Weekly Photo Challenge – Descent

On the Descent

On the Descent

As a scuba diver, the very word “Descent” means excitement and discovery, for one must descend into the depths to appreciate the undersea world. I chose a shot for today’s challenge that exemplifies what one might see at the beginning of the descent on a boat dive. Here are some Chubs hanging out underneath the Sun Dancer II on our recent trip to Belize. It’s always fun and quite common to see schools of fish circling under a large boat. And yes, the large opaque structure in the upper left side of the shot is the hull of the Sun Dancer II.

Here’s a shot of the San Geronimo Church in Taos, New Mexico. I decided to create a book cover for my submission this week. Just fantasizing about having a coffee table picture book with my name on it!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Dreamy

Half Moon Caye

Half Moon Caye

During our recent scuba adventure aboard the Sun Dancer II, we stopped for a short land excursion to Half Moon Caye. During our morning visit to the island, we saw iguanas, red-footed boobies and a lovely stretch of white sandy beach. We enjoyed seven wonderful days of diving on the Lighthouse Reef Atoll – about 50 miles east of the mainland of Belize and Half Moon Caye rests on the southeast side of the atoll. Here’s my dreamy shot of the beach, palm trees and Peter gazing out to sea while the Sun Dancer II patiently awaits our return.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs

Welcome to St. Charles

Welcome to St. Charles

On our road trip from Atlanta to Fort Collins in August, my sister Becky and I stopped in St. Louis for some sightseeing. Here’s a shot of a lamp post with sign in historic St. Charles, Missouri – site of the state’s first capital. We had a great day exploring shops and galleries on Main Street – a brick covered street lined with late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century buildings right alongside the Missouri river. St. Charles is also the site where Lewis and Clark left on their grand expedition.
