Photo Tip Friday - Other Details Too
A bit of a different tip for today.
I love to explore new areas when taking photos, and I always try to make sure I have what I am going to need with me for my equipment.
For sure, I will always find something - even just walking under the power lines will yield something worth photoing.
New views, plants, rocks - my eyes are always open for something.
With the powerlines humming above us as we walk along, we stopped under one set to take a break - sitting on the concrete base so we are off the ground.
I'm interested in looking through the viewfinder, my husband is scanning the scenery for any wildlife.
Both absorbed in our actions, we were not paying too much attention to our very immediate surroundings.
And that was our downfall.
It's chilly outside and we are in a shrubby area with tall grass - and the soil is rather sandy.
Perfect for tracking the wildlife.
And perfect for one of nature's big menaces.
Ticks - lots of them.
I saw one on my husband - and he was just like velcro - no brushing him off.
Then I looked down - they were all through the grass and climbing up - towards me.
My first thought - I should have tucked my jeans in my boots, then sprayed all my clothing with repellent.
One of the details I forgot about - it will not happen again.
Need to think beyond just the equipment!
