Bob’s Hill via Catoctin National Recreation Trail, Cunningham Falls State Park

Bob’s Hill via Catoctin National Recreation Trail in Cunningham Falls State Park is brief and surrounded by texture, which was the focus on my photography today. I had just taken a glass workshop on textures and 3D casting, so my eyes were tuned in to those details. Lots of fungus, moss, bark, large stones with crystalline streaks, and lichen. I was likin’ the lichen, as Dar aptly punned.

No funny faces were captured on this escapade. It was overcast, perhaps we weren’t feeling it.
