An assorted selection of color images from our Canyon Sin Nombre loop hike in Southern Anza Borrego, in January. Yes, they’re all vertical again. I guess it was a rather vertical day? :)

Archive: Spring at Daley Ranch (3 photos) - such a wonderful time of the year in Southern California!
http://www.alex-kunz.com/2012/03/spring-daley-ranch/

A walk with Toni at Daley Ranch in Escondido. Spring really is the most beautiful and precious time of the year in Southern California. The chaparral hillsides in bloom, with the light purple/blue Ceanothus (smells heavenly!), the Oaks with their yellow…

On a recent, spontaneous visit to Broken Hill at Torrey Pines State Preserve it saddened me to see two of the smaller Torrey Pines on the hill dying. I don't know what is causing it, but with Calif...

Photos from a walk at Tachinger See on a clear winter day in early March, with bright sun and hard contrasts. Colors were rather limited anyway, so black & white was a natural choice for the treatment of these photos.

Archive: Four black & white photos from Santa Ysabel Creek at Boden Canyon. #photography

On the way home from another hike into Boden Canyon and up Orozco Ridge. Santa Ysabel Creek was flowing nicely, and at the creek crossing that also marks the entrance to Boden Canyon, it was in the even light of afternoon shade already – perfect to get…

Photos from a hike into Boden Canyon, roughly located between Escondido and Ramona. An exceptionally beautiful place, especially in Spring. Nestled between the mesa of private Rancho Guejito and Orozco Ridge, it is isolated pretty much, and the northern part is quiet and peaceful. The canyon itself is mostly in a north-south connection, and hiking …

http://www.alex-kunz.com/2009/09/cottonwood-springs-trail/

Even though at a higher elevation, it’s not exactly the greatest to go hiking in Joshua Tree National Park in September on a clear blue day. It was an interesting experience nevertheless – my first real desert hike!

In case you're wondering about all the "Archive" posts - they're not old blog-posts that I'm re-sharing. They're new blog posts, with old images that I had not on my site yet (1). I'm literally years behind building the photo archive on my website - years in which I relied on Google+, Picasa Web Albums, Flickr, etc. - a mistake. But it's getting better with each completed post & makes me happy.

The lesson is: Don't dump your photos solely into social media or photo sharing sites. Take control of your archive.

(1) I date them back so that they appear in the correct time frame on my site, and to not flood email subscriber's inboxes. ;)
