Couple years ago right around this time, plus minus couple weeks, we were in Arizona, driving on Route 66 and enjoying the scenery. I saw this train coming in my back mirror, pulled to the side and took this photo. It is very surprising how fast they go, really. You want to take a photo, but they time the camera is out and ready, the train already in completely different place.
Another week is almost behind us. We are starting to get those huge Autumn spiders in our yard. They are about one inch in size at their largest and very scary looking as they seat in the middle of their large spider webs. Its that season again. Probably for about 2-3 weeks and then they will disappear for about eleven months. I’ll try to take a photo of one of them if I get a chance.
Today’s photo is probably an easy one for the most of you. First, very similar composition was posted here sometime last year, so any old timers will recognize it, or otherwise many will probably just know where it is. The colors speak for itself.
Weekend update: It is at Sliding Rock State park, just north of Sedona. David Bright Photography identified it first!
I have never been to the Joshua Tree National Park in California. I guess it is full with Joshua Trees. Just like this one. To see one, you don’t have to be in California, you can see plenty of them in Arizona on your drive from Las Vegas to Flagstaff. To get better views and get close to them it might help if you get of HW93 and I40. Take some of the side roads. Who knows, you might see something totally unexpected.
I took a few photos on our one day trip to Grand Canyon but it seems like I only posted one or two of them in the last couple years. I’ll try and process a few more in the coming weeks and share with you guys. It was an amazing day out there and it would be nice to visit it again.
This was the beginning of the day, beautiful sunrise, what was followed by incredible day of sunshine, clouds and snowstorm. Grand Canyon is the place to see, if even not in person, but some other way.
