Duck Lake Lodge
Ya Gotta Start Somewhere!
I worked at the Canyon in 1986, and have revisited it on 4 occasions since then. It was a great place to work, but with views like these, it made the job easier.Overlook 1 Overlook 2 Overlook 3
I've hiked to the bottom of the Canyon more than 10 times. Some of the trails are easier Trail than others. Hermit
The second trail is called Hermits Trail, and after you hike several miles, you come to Dripping Springs. Dripping As you can see, it's appropriately named. It was much easier to see formations like Duck on a Rock!Duck
The Grand Canyon is famous for it's sunsets, Purple Haze and the weather can be unpredictable, Storm but when you get that once in a lifetime shot it makes you appreciate the experience even more. Lightning
I can't wait to go back next year!
On Friday after Thanksgiving I was trying some shots around the house. I was trying to get shots that fit the theme. Colorful Duck and corner in my house
Here is another vacation picture. I took it in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota road to nowhere.

Grand Canyon During the Golden Hour
Now these two shots are not great artistically but were a fun excersize I tried back in 2001 in a trip to Zion and Yellowstone NP. They were both shot around Midnight with a near to full moon. If I remember correctly they were shot with Fuji Film ASA 400 and stopped down a bit but well over a minute exposures. I scanned the Negatives with a Dimage' Scanner.
Little grainy, little out of focus but ahh just throwing *#@% against the wall.
The streaks you see are Stars

This Park is the only place in the world where the Silversword plant grows.
This flower is about the size of a quarter. I think this is the first macro I've taken that has turned out. I'm still learning.

So who the Hell is this Moose Guy? Theme Post
I grew up and Lived most my life as an Italian in NJ Yes, I did for a while work for some "Good Fellas". But after a while I grew tired of the East Coast rat race and decided to move to the Left Coast to a Sleepy Little town in Southern California
I love to go out to Dinner, yes I love fine dining but my favorite thing to do is find great food and a beer for 2 for under $25. But, I am also a great Chef. I love to Cook and should have gone to the Vermont Culinary Institute but that was another life.
Besides Photography, I love music as we have covered already but I also love to travel. I have been as far away as Japan but I mostly like to take Road trips and my favorite destination is America's National Parks
So, that is me in a Nut Shell and I emphasis... NUT
I hope you like me
Road Trip - Mile Marker 2,823 - Crater Lake Oregon
I will try on the photography but no promises on the a-hole part. Thank you my Bun Nee Pal!
Well, this shoot almost didn't happen. It was the last day of the trip and I was kinda sick and thought maybe I should just go home and as we got up to the lake we were informed that the road was closed due to snow and Ice but we could go to the Lodge. So we went and had lunch and by that time the road was clear. But the snow definitely add to the scenery.
Sorry for so many photos, I like to post 5 or less. But I shot almost 400 this day so it was hard to whittle down.
Getting the lighting right at the ocean was hard. I had to position Shannon in such a fasion that the light was comming at her perpendicular to the ocean AND get the ocean in the background! There was only a few bluffs where I could do that.
