We got about 6-8 inches of snow over the past few days. I got out on the road again today since the sun was out and it was a good opportunity to get some shots before it melted.

"I discovered that this camera was the technical means in photography of communicating what the world looks like in a state of heightened awareness. And it’s that awareness of really looking at the everyday world with clear and focused attention that I’m interested in."

Narrows of the Harpeth is a park in Cheatham county a few miles outside of Nashville. I had read some about it and decided to check it out yesterday. It was a beautiful, cool, cloudless day and I was the only one out there, so it was very quiet. The view was awesome from the bluff. Another trail went around to a tunnel. This tunnel was cut straight through the bluff by Montgomery Bell to use water power to run an iron forge. It was and still is considered to be a great piece of engineering.

San Francisco has become one of my favorite places to visit over the years. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth. There are so many scenic places you go and get great shots.

Snow is a rare thing in this part of the country, but we have had a little over the past few days. I went out to Radnor lake today and shot about 200 pics. It was around 15 degrees and there was still a good bit of snow left. It was a lot less populated than normal, which was nice. There were some deer roaming around and I actually saw an otter on the ice chasing the geese away. It was cool to see Radnor in a totally different way.

Sometimes I get in the car and head out in no particular direction and just see what I can find to shoot. I drove out Nolensville road a couple of weeks ago and ended up at Henry Horton state park. It was a gorgeous day and there were these huge trees silhouetted against the sky. One thing I love about winter is the abstractness of the trees. It's always nice to get outside with no destination, no plan and just enjoy nature.

A few miles down the road is Radnor lake, a beautiful park in southern Nashville. It's nice to get over there and just wander around and take pictures. Except for being a little crowded sometimes and the occasional jet, it's very peaceful and relaxing and I usually end up with at least a couple of good shots.
