Night Sky in the Rocky Mountains
A couple of days into our trip to Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park, on a clear cloudless night, we decided to drive into the park to look at the stars. Living in Chicago the city lights prevent you from seeing too many stars, but the Rockies promised to hold more. We were not disappointed. The park is so dark and driving in late at night seemed very odd. We were not the only people driving thru the park tho. While we star gazed there were quite a number of cars that passed us. You could see them snaking down the mountain as they approached.
This shot was 84 seconds long. It was a stab in the dark (no pun intended) to know just the right exposure.
Holzwarth Historic site RMNP
White walking around the Holzworth Historic Site in the Rocky Mountain National Park, I came across these Aspen trees. The image of the eye popped out at me as if to say they were watching. The white and black bark was so striking to me – it just called out to be noticed.

Enough of the snow lets look forward to some other color besides shades of grey. This was taken at the gardens of Cantigny Park in Wheaton Ill.

Looking down on this small town nestled between the hills around Mammoth Hot Springs looked so serene. I loved the way the clouds hung in the sky and the sun illuminated the hills on the left.
This guy was sitting in the middle of a path near the Everglades in Florida. So brightly colored against the white sand, I couldn’t pass him by.

This was one of my earlier images, originally shot with film.
River in the Big Horn National Forest, Wyoming
When my husband and I travel, we like to drive so that we can see what is between here and there. This was one of those ‘between’ places. We were on our way to Yellowstone and had to drive thru northern Wyoming which brought us thru the Bighorn National Forest. If there is running water, I am sure to stop – this area was no exception.

Pine Cone Tree
In keeping with the season I’d like to share this almost red and green photo of an evergreen branch.

I often see faces in trees, stumps and nature in general. Here is one of the way I saw this tree stump.
