Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
well its saturday the 25th and i thought id take a trip down to the river.
first thing i do when i get there is look UP
fortunately, at the tiem of the photograph the sun was TRYING to come out. but the majority of the time it was pretty overcast.
then i get to the american river foot bridge
here is a view from the begining of the foot bridge across the river onto the cliffs
I eventually end up at the edge and very top of that later.
half way across the foot bride i spot this
then i get across the bridge and walk up a VERY steep and twistie path
It had been pouring rain all night and in the morning so take it from me this was NOT fun to try to climb up. it gets steeper and twistier.
this is now at the top of what i told you i would get to. pretty high cliff. the view was pretty cool from up here. wish the weather was a bit nicer i would have chilled out a bit longer.
then exploring the top side of this area i spot some deer. and they spot me.
they I catch some turkeys red handed
and then these are just some misc pics i took from begining to end of the little hike/walk
leave comments please

id love some feedback
some very nice shots here, both color and composition wise. it'd be easier to crit if there were some from of numbering of the shots but i'll crit some that stand out to me.
the bridge shot is really quite nice. what iso/ shutter speed/ f-stop were you using? colors are nice, nice perspective, though i'm curious to see a shot from a little higher up, maybe the level of the top of the hand-rails. The DOF looks a little shallow to me for such a nice shot, maybe it's just the small size of the picture, or me, either way that's why i inquired about the f-stop and so on.
i also really like the walking trail picture. only thing i can say on that is watch your corners, that branch kind of bungles up the very nice composition. otherwise very nice color. peaceful somewhat lonely feeling, also a sense of adventure for sure.
as for now those're the ones that really stood out to me. keep shooting, great stuff
thanks alot for the c&c i appreciate it. I added soem numbering to help in the c&c process, didnt think of that.
most of the shots were at iso 50. and i witchd back and forth between full manual and shutter priority mode. I believe the bridge was done in Tv. I took TONS of photos while i was walking around 40+ so i cant recal the setting on that one. sorry
what camera were you using?
i like the colors very much, but i think some pictures miss something that keeps the eye interested, for example the second and third deershot.
please number your pics next time it makes giving c&c on them a lot easier
it is a canon a610, i also use a canon eos20d, but just dont carry it with me much for the bulk and fear of losing/theft/damage etc...
thanx for the c&c
