Gorgeous Sunset at the Garrett County Fair

I attended the GarretDon't forget your sunglassest County fair last night and while watching the Tractor Pulls, we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset.   If you haven’t been to the fair, you need to stop by.  It is definitely a very cheap night.  $10 ride all night last night and free access to all the shows.  Cooter’s from Dukes of Hazard has his own band and will be performing this evening.

The flowers finally peaked at the office. They only stick around for a short amount of time before they disappear again.

You gotta love Garrett county sunsets. We aren’t always blessed with a gorgeous sky like this evening because the clouds aren’t always this photogenic.

Things are getting busy around here

It’s been a while since I have posted anything, and that’s because I have been pretty busy.  Work, Soccer and photography has all been time consuming.  My work has been juried and accepted to be shown in the Garrett County Art Gallery.  That was pretty exciting for me. I have been shooting nature for some time now, but never had the confidence that it was public worthy for resale.  With a lot of pushing from friends, I did it.  A big a thanks to Sue Arnson at The Loft Shop for the push.  She has taught me how to matte my photos and make it show ready.   And now I can’t wait to get the rest of my stuff matted.  I might even hang some of my photos on my own walls.

Some other exciting news is that I am the designated photographer for the Western Maryland area for Maryland Tourism.  Quite an honor to help promote tourism in Allegany and Garrett County.

This piece is now hanging at the Art Gallery framed and matted for $145.

Northern Garrett Basketball season in full swing

Now that soccer is over, I am now involved with the NHS Basketball program.  I am helping out both the boys and the girls program, but mostly the girls since most of them are from my soccer teams.

It’s been a tough start for the Varsity Lady Huskies.  They are still looking for their first win.  It is a new era for all involved with the loss of three very talented seniors last year as well as the coaching staff. Ron Opel took over the reigns of head coach this year and is trying to transition the girls to a new program.

JV under the supervision of Dave Monahan has had an exceptional start to the season with five straight wins.  These girls are exciting to watch as they move the ball quickly and with purpose.  It will be great to watch these girls move up through the ranks over the years.

Veterans Day at Garrett Community College

Fallen Soldier Battle Cross

Danielle at my office hung up some flyers about an event at GCC a few weeks ago that I thought would be pretty interesting.  They are participating in a Remembrance Day National Roll Call of all the veterans from the Iraq war from the last ten years.  A total of 6313 names will be read today by family, friends, vets, and local dignitaries including a retired two star General today.  There are 183 schools participating the reading of the Roll Call today across the nation.  A moment of silence will be conducted at all of the schools at 2 PM.

When I went up to Garrett College to snap off some photos to help commemorate the day, they had an opening on their roster of readers, so I will be reading 100 names today.  In case you didn’t know, I’m a veteran too.  I served for eight years and participated in Operation Desert Storm.  I was deployed to Stuttgart Germany for the first 100 hour war in Iraq back in 1991.  I have a lot of military buddies and fortunately, I still have them.  I will be honored to read the names of these 100 warriors today.  I am reading a list of the vets that perished from April 23, 2011 to June 24, 2011.  They range from Private to Lieutenant Colonel from all over the United States. If you are looking for a way to honor the fallen, stop by the college today.   Taps and 21 gun salute at 4:30.

Award winning photo for Autumn

Award winning photo from Maryland Tourism office

This photo got a little recognition from a contest that I entered on Maryland Tourism Facebook page.  I had decided a day before that I needed to improve my portfolio of Autumn shots.  A lot of the shots that I use in advertisements for my office are supplied by me.  I have tons of winter photos, but seem to always miss the prime time for the Autumn bliss.  Well, needless to say, I snapped this shot and a few others just in time.  The weather turned just before the annual Autumn Glory fest and the rain knocked most of the leaves off the trees the very next day.  One thing I have learned here in Garrett County, if you see something worthy of a shot…take it.  You will never see it again.
