South Chickamauga Creek – Chattanooga, TN

A beautiful day for a short nature hike along the South Chickamauga Creek.  Even saw a snake and turtle in the water.  Had I been carrying a more robust camera instead of just my iPhone…


Doe River – TN

From a recent visit to Roan Mountain State Park. There were many rhododendrons along the river. Would love to go back in June when they are blooming.

Hydrangea Leaf

he spring blooms are always so enchanting. The promise of what is to come. The renewal. The freshness.
This hydrangea did not produce any blooms last year and I’m hoping this summer will be different.


Spring Tulip

Beyond all of the overused metaphors of rebirth, spring really is a wonderful time.  The various flowers are a visual feast.  Spring gives the photographer an abundant variety of subject matter to work with.  The key is to get out there and take advantage of the opportunity.
