Salt Lake Sunset

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

I took these from the Great Salt Lake State Park, just west of Salt Lake City. I was going for some reflections, but the sunset was a little murky and unfortunately it didn't light up the Wasatch as much as I was hoping.

Little Beggar

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

This little fellow was kind enough to pose for me at a picnic area in the Point Reyes National Seashore, CA. I got the feeling he has become accustomed to handouts during the busy season.

Sleeping Beauties

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

There is a colony of sea lions that have taken up residence at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Quite the crowd pleasers I'm told, but apparently we were there at naptime.

Coastal blossoms

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

I took these at the Point Reyes National Seashore, just north of San Francisco. If you ever get the chance, you must go there. Beautiful place!

Coastal Iris. They were everywhere!

On the Nest

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

I believe this is a curve-billed thrasher. It was nesting in a very thick cactus and it did not appreciate my presence. This was the best I could get. Not much, but I liked the effect.

For Jim Taylor

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Dear Jim,
As I was walking through my dad’s woods a few weeks ago, I found myself asking, “What is it that makes Jim Taylor’s photos so good?” The composition - of course; color – yes; use of light – you bet! But it is also the artful way you coax exceptional images out of the most humble subject.

As I’m shooting I try to keep those qualities in mind, and once in a while (if I’m lucky) I get something worthy of posting. Though we have never met, you have been an influential teacher.

Thanks for all the photos you’ve posted for me in the past. Here’s one for you.
Best regards,
Christine

We visited Muir Woods National Monument at the end of March. It is a beautiful place!

Reason and Faith

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, then that of blindfolded fear. -Thomas Jefferson

Point Reyes

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Yes, Clyde we did. smile

I have over 50 photos from Point Reyes and that's only the ones I kept! Here are a few. I posted some of the wild flowers from Pt. Reyes over on the "Insects..etc" forum.
