Storm over Lake Powell
Wahweap Overlook, Page, Arizona

My first visit to Lake Powell was memorable as I arrived there with an impending storm on the horizon. I didn't realise how quickly the storm was approaching, or how strong the winds would be. I had difficulty making my way back to the car. Learnt later that the wind speed was ove 60 MPH!

Re-shares, comments and +1s are appreciated

What Memories are Lurking Here?

My dear friend +Bill Wood just reminded me today of why I love old abandoned farm houses.  I wonder what was and might have been.

Photographer, Writer, G+ Advocate!!
Introduction
I'm a photographer, learning, teaching, and documenting the world around me.  My favorite subjects are landscapes, birds, wildlife, people and pets.  I especially like taking photographs of figure skaters.  I like to learn from other photographers and share photographs.
 
I love cats and helping animal shelters.
 
I'm in tune with older music from the late 50s and early 60s and have always enjoyed Dick Dale, Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, surf music, and early rock & roll.
