I have created this page specifically for video clips that I want to share. I will give each a name that describes what I was trying to capture. This one is "Morning Meadow". You may have to turn down your speakers - it picked up a lot of background noise from the highway.
This one is "Morning Mist". The little voice you hear on the video clip is Caitrin coming to see what I was doing. She couldn't understand why I was trying to "shhhhhhish" her.
Caitrin's Cool Creek
"Caitrin's Cool Creek". The still picture was taken at the end of summer 2011. The video was taken 6-7-12.
Evening Shadows Fall
"Evening Shadows Fall". Still picture taken January 2012. Video clip taken June 5, 2012 as darkness was falling. The sound of the tree frogs welcome the evening just as the song of the birds welcome the morning here in the Smoky Mountains. The evening birds are "Branch Sparrows" - they feed along the creeks in the evenings.
"Mama Hen". Just sharing a little of life on the farm. Mama Hen feeding her chicks. To all you animal lovers, the wire is not to keep the chickens in, but to keep the coyotes out!
"Appalachian Thunder and Rain" - June 14, 2012. I saw the storm coming, and wanted to capture it without getting my camera wet - so I took the screen out of the bathroom window and set my camera in the window sill. It worked!!! Hope you enjoy!
For our friends in Barcelona, Jose and Anna, - the above picture is of soft rain before it reaches the trees - you can hear it in the distance. These are from a different angle after the rain reaches where I am with the camera. Notice it is shaky because I had to hold it to keep it away from the rain! Now this is the kind of rain that makes the garden grow !
Cattle Grazing - on a clear Autumn Morning. This Mama is trying to wean the calf, but he'd rather have milk that grass!
