Wishing for a reprieve from Summer

Remembering the beauty and coolness of the mountains on a hot day


OK, I know it’s just the beginning of July but Hotlanta is living up to its name this year.  I needed to look back to our trip to Colorado to remind me of how much cooler it is in the mountains and maybe the memory would make me forget about the high 90’s that we will be living in around here.

This scene shows a beautiful stream flowing crisp and clean through the wilderness of the Rocky Mountain National Park.  I posted another view of this same area with people setting up to enjoy the day fly fishing.  I don’t think I would like to live in a place where summer doesn’t arrive until August and winter is coming in September but, it is nice to envision the pleasant coolness of a mountain stream on a hot summer day.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
