Tres Ocotillos

It is almost always worth hanging out for the sunset in Arizona. Tres Ocotillos was captured on Kodachrome at the end on a very prolific day on the Sonoran desert. It is three spiny ocotillos silhouetted against the western sky. It wasn’t until three weeks later when the transparencies came back from Kodak that I noticed the apparition cloud bird chasing the real world bird ready to swallow it whole…or is that just me?

Fish Box

Fish Box

Fish Box – Jagalchi Market (자갈치시장), Busan, Republic of Korea

Jagalchi Market is the largest fish market in S. Korea. All the fish mongers are women known as Jagalchi Ajumma (middle- aged or married women). The fishing boats start coming in to the docks around 2:00 am and the fish in the box replete with pretty green ribbon was captured at 4:00 am. I was told that this particular fish was caught in the Mediterranean and would sell for $200.00 in Korea.

Bridal Veil Falls North Carolina

Bridal Veil Falls – North Carolina, USA

I dedicate this image to my North Carolina friends. It is a testament to the beauty of their state, and respite from the recent and senseless tragedy in Chapel Hill.

There’s no hiking required to see Bridal Veil Falls in the Nantahala National Forest, North Carolina. The water from the 45 ft. falls drops right over the circular pull-in off scenic highway US 64 so you can drive your car under it.

I like this image because this Red Crossbill looks like he is a rocket ready for blastoff…and indeed he did.

Sunburst, Joshua Tree National Park

Sunburst, Joshua Tree National Park

Sunburst – Joshua Tree National Park, California, USA

I made this capture on the same day as Surreal Yucca and Desert Bouquet only at sunset. This particular Joshua tree caught my eye about an hour before sunset so I had plenty of time to plant my tripod where I determined the sun would set between the fork in the tree. Of course there’s always a mad dash at the very end when you realize your calculations are somewhat off the mark. A small aperture was employed (f/16 on a 50mm lens) to get a star-burst effect.
