Fly Silhouette On Palm Leaf

photograph of a fly's shadow from the underside of a palm leaf

I saw this fly walking along a palm leaf and decided to try out some macro shots.  I wasn’t happy with any of the more traditional photos I took but liked this one, taken from the underside of the leaf.


Evening At Grand Prismatic Spring

photograph of the board walk around Grand Prismatic Spring at Yellowstone National Park

The sun hung low in the sky as I made my way toward the Grand Prismatic Spring, in Yellowstone National Park.  I liked the strong contrast of the sun reflecting off the water and the silhouettes of the mountains and other park visitors.

photograph of a suburban street in the early morning fog

The trees, silhouetted by early morning fog, make the houses seem small and almost insignificant.  A neighbor’s porch lights offer the only evidence anybody else might be awake.  Within an hour this scene will be transformed into a more familiar arrangement.  It might be months or even a year before it looks like this again.
