Whatever Your Age – You Can Start Walking

It’s never too late to get the health benefits from a more active lifestyle.

As I’m turning to 60, I’m much more concerned about my health as before. I just read the research paper that it’s never too late to start an active lifestyle to get the health benefits.

So if you have been a couch potato, you still have a chance.

For example, older adults who stay active will reduce their risk of stroke and heart disease to a level of young people.

If you’ve been inactive, you can slowly build up your liveliness to reach suggested levels. And you’ll be improving your health anyway during that slow process.

The most prominent health benefits come to those who start from scratch. The more you move, the more you get.

If you spend all your day just sitting down, there are many opportunities throughout the day to add physical activity and exercise.

Are there benefits of getting just a little more active?

Incredibly, as little as walking 15-30 minutes a day can provide health benefits.

Benefits for all of the major diseases can be affected by being physically active and exercising – like high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol.



Tips For Hiking And Outdoor Photography: Get Better Hiking Experience

Popular family experience for summer is hiking and camping. For a safe and fun hike, it is essential to have the right gear and skills.

You need more than right gear to guarantee a safe and pleasant hiking adventure. The variety of equipment is large, so for those just getting started, it can be a bit overwhelming.

Essential Gear

There are a few necessary camping accessories that can’t be skipped or missed.

The basic camping essentials include:

1 – Tent

If you are going to overnight hike, you need a tent. The most basic one is a traditional inverted V-shaped tent that is usually for two-persons. Larger versions allow adults and children to walk around inside with relative comfort. If you are camping with children, and you need more room, look for the hexagonal tents.

When buying a tent, consider these:

  • how many people you will be housing
  • the weight if you have to pack it into your camping spot
  • how easy or difficult it is to put up and down.

2 – Sleeping bags

Sleeping bags come in different sizes, from children’s bags to extra-long, from lightweight, ultra-warm to very durable.

Usually, we look for the lightweight,


Your Laptop Needs Fresh Air – just like you!

Photographers spend hours uploading and editing photos, so they require a machine with speedy performance, a fast hard drive, and a bright display.

Photo editing software can be resource hungry for your laptop. Particularly, if you’re working with lots of raw files.

And as your laptop is a powerful photo editing tool, with all that power, there might be heat problems, especially when traveling in summer.

Laptops have become much cooler in recent years, but heat is still an operational problem.

Laptops are smaller than desktops, components are packed more tightly, the casing is ultra-small, so there’s not much room for the heat to disappear.

Cooler notebooks last longer, and too much heat can make your system crash.

If you are on a trip, and you are going to process your photos during a trip, you don’t want your notebook to crash with your new images.

Air vents, fans, and heat sinks try to cool your laptop down. Sometimes, it’s not enough. Overheating can happen if there’s some malfunction, like when a fan isn’t working correctly.

But it can also be a user’s fault if he blocks the air vents.

Here are some simple tips on how to keep your


Tips on Capturing Scenic Landscapes

Getting closer to nature is what landscape photography is all about.

A great thing in landscape photography is that the possibilities are endless on where you can go to take the picture. And it all can start with a few steps from your back door. The horizon is your limit.

Landscape photography should be fun and relaxing

Get up with the sun at dawn. The sun that is just peaking its face over the background gives you perfect light for your photo.

When the sun is going down, this is a great time for a landscape picture of peace and serenity. The sky shows it’s coloring, and you can get depth to a photo from the shadows. Shadows give your photo more of a three-dimensional feel.

When photographing landscapes, try to show the depth. Focus on elements that lead the eye. Include close objects like rocks or flowers in the frame and the distant objects.

Skills Matter Most

How to take better pictures depends on the photographer’s skills. The camera, accessories, lenses are incidental to the skills, but are also essential to possess for better pictures.

Each photographer has his/her own field of interest. While there is a variety


Tips For Nature And Outdoor Photography

As stated in my blog introduction, the top 3 things on my bucket list are: Having quality time outdoors, more travel, and learning more about photography.

Hiking is usually considered as spending quality time. People typically make hiking trips during their vacations. And often people are visiting these specific hiking places with their friends.

During the hiking trip or any other trip, there are lots of memorable moments.

Should you try to capture these moments with a camera or your smartphone? Well, that’s a big debate.

Some say that it’s better to enjoy the moment without your phone or camera, others think that its worth to document everything you see through a camera lens.

Does your hiking experience get better if you take pictures all the time? Probably not. Me, I’m, somewhere in between.

I make specific trips where I take my time photographing scenery, and then I have tours where I concentrate on hiking without a camera.

But if you are going to take photographs, then you should create a collection of good memories in the form of pictures.

Here are some tips to get that great photo collection from your outdoor trips:
