Walden Pond - Walden Pond State Park, Concord Massachusetts
Okay this image isn't directly a nature image. I just happened to be running around the trail surrounding Walden Pond with a high school classmate living in the area. The nature spin of this image is Thoreau, a return to nature and the basics 19th century philosopher. Since I was running, which is a back to nature thing for me, in low profile shoes. I rode up to Maine on my motorcycle, the most economical method I could think of with the time I had. And, I was shooting minimalist style with my iPhone and or P&S style, I thought running around Thoreau's old stomping grounds were appropro. Okay, he probably wouldn't have embraced the high tech I was using or even the motorcycle I had but it sure beat the large truck, camper, and heavy professional camera I otherwise would've used. For me at least, I was pointing in Thoreau's direction which makes the run that much more connected to his spirit.
