My Picture of the Week

I truly enjoy photography, especially nature scapes. This is mainly due to my love of hiking and "National Geographic". Being outdoors a great deal also puts me in great locations to take some nice pics. I want to share these with you here, so what I've decided to do is post a weekly picture, my favorite at that time shall we say. I hope you like them. I will include the title and a brief description of each one. Feel free to let me know what you think.

This weeks pic is "A Wintery Bluff" and it was taken shortly after a light snowfall. The Bluff is one of my favorite places for day hiking, no matter the time of year. On this day though I was simply visiting my folks and playing with my son in the backyard. The grays in this pic are inspiring and illustrate in color how color is not always needed to make a great picture. The pic and the time with my son made for a great day.

Starting Off

Well, here I go. I am off on my journey into bloggerdom. I have been trying to find a way to improve my writing skills and increase my audience and everyone tells me this is how to do it. I am not the most advanced computer user around that is for sure, so starting this was as intimidating as taking that first leap off the bridge at Silver Hill. For you readers in southern NB you likely know what I mean. (Like I really have any readers yet, hahaha)

In this blog you'll find stories about day hikes, backpacking trips, outdoor adventures and mishaps. From time to time I may even write about other things, such as environmental issues, family life, my work, etc. I hope I don't disrepect anyone, but let me say in advance if I do, I apologize, I don't mean too. If that is not good enough....well...suck it up and get over it.

So who am I? Nobody really, I enjoy hiking and backpacking, climbing, kayaking, and canoeing. My playground is the Atlantic Provinces where I have spent at least a night camping in all of them and have done some multi-day backpackin g trips in all but PEI. Sorry Islanders, I just haven't had the chance, and I'm not sure of any good multi-day trips over there. If you know of one I'd love to hear about it.

Well this is getting to long for a blog.

See you in the woods.
