This is one more photo from last week's hike. I somehow like photos of such sharp turns. Maybe because the incline is visible? Not sure.

Hi friends!
As I won't be able to compile the video the next day, I decided to just share the photos already. I played around a lot with foregrounds .. and honestly deleted most of them - but I also learned a lot.
We did this trail ... many years ago and we always wanted to revisit it. (of course I felt challenged to take better photos as well)
I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I did walking the trail.

A stunning scene of a river running through a lush forest is captured in this image. The forest is filled with tropical and subtropical coniferous trees, creating a dense canopy overhead. The vibrant green vegetation contrasts beautifully against the clear blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds. The river flows gently through the landscape, reflecting the surrounding trees and sky. The overall ambiance is peaceful and serene, evoking a sense of tranquility and natural beauty. This picturesque…
