Trees in Summer

Not much to write here. I’ll let the photos tell the story.

Finding Peace

P1040174

When I ride along narrow roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I see images that make me feel more at peace, especially when I get home and put my photographs on my computer, where I can look at what I saw, in much greater detail. Making photos is fun! And peaceful!

Waking up Sunday Morning

P1050021

For me, Sunday morning is a highlight of the week just ended, and the week about to start. As I step outside (often with my camera in hand) to express my thanks for what I’ve been given, I look around and see just how beautiful the world is. It’s all how we look at it. Sometimes it’s hard to do this, given all the hardship, anger and bad news that too often bombards our senses. No matter, I choose to remain positive that there is far more “good” out there than “bad.” Like with this Butterfly.

Photographing the Blue Ridge

I’m so blessed to be surrounded here in SW Virginia, by so much beauty to share with you through the lens of my cameras.

Country Colors

Here are two colorful pastoral scenes from our “Blue Ridge Country” which I made recently. Makes me want to relax!

Mountain Views … again

DSCF4902

I know I’ve been posting a lot of images from my most recent day-trip into the Blue Ridge Mountains of SW Virginia, and what you see here are the last of my favorites. I’ll turn to other subjects next, but each will still be in the same region … just not “on the mountain.” The last one is my “most” favorite.

A Favorite Place

Enlight1

For years, on my way “up the mountain” I have driven by this pastoral farm scene, just above 3000 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I usually stop across the road next to a Farmer’s Market, and inspect “the view” of the barn, the surrounding fields, the ridge line behind, and most importantly … the sky. It’s become one of my “favorite places” to make a photo of the region. Last week with my wife Barb riding along, about a mile from the location, I said “I bet those orange flowers will be in bloom by the roadside and that should make for a nice photo.” I was right. What I had not predicted, however, was how nice the sky would look. I felt really good when I got home and downloaded my photos from our day on the mountain, and saw that once again, my favorite place did not disappoint.

Summertime on the Blue Ridge

While I love being able to see more of the underlying topography of the Blue Ridge Mountains during the Winter and Spring months, summertime definitely brings out the green, often lush vegetation. I really like the farms I see up there. Just beautiful.

Sunday Photo Mix

I’m thankful, especially on Father’s Day, for being blessed with great kids and grandkids. I’m also thankful for God’s beauty in nature. And, for my cameras!

Summertime Destinations

P1040933

It’s that time of year when people all across the country are planning for, or are departing on well deserved vacations. We just returned from a great trip to Northwest North Carolina, where we stopped along the way to take a look at one of the top places to see, Grandfather Mountain. The day we were there the top was closed due to thunderstorms and lightning; however, having been there several times before I pretty much knew knew what there was to see. But, as we were driving out of the parking lot I saw a part of the rugged mountain that I’d missed before. Here is that scene in all its beauty.
