Delicate Arch Revisited

I recently came across this image and edited it NIK editing tools and Adobe Photoshop.

If you have never been to Arches National Park, you should think about making the trip. The spectacular views are primarily sandstone and eroding away. The Park Service thought about covering some of the formations with a clear polyethylene chemical but abandoned the idea as environmentally unsafe.

Although there are signs everywhere telling people to not climb on the rocks and stay on the paths, there are a lot of idiots that ignore this and are helping the natural process of erosion with the death of a million touches. Park Rangers fear that Delicate Arch may not last too much longer and although there are many other spectacular views in the park, the collapse of Delicate Arch will be a sad event so see it soon.

Owen Reflected

When my future son in law first visited us in the Pocono Mountains he did not have his now world famous beard. His beard has absolutely nothing to do with this picture. We took him and my daughter to Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. The famous house of Gifford Pinchot.

There had been heavy rain the night before and I took this picture of tree reflections in a small pond. I didn’t realize Owen was even in the picture. My recent image, Upside Down in Mexico has caused me to revisit old pictures of reflections. This one takes on a surrealistic feel when turned upside down and cropped.

Sunset Silhouette in Mexico

A family watching the sunset over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show. They are on an overhead walkway and the shot is taken from a bridge below.

It looks like these two are dancing on the bridge of their ship as the sun sets over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show.

Cemetery by The Sea

Across the channel from Cancún is the island of Isla Mujeres. It’s just a short boat ride to see a gem of real Mexico. The beaches are tranquil compared to Cancún and you can rent a golf cart, bike or motorcycle to explore the small island.

If you do go, on the south end of the island is a wonderful cemetery that is so different than American or European cemeteries it is worth the trip. Of course being an island, all the graves are above ground and with vibrant colors and unusual displays. Its worth the trip.

Reflections in Mexico

One evening in Cancún we had finished dinner at Las Isla Shopping District and while I was waiting for my wife I took some pictures of reflections in the canal. Normally when taking reflections you take the reflection with the object being reflected included in the shot. That night I only took the reflection.

The fence looks more like a painting that a photograph and has an interesting appeal.

When I saw the image during editing I rejected it as stupid. Now a few years later I looked at it again and decide to rotate it 180 degrees and I like it! Looks like a painting
