The Trail:Winter

The trail is alive in winter.  It may look dreary and bleak but hidden behind the tree limbs and tall grass lives a world of new and exciting things.  Forgotten old buildings,  springs leading to and fro, and homes of deer and rabbits were once hidden from view but now manifest themselves for the pioneering eye.  It’s a new world for the curious and adventurous.  It’s a new world for me.

  1. “Whisker” “Hidden” and “Blue Day” are my favorites! Beautiful. But I just saw “Missing” again and there’s something about that one too. Beautiful! I love the blue peaking out in that picture (Missing).

  2. Back before Homeland Security and all that, we (meaning Boy Scouts) used to hike many stretches of railroad tracks through southwest Ohio. It was safer than many of the highways, after all.
    Your photos stir many memories.

      • The rails-to-trails movement has been a great blessing across the country.
        Here in Dover we now have the Community Trail running in two directions from downtown — one leg down an old railroad line. It includes a marvelous bridge over the river that was adapted for pedestrians only.
        I’ll be posting about it, with photos, later this spring.
        At the moment, it’s essentially a cross-country ski trail. Now, to get my skis fixed and a set of new boots …

  3. I adore Light of my Life.I keep staring at it waiting for someone or something to come up onto the bridge from the other direction! Yeah, I know, I’m strange like that! Love them, nice work.

  4. I noticed a couple of responses about “Whisker” and I picked it as my favorite, too. I wonder sometimes, though, if I don’t pick my favorites by your names. The images are spellbinding, but your names for them are equally intriguing. Excellent combination.

  5. wow…now these are special! into the nitty gritty of the old trail… Whisker made me smile, but I have to say Light of my life(my fav) and Missing are very vocal photos for me…I know they have stories to tell???

  6. Hi Seth,
    I will say it again; your use of selective color is “très beau”. The scene is gorgeous. I love the perspective,refection & dab of color.

  7. Light of my life – is my pick out of this good bunch – but this a truly great collection of photos – I like the photo where you caught the reflection in the puddle – I do the same.

    • Thanks so much. Glad you like the colors. I literally just pull out all color except for one. So the blue you see is the real blue color. 🙂 I love that effect too. 🙂

  8. These are all great, I like “Light of my life”, “The scene”, and “Blue day” especially. 🙂
    And I think every photographer (or at least anyone with a camera and imagination + curiosity(?)) has taken a photo (or more) with their camera on the ground. It makes interesting shots, in my opinion. 🙂
