Project 365 [Day 158] Tree Swing on the Farm at Sunset

This is one of my favorite places in our backyard, and of course if you have been around this site for a while you will recognize the tree swing, but I keep finding unique ways to shoot it. I'm working on getting all the photos on my site of this swing to be searchable through…

Massive Fog Bank Settles over Our Auburn Trees :: P365 [Day 8]

Fog Bank Moving over the Trees

Every year as the seasons change this tree puts on a different face. I'm guessing I have taken 100's of photos of this one particular tree, and every shot looks different. Today we had a fog-bank cloud descend over the property making visibility a few hundred feet or so giving me this shot. The weather…

Memorial Day Flag Flying from Auburn Alabama

I am glad we still celebrate Memorial Day in this country.  Somehow it seems that as the political correctness of our culture takes over everything we end up loosing an understanding of what made this country great in the first place.  It sickens me to see stories like the one of the Iraq veteran who…

Fog on a Never End Cycle of Rain in the Southern Winter

Fog on a never end cycle of rain in the south in the winter. You can see the puddles around the tree swing, and the dreariness in the air. Somewhere Spring is coming.

Pictorial History of a Tree in Year Long Time Lapse

This is not a true time lapse as we might think about today, but, a sequence of shots, taken over time, of the same subject. We have this great tree back behind our house and I usually take photos of it as the seasons change and I have been wanting to write one single post…

Storms Arriving in Auburn as We Leave for Gulf Shores

Last weekend we tried to go camping but the rain never really let up.  Not only did it not let up, but the severe weather down in the gulf kept getting worse so we decided to give it a go this weekend.  We are or were pretty avid campers in the day and we have…

Temperature and Dew Point Converge into Fog

Did you notice the fog this morning? Fog is really cool to me.  It doesn't happen all that often but usually occurs when the relative humidity comes close to 100%, is more commonly around the 40° temp range and happens when the temperature and dew point converge within about 4° of each other.  If you…

Crazy Weather with 70 Degrees and Snow in Auburn

This has has been a crazy Saturday weather wise.  Started off with tornado and thunderstorm warnings all over the place and turned into a nice sunny and rather warm day at 70*, but tonight, there is snow expected.  I think we are well below the actual snow line if there is one but non-the-less, we…

Beautiful December Day with Valkyrie Movie :: Friday Feet

This was probably once of the nicest late December days that I can remember.  It was over 70* with partly cloudy, blue sky and I ended up working outside all day.  We ended up taking down our Christmas lights today and replacing them with our "everyday lights" which will remain up the rest of the…

The North Star and Long Exposure Star Trails

If you have been following the progress of our tree and tree swing, it now has just about no leaves on it at all, so last night I decided to take advantage of the very dark night out here and do a long exposure of the tree showing the North Star.  This shot was a…
