Ancient Path into the Unknown

 When Jennifer and I went to China our top priority was to see The Great Wall in its restored state as well as the ruins of this once great wonder. When we arrived on the unrestored section of the Wall known as Jiankou we were greeted with this view. An uncertain ancient path into the…

Blustery Winter

For many in the United States today is a blustery winter day, so I thought this was an appropriate photo. Here in Colorado it has been a fairly mild winter so far. The ski resorts have snow, but the base isn’t what it normally is. I for one hope the cold weather sticks around and that…

Taking a Break

No photo today 🙁 I am going to be taking the month of November off from the blog. November is a busy month for me at work and I am having trouble keeping up with the blog so I have decided to take a break. I hope you all understand. I will be turning on…

Spookyween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Also known as Spookyween in our home… as of yesterday… it’s the next big thing! This jack-o-latern was carved by Jennifer. We really like to carve pumpkins and you can check out and vote on the best from this year on our Facebook pages. I hope you all get lots of treats…

Let Freedom Ring

I took this image last month before watching the 4th of July fireworks at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. I was trying to capture the gorgeous Colorado sunset, but this little girl was having way too much fun splashing around and throwing mud into the lake to allow me a clear shot. In the back…

A Grand View at Grand Canyon National Park

This grand view is the Trail View Point along the South Rim Trail inside Grand Canyon National Park. Out of all the spectacular viewpoints along the South Rim, I think this is my favorite. The rock that Jennifer is perched on juts out above the canyon like few other places along the Rim. One of…

Vibrant Indian Paintbrush

It is finally summer in Colorado…well, maybe. Earlier this week we had a cold snap and it was back down into the 40’s we go. Seriously, I was wearing a sweater in late June. Global warming?… I’m just asking. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think pollution is a good thing. Alas, it is summer…

Lesser Goldfinch

The Lesser Goldfinch seems no lesser to me than any other golden finch, but alas, it is the name that man in our infinite wisdom has given to this brightly colored bird. I like his mohawk… do you think that is bed head or is he using product? 🙂 I found this stunning specimen of…

Lost at Sea

A young teenager seemingly lost at sea…. He stood there on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico for a long while watching the waves roll in upon the north Florida shore. All the while he stood resolute as if waiting for something to happen. It is nice to slow down in life and just…

Sunset on Open Water

A beautiful view of the setting sun to close out the day after a full day of exploring the tiny Caribbean island of Martinique. I’m not a huge fan of cruises because I’d much rather spend more time at the destinations engrossing myself in the culture. Fourteen hours in a place is hardly enough time…

Red Sea Anemones

I found these gorgeous cherry-looking Sea Anemones clinging to the rocks on the secluded West End Beach of Ulva Island in New Zealand.  The beach is named West End, because it is the western most beach on the island. (Those European names are so clever and original.) When I came across these sea anemones I wasn’t…
