About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome.

The Salmon Blues

(Click on the photo for an enlarged view.)
This one is from the 2007 spawning season.  I couldn't resist harking back to better days.  This year has been frustrating.  We've had too much rain.  The streams are all swollen and running high.  The salmon, therefore, are not jumping.  In some places, they can't move at all; the force of the water is too strong.  In other places, they're just zooming along below the surface, as if on a super highway.  That's great for the salmon, but not so good for my photography.  I'll keep trying.  --EFP
