Spring Comes Again to Biltmore Estate Gardens

JayJacy Photography

Time is flying by and it will soon be spring and travel to our favorite spring places.  This year we are adding the ocean to our travel itinerary as well as our number one destination the amazing Biltmore Estate and Gardens.  This historical place is a photographer’s dream from the beautiful architecture to the landscapes with the Blue Ridge mountains as a backdrop to the Conservatory, winery, equestrian center and more. Our favorite, the “Blooms” (Festival of Flowers) each year is a must-do for floral and landscape photographers. The Biltmore is very hospitable to photographers and encourage you to photograph the grounds and gardens.  There are so many opportunities for photography, not only for the professional photographer but for all photographers and visitors. Take advantage of the beauty at Biltmore.

Love Autumnal – When The Leaves Sound

The most beautiful time of the year arrays itself in magnificent color, azure skies and bursting sun-filled days. We are traveling the Shenandoah in search of the perfect southern fall landscape. Where will it be? High or low country? Valley or mountain top? Vineyard or farm?  Lakes or forests? Would it be we have many days of breathing in this beauty, fresh air with our companions in hand to capture it all. Come travel with us . . .

MY love will come in autumn-time
When leaves go spinning to the ground
And wistful stars in heaven chime
With the leaves’ sound.

Then, we shall walk through dusty lanes
And pause beneath low-hanging boughs,
And there, while soft-hued beauty reigns
We’ll make our vows.

Let others seek in spring for sighs
When love flames forth from every seed;
But love that blooms when nature dies
Is love indeed!

Another Morning Sunrise

Happy Autumn that is here! For the love of early Autumn that we have waited for…sharing a favorite post.

A few more images from the beautiful early morning sunrise “Secret Lake” before we begin the fall foliage, winter and snow images.  The Eastern skies have been incredible this year and as the temperatures drop they become even more intense, bold and colorful.
