I’ve been working on improving my photography skills, so when I saw this week’s photo challenge, I thought it would be a perfect time to share these updates. Your replys are appreciated. Also, these photos are available for purchase here.
Both pictures were taken at Okefenokee Swamp, in Georgia.
Taken around midnight using a flashlight to highlight the remains of a tree after the 20011 swamp fire.

Where does the time go? It seems just a few days ago I was posting every day; now I’m lucky if I post once a month. I have to get better at managing my time.
I’ve been posting a few book reviews in the past couple weeks. You can read my review of the Ted Kluck biography of Robert Griffin III (RG3) at A Beach, a Book, and a Breeze. I’ve also posted a review of Nora Roberts’ Carolina Moon, at Helium.com.
The next leg of the Dirty Spokes Trail Runs is coming up in two weeks at Unicoi State Park in Helen, GA. I’m planning on a better showing this time. I’ll post the results after the race. I’ll also have a post about the park over at Georgia Adventures with Pauliana.
This week’s photo challenge is about focus. The kind where you aim your attention to one focal length or the other. Details are important. I’ve selected two of my favorite pictures for this week’s challenge. The first is of leaves at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia. I love the way the light behind the leaves is dappled. It reminds me of lying under a shade tree in the yard as a child. The second is of water rushing over the edge of the falls at Little River Canyon in Fort Payne, Alabama.
Have a fabulous week.

Confession: I didn’t read the directions when I decided to post these two pictures. “For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject.”
What I like best about WordPress challenges is that even when there are instructions, they are flexible. So, I am submitting these two for the challenge:
Red-headed woodpecker in pine tree: normal.
Red-headed Woodpecker in pine tree: sketched.
But, I also like to follow the rules, so I searched through my images and found these two:
Vertical view of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Macon, Georgia
Horizontal view of St. Joseph’s.
What are your thoughts?
