I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Randy and I took a Short Trip

Randy and I decided to try and see a bit of what the high water had done around here. We didn't go to places that were decimated, we didn't want to be in the way for one, for two if I was going to be there I wanted to help not gawk. So I just went to some of our usual places and snapped a few shots. There are many more, I'm only posting a few, it has been a long long week.



While we were parked across this bridge entry, a large Ford 4-wheel drive came along, we moved he drove over it.
I was paranoid walking on it, it was sinking and giving with just my weight. They way it sank down with that truck was scary beyond words.

Bridge just before Jasper Park. Water was very high, last time we were out we drove where the stump is and parked where there is 4 ft of water now.

    1. I so agree Corinne, being raised next to the ocean was one of the best lessons on humanity in the strangest ways. The nature of the beast, beautiful, calming and destructive, every day was different, not unlike ourselves as you said.

  7. Hello Jan.
    Awesome photos, but Corinne does have a point...nature can be both beautiful & oh so destructive.

  10. A bayou feel, some of these pictures.
    And a suggestion of turbulence, like the soul.
    The tunnel reminds me of the dark night
    moments we pass through before seeing
    the light again.
