Because I live at the edge of a national park I get to go on stinky walks across to the next town to do my shopping. I don't always do this but when I do I'm glad I did.Also, lots of snakes and it's kind of stressful because everything looks like a fucking snake. Especially when I come home at sunset and it gets dark along the creek
>>2662445I'm such a sap for lakes like this. I drag my friends on long tedious canoe trips because I want to explore every bit of shoreline.https://youtu.be/DzNtr1g9Kp0?si=Hj2tTQHcjsb7bGRC
>>2662447I enjoy the misty morning. It’s such a beautiful sight. Canoe sounds awesome mate.
>>2662448where is this lovely (and likely terrifying) coniferous landscape?
>>2662449Golyam Beglik , Bulgaria.Technically it’s a water reservoir. Great place for camping though
>>2662451well that's pretty nice. my hometown has a ton of lakes but the only ones with clean shorelines like that are also reservoirs. the only problem is they are very strict about trespassing; there's just no access of any kind allowed on those. but they sure are pretty.
>>2662455(different anon) - there's a lot of reservoir lakes here (no real lakes except one that's a flooded sinkhole I guess), the issue is more that it has not rained a lot here since ~ late April and it's genuinely depressing how low the levels are, especially the bigger onesi'm really hoping for a wetter winter
>>2662460yeah man I feel that. a few years ago it was so dry in my town that the water level in our reservoirs got lower than ever, and those reservoirs are over 100 years old. the fucked up thing is a car appeared in the mud. turns out it had a skeleton inside - the person and car were reported missing back in the 80s.so I can happily say that for literally my entire life I was low-key drinking and bathing in drownedwhore tea on a daily basis.
>>2662455Is it like that country wide ? Or it’s just for water reservoirs. Here I camped on someone’s ranch basically although, it’s governmental land with a caretaker. He was pretty chill. Gave us some fresh cheese to try.
>>2662473nah it's just reservoirs for drinking water that are off-limits. it's a bit of a double edged sword though, because sometimes the deer and fish are overpopulated and their shit accumulates in the water supply so then they need to cull. I think the basic rule of not allowing anyone nearing drinking water is probably good overall, but yeah they struggle to keep phosphates and nitrates downdoubt these policies are national, or even state-wide. but it's how it works in my hometown

There is a lake about 1/4 mile from my house down an old logging road on the wildlife sanctuary that borders my property. I enjoy walking or riding our horse down to it.I enjoy living in Appalachia very much.
>>2662804oh my gosh he's beautiful and what a great spot. I grew up on a large property in New England and my dad had 2 horses until I was about 5 but I remember them fondly. He used to race through the woods on the back of Jem in all weather. Must have been amazing. I'm jealous of my dad and of you anon.
>>2662804Do you your maxloaded Walkers off of them with the reins in your teeth?
>>2662805Thank you. Valor is such a great horse. I think of him as a "war horse". He has that fire in his eyes. He won, placed or showed in 6 of the 11 races he was in as a young thoroughbred. He ran at Belmont Park, Saratoga and Churchill Downs.Unfortunateley for the owners that wanted to race him he got bowed tendons and had to stop racing. Lucky for me though because I have a real war horse to enjoy walks to the lake with.
>>2662801>>2662802Thanks for the fix, much better now.
>>2662809>ValorI love that. Take care of him anon and mind his tendons, he's a fucking gem
>>2662460Are you in VA?

Neat tree roots I saw today.
It got pretty dark and spot the moment I stepped into this.

>>2663741Spruce Pine is not a spruce. It is sort of an uncommon Pine. I think they call it spruce pine because of the branch arrangement or something idk.

Walk along the lake mid-October. I still go out every other day, but now it's just grey and miserable, so I don't even bother bringing the camera.
>>2665123ohio river-ish? I love photos with power plants in them but also nature-y stuff
Yesterday, first blue skies since three weeks i went for a bike ride. It's back to rain today.
>>26654122/2the view behind
does anyone want to go for a bushwalk at night with me? it's the most fun you can have taking photos but my friends don't understand and aren't interested
>>2665455>finally get great auroras here>it's cloudyIt's so tiresome. Haven't seen good ones since 2016.

Some of these photos are so nice. What kind of cameras are you bringing outdoors? Is bringing a tripod a must?

I thought I'd go stargazing since supposedly there's some Bortle 2 places not too far away but when I got there it was probably a 4. Really disappointing but I took some slow exposure stuff with my phone which makes it look much nicer than it actually was
>>2667044It's really nice to drive back from a hike at night and watch the stars out the open sunroof. You'd be surprised how dark it can get if you just get a bit outside civilization. What is Bortle?
>>2667078Lol RIP. They are fairly rare here though I would never cut one but I understand they are more common in many places.
How far away from inhabitation do you have to be to be /out/?
>>2667080Yeah, we have white ash here and it has been devastated by the emerald ash borer. I've got at least 20 cords of standing dead ash on my 4 acre lot.
>>2667109Yeah I live on a pretty big tract of old family property, alot of hardwood bottomlands and about half as much upland. think alot of what I'm seeing is Swamp Ash. I don't really cut any wood though I have very little use for it. I have a big stack of post oak but I rarely burn any of it.
>>2667047Bortle scale is a way of classifying night skies, 9 being so much light pollution you can only see the brightest of stars/planets and 1 being clear enough you could feasibly see by starlight. In real life it was clear enough to see the milky way but it was kinda faint.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bortle_scale
