Random Photos

Here are a bunch of random photos. Feel free to reload the page to see some more!

A random taste of photos:
Tall tufa tower at Mono Lake. The stagnant green water of a salt marsh reflects the boardwalk bridge leading to a colorful bank.  This photo was taken by Geneva Hudspeth and put in the Creative Commons with her permission. Shadows of two people on a bridge reflect in murky green water.
A vacant paper wasp nest held in my fingertips. The nest is constructed of open hexagonal cells in which the young develop. A garden of succulent plants overlook the ocean in Laguna. A wall of wine bottles.
The still, murky water of a salt marsh. This building reminded me of an old decrepit church. (It was probably an emergency snow cabin or something.) Natural CO2 outgassing from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s. The gasses become concentrated to deadly levels in enclosed structures such as cabins. Looking up at a grove of tall trees.
Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico. Many caprocks are visible here. Yellow wildflowers (and some sort of flying insect) at Mono Lake. A cyclist reflected in the water of a salt marsh rides across the horizon.
Palm trees against a clear blue sky. Vegetation surrounds a mossy rock. Tufa towers at Mono Lake.
White clouds in a brilliant blue sky over a hill in Pacheco State Park, California. A cyclist reflected in the water of a salt marsh rides across the horizon. A dead windblown tree near Mammoth Lakes, California.
Purple wildflowers brighten a fallen log at Pacheco State Park in California. Two white mushrooms in green grass. Giant yellow flower on a zucchini plant.
Sap stalactites dripping from a tree limb, with a blurred green background. A large gray and silver koi fish in a shallow green pond. Wailua River.
A strangely shaped tufa tower at Mono Lake. Green tree-dotted hills converge to form a small stream valley in Pacheco State Park, California. Bright orange California poppies.
The still, murky water of a salt marsh. A live cicada on my house. An empty snail shell impaled on a stick and covered with spider webs.
