Moon Sliver

I can't help myself. I have to post another gorgeous moon photo. I love the moon. This week it was a bit of a challenge to photograph, because it was under the horizon most of the time, both daylight and early evening hours.

Little Zig Zag River

I love the short walk up the Little Zig Zag River. It is only about a half mile until you reach the falls, which I posted about yesterday. The walk is often totally secluded, and the smells and sounds of the small river winding through the thick green forest are so peaceful.

Impressive Water Flow


We did a short hike up Little Zig Zag River to Zig Zag Falls and were impressed by the intense water flow. I have no idea why there was so much water, since it is now very late summer. I took this shot a few years ago in August, and that amount of water flow is much more common!

I didn't notice until I got home and uploaded the photos from the hike onto my computer that the leaves were changing at the top of the falls, where the sun hits the maple leaves on a sunny day. Sigh. Autumn is coming so soon.

A Change In Weather

The weather took a turn yesterday. All week it was really warm, topping out at almost 90 on Friday and Saturday. It was only about 70 at the highest on Sunday though. With the change in temperatures comes the morning dew, which I love to photograph!

I surpassed 400 likes on Facebook, thanks to my blogging friends, fellow Facebook photographers, and those that have recently started posting to Orange You Glad It's Friday. Thanks everyone, and if you have not already done so, "Like" Hood Photography on Facebook!
