As many of you know, I drove across the States - from California to Florida. Which of course, gave me ample opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful gifts of our Country. I have a number of prints and video I shot and have included them here on my YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muuwuFTberM&feature=plcp
We live in an awesome Country! See it!
South Rim, Grand Canyon, Arizona
"Geronimo's" Gift Shop - somewhere along I-40 - New Mexico
As much as I love the Ocean - blue skies, calm seas, clear water - there is something spine-tingling awesome about a storm. When the water is dark and gnarly - it's mesmorizing and addictive. Of course, I can be all starry-eyed when I'm standing here under cover, safe on shore (well, as safe as you can be before a hurricane).
Maybe that's a - um - strange title. But it's what popped into my mind. Yeah. This was at the Folsom Power House Dam. I love old industrial buildings. Make for some interesting lighting and strong visual elements.
Florida has spectacular wildlife and an abundance of flora - and bugs! But I'll ignore the bugs and enjoy the beauty this state has to share with any who are willing to get out of their cars and air conditioned houses and explore!
The smell of homemade biscuits, fresh eggs, and a rasher of bacon cooking in the kitchen. Coffee black and strong. Yeah - you can have all that in a city. But my soul seeks that fresh air and the sound of birds, not traffic, early in the morning. Clear skies, not smog, and at night you can see all the Milky Way. You work hard. And play hard. Eat hearty. And sleep well.
