Lake Monroe, Indiana
I hike throughout the year in all conditions looking for those moments when nature shows it's special side. I often take my dogs, which can be a mixed blessing. Sometimes they just scare things away before I even see them, but sometimes, as in this case, they chase things toward me. And don't worry - they could never catch a deer.
sharpness, contrast. I shoot in RAW, so as you are aware, all the basics are slightly adjusted.
