Picture of the Week

A picture a week from around town, or around the world!
Snow on Autumn Leaves

Snow on Autumn Leaves

Alright, I wanted to end my fall stream series with a very special scenario that happened this year; snow while the leaves were still pretty!  In mid-November this year we got a nice little snow, and luckily the roads didn't get bad, but the snow was definitely nice...

Up Sam’s Creek

Up Sam’s Creek

In last week's Picture of the Week I mentioned that I had been working my way up Thunderhead Prong in the Smokies.  It's funny, because as much of a map nerd as I am, I've never taken the time to explore the creek on a map, so imagine my surprise when I rounded a...

On Thunderhead Prong

Last year when I doubled-down on perfecting my stream scenes, I decided to just "work" the streams up Tremont Road in the Smokies.  Rather than bouncing all over the park to the various streams, I figured I'd be just as well off walking up one stream and seeing what I...

A Progression of Color

Alright, I have a confession to make!  I have spent a lot of time in the streams this fall, and come away with several images that I'm really pleased with... so many in fact that I've had a REALLY hard time picking which images will make it to Picture of the Week, and...

Light Bursting Forth

Light Bursting Forth

It's rare that I get two images that are so different from one another, and that I like, taken from so close to each other.  That's the story this week, however, as this week's Picture of the Week was taken maybe 30 feet away from last week's Picture of the Week, just...

You probably don't think of photography as being a "team sport", and admittedly it is a very individualistic pursuit, however there are times when it is REALLY fun to collaborate.  I try to do it often.  Put me in a stream, and I can find compositions to work with. ...

Aspen Trees and Autumn Colors

It's Fall y'all! I have to admit I have a love / hate relationship with Fall.  On the one hand I LOVE the colors of this season... but on the other, I hate the super short days and the cooling (okay, cold) temperatures! But, I'll take all of it I suppose, because the...

The Milky Way over San Fernando, Chile

The Milky Way over San Fernando, Chile

Do you ever get that feeling you've made a terrible mistake? Last week I was talking about my time in Valparaiso, Chile, and while the city has its challenges, it was gorgeous.  I seriously could have spent an entire week there, just on the back porch of the little...

Scenes from Valparaiso

Scenes from Valparaiso

Why do you want to go to the places on your bucket list? For me the reasons are quite varied.  Some places, like Easter Island for example, I had dreamed about visiting since I was a kid.  Others, like Bhutan, I'd never heard of until I started traveling, but once I...

Side Streets of Valparaiso

Side Streets of Valparaiso

I have heard for years how cool Valparaiso, Chile is... I just had to see it for myself, and it did no disappoint!  The city is known for its street art and graffiti everywhere (I don't think there is a building in the city that isn't painted up in some way) and...
