I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV. Unfortunately the slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

Knoxville, Tennessee













Had a great time visiting with friends in Knoxville, Tennessee for Nick's 40th birthday party. I probably drank a little too much Tennessee Whiskey, but when in Rome right? =) It is a beautiful part of the country if you have never visited. This first shot was taken from the van as we went down the interstate. Shooting at 70 miles an hour isn't the best of circumstances, but I wanted a shot of the gorgeous view. I guess these are the Appalachian Mountains and probably part of the Great Smoky Mountain range.

We also visited World's Fair Park in downtown Knoxville. This is the Sunsphere:






























The park also features the East Tennessee Veteran's Memorial:






























And one more of the rolling hills:

Wow, Regina, your "drive-by" shot of the hills/mountains is fabulous. I love the layered blues--it's one of my favorites. Looks like you had a great trip. That sunsphere is really neat!
