The Local Trail

Everyone has a local trail. Bozeman’s is the “M” trail at the S end of the Bridger Mountains.

Our family likes to do the circuit of local trails for our day hikes – because the M has its crowds, of course. But tonight, the trail was relatively barren at sunset and we enjoyed its moods as alpenglow blanketed it.

Tonight, I finally left the crappy little m.Zuiko lenses behind on the Olympus E-P1 and screwed on an M-mount lens. Manual focus, manual exposure, far fewer pictures … and a lot more photographic enjoyment. The type of photography for which I think the E-P1 will shine.
