Down in the Valley

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

There are many things Betsy and I like about Mt. No State Park.  One of those things is the view from the back of ‘our’ cabin, which looks down into the valley below.  We had a great deal of fog during our visit this year, and I captured this image one morning as the fog in the valley was lifting.

A Beach Panorama

When it was time for Betsy and I to end our January visit to Ocean Isle Beach, we left early in the morning.  As I was loading the car, I noticed this beautiful pre-sunrise sky.  I grabbed my iPad and got this panorama image.

Icy Tree on the Mountain

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

This photo, taken from my archives, was taken on Mt. Nebo, in Arkansas in March, 2009.  There had been an ice storm during the night which left the the top of the mountain coated with ice.  I came upon this ice-encrusted tree when walking along the Rim Trail later in the day.

Pier At Sunrise

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

Betsy and I got up each morning we were at the beach in order to watch the sunrise.  I captured this photo on our last morning as we were loading up the car to head home.  The sun had not yet popped up over the horizon, but I really liked the colors in the sky.  The pier and the reflections in the sand were a nice bonus.

Worse than Snow

If you follow us on Facebook, you know that Betsy and I were without power for about 50 hours because of an ice storm that hit our area.  Our yard looks like a war zone with broken tree branches all over the ground, so it’s not pretty in our yard.  I got this picture of an ice-coated holly bush during a break in the storm.

Spruce Flat Falls in Winter

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

Several years ago Betsy and I hiked to Spruce Flat Falls in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains on a brisk February day.  There was as much ice as there was water on the falls, which made for a beautiful wintry photo.
