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.

This Snow is On Me

Okay, yesterday I published Thinking of Mexico. Today we had our first snowfall in Pittsburgh and a little more than expected. So if you were stuck in traffic or fell on the ice…my bad. To make up for It I will share a winter picture from a few years ago. Hopefully, this will bring warmer weather?

Scenic Views Candidate #3–Canals of Milan

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am focusing on images that are scenic in nature. This was taken in Milan Italy in 2011. It is the largest canal in the city of Milan and lined with restaurants, clubs and antique store.

Sunset at Sunset Beach

We stayed for one month on Sunset Beach, a small residential community in Treasure Island Florida. On every clear evening people gathered to watch the sunset, surf or stroll on the beach during the magic hour.

Sunset Beach

Gulf Boulevard runs along the Gulf of Mexico before it turns into Blind Pass at St. Petersburgh Beach. After a while it begins again and runs towards the end of the St. Petersburg peninsula. Where it turns into Blind Pass in Treasure Island there is a small spur called Gulf Boulevard West that runs along the Gulf before it ends at Boca Ciega Bay.

This sour is known as Sunset Beach and is a small community within Treasure Island.It is a tranquil Gulf community that is mostly residential with only two restaurants/bars and few other businesses. When the sun sets people come out on their decks and stroll along the beach. It is not crowded but as the sun falls into the Gulf you can hear cheers and applause along the beach.

Long Boarders

Every night the sunsets at the beach would bring something a little different. On windy nights the surfers were out and the whipping wind provided photographic challenges. But calm nights would bring out the long-boarders and gentle sea breezes made for a pleasant relaxing photographic experience on Sunset Beach.

Big Sur

Twice in my life I did the drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco along the Pacific Coast Highway. Once in 1968 by myself and once in the late 1990’s with my family. What was amazing is how little the area of Big Sur had changed in the thirty years between drives. It is still to this day a rugged and scenic area of unsurpassed beauty. I hope to make the drive at least once more in my lifetime. This picture was taken in the mid 1990’s about 100 miles south of Carmel California.
