September 28 - 2014 - While I was out exploring today I came across this spider. In fact I almost walked right through it trying to get down to the edge of the water. I decided to step back and take a photo. I couldn't quit get close enough so I decided to mount my camera to a mono pod with a remote and then my camera could get close without me having to. This was done mainly because I could not get the angle I was looking for had I gone down the path and it was too far away from above.
When the sun started to set it threw some nice colors into the sky to the east. I quickly got off the highway and looked for a nice comp really quick. It didn't turn out quite like I planned but I did stumble upon a pasture with horses eating the grass. They quickly came to the fence line to greet me when I got this photo.
