Our town does have quite a few hidden gems. Being a local you can take for granted some of our historical markers. Like this magnificent sundial located in the rose garden of Central Park. Tuesday #38 Location: Rose Garden, Central Park, Stawell Lens: 40mm F/stop: 5.6 Speed: 1/200 ISO: 250
It’s race week! I’m scared, nervous, anxious but excited all at the same time. This will be the biggest event I have ever done. A Goal is to finish B Goal is to finish under 6h30m. One thing I have learned from all the events that I have done is preparation is key. Here are […]
