I took these photos on one of those unexpectedly sunny weekends. What started as a family walk turned into a family frolic. We chased each other around tree trunks and twirled until we fell over. We collected acorns and dueled with sticks. The silliness that a two-year-old brings out is amazing.

I even took some pictures. for these first two I was experimenting with sun stars and perspectives on those long tree shadows. These Garry Oak trees have already dropped most of their leaves and I like their bare, linear look. The black and white treatment accentuates this.

Finally, looking straight up into the sky. I especially like the bits of sunlight on the centre tree.
Challenges during this photo shoot had to do, for the most part, with doing two things at once. Let's just say that camera settings for trees against bright sky are very different from those for family silliness among falling shadows. I was going back and forth, wishing for more efficient controls, and not always getting it right. Oh well. The fun far outweighed the camera frustration.
