Sometimes it takes new eyes to pause and see again the beauty that was always in front of you....or in this case, a new lens.  A local hiking spot, I've seen these vistas hundreds of times in my life.  This time I wanted to see what this little part of myworld would like like through the Velvet 85.  Stopping.  Seeing.  Present. 

If the creamy, glowing effects of the Velvet 85 intrigues you, you can see more of my time with this lens in these blog posts.
