I Break for Waterfalls

I have several things I love to photograph but none that capture my heart and vision as do waterfalls. And yes, I have been known to slam on my breaks at the sight of a waterfall including these.

Travel theme: Up

This was one of my first view of Yellowstone. We we parked waiting to get through a construction zone. I got out and looked UP in wonder of all I was getting ready to see.

Watchman Peak, Crater Lake OR

I hiked UP this peac at 4:00am to get some amazing photos of the sun rising over Crater Lake.

Rock Climer, Devil's Tower WY

I had to use the most zoom I could get to capture this rock climber going UP the side of Devil’s Tower. This is an UP I will never do.

White Elegance

Among the many things I didn’t expect to find at Yellowstone National Park are white pelicans. These beautiful birds stand out against the glistening white rapids of Lehardy Rapids.
