Flood of Wildflowers
I love finding these out in a field like this...they just make you forget the world for a while.
Compare & Contrast
Every field can tell a different story. The contrast of the complimentary colors in this scene just brought a smile to my face.
These grow on the side of the road where I live, so it's not unusual for people to see me in the ditch on the side of the road from time to time.
Light against dark, it's a combination that will always make me look twice.
Sunflowers are fields full of joy.
My intent was to capture the Zinnia in the light. Getting the ant was a bonus.
To say that capturing lightning is hard is an understatement. To capture the big bolts takes a little insanity, because you have to be out in it. This was a gift...
I was waiting for the rising sun, but got a wonderful catch of these Canadian Geese heading out for my trouble.
This lake is close to my house, and foggy mornings inevitably bring a chance to see something interesting.
Another foggy morning shot, catching part of the flock taking off.
A large flock of Snow Geese at Holla Bend National Wildlife Preserve, always in a constant state of takeoff and landing.
This flight of Snow Geese was flying past my view of the moon and just begged me to capture this scene.
This patch of Henbit was beautifully illuminated just before the sun went down.
This little patch of Phlox was so lovely in the early morning light...
So many fascinating elements created this photograph. It's amazing sometimes when I get home to see what I was able to capture. I couldn't plan these if I had years.
Off in the woods in Central Tennessee, and the sun cooperated with my lens to give me this lovely sunburst.
The Road Goes On
I was driving the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Summer of 2018 and came upon this particular stretch that just spoke to the explorer in me. No matter the past, the road goes on...
One of my adventures in Virginia in the Summer of 2018, this waterfall was all mine for nearly an hour, and allowed me to climb around and photograph it from various angles. All were beautiful.
Another long exposure from my Virginia waterfall adventure. Love the beauty of all this water coming down.
This was in a bed of flowers at Roanoke College in Virginia in the Summer of 2018. He was a fascinating subject to follow.
Also at Roanoke College, and more coneflowers. This gent was perched here basking in the sun.
