Just a short ride out to Lee Canyon from the Vegas Strip, and you will discover some beautiful hikes. The Lower Bristlecone Trail is an easy one, with a wide gravel path to enjoy. Along the way, I found pine trees, mountain views, fresh air, woodpeckers, pine cones, and deer. I highly recommend a drive out to Lee Canyon if you find yourself in the area.
Last weekend was spent at the Something Wicked EDM Festival in Houston. Everyone was dressed up for Halloween and out to have a good time. These photos will give you an idea of how things looked on Saturday.
When you head over to the local church after work with hopes of catching the rise of the Supermoon, but you realize that you and your camera are better suited for sunset photos. No problems, the moonrise was still pretty.
You know the kind. Those nights when you think you are cool and can search around the local church building for some eerie photo opportunities. The moon is shining brightly at first and then it seeks cover behind a blanket of clouds. You walk out to the cemetery behind the church, and then your nerves kick in, even though you are still on the paved road, but very alone. Every nighttime sound is a horror waiting to happen. Your pace quickens as you return to the parking lot for one more photo and then a quick escape to the familiarity and comfort of your vehicle. Whew! That was exciting!
I found this old gem of a structure in Bartlett Texas today. It is the First Presbyterian Church of Bartlett, and is obviously in need of repairs. According to the church records, construction of the church began on March 7, 1899. I was able to walk around and take photos of the exterior, but there was no way to get inside. The moon obliged and posed for a photo behind the bell tower.
