Still Red

Left over from last fall the bright red is still stunning in the drabness of early spring along the Mississippi River.

On a Cliffside

This is the hotel where we stayed in Ronda. A close look will show the teeny size of the people along the edge and give a perspective. What an awesome sight.

Another Cactus, Another Flower

Again, the amazing color of a flower and cactus growing, it seems, out of solid rock.

Hazy Sun

In late summer the sun just doesn't have the strength it once did, especially along the steep hills of Pine Creek.

Cactus Flower

In this scanned post, the out-of-focus-ness of the original adds to the shimmering quality of the flower itself. It seems surreal, which is what I think of some of those amazing flowers that grow on cacti in a desert, like this one in Arizona.

Me and You and Pooh

A favorite of my wife and daughter walking along a road along Pine Creek. Notice the Pooh Bear under the arm- of Mom, of course.

Museum of Bandits

I didn't go in to see why a museum for bandits was in the city of Ronda in Spain. But, as in so many other instances, the architecture and composition got my attention.

Prairie Dogs

Taken in Arizona, this was scanned from a photo. At first I thought the lines from a fence surrounding the prairie dogs took away from the picture. Now, they add a uniqueness to it that actually made me wonder who was truly fenced in.

Also Looking Up

I have no idea what she was looking at, but she certainly had an intensity.

Looking Up

At a church in Cadiz, Spain, I looked up and was entranced by the lines and shadows and light.

Four Months and Counting Down

Ramsey Bridge
Four months from today I plan to be on this bridge along the Pine Creek Rail Trail nearing the end of riding 60 miles for my 60th birthday. In fact I will be less than 10 miles from the end at this point.
