Frozen Surprise

This weekend one of my roommates and I took my dog out for a hike at Radnor Lake. I always bring my camera though I was not expecting to shoot anything this trip. It’s winter, everything is dead, even though we had some sunshine it was a bleak day. It had been in the...

It’s been crazy cold in Nashville recently. So cold that waterfalls were starting to freeze. I know people up north are used to the cold but in the South, it just does not get that cold. I don’t even own a heavy jacket and the warmest pants I have are...

Giving Up

It’s August in Tennessee which usually means unbearable heat and humidity but Mother Nature has seen fit to give us a break for a bit. Today was great weather so I decided to head down to Chattanooga for a little bit of exploring. It was not great photo weather...
