After months in the desert, it's always nice looking back at the stuff I shot in Louisiana, last summer. It was so green there. A nice change from the desert. This is a detail of just a couple of the many 300 year old Live Oak trees in front of the old Oak Alley Plantation House.

The tree trunks are covered with resurrection ferns. I remember reading about these while I was visiting Florida a few years ago. I thought the name was strange. I didn't understand why they would call them that, until we had a nice rainstorm. It hadn't rained in a couple of months, and these ferns appeared completely dead. The leaves were all curled up, brown and dead. After one good rainstorm, they just exploded back to life and were totally green and healthy looking within 24 hours. Resurrected.

Here's last nights frigid shot of the St. Louis Arch at dusk. It was about 6 degrees, with a windchill factor of about -523º! St Louis is only really, REALLY cold for a couple of days each winter, so... THAT'S when I came! I met up with a friend. Flickr's famous 'Michael B', and we found this spot. So... Thanks Michael for this shot. He taught me all of his photography secrets last night. He'll probably be mad if I share his secrets with everyone, but... Here they are.
Step #1 - Aim camera towards subject.
Step #2 - Press button on top of camera.

So, there you have it. The secret to all of Michael B's spectacular photography!

I'm finally out of the desert for a brief time. It feels SO good to see some green for a little while. I just arrived in southern Louisiana yesterday. Today it poured out most of the day as the remnants of a tropical storm hit us.

I had a number of first today.

This is the first time I have seen rain in, ummmmmmmmmmm… I can't even remember… Probably six months.

This is the first time the skylight in my bedroom has leaked in about six months. It only seems to leak when it rains.

This is the first I have really been out of the desert in about 14 months.

Today was the first day in a month that the temperature was actually below 100 degrees. YAY!!!

This is the first Spanish Moss I have seen in a year and a half. I love Spanish Moss.

I'm SO happy to be out of Texas. This past month has been brutally HOT!!!

Sunset over the Ozark Mountains, in Northern Arkansas. I stood in this spot for a half hour or so, waiting for the sunset. I was talking to another photographer there, who was doing the same. It was heavily overcast, the sky was gray, and just kept getting darker and darker. After a half hour, be both agreed, there's no way in hell we're having a sunset tonight, so we both got in out cars and left. About 2 minutes later, I caught a glimpse of this incredable sky in my rear view mirror, so I spun around and went back.
