Default Out for a hike (lots of pics!)

Headed out to the local metro parks yesterday to put the 18-250 through it's paces in a tough environment. Lots of shade, higher ISOs, sometimes small subjects, contrasty light...Here are some of the keepers IMHO.

Lovely series, I always like well composed mysterious trail shots.

You have a great eye for detail and for composition, and a very nice location for using your new lens!

Interesting perspective in some of the shots, I like them. The range of the lens makes a lot of things possible with out a lens change, enjoy your new toy

I was thinking the same thing Hans was - you really can do a lot with this one lens, and come out with quality pictures. While I love the rusted horse shoe (having once owned horses I feel for the owner who will have to pay a farrier to replace it) my favorite is the trail shot, the lines of the straight tree trunks and the trail/old road are wonderful.

Thank you very much for the compliment. For my wife, it means lots of stopping and waiting, but she doesn't seem to mind all that much (or she just doesn't complain about it!)

Thank you. Taking a single lens is definitely nice. Although sometimes the challenge of having to move your feet to get the composition is nice too. In a situation like this, I was able to get some photos though that I couldn't otherwise without risking poison ivy!

The horseshoe was one of those things I was fortunate enough to notice. I could have walked right by that tree 50 times and never seen it. I was very lucky to see it there!

Looks like a great day in the park. As others have said, you have a very good eye for nice details.
