Who says there’s nothing to do in the winter.  There are plenty of ducks on the pond.  And I’ll bet they’ll get out of the water to greet you if you bring plenty of food for a picnic.

A large park in the middle of the city.  Love it.  We need all the natural spaces we can get.  When I stayed in Tempe I decided to get up early and head on over to Papago Park in Phoenix.  A beautiful, expansive desert park.  I love watching the sun rise and found a place within the desert rocks that looked down on other parts of the park.  Sure like the perspective of height.

The Thomas Jefferson memorial, that is.  It sits in a nice little spot near the Potomac River and its tidal basin.  Just wandering down by the river I decided to roam around the memorial and soak in the ambiance and history.  I was there in the early part of the day and there were few other people there and I was able to amble around unencumbered with only my thoughts and camera.  After spending the better part of an hour in the area, I wandered away to other parts of the mall.

It was an early Sunday morning and for some reason most people in the park seemed content to not be wandering about.  Maybe they were breaking down their camp or sipping morning coffee or just getting ready to head back to city life.  Whatever the case, it seemed as if all of Yosemite was mine and a few other photographer types enjoying the immense beauty of this spectacular valley.  This particular year the mountains were overflowing with snow-pack and the runoff into rivers and waterfalls was the highest in quite some time.  There are but few words to describe this place called Yosemite.  With the wildly flowing rivers and falls, awesome is one of them.

One of the features I like best about the South are the swamps; wet, moist, mossy, thick, green, sometimes a bit eerie.  It’s probably due to the fact that they’re not found in the west and thus they’re different, unique.  Whatever the reason, the ones we went to in South Carolina and Georgia were great; perfect for walking and finding photo ops.  This one is at Magnolia Plantation near Charleston, South Carolina.

This is the oldest public Japanese tea garden in the US and is located inside Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  I’m not much of a tea drinker, but I love gardens.  I find it quite soothing in here, just being able to wander slowly, taking in the beauty.  There is an incredible fullness here and it’s all so meticulously organized, every tree and shrub perfectly in its place.
