I didn't get to do as much photography as I'd have liked this past fall/winter; but I did make a short trip to New Mexico last month to do some shooting at White Sands National Monument. You can click here to see the images.
While visiting family in Longview over Thanksgiving we took some family photos (minus Heather & Gina who were unfortunately sick). I also took some photos of my nieces while visiting in Frisco. Click here or on the image above to view the galleries.
It's been a couple years since we've visited Garner State Park, but we got to go camping there a couple weeks ago. Color was a bit spotty overall, but nice in some spots. I've posted some landscape images from our trip.
Well it's been a while since I posted anything here. I didn't really do any photography over the winter, instead keeping busy with work and getting back into inline speedskating.
I did get a chance to do some photography during the spring, including a short trip to Joshua Tree National Park. I've also updated the Glenwood Cemetery gallery with a few images from this year (newest ones are at the top). And over at Majestic Landscape I've added a few new images to the portfolio.
We actually just got back from a trip to the San Juan Mountains in Southwest Colorado, which has become one of our favorite summer destinations. I should get some snapshots and landscape images from that trip up in the next week or so.
Here are some landscape images from our recent trip to the Sierra Nevada. It wasn't a banner year for autumn color, but the weather was nice and the views were amazing. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
Heather and I went to Calfornia in October for some hiking and photography in the Sierra Nevada Mountains along the Hwy 395 corridor. There was still snow on the ground from the previous week's storm when we arrived, although much of it gradually melted as the week went on. We were hiking in 8-10" of snow on Monday and Tuesday, but by the end of the week most of the trails were clear. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
Heather and I decided to get away for a short trip in July, to the mountain town of Silverton in Southwest Colorado's San Juan Mountains. It was just an extended weekend (leave Friday morning, come home Monday night); but it was nice to get away from the oppressive Texas heat to enjoy some fresh mountain air, along with some hiking and photography.

I actually posted this gallery a little while back, but forgot to do the blog post. These are some images I took of my nephews Thomas, Joshua, and Samuel while visiting back in the spring.. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
For the second part of our recent vacation in Arizona, we went to Sedona. What's interesting about this location is that while the red rock formations are similar to what you can find in northern AZ or southern Utah, Sedona is a much greener place, with forests of pine, oak, and maple trees as well as lush vegetation along the creeks. We hiked some great trails there, including Sterling Pass and the West Fork of Oak Creek. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
For vacation this spring, we spent a week in southern/central Arizona. We started with visits to Saguaro National Park (near Tucson), and the Superstition Wilderness (west of Phoenix). After that we moved on to Sedona (pictures to come). Our trip timing was a little off; we were a few weeks late for the wildflower blooms, and a few weeks early for the cactus blooms (except some of the ocotillos).

I went to San Antonio back in February to photograph the missions. Aside from a visit to the Alamo back in high school I'd never been to any of the missions, so it was something new to see & photograph. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
Been meaning to get these poster for a while but have just been a slacker. Here are some family pictures of the Turner clan from back during the holidays. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
