After returning from Kauai I spent a few days in Sedona visiting family. I’ve driven over Midgely Bridge many times coming and going through Oak Creek Canyon but never stopped to photograph it. One reason is there is a small parking lot to the left of this shot that it always full of cars and hikers plus a never ending stream of cars crossing the bridge making a “clean” shot difficult. However, early morning on the day after Thanksgiving the place was deserted and I got what I wanted.
A trip to Kauai has to include these iconic falls The viewing area was packed. Trying to find an open space and keeping folks away long enough for a mid day long exposure took some negotiations. Still didn’t get the exact shot I wanted but next time I’ll try early or late to avoid the crowds.
One of several isolated beaches on Kauai. This was taken while sitting in the water to cool off. There were no waves so the camera was safe.
Returned today from a week on Kauai. I will be posting some other shots but this is what we saw on our last night there. Pretty iconic shot but I never get tired of seeing them and shooting them.
On our last day in Tahoe I walked down to the lake shore to get a sunset and saw this boathouse. There was some controlled burning in the area which gave part of the sky and distant clouds the orange hue.
I have no idea what these rock piles are but assume they’re man made. No one that I talked to seemed to know. They do add some interest to one of the sparkling blue coves of Lake Tahoe.
After a full day of snow I went back to Emerald Bay the next day to find it basking in the sun.
