SH*T HAPPENS!   3 comments

After years of hiking and photo excursions, today I damaged my first DSLR camera, and it happened to be my latest one — Nikon D500. While taking photos in San Diego’s Balboa Park, I dropped the camera and lens breaking the bayonet fitting between the camera and the Nikon 28-300 lens. Like so many accidents, it was the result of a careless mistake.

A Christmas Eve Walk In The Woods   Leave a comment

This Christmas Eve was sunny and warm in Kingwood, Texas and as I have done in past visits, I went for a photographic walk in nearby East End Park. It’s just what I do.

“I wish to know an entire heaven and an entire earth.”

— Henry David Thoreau

“There is no point in hurrying because you are not actually going anywhere. However far or long you plod, you are always in the same place: in the woods. It’s where you were yesterday, where you will be tomorrow. The woods is one boundless singularity. Every bend in the path presents a prospect indistinguishable from every other, every glimpse into the trees the same tangled mass. For all you know, your route could describe a very large, pointless circle. In a way, it would hardly matter.”

― Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

 

Late Fall In Sabino Canyon Photo Essay   Leave a comment

The large cottonwoods, Arizona Sycomore, Ash, Willows common to riparian area along Sabino Creek share their color around the Holiday Season — nature’s gift to our beautiful canyon.

The trail leads through
the towering saguaros,
I search for yellows and reds
near the dry creek.

Leaves in sequence fall
fulfilling the plan
guarded by nature
in fragments of gold.

I stopped to wonder,
not knowing the random
planting in the entrails
of Sabino Canyon.

Hiking The La Milagrosa / Agua Caliente Canyon Loop — Panoramas   Leave a comment

D500 Photos

Hiking the La Milagrosa / Agua Caliente Canyon Loop is a popular hike offered by the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN). The 6.5-mile loop takes the hiker up the ridgelines and down into two canyons located on the eastern edge of the Santa Catalina Mountains. We usually hike the loop clockwise, taking the Milarosa trail first looping back through the Agua Caliente Canyon, but this morning (December 9, 2016) we reversed the loop hike thereby providing a different perspective for those of us who usually hike the loop clockwise. 

The vistas from the ridges provide hikers beautiful panoramas of Tucson, the Catalina Foothills and the Santa Catalina Mountains through which the lower segment of the Catalina Highway can be seen. Since this was a beautiful clear morning, I decided to take the time to take photos that could be merged into panoramas in Photoshop. ENJOY!

be sure to pay attention to the path.
The path teaches us the best way to arrive
and enriches us while we are traveling alone it.”
