Spokane Falls

I was in Spokane, in the east of Washington State once very briefly back in 1996. The only photo I'm posting is of the waterfall in the city.

Merry Christmas

I wish all my readers who celebrate it a Merry Christmas. I don't have a Christmas post, but here's a local snow-covered mountain for those stuck in the warm weather covering so much of the country.

More Avila Beach

Continuing with photos from Avila Beach in central California, it's rocky in places.
There were some good waves the day I was there.
I always look for shadows. The pier in the distance is the one from my previous post; I wandered down the beach from there.
Finally I liked the color of this rocky outcropping against the blue sky.

Long Island by Plane

Last week's photo from the air was taken as I was on a jet flying just north of Long Island, near New York City. It's 118 miles (190 km) long, and at its eastern end splits into two very distinct forks. I was very pleased to see and photograph this from the airplane, and was thinking about making it a Skywatch Friday post as I took the photo.

Cottonwood Pass, 1995

For Vintage Weekly, Here's a 1995 photo from Cottonwood Pass, in the mountains of Colorado. It was degraded and seriously discolored, so I changed it to B&W (which suits the mood) and did some restoration. It's not perfect but I was fairly pleased with the result.

Black Forest Park

I've posted from the local Black Forest Regional Park before, and I'm sure I'll do so again because it's easy to get to and is rather pretty.
The dogs love it too.
Unfortunately parts of it were burned in a massive wildfire a couple of years ago, but it won't stop us from visiting.

Park Dogs

These photos were taken on a short hike in the Black Forest regional park. Laika loves to explore and checks everything out...
Socks is older and just hangs out close to me.
