Stars over Amicalola

I took the family camping for a night at Amicalola Falls State Park a couple weekends ago.  They slept in tents while I tried out the new hammock that I’m using for my hike through the Great Smoky Mountains.  Well, I decided to spend a little time shooting the stars over the campsite while I waited for a meteor shower.  The hammock was too comfortable and I did not make it late enough for the meteor shower, but I did get a couple shots before crashing.

I have tried several times to grow bonsai trees.  I think they are some of the coolest plants, but they are tons of work and I can’t seem to get the hang of it.  So, when I get to see them, I understand what goes into growing them and have a huge respect for gardeners that can keep them up.  One of the coolest collection of bonsai that I have seen was at the Smith Gilbert Gardens.  They have bonsai that are decades old and even one that is centuries old.  I love that the gardeners not only grow a miniature tree, but also include other plants that mimic the scale.  I just wish I had a couple Lego people to put in this scene.
