Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon in Yellowstone Park

One of the many iconic photo locations in Yellowstone, the South Rim Drive of the Canyon.  Definitely, one of the spots I remember most from my early visits to the park.  The canyon is stunning, it is just a reminder of the many "looks" the park has in such a relatively small area of land.  The falls have a lookout directly above the crest of the falls.  You can see some people standing there in this photo.  It is quite the impressive site, in that particular location as well.  I did take some video, but that vantage point, I don't know if pictures really capture the power of the falls.  The river is so heavy & it is channeled even narrower at the drop.  I have never been to Niagara, so I wonder how it compares.  

I took a few different shots from various locations here.  This isn't particularly my favorite that I took, but I wanted to see the detail I got at full zoom (120mm).  I am looking forward to having my souped up computer that will be able to eat HDR's for lunch!!  Till then I am stuck on my tricycle (laptop) pedaling as fast as I can....

Last Night’s Sunset from Spring Branch | Houston, TX

Well, it is now 4am....  Up all night working on my website, uploading pictures, changing the format, wondering what the hell am I doing, say to myself "dang I need another computer to do all this faster....."  So, the sun was sun was setting last night & it started to rain.  It was really beautiful lighting as the sun was shining through the evening shower, this picture does no justice!  I tried the wide angle lens that I have, but ended up using my old trusty Nikon 24-140 f4 that has all the bells & whistles Nikon had to offer like 6 years ago, lol.  Anyway, here's your moment of Zen!
