I am not a photographer but I love to pretend that I am. I compensate from my lack of skills by taking copious amounts of pictures even for the shortest of outings. With this strategy, I’m usually able to find a few pictures that don’t disappoint. It works for me although it still pains my far more skilled at photography brother that I never take my camera off automatic mode. Maybe someday.
So, when I heard that Portland Trails was hosting a Discovery Trek | Fall Foliage Photography tour through the Western Cemetery in Portland, I was quick to sign up. I’d never explored that area of Portland and the promise of tips to help improve my photography skills was added incentive.
Unfortunately, the day of our tour, the weather was a little overcast, and not the good for pictures kind of overcast, but it was still a lovely walk and a fun area to explore. We strolled at a leisurely pace through the cemetery and there was plenty of time to work on our picture-taking skills.
As this was a photography trek, this post will focus on the pictures as we really didn’t get too much into the history of the Western Cemetery.
While we’ve hiked many of the Portland Trails, this was our first event with them. It was a lot of fun and I’m glad we signed up. I’ll be keeping an eye out for future ones.
