Carla Blanton

Carla, a nurse practitioner, photographed nature over many years. She loved the art enough to change and move into the digital age. The endless challenges of capturing waterfalls in the mountains of northern Georgia and the Carolinas particularly moved her. She exhibited photos at the Arnette Howell Turner Center of the Arts in Valdosta, Georgia, and was especially proud to have come across and photographed the rare Shoals spider-lily, whose flower lasts only a single day, while in bloom by the Withacoochee River. She is greatly missed.
