After the Storm

Once the thunder, lightning, wind, and rain are gone, there is a calmness on the lake that lures me back outside.  Within minutes, my feet are in the water and the camera is in my hand.

I loved the larger view of this image because of the movement, color, and designs on the water, but I just had to crop the photo a bit so the raindrops floating along in the curve of this leaf were more visible.

December Rain

This photo was actually taken last December while I was at a dead stop on the interstate during an ice storm.  There were no complaints from me that day, though.  I had heat, water, snacks, my blackberry, my camera, and no pressing business.   It wasn’t a bad way to spend a few hours.

We’re expecting similar weather later this weekend.

Stay warm and dry, my friends.

It’s Coming!

As I head off to Charlottesville for a Saturday meeting, I’ll hope that you all are outside somewhere, enjoying the beauty of early fall.
