  8. Some of these shots made me think of the Ents in lord of the rings, like the trees where right old men. Totally separate thought and gator came to mind!!!

  9. Girl, you do know how to make me smile. The fog makes everything look kind of lost and lonely...and you know how I like lonely places.

  10. Only had time to play with the one shot. I'll give it a try later. This place was so beautiful. Not that far from Thomasville. Just outside of Hahira. I would love to go back one day when I have more time.

  11. This is the original of the one I did in mono. The color, to me, seems to take away from it. Anyway...Off to work here soon. Y'all have a good one...

  17. This is my fav of the set... I agree with mavisgrind (above) he contrast of the touch of color makes for very interesting composition...

  18. IGNORE the Boa in this Video---just listen to the song! That's the first thing I thought of when looking at this set of your "swampy" photos! (So Cool...) You remember this one, Linda?

  19. Beautiful pictures Linda. What's all that stuff hanging from the trees? It looks very spooky.

  20. Hahira, GA... "Buuuuuudddddinnnnnn, budddddinnnnn" (Ray Stevens oldie)
    Just love it cause I know a little bit about these places, lindylooh---at least have seen something really similar. Georgia is an interesting and beautifully diverse geography...from the mountains to the shore, with swamp and piedmont between...

  21. Came back to look again. I don't know much about photography but when I come back to look at shots a second time, they must be good. Linda, of all the pictures you've taken over the years, these are my very favorite.

  22. Omg! Linda may not remember that song, but I sure do! I had completely forgotten about it, and I've listened to it twice here, so far. I STILL like the darn thing!

  23. It's moss Dylan. These are cypress trees...lot's of moss covered trees in these parts.

  24. It wasn't cold at all Rach. Just a very foggy day. I had Brandy pull over when I saw it. It was so beautiful. We still had a way to go to get to Thomasville and I had been up for over 24 hours so we were only there for a few minutes. I'll go back by when I go to Thomasville again. Really loved this place. It's also a wildlife preserve.

  25. LOL Peach I had forgotten about the Ray Stevens song. He does have one about Hahira.

  26. Wow! I've seen moss before but never like that. I had a lawn once that was full of it. I put some moss killer down and there was hardly any green left when I'd got rid of it all. I had to re-seed the whole lawn it was that bad.

  27. Linda, of all the images that I have seen you post, these are undoubtedly the best - and my favourites.

    They are powerful, somehow full of emotion.

  28. Guess that settles it...these will go into the portfolio I have to create for class.
