Goodbye Christmas Tree

Over the years, I have had lots of fun shooting this Christmas Tree.  However, each year the family puts it up, the less the lights work and the branches are starting to get worn out.  I have a feeling that next year will bring a new tree.

Not only does Smith Gilbert Gardens have some gorgeous flowers, Bonsai trees, and landscaping, it also has some impressive sculptures.  This one is located near the center of the gardens.

I am so excited, it is the start of Christmas Lights season.  No, this is not from this year.  However, I can’t wait to make some memories of lights this year.  This is from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Garden Lights display a couple years ago.  I think my favorite from the gardens that time was the couple Admiring the Tree.

I took a quick trip to Ruby Falls a few months ago and could not help stopping by Point Park that overlooks Downtown Chattanooga.  I was very surprised by the lack of visitors.  We just about had the entire park to ourselves.

Kehoe House

Having someone with local knowledge is tons of fun.  Especially in a city like Savannah.  There were so many stories that I could not remember them all.  At least I got the location right for this one.  I think my guide said something about this place being haunted, but I remember that about all the places we went.

Tybee Island Lighthouse

Established as a guiding light for the budding colony of Georgia in 1732, the lighthouse on Tybee Island is one of the oldest in the United States.  It now stands 154 feet tall at the mouth of the Savannah River and still lights the way for mariners.

I took this shot after taking the 178 stairs to the top and back down.  Fortunately, we made it before they shut the lighthouse down that day due to an approaching storm.

The Jetties

One of my favorite places in Panama City Beach are the jetties along the pass at St. Andrews State Park.  It is always fun to go watch the boats coming and going.  My favorite are not the small ones, but the large transport ships.  It amazes me to see them navigate such a small area.  It is hard to believe that the water is deep enough for most of them.

Mt. Sterling (Great Smoky Mountains National Park)

This shot is from the top of the fire tower on Mount Sterling in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park looking east over North Carolina.  The day before this, I hiked just over 6 miles and gained over 4000 feet of elevation in that time, carrying all my camera gear and camping gear.  What a climb, but well worth it for views and a sunrise like this.  I almost did not get out of the hammock, as it was so cozy.  Fortunately I did.

Savannah City Hall

I took off one evening after walking around River Street and made my way through several of the parks just beyond Bay Street.  I went through Johnson Square and found this angle to shoot City Hall.  Traffic was not real heavy, but timed just right that it took forever to get this shot without cars on Bull Street.
