The Alamo - between the rain...

The Alamo - site of the infamous battle to establish the Texas Republic.

This venue provides a view of this most-famous mission without the clutter of buildings that sprouted around this location over the years.

Upon careful inspection, one can spot bullet holes, fragmented ledges, and inscriptions made by some of the famous inhabitants of the historic mission.

Well cared for and free to the public - the Alamo stands as a proud symbol for all, and for those that care for this historic landmark in San Antonio, Texas.

Blossom Beauty on the Marsh

Each year, a roadside canal beckons to the long days of Summer with incredible Lotus Blossoms. These flowers do much to make the otherwise somber appearance of the marsh seem drab in comparison. - Mackay Island Wildlife Refuge, Knotts Island NC.

Thunder in the Garden

An afternoon thunderstorm steps into the Garden of the Gods, near Colorado Springs, Colorado. Hoped to catch an accompanying bolt of lightning in image, but available light did not allow for slow shutter speed need for capture.


Cool Clear Water -

A typical Desert Vista punctuated with river view. Land mass just out of this riverbed is desolate, dry and sparse of vegetation.
