November Vacation in the Mountains - Post 1 of ?

This post begins a series of photos taken earlier this month while on vacation with Trudy in northeastern Georgia and southwestern North Carolina. Our base was a small cabin (Turnstone Log Cabin Rentals) on Betty Creek near Dillard, GA.

Although the peak of the fall color probably occurred last month, isolated trees like the one below were glorious. I took this photo early one morning before we headed out for the Raven Cliff Falls Trail (to be featured in a post tomorrow).

(Optionally, click on the photo for a larger view.)
The tree is adjacent to the Smith House in Dahlonega, GA where we spent the first night.

Gulf Sunrise

I haven't updated this blog in over a month for a variety of reasons, including home repairs, work intruding into play and a week-long vacation in the mountains of northern Georgia. Fortunately, I haven't given up on my day job. So ... after a renewal/recharge period away from the camera, my interest and enthusiasm is flowing again.

A Mashes Sands sunrise like the one below in early October makes me smile and mmmmm.
