Full Buck Moon…

Over the weekend we had a Full Moon….here in Georgia it is sometimes called a Buck Moon because the buds of little bucks push through during this month and is covered with velvety fur.

A great part of my job is leading Full Moon hikes….and we had over 50 people this time…we take a 3/4 mile hike into the woods and then we pass through a stand of pine trees that led down toward a clay beach….from that little beach we get to watch the moon rise over Lake Hartwell.

Below are a few pictures I took of that experience….

A dear friend who is a wildlife rehabilitator brought by a few animals that she has been working with…opposums are really wonderful critters….although mainly misunderstood and disliked here in Georgia….but I love them all the same….even caught one smiling at me…

Georgia Clouds….

Hi Everyone!

Went to California last week and did a quick tour of the southern part of that state…will share some of those pictures and a few of our adventures in up coming post….but for now wanted to share these black and white pictures of Georgia clouds….every summer we have a few tremendous storms roll through and with these storms come some beautiful cloud formations.

When taking these photos I was experimenting with a new filter….I knew the California sun would be super bright and we would probably be in most places at mid-day…and as you know mid-day is not the best light for taking picutes….so I wanted to be sure I understood this polarizing filter before I went out west…

Below are a few pictures I got at mid-day of Georgia’s clouds….
