Last time, I shared with you my favorite images taken in the winter and spring of 2015. Today I would like to share my favorites from summer and fall.
My summer folder is always filled with more images than any other folder. This is not necessarily because it is my favorite season. The reason my summer folder is so much fuller is
because I am an elementary school teacher. One of the huge benefits of my chosen profession is the fact that I am off two months in the summers. This allows me more time to photograph.
Early each summer, I enjoy going to Roan Mountain. Early summer is one of my favorite times there because the rhododendron are blooming. On this particular day, my husband, dog, and I hiked twelve miles on and around Roan mountain. This was a scene unfolded before us shortly after sunrise.
Another location I enjoyed spending time photographing was in and around the Brevard area. I met fellow photographers and members of the Arcanum there for an extended weekend of photography. While there, we visited one of my favorite waterfalls, Eastatoe Falls. This waterfall is located on private property. I have photographed this waterfall many times before. On this trip, I used a longer lens because I wanted to capture a more intimate look at the falls than I had on previous trips there.
This summer was the last summer with my son at home before he left for his first year at college. We decided to take a special last family vacation before sending him off. The following images come from that special trip to Yellowstone and Tetons. I will write a blog post in the new year about that wonderful trip.
Fall is a busy time for me professionally, as I welcome my new students each year. Nonetheless, I will find a way to get out to photograph the spectacular changes and sights that fall brings each year. I am fortunate to live within two hours of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a wonderful location to capture great fall images. My fall favorites were taken on or near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
These are my favorites from summer and fall of 2015. Please look back at my previous entry if you missed my favorite images from winter and spring of 2015.
I am looking forward to seeing where my camera takes me in 2016. May your 2016 be filled with good health, love, and great images! Have a Happy New Year!
