Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Postaweek

Going through my library of photos, I finally stumbled on what I wanted to post for the weeks challenge. There are a few of them that I like and really don’t want to eliminate any of them. What the heck I’ll post several photos!

These are a series of photos that I took one evening on the Coronado Beach in CoronadoDSC_0502 copy,Ca. We were out with friends for dinner there. After dinner we all decided to stroll along the beach area. I just happened to have my camera with me, of course I most generally do. Had a good dinner and an enjoyable evening.

Weekly Photo Challenge:Near and Far

Postaweek/Postaday

I love these challenges, it allows me the look at my photos differently. I never really thought of a lot of my photos from a different perspective as to what they could mean to different  words. So I’m having a lot of fun with these challenges. I find them provoking and of course “challenging”.

This is a photo I took in New Port,Oregon. Really clean neat town with some rolling hills,just enough to make it interesting and photographable.

It flows right down this hill into the ocean, maybe I should rephrase that, down the hill TO the ocean. I found that there was plenty to see and photograph here in New Port.

This picture was a fluke. We weren’t even suppose to be here. We stopped in Cheyenne, WY for a short lay over before we went on to Yellowstone National Park. we never made it to the park because of motor home problems and had to return to Cheyenne, where we ended up staying for two more weeks.  That gave us a chance to visit Rocky Mountain National Park.  Let me say the North America has some gorgeous National Parks. My wife and I have had the good fortune to see several of them.

This is Thomson River Gorge going to visit Rocky Mountain National Park.

This is a pearl of a beach, I have spent many days in this area. We have camped down at the Strand State Beach in Coronado,CA a few weeks at a time. One time when we were there it was Thanksgiving and we fried a couple of turkeys. My friend’s wife came out of her 5th wheel with a knife,a jar of mayo and a bag of rolls. We sliced up some of that hot turkey and made sandwiches that here out of this world.

Coronado Hotel and Beach

This just popped up on yahoo and because I spend so much time in San Diego it grabed my attention. Plus I’ve photographed this same hotel  and beach.

San Diego’s Coronado beach named the best in U.S.

CORONADO, Calif. (AP) — Like a Hollywood star, Coronado’s 1.5 mile-long beach literally sparkles, thanks to the mineral mica glinting in its sand.

This is just a partial article on Yahoo a few hours ago.

Why it is so striking to me is because I took a picture at night of the Coronado Hotel   hand held, it shows some hand shaking. This is such a gorgeous and luxurious hotel.
