I’m amazed how California can be so dry, but all that it takes is one rain, and the arid land turns green and explodes into wildflowers. I took this photograph just a few steps from the San Andreas Fault in Carrizo Plain. It’s a neat area.
I’d like to go back to the Serengeti someday. It had an interesting feeling there that I didn’t expect; it had a soft, warm, comforting feeling, and yet at the same time, it had a feeling of tension. It sure is a cool place. The wildlife diversity/density in east Africa is pretty amazing. I took this image on the western side of the Serengeti. The tall grass and acacia trees were all full of life at every turn.
I took this over/under water photograph in a fast-moving arctic river near the Yukon/Northwest Territory border. The water clarity in the arctic rivers was interesting; some of the rivers were completely muddy and filled with thick sediment while other rivers were crystal clear. The vegetation in this area was a combination of tundra and scrubby small deciduous trees. The area is a neat, rough landscape.
