How Low Can You Go?

Radnor Reflections, July 28, 2011

I see these little mushrooms as trail accessories. It is necessary to practically lie on the ground to get a photo of one, but then the trail becomes the photographer’s accessory since the chips tend to stick to sweat! I mean dewiness. It was in the high 90’s again today. I’d hate to think I’m getting used to this.

  1. I always carry a pad that I can put between me and the ground when I kneel, sit, or even lie down to take pictures.

  2. That is a great idea, Steve, that I will definitely use on longer hikes. On the short Radnor walk, only 3 miles, I travel light. Don’t tell on me, but I don’t take a tripod either.

  3. My pad is made of a lightweight foam, so it’s no burden, and I take it even on short photo jaunts; the ground in Texas is hostile to my delicate skin. Like you, I rarely carry a tripod, which would encumber me much more than the mat; my camera bag is already plenty heavy.
