Sunrise over Bluebonnets

This last weekend I returned to where I get my favorite bluebonnets at sunrise and found the field had been mowed. What had been full of bluebonnets was now almost all empty. So I went with a longer lens to frame what few were there with the sunrise. I was certainly sad to see this as is such a wonderful spot.

Closed Canyon in the Big Bend Country

One from west Texas. This is an almost slot canyon in Big Bend Ranch State Park. Orange rock maybe 12 feet wide. It reminds one a lot of Utah. Great place to spend a sunny day when in Big Bend.

Checkerboard Mesa, Snow and Stars

When I was in Zion in February I went out early to the east side of the park to try and find the Milky Way. It rises in the east just before dawn then. I was out too early and it had not risen yet. However I was able to frame up Checkerboard Mesa with the night sky and grab an interesting image. The snow helped define some of the rock patterns that give its name.

Family Meeting

All is not always peace and quiet on the White Continent (and you can see in the middle of summer that it isn't always white either)! Mom and dad are having their say, but the teenagers will get a turn as well... These are Gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua).
