Favorite Photos Taken While Geocaching

I was out early this morning returning GC6JMDK to its hiding place, having removed it in early December when fires were threatening the area. Luckily that threat didn't eventuate and after substantial rain over the weekend everything looks lush and green again. Here's a couple of photos from near GZ looking down on Mullet Creek and the main northern railway that follows along its western bank.

Absolutely beautiful photos! I'm glad you were able to place your cache back. I would love to kayak on that river!

A geocacher once said after a red fox crossed his path while geocaching but didn't have time to take a photo: "Still, it proves Geocaching is more than the hunt for caches and the exercise to get to them. It more often than not, shows us nature's beauty." 

 

 

So true! Here's our photo of two bald eagles sitting in a tree watching us geocache. My cell doesn't take great photos so it's a little blurry. We stayed away from that tree so not to scare them off. The amazing thing was, two crows flew onto a tree next to them and they took off! I didn't know eagles were frightened of crows. They were huge though. Probably ravens.

Great topic! I will narrow it down the best I can. To start, living in the desert Southwest, I often come across abandoned thing; because I love to cache in the middle of nowhere.

Unnamed “Island” at high water. I named it Sundial Island. This was a very long muddy walk.

Okay. This hike today was really cool, I wanted to share here as well. This cache was at the edge of these cliffs. 

THIS is what geocaching is all about IMHO, thanks for the cache link! I'm planning a long road trip that includes 18 between Enterprise and St. George, it's now evident I need to take a detour through Gunlock and add this cache to my list :)

For kicks and giggles, I'll participate.  I usually just make photos for my own entertainment.  I don't actually do anything with them afterwords.  They just kind of exist in my photo archive and that's just about it.  Occasionally, a few find their way on cache logs or, now, to a forum post when the guilt gets to me that I'm spending time doing this and not sharing.

Beautiful photos!  The first one reminds me of a Terry Redlin painting.

I hiked up to Tinker Cliffs along the Appalachian Trail with my photography gear (ugh).  This hike is the second of three I need to do one virtual, which is to visit three tall peaks in Virginia along the Appalachian Trail (GC7B6G9).  For several photos along the ridgeline, I had to edit out a ton of flies.  They knew how to do a photobomb swarm!

I still don't say I'm a professional photographer.  I just take photos, edit them, and they go in my archives and that's about it.  I figure I'd share a few.  I actually don't know what else to do with photos after I take them.  Some people said I should offer prints of them or something.  I don't know who would buy prints, though.

Canon R5, 95mm, 1/5s, f/18, ISO 100

N 37 23.582 W 80 02.273; McAfee Knob, VA; along the Appalachian Trail

 

I hiked four miles up a mountain with my photography equipment and a tripod hanging from the backpack.  If you want to read about my experience in full, I have an epic log (eleven logs long) on the cache page as it required I make three separate hikes.  It's rare I write epic logs because they take five to ten hours to write and illustrate.

 

Critiques of my photos are always welcome.

The view after walking from the valley through the trees up the hill. There were two caches up there. 'Bush bashing' in places.1894072019_Gudgenby2smaller.thumb.jpg.6895317036619dbf2c4a7fcb31c5a1f9.jpg

 

My geo-companions on the hike to a cache. Not as thick bush as the above photograph.

All these have been in the ACT south of Canberra. Adding another; the view from where we stopped for lunch one day.
