A little past the Peak

My second stop on the whirlwind photo tour this Saturday was Gibbs Gardens.  I was on my way to Big Canoe to shoot a wedding and this was so close, I just had to stop.  These gardens are always magnificent in the fall though, I missed the peak colors by about a week.  I had thought of going out the previous Sunday but the weather was pretty miserable and I put it off.

The colors were still fantastic but, the place was packed!  I could barely get through the visitor’s center to walk in and then had to squeeze through strolling groups to make my way into the heart of the gardens.  It was pure chance that I got this shot without people all over the place.  (There’s actually a family with at stroller in the distance if you look really close.)

I’m glad I took a few minutes to enjoy this before all the leaves are gone.

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.
