John Michael Morgan Photos
Out and About
It’s common in areas of rural America where I see how reluctant people are to discard their possessions (junk?) once they are no longer needed. When asked, many owners will respond by saying they want to keep what they have, never knowing if such might be needed later on. As a photo enthusiast this situation makes my life enjoyable, seeking such compositions.

A Cold Cardinal
By luck I had my 55-200mm lens attached when I glanced up and spotted this female Cardinal sitting on a tree limb overhead. Winter is not a good time in SW Virginia for bird photography. Thus, “luck” rules.
Telephoto Lens View
As the sun set behind me, I used my 55-200mm telephoto lens to zoom in on nearby woods to make this colorful composition.
Into the Woods
Winter in the Woods
A “dusting” of snow on the ground and an ivy- covered tree trunk made for a nice photo composition.
A tall evergreen tree backed by a dramatic sky made me realize how much beauty is around us every day, no matter the cold winter weather.
Two Views of a Winter Sunset
I was standing in our backyard when I made this photo. It’s nice not to have to travel (even if I could) to capture sunsets like this.
I moved slightly from where I was standing when I made the first photo and saw another beautiful view. It was a nice way to begin a new year.
