My first stop near Jackson was to the Ross Barnett Reservoir. I pulled off into a big parking lot near a small pier off of Spillway Rd. on the Rankin County side and spotted this tree next to the water. I love lonely trees! They make for great photos and with the Reservoir as the backdrop, it made it that much better. It was really cloudy and rainy the whole time I was there, but the cloudy skies added to the drama of many of the shots that I took. You just have to work with what you got sometimes.
