A few weeks ago, I went on a photo walk in Tradition, FL with other photographers in the Port Saint Lucie area. I captured this little beauty by happenstance. I thought the yellow flowers popped next to the greenery so I started snapping away, and when I looked at the digital display on my camera, I happened to see not only beautiful yellow flowers, but also a gorgeous butterfly in hiding. It was camouflaged so well by it’s surroundings that I almost missed it. It wasn’t until my camera zoomed in with it’s telephoto lens that I was able to see a clearer picture. It’s a lot like life. Our vision or thoughts can often become clouded by the hustle and bustle going on around us that we often miss what’s right in front of us. We need to change our perspective. Take a timeout and reflect on God’s goodness. You might just find a butterfly in hiding in the process.

A couple weeks ago Bill and I took a few photography buffs on a Spring photo shoot to Mountain Lake, VA. It is about an hour from where we live in WV, and it just so happens to be the location where my favorite movie of ALL time was filmed. Dirty Dancing!

Curvy mountain roads on our way to Mountain Lake.

Covered bridges are so rustic. Makes me think of Little House on the Prairie.

Not so lake-like Mountain Lake.

Practicing some artsy shots.
