Looking for a “staycation” – then stay at your computer and tour the Mississippi Delta

“I watched the Creator of this world mix a palette of colors for me and cast them across the sky above this bayou in north Warren County. And it happened so quickly that it can take your breath away! He starts out with dark blues and purples, then adds a touch of orange, then dabs on bits and pieces of yellow just before throwing a whole can of golden flakes across the water! Wow! All the while, the clouds are billowing, the warm air drifts across the grass and water, the sounds of nature compete for my attention…’Oh, Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds thy hands have made….'”

Mississippi photographers Marty Kittrell and Robert Walker “beat the heat” with photoblogs that offer a tours of the Mississippi Delta from any cool place you can place your chair.

“It was very early, about an hour before sunrise..At least down to 40 degrees (I can see you northern folks laughing now) yes us southern folks think 40 degrees is cold, heck we close the schools if it gets to 32 degrees! I was…going to the Yazoo river. There are several levees there and their water reflects the sunrise like a shiny glass…  The funny part is that these levees were less than 20 miles from my front door and I had never been there before. I’m discovering that a lot these days. All the pictures around me in my own home tome that I’ve looked over for my 41 years.

So Annnywhooo, it was about a 100 ft walk from the top of the levee to the edge of the water, and it was DARK! And in Mississippi there are critters everywhere around the water. Snakes, alligators, etc….but I cant see anything yet… Then the sun started to rise! Oh my stars…How great for God to add a touch of fog…!”
