Half Dome

Off tomorrow for a photo excursion to the Redwoods.

Missing time trials, so good luck Ryder and all Hox.

Half Dome taken a couple of weeks ago when the clouds finally cleared and the sun finally came out.

Yosemite in color

Same images as earlier, but in color this time.

It takes just a little sun and wonderful clouds to make Yosemite the magical place it always seems to be.

A little reflection and a lot of mountain.

Yosemite Trip

Back from a Spring trip to Yosemite last week.

Wonderful day on Tuesday and the roads were open.

Wed and Thur the roads out of the valley were closed for thunderstorms, etc.

Thursday was sunny, so we drove all over and managed to get some good location shots.

Tropical Sunset

Tropical Sunset Rose taken Monday morning when the sun was on the other side of the house.

Taken in the shade which evens out the brightness and glare of the sunshine.

Mostly orange and white with a tine of yellow.

Outrageous is her name, beauty is her game.
We spent the weekend in East LA at the Community College State Swim Championships.
Then came home to some warmed up roses that seemed to love the +90• heat of last week.
