Jasper and Delene Lee live in the Batesville community and are active members of the Soque River Watershed Association. Their hobby is photography and they serve as volunteers for sports photography at Piedmont College and provide technical images for textbooks. Through the camera lens they capture the engaging wildlife, the exquisite beauty of the native flora, and many points of interest found on Georgia Highway 197, including the Historic Watts Mill, home to Mark of the Potter one of our Soque River Ramble sponsors.
Jasper and Delene invite take you to a photographic experience along the historic and scenic Georgia State Highway 197 beginning in Clarkesville to its end in Rabun County.
Clarkesville artist Sarah Samsel used pressed flower petals and other plant material to create the brook trout featured on the 2016 Soque River Ramble t-shirt, website and poster. Sarah, who is known for her pressed flower artwork, cornhusk creations and window paintings, frequently can be spotted in her big floppy hat taking care of the flowers on the Clarkesville Square or in the Mauldin House garden. To learn more about Sarah’s artwork, visit her website, sarahslavendercottage.com or her Etsy shop, CornhuskCreatures.
