The picture says it all. Peaceful fall beauty in Yosemite. Have a lovely day and stay healthy.
A few weeks ago we were blessed with some heavy rain that lasted overnight and added some water to a nearly completely dry Merced River and started the waterfalls flowing again. While only temporary, it brought some relief to a very thirsty area. And colors are always so vivid after a rain. Enjoy your day and stay healthy.
An area of photography that I enjoy but only dabble in is astro-photography simply because of the cost of the equipment needed and the knowledge and experience needed to do it justice. But when done correctly with the proper equipment the results can be “otherworldly” and extraordinarily beautiful. I’m working on the experience part but have a long way to go. The equipment? I’ll have to learn to improvise with what I have because that stuff is really expensive! Enjoy your day and stay healthy.
The building where maintenance and repairs were done on trains used to be called a roundhouse. Some of them had a turntable inside so they could maneuver the locomotives and cars into position for easy parking for storage or work in one of the open bays. I also think it might have kept the tools and large equipment more centrally available for mechanics. This roundhouse is located in Jamestown Ca at the Railtown Historic Museum. It is still in active operation and maintains and restores their antique train equipment. It remains open through private funding and a wonderful group of volunteer’s after the state closed it down a few years ago. The park offers train rides during the summer, and a Polar Express ride in December. Enjoy your day and stay healthy.
After a very long, hot, smoky, dusty and just plain miserable summer, fall has finally arrived. If the weather doesn’t indicate it, at least the calendar does. This picture was taken a few years ago of El Capitan from a little different perspective.
Not anything too special. Just some pretty flowers. Have a wonderful weekend.
