black and white afternoon

These pics are from Dec. 22.  We went out snowshoeing on the south side of Big Fumee.  I got some nice pics of a pretty little creek that runs along the trail for a ways.  I decided they looked best in black and white so I converted them all for this post.

big fumee lake….again

We had a wonderful walk around big Fumee this afternoon.  43 degrees and sunny with only a slight breeze.  It’s 4.5 miles around and at the end of the trail is this fountain which flows year round with fresh spring water.  As you can see from the ice build-up, it’s been a little chilly here lately.   It was great to get out and enjoy the sun after nearly a week of rain and dreary weather.

Camera Fun

We took a walk Monday evening and just after sunset we were by Chapin Pit and it was a little too dark to get any good pics, so I decided to have a little fun with the camera.  I set my ISO at 100 and focused on the lights across the pit and moved the camera while the shutter was open.  I also turned my flash off.  I took these with my little point and shoot as the walk was unplanned and I didn’t have my Rebel with me.  The first pic is what I was shooting.  The rest were just for fun.

The above pic is my favorite.

indiana mine pond

These pictures were taken yesterday at the Indiana Mine Pond, which is along the trail on the way to Big Fumee Lake.  It was very still and the pond was like a mirror.

 

I would love to know how deep this old mine is.  There are many places where you can see sharp drop-offs and holes  like this.

patience

Let nothing disturb thee;  let nothing dismay thee;  all things pass;  God never changes.  Patience attains all that it strives for.  He who has God finds he lacks nothing.  God alone suffices.

~St. Teresa of Avila~
