One of my favorite things about my annual fall trips to Tennessee is photographing black bears in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Sometimes I spot them at an easily photographed distance, sometimes further off. I’ve photographed them in forests, running across fields and hanging out on tree limbs. This was the first time I photographed … More Bears, Bears, Everywhere Bears!
I’m finally catching up on my blog entries. Having gotten behind, I’d been writing and scheduling posts pretty quickly- hopefully not to quickly for all of you! I can post a little more leisurely now. My most recent trip was the last week of October into November. If you’ve followed me the past few years, … More Another Fall In The Smoky Mountains
I thought for Cahlean’s last day in my neck of the woods, we’d explore a bit of Delaware. While we were all for photographing, we’d also spent a lot of time—basically whenever it was too dark to photograph– having a What Not To Wear marathon and both being thrifty and maybe slightly eccentric in our … More Trip Interrupted: Delaware
For Cahlean’s next to last day in Maryland, we planned a big day of exploring. First up, though I knew it would still be closed because of the government shut-down, was Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Even if the refuge were closed, the areas surrounding it were beautiful and we might luck out with some bird … More Trip Interrupted: Blackwater & Assateague

Our first day out and about in Maryland, our first stop, as always, was to fuel up with coffee. Lucky us, there exists in Chestertown, a magical little cafe called … More Trip Interrupted: Chestertown, Tuckahoe & Wye
After we got home, I took a few days to recover and rest. While I was doing so, Cahlean spent a lot of time working with my dogs. I’ve got photographs I’ve taken of my dogs that I’m happy with, but they are nothing like what Cahlean captures. There’s something about her work that really … More Trip Interrupted: During my down time…
Our third day of driving started normally enough. We woke up before dawn and found our way to the waterside to try and capture some color. It was not a spectacular sunrise, but the clouds were still quite pretty. We picked up coffee nearby and hit the highway. Even if we took hours of time … More Trip Interrupted: Someone Might Be Building An Arc in Pennsylvania
