"new"

it's been quite a while since i've posted an entry...for different reasons, but a big part of it is this time of year is so bleak and it's hard to find something to shoot...but, i'm baaack.....and just in time for a new Photo Hunt  ...val of  There is a Season  is hosting the photo hunt once again and the  subject this week is:  "New"

appropriate as we are beginning a new year.  the first day of this new year was spent making a short trek to see a new place for hubby and me...anna ruby falls in unicoi georgia state park.  they were beautiful....

                   

                   

i had thought there might not be much of a falls due to georgia's severe  drought this summer, but the two creeks, curtis and york, were alive and well and successfully flowing, forming the impressive anna ruby falls.  the falls merged forming smith creek that flowed on down the mountain of unicoi park. what a beautiful day!

                  

                  

                         HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!  :)

Do I know you?  I seem to remember....a vague recollection...  oh yes!!  you used to write in a journal and show up pretty pictures!    
You have outdone yourself.    These pix make me just want to go there (and I probably will!)   All are beautiful, but the first one especially is breathtaking.
