An Ethereal Visual Adventure to Georgia’s Mountains, Coasts, and Swamps.

Experience the beauty of Georgia’s landscapes and wildlife habitats through my lens and artistry.

The natural beauty of the north Georgia Mountains is a sight to behold. No matter the time of year, there is always something breathtaking to see.

Anna Ruby Falls was the perfect destination for a fall photo shoot, and I took this picture during the early autumn. The refreshing scent of autumn filled the air as she walked among the vibrant red, green, orange, and yellow leaves. 

Crunching through the leaves and breathing in the fresh crisp air does wonders for my soul!

But then how can you comapre autmn with the newness of spring?

But then how can you compare autumn with the newness of spring? Just like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, I feel transformed with every new spring season.

To me its like a rebirth, a chance to begin again.

The Georgia coast is another great place to see the wonders and beauty of God. The early morning summer sun cast a warm glow on the dock in this photo, just before mom and I set off for the mysterious Cumberland Island. 

The abundance of wildlife that we discovered was totally unexpected. We were in store for a real treat, as you will see some of the highlights taken below. 

Inland swamps and marshy coastlines greeted us all around the tiny little island. This was a car-free zone, and the only sounds were the screaching of shorebirds and the pounding of waves on the shore. To capture this photo of egrets fishing in the marsh, we walked 3 miles around the outside edges, the salty smell of the ocean air filling our lungs.

The absence of hotels and other buildings along the shore was refreshing at first, but then a bit scary. Without any visible landmarks, it was easy to miss the way back to the trail.

Still, it was fun watching the little Terns catching fish on the shore.

We saw a lot of other cool wildlife that day, including a a beach filled with Terns, wild horses, and a manatee poking his nose up in the water.

Waycross, Georgia is famously known for being the home of the vast and mysterious Okeefenokee Swamp, it’s also my mother’s birthplace and hometown. Not the swamp of course!

It’s also the home of the red-tailed hawk, lily pads, and alligators!

Have you heard about the new swamp that has formed in Georgia? It’s called the Phinizy Swamp, and it’s a man made swamp in Augusta. I was able to catch a photo of the alligator’s eerie stillness as it waited for its prey in the murky water. Beware of alligators lurking in the water – they can pop up at any time!

 

My brief ethereal tour of Georgia’s mountains, coasts, and swamps has come to a close. I hope it brought you some joy. If any photos in my collection catch your eye that you would like to have in print or canvas, just leave me a comment and I’ll see about adding it to my store!
