First Snow

First Snow at White Sulphur Springs Heritage House

This past weekend, my family went to a weekend getaway at White Sulphur Springs, Eastern conference center of Officers' Christian Fellowship.  While there, we received around 10 inches of snow.  Snow of any amounted is unexpected for the end of October, but great fun for photography and enjoying the time away.

OCF just opened the Heritage House conference center this past spring, so not only was it the first snow of the year, it was the first snow to fall on the newly opened center.

2011 Nature Visions Expo

I learned yesterday that three of the images I submitted to the 2011 Nature Visions Expo were juried into the Expo.  The three images are posted below, although a couple of them have been featured in previous post.  You can see my images that were accepted into the 2010 Nature Visions Expo in this post.

The Nature Visions Photo Expo will be held the 11 - 13 November at the Hylton Performing Arts Center located on the Prince William County Campus of George Mason University.  They will have several speakers, including a keynote address by Art Wolfe.
