Morning Meadow Bouquet – Etsy Print
A meadow full of flowers, just as the rising sun hits, is a great place to be with a camera! I had to get down low (and a bit wet with dew) to capture this photo of backlit flowers and grasses, and the mix of focus gives a bit of depth to the scene.

Great Smokies Creek – Etsy Print
The peacefulness of a Great Smoky Mountain stream like this one is tough to match. This particular stretch of water was located in the Cataloochee Valley region of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Hint of Purple
I love finding flowers to photograph, especially while out on a hike.
I am not the biggest fan of spiders, but they are definitely interesting little creatures. I love coming upon intricate webs during my outdoor travels, and on this particular morning a couple years ago, I stumbled upon a big meadow full of dewdrop-lined webs that were lit up by the rising sun.
I hope this spider was able to catch a poor little fly or other insect for breakfast…
Baby On the Way
Old toy letter blocks are great. Old toy letter blocks arranged in words are even better. But the best is when you are walking through a huge antique festival and you happen to spot old toy letter blocks arranged in words that spell out a message that you would like to share with family, friends, and anyone else that might care to listen…
And would you believe it, that is exactly what happened to Heather and I when we came across this handful of blocks in a little toy wagon!
So in case it isn’t obvious, Heather and I are excitedly expecting our first child next year! I say excitedly expecting, but I also mean anxiously and nervously expecting… Heather is thankfully doing well overall, and we are really looking forward to taking this huge leap into parenthood.
Today also marks the 4th anniversary of Daily Photographs! It’s hard to believe I have been posting these photos for this long, but it has really been enjoyable and I always appreciate hearing the great feedback. In terms of stats (aren’t stats fun??), the site is quickly approaching 70,000 visits, more than 1,250 comments have been left, and 175 people are signed up to receive my Daily Photographs (scroll down to the bottom of the page to check out the e-mail signup!). This past year had a few long-term delays that resulted from becoming a bit busy with moving into a new home, training for a marathon, and other fun stuff. With a ‘Baby On the Way’ in 2013, I cannot make any promises about interruptions to the frequency of daily photos, but I will certainly try my best to continue sharing photos. As always, thanks for checking out my Daily Photographs, and for a look back at the photo that started it all, click here to view Photo #1 from 11.15.2008!
Adirondacks Winding Road – Etsy Print
Scenic, winding roads out in the middle of nowhere are always a nice treat. That was definitely the case on this drive through a portion of Adirondack Park east of Lake George. The October foliage contrasted well with the mix of evergreens, and this particular location had a great atmosphere about it.

Babbling Brook in Autumn – Etsy Print
Autumn officially begins here in the northern hemisphere in only a couple days, so I thought I would post this autumn scene to get everyone in the mood. Taken on a hike in Stokes State Forest in northwestern New Jersey, this photo features the Flat Brook as it passes through a neat stretch of mixed deciduous/coniferous forest and boulders of various sizes. It was pretty peaceful sitting on a big boulder out in the middle of the brook to capture this shot, and I would definitely suggest making some plans to go on some autumn hikes!
