Grandfather, his head in the clouds, overlooks water hemlock [careful: it's poisonous] and rosebay rhododendrons that thrive on the edge of Price Lake, nestled next to reeds.  A moment of June glory in the High Country.

 I do love trees. My favorite most relaxing time is spent out in the woods with trees.  Here's a giant who has lived along Old John's River Road, one of the oldest entry points into the High Country.  This tree is as old, perhaps older, than the road has existed.

My 2020 calendar is finished.  I have given away quite a few calendars but do still have about 10 left to give away.  Let me know if you'd like one.    The January picture is of one of the many summer blooming, yellow flowers that help you feel bright and sunny on grey winter Mountain January days.  This flower was abo...

 What caught my eye?  How nature put together for me the brilliant yellow and orange of the caterpillar next to the pale lavender of the blossoms.  I wouldn't have thought of that.  FYI, I'm beginning work on the 2029 calendar.  Always love to hear from folks who would like to have one!

It's my long standing love affair with trees that drew me to take this picture.   I like to see them from all sorts of angles.  Still, the blue sky draws me back to this picture, particularly on the many grey days we've had.  It injects my psyche with happy blue and the radiant sunshine behind it. I still have a few calendars le...
The home market in the greater Boone area has never been like this before -- the smallest home inventory I've seen since I started in real estate 21 years ago.  Prices are rising, though not galloping up.  As a buyer, it can be hard to find a home.  Most of the homes we are selling are older [most older than 2008 when the recession h...

Someone asked me if this was a painting, but, not, it's a picture of reeds that grow along the banks of Trout Lake, near mp 294 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, in Cone Park.  I often photograph them as they change character, always charming, in an ever transforming tableau from Spring through Fall.
