A highlight of my summer was going on a pioneer trek with our ward. Dan and I were asked to be the trek photographers.
Actually Dan Barney did most of the photographing while I danced with cows and that sort of thing.
When I was looking at the experience through a critical, photographic eye, I had a heightened awareness of beauty around me, from the landscape to people's interactions. In the photo below, a mom and her son lay on the grass after a long, long walk.
