Skeleton Angel

Saw this somewhere on the wall at the Truth or Consequences in New Mexico. Supposedly this town is called after some 70th or 80th TV show. Nothing really much interesting there other than a hot springs resort right by the Rio Grande, the section of Rio Grande before it completely dried out. Place to visit once in a lifetime.

Cactus Blooming

Spring seems to be about the corner, we had some nice warm days here in North Carolina, which means I had to do some yard work and started doing spring landscaping cleanup. Fun times.

This photo was taken nowhere near North Carolina. Last year we took Spring break in New Mexico and drove south the White Sands National monument. To get there we had to go through the Valley of Fire, large valley full of black lava, from not sure how many tens of thousands of years ago volcanic activities. In the cracks of that lava there were many cactuses, in some nice bloom. I never saw them blooming in the wild, cool sight for sure.

White Sands Wind Storm

Last year at the White Sands National Monument during a serious sand storm. This photo is not out of focus, everything is somewhat soft and blurry due to the blowing sand in the air, which make it look pretty cool.

Year End

Thanks all for giving a few moments of your time during this year. I really appreciate it. It was a good year in many respects. There were many great accomplishments, some setbacks and a few disappointments. That is how life is. I hope you had a good year as well. I’m looking forward to what is coming ahead.

Landscape Photographer Dream

I think that any landscape photographer would love to be in the shoes of that guy. Any time of the day. He probably got some nice shots from up there. I sure got one too.

Let us all have as many of these moments in the next year as well. Happy coming New Year folks. See you in 2015!

Blood Moon

Another photo taken with my Lumia 1020 phone. In some situations it takes really good photos, and since it can take them in RAW format, I have the full power of the post processing if needed, but I didn’t have to do much to this one.

I was laying flat on my stomach on the white sand while wind was blowing sand all over me. The following night was the full moon and lunar eclipse, the “Blood Moon”. I slept through it.
