Joshua Tree Cinema

Panamint Range, Inyo County, California

Moments after this, a pair of US Navy F-18 jets flew just a couple of hundred feet above us, banking hard enough that we could see the pilots in the cockpits.  We couldn’t hear, nor see them coming, although the first one gave it away.

Playing with a cinematic crop, which gives these landscapes quite a different look, a depth that the regular frame doesn’t provide.



But still fun.

My Sunshine

A throwback to last April, watching the showers, hoping for some lightning or other exciting action.

Which may not have been smart, since we were on the highest point for several miles around.

But that’s what we do.

She’s looking at the last bit of last winter’s snow on Mount Ashland.  They’ve already received their first snowfall.  Here’s hoping that they have another great year.  They really need it.

Bear Lodge Morning

After the previous evening’s sunset, complete with smoke, Goddess and I settled down into our tent for the night.

Soon after midnight we heard the rumble of thunder.  A perfect soundtrack for the location.  It rumbled past sunrise, but not a drop of rain.


Korean Lantern

Enough landscapes for this week.

But we’re still keeping with the colors.

Gyeongbokgung Palace grounds, Seoul, South Korea

We were lucky enough to be able to visit South Korea this past April, visiting with friends and sightseeing.  It was a great time to visit, since it was after the bitter cold of the Korean winter and before the jangma (“plum rain”, or spring rainy season) and the oppressive humidity of summer.

I was in my element again, enjoying an Asian culture while taking pictures of traditional architecture.

Many more photos to follow.

Have you ever had to chance to enjoy an Asian culture?
