The Photo Bin - January 2011

Jan 12th:  Carolina ice on holly, just off our side porch

After two years here at Mike's Gone Fishin', I've come to the realization that, as much as I like to write, it's the photos that really complete any particular post. I must admit to letting promising literary (and I use that term in the very loosest of context) ideas fall by the wayside because I don't have a good image to illustrate them. More often, though, I have a shot that I'd like to share, but no story to tell. To resolve the latter, I thought I'd start a monthly post, The Photo Bin, to trot out a select few of these orphan images, while they are still fresh.

So, here's a trio of pics taken in January. Be sure to click on each image to see them full sized. I hope you enjoy them.

Jan 19th:  Morning fog, crawling a ridge above Wilson Creek

Jan 19th:  Leaving Morganton, headed for the stream, my departure reflected on the hood

Now, for the story ideas without pics... hmmmm...

Mike lovely images! Such a beautiful place you live in. I guess anything foreign to what we're used to has the allure of being somewhat more magical than our own backyard. Thanks for sharing your images.

Rohan, You are SO right about the allure of the foreign. Your images from Down Under always fascinate me - for their content, for their extreme beauty, and for their glimpse into a place and a life that is so very different, yet so much the same, as mine. Thank you.

I think you've hit on something there. I happen to know that there is a lot of beauty in NC. Keep em coming!

Howard, CO's pretty sweet too. Can't wait to get back there again.
