When I arrived at the Okefenokee swamp it had grown overcast and was approaching dark.  There was hardly anyone around and it was quite muggy.  Just a couple hours to explore its mystery.  And mysterious it was.  Maybe it was the ominous weather, but it truly was a bit spooky.  Perfect.  I managed to get around and walk through the brush and along the trails when I ran into this old homestead.  Nobody around.  It could have been 100 years ago.  Maybe they were off looking for alligator meat.

Yes, it’s beginning to fade, but still it is winter.  At least it is in California.  Is it where you live?  This shot is was taken over my back fence as the sky was going through its early morning color display and the grasses in the field were covered with a deep and persistent frost.  I don’t necessarily like being out in the cold, but the awesome color drew me out this morning.

We’re well into spring here in California but this shot of Mt. Baker was taken in the cold of winter with a pretty fresh breeze blowing.  At times I had to steady my tripod and wait for a bit of let-up before taking a shot.  It was the kind of day where gloves were needed.  But have you ever tried shooting photos with gloves on?  My hands just kept getting colder and colder.  This shot of 10,780 foot high Mt. Baker was taken in the lowlands in the heart of rural, farming Whatcom County, Washington just a few miles from the Canadian border.
