Scenic Photography

This page updated 26 December, 2003

I do enjoy my automatic camera. I use a Pentax IQ-Zoom 120, and some of the older photos were taken with a Ricoh. As I mentioned, sunsets and sky photos are among my favorites. Here are a few examples. Click the thumbnail to get a full-size image. If you have Internet Explorer for your browswer, press F11 to go the the full-screen mode (and F11 again to return to normal mode). This will make some of the larger pics fit your screen better. Pictures are added to this page on a regular basis.

The cactus flowers were thick for about a week early in the summer. The first two pics are from aa field north of Llano. The blooms only last one day, then shrivel as new ones sprout. The potted cactus in my yard on the right had 29 blooms this day, and 33 blooms the next.
