Spanish moss and sweetgum near Eufaula Alabama. I did a lot of searching for a good photo of spanish moss on places like Lake Jordan and the Chattahoochee River. It was only when I explored up Cowikee Creek off the Chattahoochee that I found this composition that I thought was worthy of my book, The Natural Beauty of Alabama.

Skyline Arch at the aptly named Arches National Park one of the "Big 5" of the magnificent National Parks in Utah, USA. I found this composition with the tree mimicking the background rock formation. The trail provides a decent leading line and the branch a touch of foreground interest. Comment and let me know what you think!
No, this isn’t my first attempt at rendering water in 3ds Max. This is Maniitsoq at midnight from the frosty deck of our Targa. This is a tranquil remoteness rarely enjoyed in our busy day-to-day. This is a place worth protecting.

Life isn't meant to be lived perfectly...but merely LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.
In the past I felt very guilty about going out and shooting without Serena, for landscape photography is her passion also. But now she is working on her Master's in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and she says, "go"! At least now I feel somewhat less guilty by going out & shooting so that the house will be quiet for her to study. When I have good cell reception I'll do a video call and share with her what I'm seeing. This is also a good way for me to scout out places for us both to go when she has a break in her studies.
