Beauty in the small things - In photography a good way to keep shooting even when you can't travel much is macro or close-up photography. I don't do much of it but I still enjoy doing it when I see something that looks particularly interesting. I bought a tray of flowers from the local garden center Saturday and found a shady spot in the backyard to shoot. A shady spot keeps the harsh sunlight off the flowers and allows for more even lighting and less over-saturation of the colors. This flower is about a half a pinky long (a technical term) and I'm amazed at the beauty in such a small thing.

Ahh, that explains it. That D800e is a great body for sure. We are well in PA! Finally back to shooting a bit again. Attending a waterfalls workshop here in PA next week or I'd probably be at Grandfather Mountain with Bill and Jack. Figured you'd probably be there too.

Foggy morning near Brenham, TX with a huisache tree amongst the bluebonnets. Huisache is pronounced like we-sache.

Road to Eureka Dunes - These dunes are in the northern section of Death Valley National Park, California and rise for more than 680 ft. (207 m)from their base. It's an extremely isolated but beautiful area of the park.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. The trees are blossoming and the "spring green" is just coming out on the trees. It's a great time to be in North Carolina.

We had to wait awhile too Jerry but glad we seem to have turned the corner. I'm ready to get back shooting.

Looking forward to seeing this kind of view before too long. This is sunset at the Cone Estate area along the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, NC.

Mono Lake in the eastern Sierras of California. This is an 18 second long-exposure using a Lee Big Stopper neutral density filter to extend the exposure time. The lake was also very choppy that day and the long exposure allows the lake to have a glassy appearance. The structures in the water are called tufas and are primarily limestone deposits left exposed by the dropping levels of lake which has no outlets.
