Road to Nowhere


This is another shot from my recent road trip out west. This lonely road is White Pine County Road 16, which runs from US 50, just south of Ely, Nevada, off toward Hamels Peak and Red Butte.

South Dakota Summer


This is a view of the Missouri River in central South Dakota, taken way back in 2009. Truly wide open spaces.

Crab Rock


This is a view of part of the Crab Rock, just west of Garibaldi, Oregon, at the entrance to Tillamook Bay. A fishing boat very courteously posed for the shot.

Beverly Beach


This is another shot of the Oregon coast. This is at one of my favorite spots, just north of Newport, at the mouth of Spencer Creek in Beverly Beach State Park. That's the Yaquina Head Light on the horizon.

Desert Wind Farm


Wind Farms are very much part of the scenery where I live in east-central Illinois. It was no surprise to see a wind farm in other parts of the country, but this one in eastern Nevada is awfully far from any kind of a population center. I guess it all flows into the national grid, so location isn't crucial. This photo was taken east of Ely. That's Taylor Peak in the background.
