A very brief trip to the Texas panhandle – Palo Duro Canyon, Cadillac Ranch, and Wind Turbines.

The Texas panhandle is a fascinating region and I spend too little time there unfortunately. Recently I fit in a very quick trip to recharge. Here are a few images from that trip.

Prints of my images are available  if you click on the Licensing/Purchasing images tab on this blog or click this link: https://2amphotography.wordpress.com/licensingpurchasing-images/

That is the end of this little adventure. Thanks for visiting!

 

 

 

A little bit of Grand ‘ole Texas – a photo-tour.

Recently we had two friends from overseas visit with us at our home in Texas. Unfortunately their time in this great state was very limited  so we were unable to show them much of Texas. To compensate, we instead created a ‘photo-journey’ through some of the diversity and grandeur contained within this state.

From the Gulf of Mexico and coastal marshes,  to the Hill Country and on through to the mountains of West Texas…

I hope you enjoyed this partial look at wondrous Texas. So much to experience, too little time.

Southern Forests Region – Australia’s South West

A scenic 36 hours spent in and around magnificent karri, marri and tingle forests (including the “Valley of the Giants”), undulating terrain sliced by numerous rivers and streams, fertile orchards and vineyards, all edged by dramatic cliffs, estuaries, and beaches along the Southern Ocean – welcome to the Southern Forests Region of Australia’s South West.

 

Here are three images from Fernhook Falls on the Deep River.

A grand old Tingle Tree (a so-called Giant Tingle Tree) in the Walpole Wilderness Area. This tree has a circumference of almost 25 meters and is thought to be the oldest living eucalypt in the world. The heartwood has been ravaged by numerous fires yet the tree survives because the “living and growing parts” (xylem and phloem) and located just under the bark.

When stirred up by pulses in river flow, Saponin – a leachate type product from plants breaking down in the water – causes a frothy, often cappuccino-like surface in Circular Pool. The pool’s name refers not to the shape – rather, it is for the currents and resultant eddies (circular flow) which create a myriad of patterns such as this, ephemeral as this pattern is as it is continually morphing.

The Cascades section of Lefroy Brook also contains serene little embayments where the water is calm, such as this little spot.

Segue (of sorts)…

This is a Spotted Pardalote, a tiny and at this time of year very industrious “little colorful job.” I was enthralled for a considerable time as I enjoyed several of these birds gathering their nesting material alongside the Warren River, near Pemberton.

My final two photo-blogs from this trip to Western Australia will be images from Fremantle and the Margaret River Region. I hope you enjoy my existing photo’s and will visit the new posts when they occur.

 

Blackwood River Valley Region and Geographe Region – Australia’s South West

The purpose of this particular trip was that I planned to do some long-exposure night images to capture the Orionid meteor shower with a light-painting of the ubiquitous grass-tree in the foreground. Unfortunately my planning was awry so only managed to get a few shots before the rising sun burnt-out the stars. Alas, no meteors included in the images but I am well-pleased with the resultant grass-tree images.

On the drive to the region we passed through the Geographe Region and a wonderful little ruin near the town of Boyanup. We captured some images of this ruin during the day and determined we would return to “light-paint” the building and its associated trees that night.

 

Here is the ruin by day

Great Southern Region – Australia’s South West

The Great Southern Region of Western Australia’s South West contains rolling pastoral landscapes, mountain ranges, rivers and streams, and forested cliffs abutting the seemingly relentless Southern Ocean. There are also delightful cosy coves, tranquil inlets, and calm bays – it is primarily a few portions of the stunning coast that I share in this photo-blog.

 

Aptly named “Elephant Rocks.”

Kalbarri National Park, Western Australia.

If you venture or already live “Down Under” the missus and I thoroughly recommend a visit to Kalbarri N. P. – we found it to be fascinating. Hope you enjoy the photo-tour.

A reminder that my images are available for purchase (see tab at top of page).

This image is immediately after self-extraction from “quicksand” which I suggest might be a partial misnomer – a more apt name would be “extremely rapid sand”. This was my first experience with it and we both were enveloped several times!

Andrew just after extraction. The water behind my feet is from where I was “stuck.” I remained on my knees to distribute my weight and made my way out of there. The missus suffered a little worse as she is shorter than I and thus sank further, relative to leg length. Enough excitement for the day so we shot from surer footing after that.

 

The next (soon) to be published blog is from Emu Creek Station – a series of images primarily of river gums and water.
