Usually between March and October, I like to get out to Stone Mountain and take long walks as often as possible, usually early Saturday and Sunday morning. The scenery is gorgeous and ever-changing, with the Dogwoods blooming in March and April to the Yellow Daisies in September. There’s always something neat to photograph. Here’s some of what I encountered on my most-recent visits.
Getting out and taking in the scenery always clears my head and I always come back with lots of new ideas for stories, or new approaches to stories I’m already writing. I highly encourage a walk in the woods, if you need to recharge.
