INTO THE WILD.

8.30.2013









we've been longing for a good trip to the woods for months now.
a friend suggested we check out the ohiopyle area and it did not disappoint.
we arrived at the campground late saturday afternoon and were greeted by the
cool breeze. we picked up a few bundles of firewood and set off to find our spot. we
were surrounded by fellow campers and the ground was a little wet but nothing could bring
us down. we were enveloped by the dense forest. the aroma of campfires and sounds of wilderness.
the night promised to bring cold weather. and we were thankful we brought extra blankets. we made
dinner and enjoyed a few drinks by the fire. listening to ben howard and feeling so at home.

  3. Absolutely beautiful pictures--simple and lovely. I've been feeling the "camping itch" for awhile now, and am finally going next week. Couldn't be more excited.

    If you don't mind my asking, what lens did you shoot these with?
