downriver (colour and b&w)

the lower falls trail of letchworth state park essentially begins at the ‘127 steps’ that lead you lower into the genessee river gorge. once at the bottom of the stairway, the trail splits. to the right will take you right to the falls (as per the previous image post: the lower falls) while to the left will take you towards a bridge and the river itself. this is a downriver view at some point along the ‘left’ trail.

boulder on the trail

Boulder On The Trail

my very first excursion in st. john’s, newfoundland was a visit to signal hill national historic site of canada. i spent a few hours there hiking the north head trail from the top (at the parking lot) to north head at the entrance of st. john’s harbour. it was mid afternoon when i got started; so the light was not ideal for photography. the trail affords fantastic sights of the atlantic ocean – thankfully i was not too late to take in the few icebergs dotting the horizon. also great views of fort amherst and the st. john’s city harbour can be seen from various vantage points.

i elected not to do the entire 1.7km trail, but rather returned back to the top from north head, basically the same way i came. i spotted this boulder and knew there was a photograph there somewhere… the structure in the upper left of the frame is the cabot tower.

Overlooking The Canyon

truly a dream come true, visiting the grand canyon… not off the photographic bucket list yet though – i was largely disappointed with my grand canyon photographs. i shall make it back there one day!

located on the south rim, here you have desert view watchtower (aka indian watchtower at desert view) overlooking the canyon on a late afternoon.

clouds over the port

Clouds Over The Port

clouds, clouds and more clouds! shortly upon my arrival to trinidad and tobago, this was the first shot i wanted to get… but every time i went, there were scarcely any clouds in the sky. that was in february 2013 when i came for a visit. the dry season was still going strong and for 2 weeks i did not see a single drop of rain – just magnificent blue skies!

upon my return in july, when i had finally made the long anticipated move to t&t, the wet season was in full swing and indeed there were more clouds in the sky and we indeed saw rain on an almost daily basis – kind of like you would get in south florida, for those of you familiar with those short bouts of rain…

in any event, here we have a panoramic of greater port of spain, from the lady young lookout above the city.

tree by the volcano

Tree By The Volcano

heading north on highway 89 out of flagstaff, my final destination was page, arizona. shortly after starting out there was mention of the sunset crater volcano national monument along the road. i took a turn off and ended up here with this interesting-looking tree, with the volcano beyond it and a smattering of clouds off to the left…

“did you know? sunset crater was nearly dynamited in 1929, to create a landslide for the hollywood movie “avalanche”. local citizens were outraged and lobbied for its protection. the result was establishment of sunset crater national monument in 1930. “volcano” was added to the name in 1990.” – national park service
