My 5 Favorite Photos from 2021

It's my favorite post of the year! I know I say that every year, but it's TRUE (I think I maybe say that every year too. LOL).  Typically when I do these, I sit down and put the whole thing together in one go.  This year - for whatever reason - I've broken it up over several days, which has allowed more time for self-reflection.  On the whole, I'd say 2021 was a pretty good year, though it was not without its struggles, to be sure.  Maybe the correct way to say that is, the year had its struggles, but we all came out on the other side okay.  Most of those struggles are in one way or...

Rhododendron Along Jakes Creek

A few years ago I captured an image of rhododendrons blooming next to a stream and ended up absolutely loving the image (it's one of the few images of mine that adorn the walls of our house - I know, everyone is always disappointed to hear that I don't have tons of my...

Field Flowers

Have you guys seen Native Habitat Project on Instagram?  The account is run by Kyle Lybarge, and I have been super inspired by his work to use native plants in landscaping to help restore habitats, rather than continuously planting things that come from other parts of...

Beyond Spence Cabin on the Little River

If you've been hanging around Picture of the Week for a little while, you may recall the Middle Prong "fan", which has been one of my go-to spots in the Tremont area for years.  As I mentioned last time I shared a picture of it, you just never know when log jams will...

Beauty in the Ruins

This past spring while I was wandering around among the old home ruins at Elkmont, I happened to notice this little group of yellow trillium.  Trillium are among my favorite wild flowers, and I really enjoy the yellow trillium, but often find them sort of hard to...

Bluets in the Stream

For the last - I actually don't know how many years now - I've spent a TON of time up at Tremont, exploring the streams and enjoying what that area of the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer.  Last fall, however, I was really inspired while exploring around in Elkmont,...

The Prized Azalea

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope you're all enjoying a nice long weekend.  I wanted to bring things back home this week (literally) with what I hope you'll find is a fun little story.  If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me referring to a "top...

The Rhino and the Dark Horse

This week I'm wrapping up my series on Joshua Tree National Park at night, and I have a question for you - what do you see?  As my friend Mark and I were walking out, the morning after shooting the arch I shared last week, he was telling me about this other rock...

Arches Under the Desert Night Sky

Joshua Tree National Park is known for its namesake - the Yucca brevifolia, or colloquially the Joshua Tree.  In my previous visits to the desert park, I spent a good amount of time photographing the trees, however on this trip I was hoping to explore other aspects of...
