Some Special Photos

These are just a few of my favorite photos I’ve taken over the past several months. I love to shoot the outdoors and nature. My wife and I love to hike and these are a couple of my favorites.  In the photos below, the top photo is an angry storm coming in that dropped a lot of rain in a big hurry. I was able to capture the photo before the storm hit.  The second photo taken when we were on a hike and I saw this beautiful cactus.  To do this photo justice, I decided to shoot it up close and get all of its spikey thorns just reaching out to touch someone.  Third photo was maybe a tad bit of luck and a fast shutter speed.  I could photograph these birds all day long.  Very rewarding shot, and a good fit for my “favorites” category.
