Peace, Serenity, Quiet, Calm, Tranquility. There are many words to describe the woods. For me it is my refuge, my go to place for sanity. I am fortunate to live in a place where woods are only a short distance from my home. The Great Smokey Mountains are a half days drive from where I live, but I rarely go there due to time restraints. And so I take full advantage of what local woods and State Parks are near. Seasons don't matter much to me, I enjoy them in all kinds of weather. When I'm there, I'm at peace, free from the noises and smells of civilization, and yet only minutes from it. For my photography, it has provided many opportunities. Whether black and white or color film, I am always amazed at what comes from my cameras. Small, tiny landscapes to the larger ones, a lake a stream or stand of trees, a lone flower or group of them. Nature astounds me, it always has and I'm sure always will. My cameras and some clothes I don't mind ruining are my only tools when I"m out there. On a good day, not only do I get to make some beautiful photographs, but also am privileged to encounter some wildlife. I encourage you, who have the opportunity, to take some time when possible and enjoy the woods. We may not have them for long.
