Sullivans Island, South Carolina

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I visited Fort Moultrie in Charleston, South Carolina, on a cold and windy December morning last year.  While touring the fort, I got this picture looking over part of the fort and the town, Sullivans Island, outside the fort walls.  I really like the way the sky looks in this photo.

Daddys Creek

In early November of last year Betsy and I took a hike along Daddys Creek here in Fairfield Glade with Betsy’s son Mark and Robin.  It was a beautiful afternoon, and I was able to capture this scene of some of the remaining autumn colors and reflections in the water of the creek.

A Beautiful November Sky

In early November My Beautiful Bride and I took a hike along Daddys Creek here in the Glade with Betsy’s son Mark and Robin.  It was in the afternoon when we started our hike, and I got this picture of the moon in a beautiful blue sky at the trailhead on the bluff above the creek.

Trafalgar Square, 1993

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I came across this picture of London’s Trafalgar Square when going through some old photos recently.  The original image was taken in 1983 when we were in London visiting our daughter Kelly who had a semester in London as part of her college studies.  The church is St-Martin-in-the-Field with South Africa House (at least in 1993) in the right foreground.  This image is from a scanned slide.

Early Morning at Ocean Isle Beach


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

One of the reasons My Beautiful Bride and I keep going back to Ocean Isle Beach in December is that we can enjoy beautiful views of the sunrise (and ocean) from our room at the Islander Inn.

Upper Red Fork Falls

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I enjoy hiking in November.  The weather is usually mild, and if we are hiking to a waterfall — which we usually are — the lack of leaves on the trees gives us a better view of the waterfall.  We  hiked to Upper Red Fork Falls near Erwin, Tennessee,  a few year ago.  This is the view we had.

Thorofare Gap

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When My Beautiful Bride and I are on Skyline Drive (or the Blue Ridge Parkway) we never make quick progress since we stop at most of the overlooks we pass.  But the views of the mountains and the sky always seem to beg for some attention.  This picture was taken this past August at the Thorofare Gap Overlook on Skyline Drive in Virginia
