Chasing Rain Drops and Indian Trees

Recently, I found an Indian Tree. Last Saturday, we paddled back out to verify it, and I prevailed even though the weather did not want to cooperate. When we left the boat ramp, the sun was out and the sky was filled with white puffy clouds. A good sign, right. Well, the weather quickly changed. [...]

Hiking Through

Mountain Crossings at Neel's Gap: One of my favorite places to visit on Sunday afternoon. We drove up this day after hiking to the top of Brasstown Bald.

Sunset at the Farm

I'm not a fan of sun glare but this seemed to work the other night. I realize that many think it's cool. I get it! And there is something fun about these photos. This farm is in Martin. It's so hard to photograph because the sun is either too "hot" or setting and very bright. [...]
