2018 Photo Review

Waterfalls, dragonflies, and wildflowers make up most of my portfolio and this year’s favorites continue the trend. Into the mix I’ve added a few more Landscapes and other random selections. In all, I would like to think that my year in review speaks to the underlying aim to show the wonder of a great and wonderful Creator. Enjoy:) and blessings to your New Year!

More Phoenix Flowers and Friends

My Phoenix photos ,from a couple of weeks ago now, continue to hold out hope for some warmer spring weather.  These butterfly buddies and this gorgeous flower is all unknown to me. perhaps some of you Southwest bloggers can help the rest of easterners out. The Desert Botanical Gardens once again served as the photo shoot host.

Favorites Photos of 2017

It’s that time of the year to look back and choose some favorites. Here’s a tidy 2 dozen of my personal sentimental favorites. All four seasons of my ordinary hikes are represented. Most were taken close to home, demonstrating that the wonders of creation can always be found near your own backyard.

A click on any photo will enlarge your view and give you a slide show format.

Sunday Scene – He Knows

You know when I sit and when I rise

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.

Friday Fritillary

I snapped these Silver-Bordered Fritillaries at the beginning and end of a recent days end hike. Changing sunlight and windy conditions created some different looks.

 

 

 

Four Flutters

My wife surprised me with a new lens for my birthday. One of many surprises this year. So, I’m playing with my 55-300mm. A special thanks to our old neighbor and photo blogger Mic over at landscapes and other abstractions for helping her navigate unknown territory.

The trails have netted four butterflies with the lens in the last couple of weeks. Enjoy.
