Today a friend mentioned how one desert scene I captured looked more industrial, and that was part of the reason I did not post it at first. I feel like only the beautiful nature scenes are worth posting, but the manufactured components in the desert have been there decades before my birth, so I always grew up looking at the large pylons connecting power lines between the mountains and the desert. As a kid, I used to think of large pylons as wearing long full skirts and funny large hats.
A large coulter pine cone with sap dripping off the the scales.
I do not take many portraits, but I captured some pictures of my niece just resting during a hike.
It was quite difficult to film the ducks with the gusty wind gushing into my face since I forgot to bring a jacket on my walk, but I did put together a short video.
