Life is hectic. Photographing it makes it more manageable.

On our second day's hike, we walked past this weathered stump on the descent. I thought, "Wow. That'd look great in black and white!" Fortunately, our dads wanted to take a break shortly after, so I doubled back to catch this one. The midday sun was pretty harsh, and I stacked some filters to get the depth of field I wanted. The vignetting was a side effect.
