I closed May 2018 with a hike with my mom and a group of enthusiastic hikers. Advertisements
One way for a landscape photographer to catch people unaware: aim the camera higher than the height the people are standing or you can do what I do – go to a crowded place (like the City of Phoenix in China) and I can guarantee you can catch someone unaware. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge
When I think of challenge, I think of my hiking adventure up Waterfall Canyon in 2017.
…and we are into May. Yay!
When I think tranquil, I think calm waters. When I think tranquil, I also think spending a few hours watching animals live their lives. Tuesday Photo Challenge
Here is a look from my third hike this year – the hike that probably brought new fears to my life and had the most impact on my hiking experience even though I can most definitely blame myself for wearing poor traction shoes on this hike.
I had my second hiking adventure at the end of February.
After China, my next adventure was originally going to be heading home to sleep and to re-adjust to the time zone but my mom had other plans.
I went to Bear Lake for the second time last week.
And of course, the trip of the year has to be my second trip to China.
I absolutely love water photography and take every chance I can get to photograph it. This picture is from my most recent trip to Bear Lake. It was my second time to visit this beautiful lake. My first time was in September. This time, I came with my mom and her friends. I was once…
When my mom called my former student’s mother, aka her friend, last Saturday, I knew this Thanksgiving would be similar to last year’s Christmas – we would be spending the day with my former student’s family.
This will definitely go down as one of my most memorable views of 2018.
I went on a day trip yesterday. It wasn’t to any place new. I went to Bear Lake back in September, during Labor Day weekend. The only difference this time was I wasn’t the one driving and we went all the way to Montpelier, Idaho. Along the way, I saw an abundance of bear statues.…
Every year, right about the week of Thanksgiving, I will begin to reflect upon the year – travels, hiking, adventures, accomplishments, etc.
I just love the white aspen trees in this picture.
This is one of my favorite images from my hike last Saturday.
It was difficult for me to decide where to hike this past weekend after my retreat was done.
When I think of slippery, I think of ice… (makes me shiver just thinking of it)
Here is another picture from my afternoon trip up Snow Basin on Sunday. I absolutely love the colors autumn offers in this picture. It’s one of the main reasons why I love fall – the colors are just incredible. If it wasn’t for the cold, I believe I would’ve stood there longer than 5 minutes.…
After completing my household tasks yesterday, I drove up to Snow Basin Ski Resort (about 30 minutes away) with every intention of doing one last hike before winter sets in.
To be honest, I did not think I can come up with pictures for this topic but then, I started looking into my archive and saw these pictures from my trip to Macau earlier this year where I visited a very fancy hotel with lots priceless statues and valuables. Immediately thought of this photo challenge.…
Here is a picture of a duck I took a few weeks ago when I went to Silver Lake. It was interesting just sitting there in the middle of the lake watching ducks swim. I never knew ducks swam the doggy paddle with their feet. There were two ducks that swam very close to me…
