Carolina Surfing!

California may be famous for surfing, but it's common on the East Coast too, as is paddleboarding.
These folks looked like they were enjoying themselves in the wavy water.
All in all, a great day!

Our First Dog

Here's a current shot of our first dog, Socks. He's 12 years old, and while he's turning grey and getting a little hard of hearing, he still loves to play and go for walks. A couple of weeks ago he happily hiked five miles with me. Next week I'll show you our other dog.

Montaña de Oro Trees

Last time I was in California I visited Montaña de Oro State Park, near San Luis Obispo. This week's Skywatch Friday is of some trees I found there.

Folly Beach Pier

Last week I showed you Folly Beach, and this week I'll highlight its pier.
I always find piers to be fun photography subjects, from every angle.
And what can beat a nice day at the beach?
Next week I'll show you some surfers.

Folly Beach

For Our World Tuesday, here are a few pictures from Folly Beach, near Charleston, from last autumn.
I love the ocean, and living in the middle of a continent sometimes I miss it.
The people living in these houses see it every day, although I'm not sure I'd want to be there in a hurricane!

Thunderbirds (1)

Every year the Air Force Thunderbirds put on a display for the Air Force Academy graduation, and it's easy to see anywhere in town. We took a little time off from the office to watch this year's display, and here's one of my shots.

Fox Run Park

Since we moved a couple of years ago I haven't been to Fox Run Park as much, but I went there a few weeks ago to try out a fisheye lens before buying it, and here are the results.
It was a learning experience as I'd never used a fisheye before.
But it was fun and I ended up ordering the lens.
There was still ice on the lake a few weeks ago, but it's all gone now.
