Bridge Under the New River Gorge Bridge

Daily:

Fall is a great time to take the winding dirt road into the River Gorge,West Virgina. Beautiful autumn colors light up the deep gorge. At the bottom you cross a bridge that leads you up to Wolf Creek. I spent a day just photographing this incredible valley.

Autumn in Yellowstone National Park

Daily Photo:

Since we are getting into fall hear in the U.S., I thought I would share some fall photos for the next few days. I’m preparing to head out to Yosemite National Park, and if all goes well, I can stay in touch, when I can find Wi-Fi in the mountains. It’s kind of iffy, but we’ll see.

Day at the Carnival, Santa Barbara,Ca

Daily Photo:

I thought this was a cool bronze-like statue of a boy enjoying a day with his father, uncle or someone special in his life, riding his shoulders, as they hung-out at the carnival. Kind of reminds me of the 50’s when I was a kid horsing around with my dad. This is located just off state street in downtown Santa Barbara, California.

Oo ee Baby, Won’t You Let Me Take You On A Sea Cruise

Daily Photo:

If you haven’t tried cruising, you’ll need to put it on your bucket list. For any age it is a whole lot of fun. You unpack once and you’re good to go for the week. Royal Caribbean a few years ago added the “Liberty of the Seas” to their fleet of mega-ships. I personally like the mega-ships with big mall-like palisades, Ice skating rinks, rock climbing walls, and on and on. This is a shot of the colorful pool deck with the disco up above in the skybox. Like the old nostalgic song says..”Oo ee Baby, won’t you let me take you on sea cruise”.

Waterfalls at Japanese Gardens, Portland, Oregon

Daily Photo:

Japenese Gardens are always alot of fun to photograph. Portland’sĀ  Japanese Gardens, has one of the most impressive man-made waterfalls I’ve ever seen. I don’t know who designed it, but it definitely is a work of art. The Red Maple trees set it off so colorfully and the water cascades down tiers that look quite natural.

Moon Over The Gold Nugget, Shell Beach, California

Daily Photo:

The golden hues of the sunset on this giant rock or “Sea Stack” of sorts, kind of reminded me of a huge “gold nugget”. I wander if there is one, somewhere buried deep in the earth, waiting to be found. One gold piece that size would make you rich as Bill Gates. I digress.

This beautiful beach we stayed at this summer, is called Shell Beach, which is just north of the infamous party beach-Pismo Beach. We were there a few days before July 4th celebrations and from our room high on the cliffs of Shell Beach, we could watch the R.V’s and campers clamouring through the sand dunes, looking to find a place on the beach to celebrate the 4th. Pismo Beach is one of the few beaches I know of, where you can drive right down on the beach and set up camp. Pretty cool idea.

In 1971, while stationed at Vandenburg Air Base, I had the rare opportunity on Pismo Beach, to see theĀ bioluminescence of phytoplankton, light up the waves and our footprints as we walked. I have never seen it since. I have heard, the Island of Viques, off Puerto Rico, has seen these little “light up in the dark fish”.

Chocolate Lovers Paradise, San Francisco

Daily Photo:

For all the chocolate lovers, I couldn’t help but take a shot of one of the many confectionery fudge shops around the fish market in downtown San Francisco. Chocolate could surely ruin dinner and that wasn’t quite what we had in mind.

Crystal Bay, Lake Tahoe, California

Daily Photo:

We picked a great time to visit Lake Tahoe. In early June nobody was there. We were one of the only travelers in our hotel at Kings Beach. We drove around the whole lake and decided we liked the northern and eastern area for photos of sunsets and rock formations, such as the one found in the photo. It was down a path from a residential area that had public access. We found out that folks here don’t take kindly to people trespassing on their property. They paid for the view and they want it all to “themselves”!

Turquoise Blue of Cancun, Mexico

Daily Photo:

I don’t think you can find more beautiful and warm waters than they have in Cancun, Mexico. I spent a day going in one big circle, wading through the huge long pool, back across the Caribbean Sea and then the pool again. Cancun is one long white sand beach, with hotels lined up the whole stretch. We’ve stayed at various hotels here, but you never grow tired of peering out into this hypnotizing Caribbean Sea.
