Swamp Walk

Took a walk along a Louisiana swamp and go a few shots. Not the best, wrong time of day but it got me out for a little exercise.

A Little Macro

This little lady kept getting in the way while I was working on my porch lights. Almost got smashed a couple of times. Finally got out the D7200 and Tamron 70-300 macro lens and got a few shots. Used Photoshop to focus stack a few images to get a fairly good shot.

Snake River in Idaho

Got out of the truck for a nice long walk and some photography. Beautiful sunny day along the Snake River flowing through Idaho.

This area of lies along the Oregon trail though Idaho. Along this route in the mid 1800s approximately 400,000 settlers traveled the trail from Missouri to Oregon.

Not far from this spot is Massacre Rock, a narrow passage along the Oregon Trail where in August 1862 a wagon train was attacked by Indians ending in the death of 10 settlers. Hence the name Massacre Rock.

The rest area West of America Falls, ID offers access to the trails along the cliffs above the river. The area is teaming with wildlife, lots of birds, including Bald Eagles. A great area to take some photos and stretch your legs. Do be mindful of your step though, there are some snakes.

Gators

Out flying my Mavic Air in a Louisiana swamp and met up with this cute baby alligator. The drone didn’t seem to bother him so I got a great photo of him. He has a brother/sister with him just out of frame, I wonder where momma was? Hmm…
