Yaupon Holly

Ilex vomitoria “Saratoga Gold”

I had heard of yaupon hollies before but I’m not sure I ever saw one and knew for sure what it was.  Since the holly is so often found in Christmas decorations, I found it very interesting to see this yellow version of the iconic winter berries.

As always, nature has so much to offer and we have such narrow ideas about what things should look like.  It is amazing to experience new sights and widen my knowledge of what is right outside my own door.

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.
