Over the next year in addition to my regular blogging I am going to be introducing some image portfolios and impressions based on my photographic travels. The first of these is going to be the Southeast. I was raised in Meridian, Mississippi and began seriously photographing while living in Tennessee. I am intimately familiar with the south so it is only natural that I start this photographic journey here.
The Southeastern US is a land of incredible contrast and such amazing variety. From the beaches and swamps of Florida to the Smoky Mounatins and the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. Swamps, ancient mountains, rolling hills, deep green pine forests, and mysterious swamps are the just a few of this regions most distinctive features . Through the years I have followed my heart to explore and photograph places I was drawn to all over the area. Some of the spots have become so special to me that I return to them over and over again year after year. It was difficult to decide which images to share since I have so many to choose from. I settled on selecting images that I felt reflected some of the varied aspects of nature in the southeast. Here is a link to a portfolio of images:
