Is hunting allowed near that trail?

;-)

Rob

Hi Rob,
While I don't know about that trail. The trails that I frequent do allow hunting. The alarming part is that hunters often shoot across trails.
Sections of the trails that bend and switchback on themselves in various places...a hunter hears movement and takes blind shot. Not uncommon. I wear bright red and talk very loudly on parts of the joint use trails. But I do avoid opening day scenarios.

Heysoos, Peter! Wear red and they'll think you a red deer! Or even Santa.

Not as a rule, but there have been whitetail (deer) culls in the past due to overpopulation. It was bad c. 2003–4. On some trails you’d regularly find yourself negotiating deer traffic, and park vegetation was suffering. But this is private land and regular ol’ hunting is verboten. Nowadays close-range deer encounters are rare. This one (attached pic, from a few months ago) is about the closest I’ve been to a young buck in ~14 years. (Earlier in this thread are a pair of even closer pics of the same youngster. M9, 90mm lens.)

A different place for a walk today. Heavy overcast with a cold, damp wind led to some interpretative processing.

Fall foliage has been miserable in Massachusetts this year.
Here are a couple of minimalist fall foliage fotos.

I like! On my walk four days ago I had a pine cones on pine needles photo arranged, on the trail, and was in the process of focusing my lens when a couple ladies strolled past, lost in conversation. One of ‘em booted both cones out of place. “I think you messed up this man’s photo.” “Oh…did I? Sorreee…” In the moment I was so miffed I gave each cone another kick and then walked on.  :D

Thanks, JNB and Dave.

And Dave: You might want to hire a couple of armed guards to keep the old ladies out of camera range.   ;)

It's nice to be be able to go on stroll in any park and just stop now and then and take a photo. No pressure. However my wife would dispute that I ever go on walk without contemplating photography.

John, I really like the sheep image. PP sets them apart and creates a nice ambiance.

Eric, nice set. You got the "glow."

Dave, your story had me in stitches. Because I feel great sympathy, I am attaching a guard "dog" for you. Well sort of. Just print him out and place him where you don't want people to go near. He even has laser eyes.

The local art committee has decided on an American Dream theme for the coming months. The local museum is running American Realist painters and we even have an interpretation of a Statue of Liberty. The sculptor has decided on a beggar/fugitive variation if I'm not mistaken, not particularly original if true.

I always wondered what was with the latest trend in photography shooting directly into the sun. Especially with shadows lifted to normal daylight levels. Probably EVFs and live view makes it simple to do. idk. Like we ever are able to look straight into the sun, unless of course, we are a US president, which brings us right back to the theme I suppose.

But in this case I was quite content with the acronym for Statue of Liberty. Layers of meaning:

"SoL"

You don't need no narrative, Oscar, your photographs are eloquent enough!

I've been doing it all my life, just like gazillions of other humans... what's the big deal?

I went to Toulouse on the weekend. I expected it would be warmer than Lyon, but it was snowing on Saturday morning... so I felt jealous of the hot-house in the Jardin des Plantes...

Good shot, Oscar, even if you sold your soul to the Sol and the SoL to get it.  ;)

Wait until the political correctnesses get into power: all that disgusting muted grunting will be stopped, once and for all. In public, for heaven's sake! Enough to frighten the horses, is that. Off with their heads!
