2014 has been a challenging year. Which also means I learned a lot. I hope to use those lessons in what looks to be another challenging year to (at the very least) not make the same mistakes and more importantly stop letting so many things get in the way of achieving my goals. The year wasn’t all bad, of course. For one thing, my new rescue pup – Sara – is doing really well and getting her back being healthy & happy (if she ever was, I don’t actually know) has been amazing to see. ♥ her. On the whole though, I’m happily looking forward to 2015 to correct course and just plain get more stuff done. 

On another note… I’m forever grateful for G+ and all of you wonderful people that have been brought into my life thanks to your efforts here. Who knows what the social media landscape will look like as time goes on? All I know is that this place is where I have learned the most from and been inspired the most by thoughtful and giving people from all over the globe. You guys rock! And nothing will ever take that away. Thank you all! See you in 2015!!

It’s been awhile since I posted a sunset photo so… here you go. This was actually along the Georgia coast looking back through an inlet. I shot quickly here because it was perhaps the buggiest place I’ve ever found, at least in the continental U.S.

Five minutes earlier (and about ten minutes later) I was getting pelted with hail and fully immersed in fog. Such is the volatility of the weather up at the top of Brasstown Bald – the highest natural point in the state of Georgia at 4,784 feet. After being told that the fog hadn’t lifted all day, I went up to the top anyway and got really lucky to get to see the amazing views from all sides. 🙂

I think this might be the last autumn photo I post for this year. Need to get out and find something new to photograph. Time for a trip somewhere interesting.

Enjoy the weekend!
