Graveyard Fields


Graveyard Fields

Graveyard Fields is a popular stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a very easy, pleasant hike. I liked the way the colors in this image almost made it look like a painting.

Ant Flower


Ant Flower

These ants were just outside my front porch. In order to fill the frame without crowding the subject I opted for a 21mm extension tube attached to my 70-210 lens. I was then able to set up my tripod at a more comfortable distance for us both.

Key West Hibiscus
