While Mike, my wonderful fiance, was off taking pictures of a really neat semi-run down old cabin, I spotted (almost stepped on) a beautiful orange mushroom. So I sat down on the cool forest floor taking pictures of it (coming soon). When I finished with the mushroom, I decided to enjoy the peacefulness of this beautiful forest setting. It was really nice there. As I relished in the calmness I noticed a pine cone. There were many around but this one caught my eye. It wanted to be photographed. So I did. This is how it turned out.
