The view from my perch on the mountain

One of these days……..

POW…..straight to the moon!


A hand held shot with the new lens last night. I’m pretty impressed and can’t wait to see what it can do with a tripod. I might even remember that it’s in the back seat of the truck, get it out and use it one of these days!


Random shots from the cove

Just a few random shots from today


Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis or Solidago virgaurea). I used to blame my seasonal allergies on goldenrod until I discovered the allergy is actually caused by ragweed which blooms at the same time. Goldenrod’s bright yellow blooms make it more conspicuous, hence the association with the onset of hay fever. I’m still staying away from anything yellow until my head clears up. In the meantime, thank God for Loratidine!


Burd on a ladder


Two does and a fawn. Frankie shot this while I drove.


Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) also known as Red Lobelia


Sunset in Crockett’s Cove. Frankie shot this as we were heading home. I starting to think that I may be creating a monster. She’s already taken possession of my 35MM SLR as well as Laura’s old digital point and shoot. Now that she’s learning to shoot my DSLR I just might have to find a good place to hide it.
