There were tons of cute little pinecones on the ground and I collected a few to take home. I took some quick shots of them that afternoon but was tired from the long drive and decided to spend some time to take more photos later. Here are a couple of those first shots.
Yesterday, I decided to give it a go again. The light was better the first time around, but I was really surprised when I saw this:
I thought I had three different cones, but I really only had two! That second one had opened up in the past two days and now looked just like the first and third one. Funny! I thought someone was playing a joke on me for a minute and switched it. Here are a couple more shots from my weekend.
So pretty! I had a great time up in the mountains, but now I have a cold so I'm spending my leap day on the couch under a blanket. How are you spending this bonus day?
