Despite having spent more miles and nights on the trail than I ever have before, I have taken remarkably few photos this year. I am not sure what has happened. I have found my motivation for photography tapering off to non existence this summer. I don’t know if it’s because of the feeling that I just can’t compete with all of the other photographers, or if it’s the fact that I have been distracted with a new baby arriving soon, or if it’s simply a temporary change in interests that will resolve itself with time. Whatever the reason I am writing off this summer as an exploratory summer as I spent many trips checking out places I have never been to before. At any rate I’ve had very few photos to post on here this year, but here is one that I managed to capture while on an evening picnic with my family this July.
