Yesterday I went hiking with a 2 new acquaintances in the Shenandoah River Virginia State Park located 8 miles southwest of Front Royal. Unfortunately the recent rains caused the river to be high and muddy so the river was not as scenic or accessible as normal. The park itself is 1800 acres of beautiful woods, steep hills, and meadows all accessible by well maintained multi-use trails. This image was a hill side stream about a mile away from the river. Even with the recent rains it ran clear demonstrating that nature is much better at soil management than man. I took the Olympus OMD to try out carrying a lighter camera that was capable of high quality images. I like this camera more each time I use it and I will be posting several images from the hike. Olympus 12-50mm@15mm, 1/100s, f13, ISO 800, handheld.
