  • Blossom Road Reclamation

    Blossom Road Reclamation

    Every so often I undertake what I like to call a “reclamation project”. These result from not doing a good job of things in the field. They start when you are looking at your image catalog in Lightroom and you say, “I wish I had…” It has been a over a year since my trip…

  • Pikeville at 85mm

    Pikeville at 85mm

    In the fall of 2022, my son entered medical school at the University of Pikeville in Pikeville, Kentucky. So I made two trips to Pikeville that fall, one to help him move from Louisville and another for his White Coat Ceremony. Pikeville is not well known, but is the county seat of Pike County, the…

  • Bright Angel of Death

    Bright Angel of Death

    Despite the fact that I lived in Arizona for 29 years, I have only been to the Grand Canyon three or four times. In my defense, it is about a six-and-a-half hour drive to get there from Tucson. In many ways, the Grand Canyon is a difficult place to photograph just because it is so…

  • Waterfalls Aplenty

    Waterfalls Aplenty

    The last part of our 2021 fall trip to the northeastern United States was spent in Pennsylvania. I have always found Pennsylvania to be a pretty, if skunk-infested, state with lots of ridges and valleys and forests. This trip was the first time that I had ever visited Ricketts Glen State Park. My planned couple-hour…

  • Fallishness in Upstate New York

    Fallishness in Upstate New York

    Having driven west from Rhode Island, the locale of last week’s post, we settled in for a few days to explore the Hudson River Valley in the area generally known as “Upstate” New York. One might feel that “Upstate” would refer to being closer to Canada than New York City, but that is not the…

  • Rainbows over Rhode Island

    Rainbows over Rhode Island

    If it hasn’t become clear by now, on this blog I try to bounce back and forth between featuring recent images and those from a few years ago. This gives me a chance to catch up with images that I should have dealt with in the past but never really did. This week’s post will…

  • Desert Boulders

    Desert Boulders

    In May of 2020 I decided to drive ninety minutes or so north from my home in Tucson to explore a boulder field in the desert that I had seen a picture of online somewhere. My wife tagged along, and I honestly don’t remember too much else about why we went; my wife and I…

  • Chatfield State Park, Extended

    Chatfield State Park, Extended

    I decided to follow up last week’s post about Chatfield State Park with another so I could share some other images of the lake and its surroundings. If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I like silhouettes and simplified color palettes. The image above certainly qualifies, and…

  • Chatfield State Park

    Chatfield State Park

    Since my wife and I work past either end of Chatfield State Park and we almost always commute together, I drive up and down the west edge of the park many times each week. The singular feature of the park is Chatfield Lake (officially Chatfield Reservoir, since it is an artificial lake). Since I have…

  • Barrio Viejo Encore

    Barrio Viejo Encore

    I know that I promised last week that this week I would move on from Barrio Viejo, but if you followed the comments on last week’s post, you know that I succumbed to Rob W’s request to publish some stragglers that didn’t make the planned three posts. I keep my weekly posts fairly concise with…
