I was in my front yard, looking at the sky yesterday afternoon when I noticed a dandelion. One little dandelion in the midst of my brownish green grass. As I looked around on this first day of winter, I noticed all of the leaves had fallen off of my trees and the lifeless looking grass. [...]

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about a park that is an hour and a half away. The park had wolves, otters, raptors and a planetarium. This place sounded like a great road trip for the day so I headed out in my car with a friend Saturday morning to [...]


A Work of Art

by Teresa Smith on December 8, 2014

I’m always looking at things when I’m driving. Now don’t be upset. It’s not that I’m not paying attention to my driving and I’m all over the road. I am…taking in everything I see. I notice the trees, thinking that some look more powerful and stronger than others. Some trees have character. I notice colors [...]

When you love photographing nature, it’s rough to sit inside an office working on a beautiful, sunny day knowing the weather forecasters are predicting blustery gray skies for the weekend. The past few Saturday’s have been just like that. I’ve been heading up to the mountains every time I can, to capture the beauty of [...]

Plan C

by Teresa Smith on November 3, 2014

Sometimes you have an idea or plan and things don’t work out the way you planned… but better. That happened to me this weekend. A few weeks ago I went to the mountains with hopes of capturing the beauty of fall. At the time, the leaves hadn’t really started to change, so I was excited [...]

It’s been a long, cold winter here. I think we’re finally done, but you never know. Just when you got used to the golden sunshine, the warm temps and the beautiful flowers… it snowed again. We’ve actually had two separate incidents with blooms bursting and frigid temps. I covered my cherry tree that was planted [...]


Simple Pleasures

by Teresa Smith on January 27, 2014

Today’s post is all about short and sweet. I love finding simple things that make me happy. Sunday afternoon I was driving home. I had the radio on and the sunroof open in my car. The temps were near 60 and it was partly cloudy. It’s been so bitter cold this winter, it was nice [...]

Today was such a gorgeous day.  Temps were in the 60’s, but it was sunny and that made it feel just wonderful to me. Not too hot, not too cold… just right. The weather has not been cooperating with my schedule and I questioned whether I would be able to find the time to snap [...]


Do It Anyway

by Teresa Smith on October 21, 2013

I was hoping that both Saturday and Sunday were going to be great days to be outdoors. The leaves are starting to turn and I love taking photos of nature this time of year. Saturday ended up being cloudy and cold. I stayed indoors, did some work and watched college football. Sunday was another story. [...]


Creating Memories

by Teresa Smith on August 12, 2013

I haven’t been out photographing nature lately, so I asked my brother and a friend if they wanted to hop in the car and spend some time outside Saturday. We hadn’t had lunch, so we drove down the street and we grabbed a great burger at a little restaurant nearby. My friend decided to put [...]
