It was a cold and windy day…but Daniel wanted to go for a hike and try out his new camera. We headed out to the nearby metro park after layering up with thick coats, heavy gloves, and warm hats. Evidently others thought the same about the weather as we saw few other people. Trying to find interesting subjects to photograph during a Midwestern January is a tough challenge, especially when there’s no snow and slight sunshine. The colors around us were largely monochromatic browns and greys, mud colors, but as you can see, Daniel did find some spots of beauty. As for me, I enjoyed spending time with Daniel and seeing the hidden loveliness of God’s creation.
