I am spending this week in Blacksburg, VA enjoying the cool mountain air and checking on my property here.
The weather has been great so far, a nice change from the 100+ degrees in Phoenix.
The picture above is from the Botanical Gardens at Virginia Tech which had a beautiful pond with a selection of different kinds of Water Lilies.
One of the things I like about photography here in VA apposed to PHX is that the natural light here is so much nicer. What I mean by that is that the sun in PHX is so overwhelming that it makes it very difficult at times to deal with.
Tomorrow I am heading to Roanoke.
