#171 The Long Road

It’s an outstanding cliché; however, I find it very difficult to resist walking out into the middle of a long and aimless road, sitting down cross-legged, and taking a photo. Death Valley is full of long and aimless roads, such that it really is a great surprise when you finally end up somewhere. Camera stats:…

#170 Wandering Wife

Despite the heat, once we were out of the car, there was no stopping my wife. While I don’t condone losing your wife in the desert, if you do, you may be surprised as to where she turns up. My wife finally turned up atop a tiny hill amongst some very lovely rocks. After politely…

#169 A Stroll Through Death Valley

My wife and I have recently embarked on a bit of a road trip around some of the finest national parks in North America. Our tour started in Death Valley, and it met all our expectations – big, dry and unforgivingly hot! By 5pm the temperature had dropped to a mere 40oC, affording my wife…

And do you blame him – he’s found himself a great tree, got himself a nice chunk of bread, and doesn’t have a care in the world. Camera stats:…

#164 Waterwall

We’ve lived in Houston for over two years now, and despite driving passed it many times, this was our first visit to the Waterwall. I guess the visit of my mother-in-law prompted us to get out a see parts of the city we’ve never really paid attention to. Here’s my wife and her mother braving…

#163 Nigel the Cat

This is Nigel, one of three resident cats at the Sage Hill Inn, West Texas. He was a friendly chap, though our relationship soured when he tried to jump on the breakfast table and steal my breakfast sausage. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 70 mm | f/2.8 | 1/320 secs | ISO 400
