I took these photos of lupines at Beeks Bight on Folsom Lake last April 1, 2022. The weather was ideal: sunny, warm, blue sky, and with a wind speed of 3 mph. Of course there were plenty of lupines in bloom. I had a wonderful time taking photos there.
Recently I took six photos of Downtown Stockton since one new building and one new traffic feature has been added there. What’s new? The San Joaquin County Superior Courthouse and a new roundabout at the intersection of Miner Avenue and San Jaoquin Street. Also I took a photo of the Nippon Hospital built in 1919 and three views along McLeod Lake.
Here are some images that I captured on a road trip to Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I took these photos around the fall equinox. From Artist Point Overlook, I took two photos of Yellowstone Lower Falls. Also, I took a photo of an early morning snow at Scaup Lake. I stayed three nights at Old Faithful Lodge Frontier Cabin where I took a picture of The Old Faithful Geyser. Again I took a few photos of hot springs at the Midway Geyser Basin and West Thump. With good luck, I encountered wildlife and I was able to take some photos of elk and bison. For me, it was quite an adventure. Absolutely, I would like to go back to Yellowstone for another visit.
Here are six photos I took on a drive down Rock Creek Road or near the road. I find early spring a good time to visit the area simply because of the green grasslands with wildflowers, vernal pools, rock outcropping, and Salt Spring Lake.
I walked from my place to a nearby Quick Stop to buy one Mega Million ticket to have a chance to win the 1.6 billion dollar jackpot. I brought my camera to take some pictures along the way. Maybe I don’t really need to win the jackpot. Maybe my neighbor is enjoyable enough.
Here are some pictures I took on a recent road trip to California’s Eastern Sierra. The trip started in Stockton, California, going east on CA Highway 120 to US Highway 395 ending in Bishop, California. The return trip was on CA Highway 108 over the Sonora Pass to Stockton. Stops and picture taking included Obsidian Dome near Mammoth Lakes, Owens River Valley, Bishop Creek Canyon, and the eastern slope of CA HWY 108. Most of the pictures were taken in Inyo and Mono Counties. For me, it’s always a delight and joy to see the brilliant fall colors in the Eastern Sierra.
Here’s a mosaic of three pictures I took of Lodi Lake and Mokelumne River. I was participating in a Bird Safari. There were plenty of birds but unfortunately for me they were too small and too fast to photograph. Nonetheless their habit is beautiful.
Here are four pictures that I took while kayaking on Mokelumne River near Lodi Lake, Lodi, California. For me, it was a great way to stay cool on a hot midsummer day. It’s fun to float along the river.
I took these pictures during a trip to visit my sister and her husband who live in Oldsmar, Florida. The first few, I took while on a deep sea fishing trip out of Tarpon Springs, Florida. The next group, I took of Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team which gives free water ski shows at Tower Lake, Oldsmar, Florida. The next group was at a neighbor park. The last group of pictures I took at Sunset Beach, Tarpon Springs, Florida. I especially was delighted to see a small seaplane landing on the beach as the sun went down. For me, it was an awesome visit.
