Curvature of the earth – Bonsai Rock

Posted on Updated on

Taken last weekend using my fisheye lens, Bonsai Rock in Lake Tahoe. I’ve seen many photos of Bonsai Rock, usually the best time is late afternoon and around sunset. For this photo I went out early and scrambled down the hillside to the shore and waited for the sun to crest the mountain side. I had the whole shoreline and beach to myself. Recent rains has raised the lake water levels again. I love the clarity of this lake, the blue tones and the rocks under water.

#34 – Photograph Macro/Close-up

Macro
#34 and Rosemary Blossoms

This week I pulled #34 from the Lightbox Photography Cards set. “Macro photography is a challenge all by itself with a wealth of subjects for you to choose from.” I took several photos that I thought fit the criteria of the challenge. The hardest part of this challenge? Getting close enough to the subject meant sitting or lying down in the dirt and rocks.

Lagomarsino Canyon, NV

Posted on Updated on

Been back from my Southwest trip since early March. I had so many photos that I wanted to post from that trip that it’s taken me all the way into May. Now, for some shots from other adventures on the West Coast. Towards the end of March we ventured into Nevada to look for the Lagomarsino Canyon near Virginia City. Over 2000 petroglyphs have been recorded. The site is believed to be over 10,000 years old.

Finally made it to the Bisti Wilderness in New Mexico. An area in the North Western part of the state. After finding the parking lot and hopping a few cattle fences the landscape changed dramatically after about a 3/4 of a mile.

052Came across of bunch of cairns in the forest last weekend. I suspected that this one had fallen over in the recent storm so I stacked a few rocks on top again for the next lucky traveler.
