Fireworks over Grand Lagoon

Today’s Photo: Fireworks over Grand Lagoon

A couple years ago I had the pleasure of being in Panama City Beach over the July 4th holidays.  I was able to catch a couple firework displays.  One at Pier Park beach and then one at the Grand Lagoon.  I was able to get a good place on the public dock at the end of Dolphin Drive.  Don’t forget to check out some of the other Fireworks I’ve captured over the years.

The Monarch

A couple years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Phoenix, Arizona.  It was a pretty cool place, but the temps were a bit hotter than I like during the day.  Now I understand the drastic temperature change from day to night in the desert.  While there, I took a little while to run around South Mountain Park, which was right across the street from the Arizona Grand Resort and found this Monarch Butterfly taking a little brake.

The Anchor Monument

Walking around Savannah at night is one of my favorite things to do.  Not only is it full of excitement (not getting mugged), but the sights are pretty cool.  This is the Anchor Monument along River Street.  It is a tribute to all the Sailors that have lost their lives.

Alabama Cotton Fields

I was driving some back roads near Montgomery and Wetumpka and ran across some rather large cotton fields just before sunset.  I spent a few minutes in awe of the combine harvesters running back and forth across the fields… and, of course, had to take a few photos too.

The Small Tree

When I was little, I loved Bonsai Trees.  I think that may have been from the Karate Kid, but then maybe not.  Anyways, This is the several hundred year old Pond Cyprus that is the central piece of the Bonsai Garden at the Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw Georgia.  While this one was the oldest, and made me feel young, I was impressed with the age of the other Bonsai.

Little Wesser Falls

I spent many of my growing years kayaking the various rivers across North Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and various other places.  One of the coldest rivers that I have ever paddled was the Nantahala River in North Carolina.  The biggest waterfall that most boaters run on the Nantahala River is Little Wesser Falls, or Nantahala Falls.  I probably spent as much time below water here as I did above water.

Garden Lights Path

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.

Under the Bridge

I found this interesting shot where the Chattahoochee River flows under Main Street in downtown Helen, Georgia.  I took this while walking around the day after hiking to Upper Desoto Falls.

The Stacked Rocks

I still haven’t figured out if this is a “thing” or if it is just kids playing in the water.  However, I frequently find rocks stacked along rivers when I go hiking.  I found this one on the trail to Indian Creek Falls.  It reminds me of a few previous places I have visited, like Middle Creek Falls.

Barfield General Store

You can find some of the most interesting things if you get off the beaten path.  I found this driving Highway 9 in Alabama.  Obviously, it has been around a long time.  Since 1893 according to the sign.  You can only imagine the history for which this building has been present.
