Photo of the Week!!

Hello Everyone!! Well I've decided to pick a photo for each week and see how it goes. I've picked and edited one from my recent trip to the USA. It's a photo I took in the Red Wood Forest of the lush foliage, moss, and immense trees. It was early mourning and the sun was peering through highlighting the forest. The Red Woods are spectacularly humongous!!

Philip Antonino

When I was very small I had a wonderful friend named Sheranda. She lived in my neighborhood and we played together as kids. I hadn't seen her since before grade 6 I'm thinking and she found me on Facebook recently. It was a special treat to see her again and be able to photograph her new baby, Philip Antonino! Congratulations on the new addition!

New Photos of the California Coast!

On my way back to Canada from San Francisco I drove up the coastal highway 101. It's a spectacular drive and I highly recommend it to anyone who looking for beautiful views and great food! I stopped in the small towns along the way when I got hungry to eat the fabulous seafood. The ocean was spectacular and there were huge California condors flying above in search of food. Closer to San Francisco there was a heavy fog but it generally subsided by midday as I traveled north. It created some intriguing shots of trees in a misty atmosphere though. Here are a few photos I took from the coast. They are under the new Gallery: California under Places on my website. I will keep adding more so check back.

*Death Valley*

So on my recent trip to the USA I had the opportunity to visit Death Valley in California. It was a very cool desert but the HEAT was extreme!! There are signs that tell you to turn off your air conditioning to avoid overheating your vehicle. Crazy eh! Death Valley is definitely worth the trip! There are so many interesting sites to visit and strange history. Even the towns there have appropriate names like "Furnace Creek" or "Stove Top". One of the highlights was the "Racetrack" which is a dried up lake bed in a valley surrounded by mountains. To get there you have to 4x4 across the desert terrain which was rather stressful because I was afraid I might pop a tire but I was so determined to get there I kept on going. Past the forest of tree like cactus and around every bend until finally I reached the "Racetrack". It was well worth the effort because I got some cool shots! There are rocks on the dried up lake bed that slowly move all on there own and leave long trails in the dried up mud so you can literally see where they started and ended up. Scientists are still mystified as to exactly how and when these rocks are moved. Some say winds and others aliens;P Who knows!
So check out the new gallery at www.spyd.ca called "Death Valley" but here are a few samples.
I hope to keep updating the website with more juicy photos!!
