A Brief October Parkway Visit

Headed out with my friend Mac to the Blue Ridge Parkway for an hour or so to try and catch the last of the fall leaves. We didn't get as extravagant of a display of colors as we have in the past (I believed they were deemed "muted") but it was quite a sight none the less. The horse was clearly quite the model as well...

Appalachian State punishes Georgia Southern 52-16

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

Winning by 36 points only displays the surface of the beat down. A closer look at the game stats show that the Mountaineer offense moved the ball 712 yards while the Mountaineer defense was able to hold the Eagles offense to a measly 171 yards. Quarterback Armanti Edwards not only posted 381 offensive yards in his less than three quarters of play, he became the second player in Division I history to pass for over 8,000 yards and rush for over 4,000 yards.

The defense has had some trouble earlier this year putting all of the pieces in place but quickly quieted criticism with this win. Cortez Gilbert lead the Mountaineer defense with nine tackles. Jabari Fletcher's two sacks and two and a half tackles for loss improved the coverage.

ASU, currently undefeated in conference play, heads to Furman University to defend their sixteen conference game winning streak Saturday at noon.

A little white color

The first snow showing of the winter season has struck the high country! While the fall leaves begun to reach their peak colors, we received a dusting of snow early Saturday morning. The temperature reached a chilling twenty seven degrees. However, it seems that this was just a brief introduction as temperatures have returned to the seasonal norms for the remainder of the week.

Paul's Triumph Tiger

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

My good friend Paul and I raced out to catch the last hour of sunshine before the rain and cold weather was due to hit on Thursday. I took photos of him with his Triumph Tiger motorcycle. Unfortunately he had a little incident during the shoot when he hit a crest in the middle of the lane (see skid mark photo) but luckily wasn't seriously injured. As Paul would say..."Good clean fun."

Fall Outtakes

These photos are a collection of outtakes from recent shoots. It appears we have pretty much skipped over fall and are headed straight for winter as high temperatures of upper 30's and snowfall are already in the forecast for this weekend. We didn't really get an overall amazing peak leaf season but as you can see from the photos we certainly had some isolated areas that were breathtaking.

* Sorry for the lull lately, look for more frequent blog updates in the near future :)
