Snakes



I am not fond of snakes.

Kind of a bummer as a landscape photographer.  Part of the job description is to enter into places that snakes live, and although the only poisonous snakes in the area let you know where they are by the way of a rattle, any snake will cause me to run away screaming like a little girl.

My preferred method of snake avoidance is making noise on the trail, which seem to limit my contact with them.  This is also part of the reason that I am not a wildlife photographer, I make too much noise. The other snake avoidance trick is to make my husband go first on the trails (he is not afraid of snakes, and doesn't hesitate to move them from the trail if they don't move by themselves, he is such a nice guy)

The snake fear hasn't stopped me though, I still get out there.

Is That A Ghost? HWY 549 NWAR

E Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

L Look Mom! No cars!


Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon  just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (other wise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!

Towing Capacity - I70 - Eastern Colorado Plains

T The little Prius that could?

Did you know your Prius can tow Mom?
I am actually really shocked.  I had no idea that a Prius had that kind of gumption.
My hat is off for these totally fuel efficient travelers.
Bonus points for their groovy bike.
