From Denver to Auburn for a Summer Visit

This week our family from out in Colorado came out to see us. We had my son (Bryan) and his wife (Sara), her mother (Karen), and their two previous kids (yes, our grandkids), who are 9 months (Luke) and 6 years old (William), out from Denver to visit with us. It was a short visit, but…

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…

Most Beautiful Dogwood Blooms of any Recent Spring in Auburn

OK, so this will probably be the last post of the Spring showing our Dogwood bloom or our Wisteria, but I just love the colors so today it's my Photo of the Day and my P365 :2012 photo [Day 114]. I don't know if it's all the rain we got over the winter or that I'm just…

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…

Time For Chopping and Splitting Wood :: Friday Feet

That cold-ish time of year has come again, even down here in the south. On Wednesday it was almost 80*F, and now it looks like all that warm air is gone for now. One of the things we love about our house in the winter is our Lopi wood burning stove, but it takes a…

Fall Storms Roll Through Auburn University Today :: Photos

It was a dreary cloudy day in Auburn today, but almost 80*F in the middle of November, until this really fast moving storm system sort of caught everyone saying "what just happened?" These storms have now moved east doing about the same damage as they head towards the east coast. We didn't have any damage…

Alabama Devastated by Storms This Week :: Friday Feet

This week was one that won't be forgotten any time soon in the state of Alabama, especially not in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham or Dadeville, but I think in many ways the storms took so us by surprise. At the moment there are at least 320 people dead from all the related storms and tornadoes and the…

Dogwood Blooms Covering Spring in Auburn :: Photos

Dogwoods are finally blooming over at our house, must mean we have about 2 days left of Spring before the brutal summer heat shows up. Either way the Dogwood blooms this year have been incredible all over Auburn and the surrounding area. I took these particular shots this morning while there was still a little…

Dogwood Tree in Ice Storm

Everything in Auburn is frozen and covered in ice but I think this was just so everyone could take the day off for the BCS game in Glendale.  Only a few hours left before Auburn and Oregon go at it.

Fall is Fire on the Mountain with Yellow Aspen Leaves

Ok, well maybe not here in Auburn, but right now, the Aspen groves of the Rockies are ablaze with color. After flipping back over some fall photos of the last few years I came across this one, taken at this exact time of year, but at the 11,000 foot range in the Rockies. You can't…
