Back from the Mountains

This old earth is beautiful wherever I travel. Yes, with climate change, even the heat of the day, a dry heat, is like walking under a furnace. Wyoming had an unusual amount of rain! Everything was pretty green for July and meadow and mountain flowers were bursting everywhere. Just a taste below. The blues and greens of the photos make it look cooler than it was. (Click on photos for a closer view.)

This was the view from our hotel balcony and I thought for sure that tree in the center was a reincarnated buffalo.

Even the trees were reproducing like crazy after the rain.

Above is a small portion of the Grand Tetons with the Snake River at its Basin.

July in the Garden

After I get back from my trip, these will all be going to seed or beaten down by the rains. But I will share now, while they are in their peak.

Glowing Orbs

I took my new camera on a recent trip to a national park. During the evening we were blessed with a full moon. I did not have a tripod, but leaned against a nearby tree and took the following photos, zooming out toward that charismatic glowing orb in the sky.

I may have lots of trouble focusing on the close-up stuff, but this lens likes the celestial.
