Lake Julian, WNC Nature Center followed by Biltmore.

I’m months late in posting, so I’m going with the better late than never idea.

My friend June had checked out Lake Julian and she was game to show me what she found. Looks like a neat place especially if you happen to catch a skull rowing race. I didn’t see anyone on the water but I did hear, then spot a Piliated woodpecker. The railroad trestle is neat too. Although last time June was there they told her it was nice to walk out on it. She didn’t and was grateful when a train when over it while she was still there. Continue reading

Pot Branch Falls & a friends Rottie

 

Pot Branch Falls in Bostic 04-03-2019  13.11.34-sm.jpgI didn’t carry the tripod so I didn’t capture my typical waterfall photos of Pot Branch Falls.

When I saw this theme I thought of a kids night light, Gods night lights with the stars and the moon, and lights at night from man-made objects. Even though I actively shot for this theme (at night) I just didn’t have enough time to go to the meeting this month. I am however making some slow progress on our businesses and personal paperwork and taxes. Hubby, I hope jokingly, threatened to take my cameras away until I got it done and highly suggested I do what I say I am going to do and actually keep up with the paperwork all year long instead of having a years worth in the first quarter.
