Capture October 2021

It was one of those fall days when you bring a light jacket but need a parka. However, we weren’t about to let the cold, rainy weather stop us from reaching the top of Maiden Cliff in Camden. My friend Joel and I dredged through the mud on the short jaunt up the hill, and the reward was this photo: a moody blend of rain, fog, and foliage. Getting outside on bad weather days is always a challenge, but I highly recommend it.
