Mojave Yucca Against Red Rocks


Mojave Yucca Against Red Rocks

There are amazing landscapes and there are amazing groundscapes in Red Rock Canyon...I think I prefer the latter, when there.

A Knight Among The Rocks?


A Knight Among The Rocks?

This broken remnant of a Joshua tree reminded me of a chess piece, stately in its setting against this vibrant backdrop. Winter can be unyielding, the expanse of desert solitary, but for these ancient markers stand their ground in dignity offering...

Craftsmanship


Craftsmanship

When you slow down to take it all in, you do come across things worth noting. The weathering of a hand built wooden porch, the careful placement of symbols in the construction of a shrine, a cobweb that conveys solitude... serenity, symmetry, and...

End Of The Season

The Old Miner's Chair


The Old Miner's Chair

At the old mine --- all is left is an old chair...long abandoned. I think of an hard working exhausted miner taking a well earned break sitting on the chair enjoying a moment of relaxation and enjoying the view they normally have their back too.

Saw on the ground a piece of wood with Two Nails barely hammered in. Nails are rusted and Wood is rotting. I zoomed in and took this shot. Everything ages, we all get rusty and creased and yet there is still beauty left.

"dancing In The Storm"


"dancing In The Storm"

I was the kind of person who would sit inside the car or in a comfortable restaurant sipping cappuccino while waiting for the storm to subside. After all, I didn't want to get my hair messy or get my shoes dirty. While I have always been an outdoorsy...
