Here on Roan Mountain the rhododendron look over the blue ridges in the distance. This past weekend was the 65th Roan Mountain Rhododendron Festival. The weather was tough for those of us that came out for the celebration. Our first trip to the top was in heavy clouds and light rain. A second drive back up the mountain several hours later brought up an exciting adventure. The temp. was near 58 and with clear skies the visibility was really good. The storms had passed leaving us a real treat. It was really something to see.
This is my near daily photography web log. I got interested in photography in high school and have been taking shots ever since. I am still developing techniques and honing my eye. I tend to gravitate toward macro shots, small subjects and low perspective. Have fun digging through the blog and looking at old posts. You will see that I have worked through different processing, framing and display techniques along the way. It's all in an effort to learn something new. All of these photos were taken with minimal equipment and consumer level cameras. You can do any of this with your camera too. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment or ask a question. Let's learn this stuff together.
