  • Frost Flowers

    by Reba Baskett

    I was walking my dog today and I saw these beautiful things. I had no idea what they were. I reached down and touched them only to realize they were ice! I had never seen such amazing things. It turns out they are frost flowers. They usually happen in the…

  • Cades Cove

    by Reba Baskett

    “I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.” ― John Muir This John Muir quotes pretty much sums up the…

  • When I lost my sweet 10-year-old Yorkie-Poo, Abbie, I was done with dogs. I was taking a break and not going to get another dog. After almost two months I started missing having a dog. I started casually looking at local rescues and saw so many cute dogs that needed…

    by Reba Baskett

    This last week I had to say goodbye to my sweet dog. It has been a very hard week to say the least. I decided I needed to get out and clear my head a bit so I found a waterfall I had not been too and headed out.  Ozone…

  • I really did not mean to take a break from photography but sometimes life happens. In January I found out my sweet dog had a large tumor in her lungs and was not expected to live very long. It’s now May and I can see the end drawing near. I…

  • Last weekend I finally made it to Cheekwood in Bloom. I thought this would be the year that I miss it and I almost did. The day was a bit stormy and a lot of the tulips were past their photographic prime but it was still a great day to…
