Ansel Adams? I Wish!

If only I was one-tenth as talented as Ansel Adams... I would be ecstatic! Alas, I'll have to settle for being a mere mortal in the world of photography. Even so, this is one of my most Ansel-esc photos. It was taken on a mountaintop, near a small family cemetary. The only edits are to downsize to 800x600, darken by -5% and add 10% contrast. Other than that, this is the way the photo originally looked -- uncropped.

Mountain Stream - Simms Fork, NC

I wish you could hear the soothing sounds of this babbling brook in the mountains of western North Carolina. This photo was taken while my wife & I were on a mission trip to a little church in the Simms Fork, NC. The people were wonderful. The scenery of God's creation was awesome to behold!

Cherub statue at Brookgreen Gardens in SC

This photo was taken during a family outing to Brookgreen Gardens, near Myrtle Beach, SC. The sun was just starting to set, the mosquitoes were rampant and the kids were starting to complain. Thus, the result was a quick pic of the little cherub playing his flute.

Stop and smell the flowers...

Flowers lend themselves to photo- graphy in a way that very few other things do. They are pleasing the the eye and naturally arranged so as to make themselves even more beautiful than mere mortals could accomplish. Again, these were found along an unpaved mountain road near Simms Fork, NC.
