Knoxville Daily Photo will post one photo per day taken from the Knoxville/Knox County, Tennessee area. Knoxville is the city of my birth, the place where I work, and the largest city near our hometown. It's a wonderful community in which to raise our family. It's really a beautiful place . . . . at least I think so.

I am not a professional photographer; I call myself a point & shoot photographer. I have had a genuine love for and interest in photography since childhood. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix S600 ~ which I love for many reasons that I won't list here. Sometimes I use my old camera which is a Nikon Coolpix 5900.

Photography is something that I enjoy immensely. My photographs & albums are treasured above all other material things I own. The memories that are captured and preserved through my camera are so precious.

I am glad that I have discovered City Daily Photo and started a photo blog. It's an honor to share my little corner of the world with those who find themselves here. Enjoy looking around my blog, and welcome to all who visit.

A breathtaking sky was painted for us on this drive home back in June.

It is a beautiful sky for sure and one of those that to me almost seems Biblical.

Ya know, with all the ridges around here, I'm always impressed with a "big sky" shot. This one is excellent!

Steve Buser said...

What a shot. I hope you slowed down to soak it all in.

Sometimes I think sunsets are God's test to see if we are "living in the moment."
