the one of the leaf (third after the flowers), because it didn’t seem very interesting. Funny though, because we all have different tastes, as my least favorite was that one, and favorite was the creek, and Olivia was opposite, and Charis said her least favorite was the flowers, but I kind of like them? Very interesting… XD ๐Ÿ˜€ . It’s wonderful how we are all created uniquely.
    Great phototography!!!

  8. Ahh, lovely photos as always, Clara! โ™ฅ So pretty!
    Wow, that’s so weird and neat about the cassette tape. O.o But annoying that people dump things in your creek. :/ They dump junk on one of the paths on our farm and it’s so annoying! Just take your trash home and throw it away, people. XD
    Heh heh, I think spiders are neat too! Mind you, I don’t like them crawling over me or anything, but I do like to watch them from a distance and learn about them. ๐Ÿ˜› They really are fascinating creatures, aren’t they?
    YES! I found the creature! Is it a little brown frog or toad?
    I agree, it’s so fun to explore the woods – with your camera especially. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Ahem, now for my favorite and least favorite pictures.
    Favorites:
    This mushroom picture. It’s so ADORABLE and beautiful and bright!

    I think this one of the twig on the tree is pretty and aesthetic.

    The first one of the spider is really neat! I like the bright, bokeh-y background.
    I think this one is stunning with the super bright red leaf on the neutral background.

    Least Favorites:
    This picture didn’t seem to have the best lighting and it wasn’t super interesting content, in my opinion.

    And I don’t think this one was bad, necessarily, it just didn’t seem to have much of a focus.

    I know I always say this, but I really and truly love your photography posts! โ™ฅ They’re some of my favorite posts to read!

    1. Thank you so much, Allison!!!
      I know, right? How hard is it to just carry a candy wrapper the extra mile and throw it away in your own house? XD
      Yes, they are! Their webs are so intricate and beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜€
      Good work! Yep, it’s a tiny little toad. ๐Ÿ˜‰ He was only about as big as my fingernail!
      Oh wow, thank you SO much for taking the time to tell me your favorites and least favorites! That helps me so much. THANK YOU!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
      Aw, I’m so glad you enjoy reading my photography posts! Thanks again!

  9. tries not to start singing “Into the Woods” reading your title
    sees you write into the woods and can’t help myself
    LOL! Awesome pictures, Clara! AND THEN YOU GO POST PHOTOS OF SPIDERS CLOSE UP AND I GO RUN FOR MY LIFE. XD XD
    My…least favorite? PLOT TWIST QUESTION AT THE END! XD I thought all the pictures were cool, but I think I like the more landscape views ones the least…I usually like to focus more on one thing up close, at least in this case! ๐Ÿ˜€ EXCEPT SPIDERS. NEVER LIKING PICTURES OF SPIDERS EVEN IF THE PICTURE IS SUPER COOL. ACK SPIDERS. XD LOL!
