Fun Friday: Been Drinking Again?

Even if you haven’t, today’s image may have you thinking you have endulged! While hiking Mount Evans (Colorado), I came upon this very interesting and unusual wildflower. Called Little Pink Elephants, aka Elephant Heads, I found several of these plants (called “herds”) growing along the lower elevation trails. This wildflower grows as a dense, vertical […]

Quiet Time in the Badlands

Today’s post comes from my recent trip to South Dakota’s Badlands National Park, where I traveled in early August for the Perseids meteor shower. While waiting for meteors to begin flying overhead, the Milky Way was stretched up towards the heavens, from the southern horizon: Such a beautiful sight, late in the evening, solitude all […]

A Bit Too Early

Today’s post features a single, Bighorn Sheep ram that I ran across during my recent trip to South Dakota’s Badlands NP, while photographing the Perseids meteor shower. Bighorn Sheep rams have lived in the Badlands landscape for quite a while. However, they typically occupy the higher altitude places, away from people and the ewes/lambs (who […]

Fun Friday: Baja Hillbillies?

Today’s post comes from my last trip to Baja (Mexico) for some interesting nature photo ops there.  Flying in to Cabo San Lucas, I met up with some friends as we embarked on a 10-day photo tour of the Baja Peninsula. Our first “encounter” was just outside of Cabo, where our van caught up with […]

Hot as a Firecracker!

Today’s post features a couple of landscape photographs I captured during one of my photo trips to South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. The Badlands area is very diverse, and depending on when you visit, you can experience bitterly cold winds, or a landscape with dry, parched grounds that pretty much supports only wildflowers and some […]

Dangerous Weapons!

Today’s post features another image from one of my photo trips to Alaska. While visiting Ketchikan, where bald eagles are seen everywhere, I found an adult eagle that was pretty close to where I was standing. While perusing the fine specimen, my eye was drawn to those powerful talons … very strong and very sharp […]

Ahh, Memories!

Today’s post features a couple of (previously unpublished) images from Alaska’s Inside Passage, during one of my several Alaska photo trips on a 50-foot boat in the beautiful Inside Passage. Alaska is so very unique … so much, that you can never plan on what you will see! I take that back … you can […]

This Year Goes to the Dogs!

Today’s post features one of my favorite photographic subject in the Missouri Ozarks … the beautiful Dogwood trees in bloom, in early spring! And in this year, particularly, it seems the abundance and boldness of the beautiful blooms are better than the past couple of years … dogwoods were blooming around every bend in the […]

I ran upon this as I recently hiked the woodland glade trail at Johnson’s Shut-Ins. It took a […]
