Summer Flower

Love how sunflowers grow in the summer. It’s something to look forward to each year. But what’s even cooler is running through the fields when they are taller than you. It makes you feel young again.

#TBT when the cherry blossom are at full bloom. I bet these exact trees are going to be looking very different in the next few weeks.


Full Moon at the US Capitol

Shot this at the US capitol building while construction is going on the dome. The moon was so bright it was it’s own light source.

This is an image I’ve had for a while but never was totally satisfied with it. I kept it in this folder on my desktop called “still working” for images I like but can’t figure out how to fix. Sometimes it’s best to take a little break and come back to it. I love how the fog is lining the tree.

As you’re reading this, I’m on my way to Zion National Park! So excited to check out Utah. My first time ever.

Not sure what this image has anything to do with Zion, but I liked it anyways :)


DC Drives

As I was taking these pictures, I was thinking to myself how fortunate I am to live in Virginia. Here’s what I mean, I can drive 20 minutes east and be in the most powerful city in the world. I can drive 1 hour west and be in one of the most amazing national parks in the country and see beautiful leaves like these.

Skyline Drive, Virginia

One of the benefits of waking up early is that there are no cars on the road. I was able to stand right in the middle of the road for at least 10 minutes without anyone to bother me.


Shenandoah National Park in the Autumn Time

Yesterday was a little unusual. I woke up earlier than my alarm clock which meant I left the house a little earlier than I expected to. I left with the intention of going to Manassas Battlefield but while I was on the road I realized I would of just waited in the parking lot for about 30 minutes before I’d see any light. So instead of waiting, I thought I’d just go straight to Shenandoah National park and check out the color on the trees.

Most of the trees are still green, a few had color, but I mostly saw fog. As I got higher in the mountain, the foggier it got. It got foggier, windier and rainy. I’ll definitely be back again later in the week to scope out the scene.

Happy Columbus day. Any plans? I think I may go out and try to find some good Columbus day sales. Over the weekend I was out taking pictures of the clouds. Whats new?
