Went on a two day, 12 mile trek to the Pinnacle – Appalachian,Philadelphia with my friends. It was the first time I ever went camping. One of my friends told me that it will be a long hike and adding a 15 pound tripod to the existing 30 pound backpack would be a VERY BAD idea. Well, I invested in a second hand trekpod.
I was SO exhausted I had no patience to take my camera out and mount it on my tripod. Finally I come across this spring,and took this photo.
Took a couple of attempts, where I kept playing with the shutter speed. By the time I took 8 attempts, a couple of small frogs were just sitting on my shoes. Actually there were many of them.
