Managed to capture one shot of a young monk looking back before he hid himself behind the hill.
Evening Tufa Reflection on Mono Lake
Appreciating beautiful weeds under the summer sun.  Green grass and happy feelings. Nature is always uplifting.

Weekend hike at Watkins Glen
Hiking at Wintergreen gorge where I stumbled across some striking fungi.
A world I go to for shelter.
The threshold to everything you've ever wanted.
Entering through the dream gate...it might be a rough one.
Dancing in flower fields can lead to wild hallucinations. Is it reality or another mirage?
Searching intently for a moment to capture I saw this man with his dog but the picture did not yet feel right. Moments later I turned around to find the dog staring back at me. Snap!
On a foggy day I had mom stick feathers to my shoulder-blades. Time to give this a try.
The birds laid out for me a perfect pattern, collectively.
It was our first day there -no sleep due to the all-night airplane ride- and we found ourselves scrambling over the rocky burren of Ireland.
This was an "Indigo Bunting" but is now simply a beautiful blue spectacle of the natural world.
A photograph was my mission, and I happened to notice this despondent lady across the way. I was nervous to approach her, but I did my best to be discreet and snapped a shot haphazardly. From the look
