Beyond Iconic Photos - Iconic Time Lapse
I recently read an online article in the Washington Post that proves my assertion that we all take iconic photos.  My definition of an iconic photo is one that is taken thousands of times by thousands of people.  These photos often look very similar, only v...

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
I should be out in the yard working today but instead I'm working through some photos I took over a month ago.  I'll get out soon, but I want to share these two photos. Both photos were taken at Anna Ruby Falls in North Georgia.  They were taken a few minut...

A Ghost Volunteer.
I
know this as Indian Pipes.  It’s also
known as Ghost Plant.  It showed up in
our flower bed this past week, which was a big surprise to me.  I’ve only seen these in the forest, and only

Clematis
I decided to experiment with a flash and reflector to light the flower from the side.  I was just about to get it when the rains came.  I'll have to try this again sometime.

We stayed at the Glacier Guides Lodge September 1 & 2 and wish we had stayed longer. It's a great place to stay and base out of for the west side of Glacier. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms were excellent, and the breakfast was top notch. I highly recommend the lodge. Didn't take advantage of any of the other services but I'm sure they are excellent as well.
