The Russian River meanders through Sonoma county in California, meeting the Pacific Ocean at Jenner.  Before it gets there it travels through a lot of wine country.  Many a vineyard pulls water out of its flow to irrigate their vines.  In fact, the Russian River appellation is a well known region of luscious California wines.  On this day I was out playing with my camera, visiting some of the many great wineries and enjoying the crispness of the day.

It’s spring.  The wild flowers and fruit trees are coming alive.  So are the bees who pollinate them.  My wife loves to tend bees and we have a couple of captured swarm hives.  A swarm happens when a hive gets too big for its hive and half the hive leaves with another queen to form a hive of its own.  They will often congregate on a low branch or house eve near their former hive and a good bee keeper can capture the whole of it and transfer it to a new hive space at home.  We have two!

The Colorado state senate that is.  Located in the state capitol building in Denver, this is quite a building.  Relatively small in size it’s easy to navigate and explore.  Not many people around.   Must have been during a political break.  Sometimes it seems like most politicians are on a continuous political break.  Good thing the building’s still there to marvel at.

Upon arrival at our hotel in Giza, a friend and I immediately went exploring.  We walked up the hill toward the pyramids we could see the tops of and Wow!  What a sight!  We found someone who could lead us out through the gate.  Yes, it’s highly regulated yet anything can be negotiated with a bit cash.  We were both extremely excited and in awe of the grandeur of what we saw.  This is one of the first unobstructed views we had.

Not the TV show.  It’s this couple sitting comfortably on their bench looking out over Monterey Bay.  Driving out past the old town center you come to a wonderful little park, sitting along the bay.  A sweet little spot to watch the waves and people; to meet friends and catch up on one another’s lives; to sit with your partner, just enjoying one of life’s vistas.

I was not prepared for this!  Snow in the desert.  Cold.  Blustery.  I had the wrong gloves and my hands were freezing.  Yet… it was beautiful beyond any expectations I had.  I love when the weather presents a photogenic depth otherwise missing from an already beautiful scene.  This storm didn’t last all that long.  Maybe half an hour.  But, I could have reveled in the conditions for hours, comfortable or not.
