Low tide; be careful.

Various cloud formation types revealed. Camera facing South, sun setting to our right view from side of Pleasant Valley facing San Juan Mountains in Colorado; Solstice, June 20, 2016. I do not expect to ever see its equal.
Say that three times fast! On this day, (Nov 7, 2016). the Black Forest was white! Taken near Colmar, Germany.
Yosemite, NP 2011
Girls taking shortcut through Flowers, Rabat Morocco. Do they take them for granted? I hope not.
Our farm is just to the right of this driveway. So we see the seasons' constant changes. How lucky!
Sometimes you cannot fit it all into a single frame.
Film # 107-22; Scanned film at low resolution by mistake. Will re-do.
In the 1970s when this film shot was taken, things were a lot more primitive than today!
People can walk behind the falls here; if you look closely you can see them.
I "met" this tree on a steep hillside while being shown the site of a future cabin. A few years later, in 2012, I stayed in the cabin, went onto the porch outside and, there was the gnarly tree!
Telephoto from very far away. The granite crest of the dome rises 4,737 ft above the valley floor!
At The Zoo, Syracuse, NY: hard rocks, soft water.
.... at the crossroads. Behind the fortress in Salzburg, Austria. Captured on 35mm film using a 440 mm telephoto in the late 1970s.
How's THAT for depth of field?
Total quiet, total peace.
In the rain - beautiful
"Lighting at 2 O'Clock." No, not the time 2 o'clock, but the direction 2 o'clock (with 12 meaning light coming from straight ahead). So the foliage is slighlty back-lit. Beautiful, yet few people seem to notice.
Off the coast of southern England
This scene, here shown via zoom* lens, is seen each morning from a cabin near Ridgway, Colorado. Yet, it's never the same scene twice. I have been lucky to stay a guest at this cabin; no two photos are ever the same! *
Wolf Run, NC, 2006

Lake Placid, NY, on January 1 2015
"Discovered" while hiking, which is a main reason for hiking!
On the Road from Fez to Meknes, Morocco
Schonbuhel Castle is at Wauchau Valley (actually on the Danube River), Austria. At that moment, the lit-up castle contrasted against the dark clouds.
A snow Drift outside our kitchen window, a snowy January, 2009
Two and one half minutes before peak sunset color, but we did not know it at the time. You cannot "predict" a sunset's color! What you can do is wait and watch and,take what Nature gives. June 20, 2016, Juan Mts. Colorad
Two minutes before and two minutes later, the color was almost gone, as the setting sun shown under the clouds from our right onto rain sheets over the San Juan Range. That's Mt Sneffels in the middle. Timing is everything. A stunning scene I was lucky to witness !!!
This fall is about 30 minutes north of Ithaca, New York. Notice the contrast of hard rock and soft water. Yet, the soft water has carved a long channel through this rock.
Scotland, where my maternal grandfather's roots were, ...my roots. A different feeling being in that place. Original photo on film, scanned to digital.
Textures! Rock, Bark and needles.
Lucky telephoto - they are very skittish!
As I approached this shepherd, he waved his arms wildly. I thought he must want me away from his flock. Turned out there are Roman underground caverns all around the field with small vent holes that one can easily fall into. I thanked him, showed him photos of my family and we were friends. Neither spoke the others language.
Photo taken lower, towards valley, in order to capture some trees in foreground.
Twisted Tree best viewed within a short time after sunrise... the only time of day that the lighting is perfect.
Cap Hatien, Haiti. One had to ride up a treacherous trail on a donkey's back to get here... as the rains approached.
They walk to and from their home and the nearest non-dry well... the water jugs balanced on their heads. Try it.
My first visit to Yosemite, 2011. What a thrill!
On a back road in Colorado, just as the sun rose.
Both our ship and theirs had trouble making way... Photographers: like that depth-of- field?
Cape Cod. Mass
Tons of water, suspended in droplets, showing off for us!
Deep depth of Field captured the yellow flowers anad roakcs plus eh distant mountain wedge.It was raining, but who noticed?
We've only got to cross those mountains

A quite large dairy farm two miles from our quite small feed farm.
You're in another world. This shows that the photographer, in the end, captures light. [And, that light is constantly changing
A Quotation from: www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news... : "The tree started life as a fence post at least 77 years ago.
Wanaka artist and writer Gwenda Rowlands, 85, is a keeper of local history and remembers the fence line from 1939, when she first visited it in a little dinghy her father built for her and her older brother.
She has watched it evolve from a "hacked off branch from nearby willows" to a symbol of determination.
"It was 1939 I remember it growing there and that is not yesterday."
Hard to find a more beautiful place than New Zealand... and it never stops!
