A Hiker and A Frog

Do I have to "hop off the straight and narrow whenever I can and take the winding paths, in order to experience the exhilaration of the view from the edge?"


So I hop like a frog, but I am really not, thus I settle down to walk like a man again.


Interestingly, I manage to enjoy beauties while staying in the straight and narrow, without taking any winding paths, and without hopping.


The beauties stay straight in front of me, all the time. No tricks, and no hide and seek.


A hiker may not necessary be a frog.

What a wonderful way of seeing!

Lepiej już nie baw się w żabę, bo nie potrzeba. Sam widzisz jakie masz piękne zdjęcia chodząc prostą drogą. Pozdrawiam.
You'd better not play with a frog, because I do not need. You see what you have beautiful pictures of walking the straight path. Yours.

Debbie said...

You can see a lot in the woods even if you stay on the straight and narrow path with your feet. As long as your eyes roam around! (And you see so much beauty! Thanks for sharing it.)

Rainfield, you do have a way of making even the simplests look beautiful. I enjoyed your hop or hike in your forest. Lovely post, have a great day!

Beautifully with the simple! Nicely photographed in backlight. I love the first image with the two leaves of the reflexes in the background / Brita

A frog has to hop, but you can hop, walk, crawl, and run without much thought.

EG CameraGirl said...

I think it's important as we journey through life to see the world every day as if everything is brand new - like a child does. :)

Frieda said...

Such a lovely collection of beauties (and you didn't even have to jump like a frog to find them :)

Ivanhoe said...

Sweet story! I love taking walks in woods. My dogs enjoy it even more :)

bailey-road.com said...

You have found the light in the darkness.

Nancy said...

So true, if we stay on a certain path and walk slowly, we will see more. It's hard to discover the beauty in the little things without stopping to look. Beautiful photos! Thanks for posting and blessings, Nancy

Leovi said...

I love interesting photos first.

Betty Manousos said...

aah, all your pictures always have a touch of magic, which i really like so much:)

hope you're having a good weekend~
:)

JDS said...

Nice post. Sometimes we miss the beauty that is right before us because we spend so much time thinking only about the side paths.

betchai said...

beautiful images, Rainfield, love the composition and depth of field in each of your photos, and as always, awesome thoughts :)

Bangchik and Kakdah said...

For the size of frogs, theirs eyes are massive. I bet they can see more!!

Sommerfugl Design said...

Lovely shots.

Angie said...

Gorgeous pics as usual and I love your interpretation.

Looking forward for more amazing pictures.

lorik said...

Beautiful effects of light on colour. I can't decide on a favourite - i like the last for it's simplicity and composition, the second for the textures and patterns and the first for it's drama and contrast.

Such a fun walk with you!

RNSANE said...

Good thing...I can manage a slow walk but hopping is hardly possible for me.

These shots are really amazing Rain! You're exceptional at photography as much as with your witty words. :)
