Pine Cone

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.
