Northbound by johnmumaw

Decided to leave my Colorado Plateau comfort zone a couple of weeks ago for another desert experience. I’d always wanted to visit the Racetrack Playa in Death Valley to witness one of nature’s strangest phenomena. A storm passing through the region convinced me to head out there, and I wasn’t disappointed. Had the playa to myself that afternoon and morning, and the crepuscular rays from that evening were a special blessing. Yeah, an empty desert with a touch of magic…..not too far out of my comfort zone after all!
Many thanks to Willie Huang for lighting a fire under my ass, and David Thompson for some generous tips. Special thanks to Sarah Marino & Ron Coscorrosa for their superb ebook titled ‘DESERT PARADISE:
The Landscape Photographer’s Guide To Death Valley National Park’
. Highly recommended!

Grumpy O&B by crystallynn

I’m a grumpy orange and blue fan tonight! The University of Florida football team really got my hopes up this year and are still going to the SEC championship, but they are breakin my heart tonight :(. I had to stop watching the game, drink a glass of wine, and process some photos instead, lol. I’m sure those of you that passionately follow teams know how I feel! Thank you for stopping by 🙂
