RNT Memorial Daffodil 2021

This year’s photo isn’t particularly exciting as far as photos go, but it still represents a significant effort, as I planted these daffodil bulbs last fall to take the photo […]

Toccoa Falls

Toccoa Falls, Toccoa Falls College, Stephens County, Georgia At 187 feet, Toccoa Falls is the tallest free falling waterfall in Georgia. Located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College, it […]

Edisto Eclipse

This isn’t a particularly great picture, the only reason I’m posting is that I managed to capture a partial lunar eclipse as the sun rose over Edisto Island, SC. The […]

Holcomb Creek Falls MMXIII

  Another waterfall that I’ve tried on numerous occasions to photograph. A rainy weekend yielded nice soft light and high water to get a better results than I’ve ever had […]

Martin Creek Falls MMXIII

I’ve photographed this waterfall several times before, but have never been happy with the results. This time the water level and light were much better than they’ve ever been, and […]

Spring Star Flower

The Spring Star Flower (Ipheion uniflorum), one of the first flowers I see every spring. Always a happy reminder that it’s time to get back out and start shooting again.

Mill Creek Eddy

Mill Creek Eddy

About a year ago, I saw another photographer that had done a long exposure of an eddy like this with the cool swirls. Since then, I’ve been looking for just […]

Dwarf Iris

Yet another attempt to photography one of these tiny wild irises. I’m still not pleased with the background, but I definitely like this better than my last couple of attempts.

Pink Lady’s Slipper

Pink Lady's Slipper

A Pink Lady’s Slipper flower that I photographed while on a workshop in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We came across these on a hike back from another location, and […]

Wild Iris

Wild Iris

For the second time in as many weeks I found myself in the woods attempting to photograph wild irises.  I love these little flowers, but despite shooting dozens of photos […]

Panther Falls

Panther Falls

The Angel Falls trail in the Rabun Beach recreation area passes two waterfalls. Angel Falls, that I posted on Monday, is the second waterfall you’ll encounter and by far the […]

Angel Falls

Angel Falls

Angel Falls in the Rabun Beach Recreation Area in Rabun County, Georgia. Photographed as part of my Easter morning sunrise worship service. The falls are several hundred feet tall, and […]

February Daffodil

February Daffodil

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the daffodils bloom this early. It’s the first week of February and I’ve seen a bunch of flowers that don’t usually bloom until the […]

High Water at Minnehaha

This Saturday I helped lead a trip to Minnehaha Falls, in the Chattahoochee National Forest. In the morning the weather looked perfect, with nearly overcast skies, but relatively low chance […]

The Holdout

This is actually the same shot as the one from Friday, in a sense. They were both taken in the exact same spot, with the exact same subject, and completely […]

Minnehaha in Autumn

Minnehaha Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest, is one of my favorite waterfalls to photograph. Because it’s so close to my mother-in-law’s house, and only a short walk from the […]

Red, White, and Blue

Tulip magnolia (Magnolia liliiflora) flowers against a background of white star magnolia blossoms and blue sky. Shot at the Georgia State Botanical Gardens, in Athens, Georgia.

Summer Snowflakes

I was unable to find anything identifying these little flowers, and my google searches have turned up nothing. If you happen to know the name of these little guys please […]

Vines 02212010

A little bit of a break from the models. Sunday was a beautiful day, so I went out to see if I could find anything interesting to shoot. I didn’t […]

Blood Mountain Creek Cascade

Sometimes light is unpredictable. I shot this cascade because the light around the little pool was this nice warm color. I setup the composition to catch the light, but didn’t […]

Blood Mountain Creek

I had initially visited this area in hopes of photographing 2-3 waterfalls on this creek. Unfortunately, closed roads, an unexpected hike, and treacherous terrain meant I would have to come […]

Sassafras Leaves

One of the cool things about sassafras trees is that they have three different shaped leaves. So I thought it would be really cool to get a photo of one […]

Dukes Creek Falls X

I didn’t get a chance to shoot any nature photos this weekend, so I’ve digging through the archives. This is one from my trip to Dukes Creek Falls in January. […]

Carnivorous Orchid?

This orchid at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens looked like it could be carnivorous. The way the bottom petals formed a cup and held water reminded me a lot of a […]

Orchids with Leaf

This past weekend while looking for something to shoot I was running out of luck, so I went by an old standby, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I love the gardens […]

Spirit Train

The title of this photo is inspired by the Guadalcanal Diary song of the same name. When I shot this, the song got stuck in my head, and promptly returned […]

Red Day Lilies 2009

If you’ve followed for the last couple of years you will probably recognize these day lilies. I shoot them every summer when they bloom at my mother-in-law’s house.

High Shoals Falls III

Waterfalls seem like such an obvious place to use HDR, since it’s nearly impossible to correctly expose for the smooth water effect and still get the rest of the shot […]

Birds of Paradise

When I walked past these flowers I thought, hey that looks like a bird. Apparently, I wasn’t the only person to think so. These flowers are called Birds of Paradise.


Another shot of just Murphy, the loggerhead sea turtle at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Not the best shot technically, but one I like despite the flaws.

Dodd Creek Detail I

My computer crashed last night just as I was about to re-size this for posting, and rather than wait to reboot and figure out why it crashed I decided to […]

Raven Cliff Falls

I got some very encouraging feedback on last week’s photos and just wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented, or sent me messages about that series. I have […]

UGA Rosebud III

Another one from the archives. I was looking for something a little more Christmas-y, but given the near 70 degree highs in Georgia I thought something from the spring might […]

Trahlyta Falls I

This one is very similar to the shot from last Monday. I did get to shoot this weekend, but didn’t get anything to post here. I may have a couple […]

Trahlyta Falls

Trahlyta Falls on Wolf Creek. Vogel State Park, Blairsville , GA.  Trahlyta Falls is fed from Lake Trahlyta, in Vogel State Park. Check out the Wikipedia Article on the Cheorkee […]

White Flowers

One of these days I’m going to start learning the names of these flowers that I love to photograph. But then again, I rose by any other name… seems to […]

Pink Azalea

Sadly, I haven’t had much opportunity to get out and shoot lately. The rare opportunity I’ve had this past month we’ve had creativity stifling heat. I’ve been working through some […]

Red Day Lily

I just can’t get enough of this effect. I’m sure many of you will get tired of it before I do.   Submitted to Photo Friday for the September 19, […]

Bad Branch Falls II

As I was driving to my mother-in-law’s house for the Fourth of July weekend, I remembered that I had taken my filter wallet out of my camera bag and left […]

Yellow Poppy Blue Sky

This is the same yellow poppy as in this shot: from a different angle.

Bug Silhouette

This is one of those happy accidents. I have several other shots of the same pair of flowers, and this is the only frame that had the bug’s silhouette. Incidentally, […]

UGA Daisies

This week’s photos are from a shoot I did with my photography group at the Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Univiersity of Georgia.

I've Got to Be Me

The focus is off on the red tulip. Normally I wouldn’t show this one, but it was the only composition that came out exactly as I envisioned it. I have […]


Minnehaha is only a few miles down the road from Crow Creek, so while I was out on Saturday, I also stopped by here to get some more shots. The […]

Crow Creek Falls

My wife and son were out of town this weekend with my in-laws, so I had the weekend to myself. With rain and clouds in the forecast I decided to […]

Happy Thursday

My wife bought me some flowers this past Thursday, and wished me Happy Thursday! Today, I came home and with the change to daylight savings time, there was still some […]

Minnehaha Trickle

I finally got a chance to get out and shoot. I only had a couple of hours, so I returned to one of my favorite waterfalls. As you can see, […]

Surreal Colors

This is an orchid, from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I really loved the colors of these flowers. You can expect a variety of shots from the orchid house over the […]


Happy Father\’s Day to me. As part of my first Father\’s Day Present, my wife and son took me to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and let me wander around as […]

Me in honey

Yet another shot of the inside of a flower. Getting this close, this often, I\’m beginning to feel like a bee, collecting some sweet nectar to make honey.

Tiger Lily

I don\’t normally do this, but I\’m dedicating this shot to my sister Melissa. For one of her dance recitals once, when we were quite young, she danced the part […]

5 O\'clock Shadow

The road to my mother-in-law\’s house is adorned with thousands of these little guys. I took a bunch of photos, but will only post a few of them.

Devil\'s Pulpit

The rock in the foreground is called Devil\’s Pulpit. The Waterfall is the one in this shot, and the bridge is the same one in shots 116 and 117.

Moon Jellies

I took another trip to the Georgia Aquarium this weekend. My wife had a friend in town, which meant that I had a little more freedom to linger some of […]

Red and Yellow

What you\’re looking at is my first attempt at an abstract photo. You can probably tell that it\’s an extreme closeup of a flower, and that\’s all I was going […]


I can’t believe it’s been nearly three months since I posted anything. Ah well, now that the brown season appears to be reaching its end I will make more of […]

Anna Ruby Falls Revisited

More waterfalls. This is Anna Ruby Falls in The Chattahoochee National Forest in North Georgia. It is about ¼ mile up the creek from my Smith Creek shot and taken […]

Jelly Fish

Another trip to the Georgia Aquarium. The jellyfish display in the Tropical Diver exhibit is breathtaking. This shot really doesn\’t do justice to the display.

Smith Creek

This is the best shot of the day from my trip to see North Georgia this past weekend. Smith Creek is formed at the base of Anna Ruby Falls where […]

Autumn Mountain

I got out this weekend to shoot some of North Georgia\’s spectacular autumn colors. Even though the the colors were past their peak, they were still incredible. This was one […]

Amicalola Falls

Yep, another photo of a waterfall, but at lease this one has flowers in it. The same flowers as the last post, that I cannot identify by name. They grow […]

Three Yellow Flowers

Forgive me, as much as I love taking pictures of flowers, and looking at them in general, I rarely learn the names of these flowers. A rose by any other […]

Dry Falls North Carolina

I found out why this is called Dry Falls. While shooting this particular waterfall, in North Carolina, it started raining hard. I had walked from the car without a rain […]

Solo Lily

I posted a photo similar to this last year. That one was made at a Day Lily Farm in North Georgia. My mother-in-law bought some of the lilies last year, […]


The Legend of the Dogwood In Jesus time, the dogwood grew To a stately size and a lovely hue. \’Twas strong & firm it\’s branches interwoven For the cross of […]

All Wet

There is a story behind the title of this photo. While squating to find a better shot, I slipped and fell into creek. I skinned my elbows and ended up […]

Funky Flower

I really don’t know if this is a flower or not. It’s one of the many cool things growing at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Sea Dragon

Beluga Whales weren’t the only cool things at the Georgia Aquarium that day. This is a sea dragon. Similar to a sea horse but more fancy.


A beluga whale at the Georgia Aquarium. This guy seemed to really enjoy having his picture taken. He kept pressing his head against the glass while I was shooting.

Red Daylily

For my wife’s birthday we spent the weekend at my in-law’s place in the mountains of North Georgia. There is a lady near there who grows day lillies. While the […]

Joke at UGA

Apparently the grounds keepers at UGA aren\’t exactly Bulldog fans, or if they are, they haven\’t found a way to incorporate Red and Black into the flower scheme. This was […]

Blooming Tree

Damn my inattention to detail like the names and varieties of trees and flowers. If I paid attention to these sorts of things my photos might have better names.

Minnehaha Falls

This is Minnehaha Falls, in North East Georgia. The waterfall makes you laugh when you say its name. If only just a little bit. I\’m very proud of the fact […]

Leaves and Rapids

I got in a lot of people\’s way to get this picture. I also had to climb some boulders and rock hop across part of the creek to get to […]
