This area hasn't been officially named the choir. It is a coinage that i came up with. This area is located east of the Egg Factory - about a 10-15 minute walk. The entire area is amazing, colourful, scenic, weird, surreal..... unfortunately, my...
Where we camped on the John Day.
Tree near my house.
Photo taken on 05/April/2011 during a treking in the Atacama Desert. This place is called Salar de Tara. A salar is a salt desert. The scenary looks like more other planet than the Earth itself.
Volcanoes of Atacama desert. I shot in RAW and converted into B&W using Lightroom 3. The photo was taken from a car in movement.
I decided to make the 2 hour drive from Tahoe to spend my last day exploring a bit of Yosemite and Mono Lake. Needless to say, the early morning was greeted with thunder, lightning and torrents of rain in volume that almost prompted me to go online...
This scenic area is an actual designated scenic area off of i17, traveling south towards Sedona (about 5 miles before the Sedona exit). Nvtls, very nice view of the Arizona landscape north of Sedona - which would yield wonderfully to a panorama treatment.
If massive boulders and an abundance of granite in every shape and form appeals to you, then Watson Lake Dells is a must see. A short 20-30 minute hike along a well-maintained bike/jogging path introduces you to the first boulders of Watson Lake...
Sedona is a special place. Not because of the multi-million dollar real estate be-splattering the landscape; not because of all the high-end spas and holistic centers tooting well-being; not because of the energy centers (vortexes) which promote...
This picture in lower antelope canyon is inside the canyon where a beam of light hits the sandy floor. Sand was thrown towards the shaft of light to illuminate the image.
Sand dunes in the death valley are extremely hot during summer, reaching temperatures of about 120F.
Beautiful sunset seen as we traveled home to Texas through Arizona
Full moon rising after sunset in Tucson, Arizona.
Last rays of twilight turn the clouds pink and make the walls of Castle valley glow like embers as the moon hovers over the valley
Skies blaze with late evening light on the clouds above Abiquiu Reservoir with Cerro Pedernal jutting above the horizon
Along the Canyon Loop Tail at Catalina State Park at sunrise. The sun was just below the horizon and for a brief period, this Saugro was nicely framed by the fast-moving clouds, a rarity in Tucson in the winter.
"Wilderness..... The word itself is music." Especially for those of us who are attuned to its sonorous melodies - as was Edward Abbey whose quote begins this summary. I love the landscape, geography of the southwest. Love it! This picture was taken...
Summer in the desert....... Not fun at all. Nvtls, I was en route to the airport in Phoenix after some Sedona therapy and noticed an expanse of saguaro cactus off of the expressway. I had time before my flight, and decided to exit and navigate a route...
Waning light silhouettes the skeletal branches of tall brush in this national park famous for its mysterious rock and plant forms.
With climbs from easy to fuggedabodit, Joshua Tree Park is a magnet for rock climbers far and wide. One climber at the very top of Intersection Rock, belays his partner just below as the day's sun has gone below the horizon.

Photographed at dusk out in the desert at a Navajo Hoop Dance performance. The white objoct (Bokeh) in the backgroound in the moon. The blur is or course the motion of the performer as he was playing his native drum.

White Sands National Monument after rain.
If 90+ temperatures are a deterrent, then winter is definitely the best season to visit Death Valley (although Dante's Peak may prove an uncomfortable contrast). Nvtls, Death Valley is undoubtedly my favourite place. I absolutely love DV. The myriad...
It took 3 years to obtain a permit to wander the wylds of Coyote Butte North. My only regret is that i only had winter's short hours to explore the Coyote Butte North area. Nvtls, absolutely amazing geography which is a must for all landscape...
Arches National Park's iconic Delicate arch near sunset.
The shades in the mountains, lit by the bright noon sun, really make this image.
I love photos of sand dunes and wanted to see Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado during a driving trip around the Southwest. Driving up from New Mexico, I traveled through high winds and rain. In the distance, I could see sand flying high in...
