One of the newer roses in our yard is Flamenco.   It’s a bright beautiful rose which is always a joy to see in bloom.  This picture was actually taken last year, but I like it so much that I couldn’t resist using it.

Harrods Department Store, London

Harrods Department Store is a London landmark.  The store, often called “The World’s Leading Luxury Department Store”, is in a building which is imposing both day and night.  We explored the first floor of Harrods when we visited our daughter who was studying in London for a semester during her college career.

I got this picture, taken as a slide in 1993, when we walked past Harrods one evening at dusk.  Recently I scanned the slide and cleaned up the image.  This is the result, which I think makes a pretty picture.

When Betsy and I are at Mt. Nebo in Arkansas, we get up before dawn so we can see sights like this.  This picture was taken from Sunrise Point on the mountain looking down into the Arkansas River valley below.  What a way to start the day!  February 12, 2013.

An Experiment in Night Photography

 (This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Several years ago, while visiting Mt. Nebo State Park in Arkansas, I experimented with night photography by taking pictures from our cabin on top of the mountain of the valley below.  This is one of the results of my experiment.

My Beautiful Bride and I ave learned over the years at the beach that each sunrise has its own unique beauty.  This image was captured at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, in December 2019.

Evening Beauty

Although its been a couple of years since we’ve been to Mt. Nebo State Park in Arkansas, this photo gives you a pretty good idea why this ranks as one of our favorite places to visit.  The photo was taken behind ‘our’ cabin in the park as the sun was setting.  It’s a breath-taking sight.

Glory!

The past few weeks have been a new, and in some cases frightening, experience for most of us.  I hope all of you are staying safe and staying at home as much as possible.  These are anxious times, but they will pass.

In the midst of troubles I feel it helps to remember that there is much goodness and much beauty in the world around us.  The picture above, taken as Betsy and I enjoyed a spectacular sunset at Mount Nebo in Arkansas. shows there is indeed light and beauty in our world.
