Getting Back Into The Swing of Things

without comments

I havn’t blogged in a while, and I have been quick lazy creatively.  My only excuse has been that winter lasted entirely too long, and brown twigs are not good things to take picture of.  Well the warmth of spring in upon us, and everything is in bloom.  I recently went camping with my sons on Boy Scout trip and I really had a great time getting back to the great outdoors.  Camping, hiking and just sitting by the campfire.  A friend of mine was on the trip who is a fellow blogger, his blog focuses on leadership and stretching yourself to new limits.  If you get a chance, check out Jon Stolpe and his Stretched blog at http://www.jonstolpe.com.  Jon is a prolific blogger, and encouraged me that weekend to get back to keeping my blog up to date.  So, to get back in the swing of things, enjoy this long exposure B&W photo of sunrise from that weekend.

Great Smokey Mountains

without comments

 

The mountains have been on my mind lately.  I miss the hikes, the views, and my children complaining about dragging them into the great outdoors.  This is an older photo I took a couple of years ago from atop Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the US this side of the Mississippi river.

Today’s Escape

without comments

I had to get away today after suffering through black Friday Shopping.  We went to a store with what had to be over a hundred crazy high school girls.  Myself and the other fathers kept to the side walls for our own safety.  Once I got home, I grabbed by camera back and headed to the Perkiomin Trail near my house.  I wound up going off trail and wandered the wetland around Perkionmen Creek.  I saw this tree sticking out the creek.  31 sec, f/11, ISO 100, 16mm.

Black & White Photo Challenge Day 5

without comments

Today is the final day of the B&W photo challenges for me.  It has been a lot of fun going through all my collection, but a bit of struggle to pick out the 5 that I liked enough to post.  Hopefully the one’s I picked have been worthy of the challenge.
