Eleuthera Part II

Just in time for those of you snowed in right now, here is Eleuthera Part II!  The snow is beautiful I must say, and I love to photography snowy scenes, but my heart is in the tropics!  I hope these photos can help out your imagination in making you feel just a tad bit warmer in these cold temperatures!  Here is part II of Eleuthera Island, and there will be 6 posts total!  Once again, these are located in the nature section of my website, then in the Eleuthera gallery.

Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today we celebrate the life of a great man and inspiration speaker.  His ideas and words tramsformed the minds and spirits of people everywhere in this country.  I believe we could all take his words and apply them to several aspects of our daily lives even today.  In rememberance of this great man, here are a few of his famous quotes.  I challenge everyone to take and apply these to our lives in 2011; let it inspire us to love, not hate, and be part of the change.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed
Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. "

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. "

"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Lake Wedington - Winter Fog

This big Sugar Bowl game has given me the chance to post some pictures.  ;-) Ok, so I hope I don't make any enemies but football games.... not my thing.  Foggy mornings on lakes, I'm there!  I took these a few weeks ago on a foggy morning at Lake Wedington. Such a beautiful morning, and the lake had such a beautiful glassy surface.  I really miss summertime, and my photography tends to dwindle in the winter, but sometimes I forget there are still beautiful things in nature in the winter.  You just have to look for them, and it's always in the details that I get inspired.  Here are a few, and the rest will be in the Arkansas Backroads gallery that is still pretty slim!  I need to get to work!  Click here to see the Arkansas Backroads gallery.
