Adventures in the Highlands

Hello Everyone!

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve written on my blog. A little too long! I guess I ran out of ideas and good things to photograph. But the other day I went to Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia where wild horses roam free and beautiful wildflowers grow where they please. Grayson Highlands is one of my most favorite places to be! On this trip, my Dad and I climbed Mt. Rogers to the very top. At 5,729 feet high, Mt. Rogers is the highest mountain in Virginia. Though the 9 mile hike was tiring, I enjoyed it immensely! The pictures of the mossy trees and clover are from the wooded top of Mt. Rogers. I used vivid mode to make the colours pop, but actually, in real life the colours really did look that way. I hope that by looking through these photos you will be inspired to go to my favorite state park! It’s a beautiful place. You are surrounded by stunning mountains and nature and just to add, it looks like Middle Earth. It’s a pretty cool place to take pictures. Especially when a little wild foal comes your way and wants an ear scratch! Enjoy!

Check out this little sleepy head (above)! Amongst all of the grazing horses, this sweetie decides to sleep standing!

Featuring Fall!

Hey everyone! Yes it’s about time I have posted something! Also it’s about time that the leaves start changing. They are simply stunning this year! I can not get enough of them. Fall is a beautiful time and a very inspiring time for picture taking! So below is my own little leaf pile of photos.

“You alone are the Lord, Creator of the heavens and all the stars,
Creator of the earth and those who live on it,
Creator of the ocean and all its creatures. You are the source of life,
praised by the stars that fill the heavens.”
~ Nehemiah 9:6

Calling All Photographers!

Hello! This post is aimed more toward photographers. This is a picture of a Book that I received from my wonderful grandparents at Christmas! It is called Extraordinary Everyday Photography by Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring. This book gives very helpful ideas for my photography. It has taught me to really “think outside the box.” Extraordinary Everyday Photography is very helpful and inspirational in my photography. I would recommend this great book to a photographer or anyone to give as a gift. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa! –ME

Hello! I have a new picture post! Winter is here which means christmas and snow and other happy things are coming, but when taking pictures it’s hard finding a good subject for your photo. So in my new photos I was able to find the very last bit of color in nature that is starting to die. I have some really neat photos of a daisy that I think is the very last flower. I hope you enjoy! The pictures of the cupcakes were taken by my friend. She used my nikon coolpix. –ME
