Canada Day fireworks in Banff, Alberta:
This shot was taken from the Banff Avenue Bridge, with a few seconds’ display reflected in the Bow River.
So, it’s been a busy month for me. Did some travel, took lots of photographs, got ready for this month’s solar eclipse.
Oh, and this site got hacked (while I was on the road, of course).
I’m pretty sure everything’s now back in working order again, but if anything misbehaves for you, please drop me a line via the contact form.
Meanwhile, prepare for a backlog of material to be unleashed…
A carving, seen near the top of the Great Pyramid in the ancient Maya ruins of Uxmal:
A fisheye view of Echo Canyon in Zion National Park, seen from under “Weeping Rock:”
This scene, BTW, is just a taste of the attractions in Zion. The place can get a bit crowded during the summer, but a shuttle bus service runs up and down the canyon, and many impressive sights are just a short hike away from a shuttle stop.
A quick shot of (wild)life from Florida’s Myakka River State Park, as an alligator heads out into the lake, looking for lunch:
I took this shot from a tour boat the park runs — I’d absolutely recommend it if you’re ever in the “neighborhood” (but get there early, tickets for the boats tend to sell out early in the day).
