Sunrises and Sunsets in Tanzania

14 06 2016

Was on a 7 day safari with African Wildcats Expeditions up in the Northern Circuit of Tanzania and then spent 10 days on Zanzibar.

Haven’t had a lot of time to go through ALL the photos, but some struck me as quick easy winners….  Hope you enjoy.

The Fire Wave–Valley of Fire State Park

16 03 2015

Valley of Fire State Park is about 45 minutes drive north of Las Vegas. IMO, it’s the more interesting of the two :) Tucked away ,about a 30 minute walk from a parking lot, is "The Fire Wave" It’s not "THE WAVE", but it’s a little wave of colour that beckons to photographers.. "COME – shoot me!"

We hurried in to the location to beat the impending sunset and potential downpour, only to get a few shots in PRE downpour and then some really fun shots of a temporary waterfall and water flowing through the Fire Wave. What a crazy outing.

Red Rock Canyon, NV – 2011

13 02 2015

Just outside of Las Vegas (probably where the mob buried their problems) There is Red Rock Canyon.  We didn’t get out an hike, just had time for a drive around the loop and the sunset.  It turned out to be a pretty little place….  I can’t believe that it’s been 4 years since we’ve been and that long since I took the pictures – Finally got around to editing them!  FINALLY!  Figured I had to do it before my trip to Bryce/Zion/Antelope at the end of this month Winking smile
