Just out playing around with some macro photography this morning. This is a Chevy El Camino hotwheels I barrowed from my granddaughter (yes, I’ll give back). Smile

A bit of information on Dowdell’s Knob:

A President’s Place of Reflection
Near the northern end of Georgia’s 10,000 acre Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park is a place where the presence of the American President who guided the country through the Great Depression and World War II can still be felt.
Dowdell’s Knob, named for a 19th century farmer, was a favorite spot for picnicking and quiet thought for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. First attracted to the region by the nearby warm springs that he hoped might provide a cure for the paralysis he suffered as a result of a devastating bought with polio, Roosevelt fell in love with the beautiful country surrounding Pine Mountain. He built his Little White House, the only home he would ever known, nearby in 1932. That same year he was elected to the Presidency and went on to serve longer than any President in American history.
Roosevelt was a great lover of the outdoors and often drove his hand-controlled Ford car up Pine Mountain to picnic, enjoy the scenery and think in the quiet and solitude of the heights. In this manner he discovered the place that would become his favorite, Dowdell’s Knob.

I can’t help but to keep looking at the pictures I took while on my 4 state park mission.

Can’t wait to get back out there to visit a few more state parks!

Friday, Christmas eve, I set out to go exploring and get a little geocaching done but didn’t want to drive very far doing so.
I created a pocket query from geocaching.com for the area of High Falls, GA and 30 miles radius – just under 2 hours away.

Here are a few of the pictures I took while out yesterday.

This has to be one of my favorite spots when I have to go work in Panama City, FL.
I usually go to the very back of the area by the small lake and park. The trees are covered in moss and in the fall/winter, it’s makes a nice place to go sit, think and take pictures. The whole place is fill with things to photograph.
