Five Shots: Early Morning Stroll in Kauai

Snoozing Sea Lion

On May 25, 2019, I took an early morning walk on the eastern side of Kaui. Since the 2020 lockdown, I’ve been itching to travel. I enjoy plastering on my computer monitor this day from the past which helps to satisfy my wanderlust inclinations. Here are six shots from the walk. Which one do you like best?

5 Shots: Sedona in the Snow


I wait for it each year. The annual snowstorm transforms our dusty region into breathtaking beauty as at least four inches of snow fell overnight in the Verde Valley and our next-door neighbors in Sedona. Driving around Boyton Pass, here are a few shots of our morning. Which one do you like the best?

5 Shots: Vallecito Lake, CO

Just got back from a four-day vacation to Southwest Colorado, 18 miles north of Durango, Colorado. It was a seven-hour car ride from the Verde Valley, AZ where I live. We went to escape the heat and to sit by a mountain lake. Here are some shots of our Airbnb cabin. I wanted lakeside access. I got it! Which shot do you like best?
