i ♥ the woods

hello :) one of my favourite things about fall is going for walks in the woods. ivan and i went on sunday and guess what we saw?
deer! we saw 3 deer and we got so excited. they are so beautiful and graceful. thumbs up to ivan for his wildlife photography. if only we had brought the zoom lens!

we found a tiny tunnel...actually just a big metal tube thing.
we took some photos and then stood inside and sang 'stand by me' acapella (inspired by our friends who showed us their 'stand by me' duet, hehe). it sounded amazing!

then we found some giant mushrooms. they don't even look like mushrooms, more like giant baseballs.
that's ivan's hand for scale...he has big hands.

 my dirty shoes :)

and...the other day kaylah suggested trying some jumping photos...
this next one is my favourite, haha. i think it's funny, and it didn't come out blurry.

seriously so fun.
have a good night :)

  4. i love fall walks too and that photo of you with the bright red leaf is adorable. if i was feeling better i would definitely be going for some pretty fall walks with a tea and camera in hand. hopefully soon i'm feeling better and then the weather will be chillier (today was actually hot! weird hey?)

  5. Ummm can I please live there? We have got to have the ugliest fall weather in CA! Seriously. Not much pretty colors going on, and most people don't live near "woods" - and most deer are in the mountains. Sadface!

  6. We get to see lots of deer here, but we don't have any nice woods to walk through. I love your jumping pictures.

  7. I love woodland! Though I'm not quick enough to get pretty deer photos! It looks like you had an awesome time though!
