The Lost Geese

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008


Geese in the Valley


Geese in a Grey Sky
I saw these geese circle the campus of Western Carolina University on my way to lunch. They flew from the north, paralleling NC107 on the west side of the campus, turning at the Ramsey Center, and flew back north along the east side of the campus.

When I worked in Maggie Valley, I saw the same sort of thing a lot…a formation of geese would fly by and wheel around and go back the way they came, sometimes repeating the path two or three times.

I wonder if they are lost, or just cruising?

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 30, 2008

WCU was invaded by Ron Paul Supporters, and I was there to record the event, in video and photos.

And finally, I made a music video, capturing the essence of the event:

Thank Me!

WCU Cheerleaders

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 30, 2007


WCU had their Homecoming Parade last week (maybe the week before) and I got caught in the aftermath…not knowing to avoid downtown Sylva that evening. This is the one shot that is worth displaying.

VIDEO: Afternoon Thunderstorm at WCU

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 24, 2007

There was a good thunderstorm that came through the campus of Western Carolina University this afternoon, and since I could never catch the frequent lightning with my still camera, I switched to plan B and went video and caught some good strikes, and a little pea-sized hail.

Update** See some of my photos at my photoblog.
