My 5 Favorite Photos of 2022

It's my favorite post of the year! Happy New Year everyone!  I typically post these on Dec 31st, however since New Year's Eve fell on a Saturday this year, I thought I'd just let this post be my Picture of the Week this week as well.  Something else different for this year is a "Runner Up" gallery, full of some of the other images from this past year that I also really like - some of which I haven't published yet!  My good friend Bill is always encouraging me to share more images, so instead of my typical "Rest of the Best" image, with only thumbnails, you can click on the images to see...

Dan may or may not have an obsession with cars.  Follow along with his dream car build up; a 1967 Camaro.

The Milky Way Rising Over the Superstitions

The Lost Dutchman State Park, and the public lands surrounding it, is one of my favorite places to go while I'm out in Phoenix.  The Superstition Mountains are really interesting, and serve as a great backdrop for desert scenes.  I typically go there at least once...

Is There Anybody Out There?

As someone who is a bit of a space nerd, a visit out to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory has been high on my list for a while.  The "Very Large Array" (VLA for short) is quite the spectacle, with its collection of radio telescopes all trained up at the sky,...

Bird Skull Rock Under the Milky Way

I mentioned last week that rocks that resembled animal skulls were a theme this year and this week I'm sharing the other example.  This week's Picture of the Week features a rock my friend Mark and I refer to as simply the "bird skull rock" - hopefully for obvious...

Lizard Skull Rock

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry - Robert Burns If you've been following along the last few weeks, you'll have read how my trip out west - in the desert - was marked by rain storms, of all things.  Definitely not what I had in mind.  In fact,...

Eyes in the Desert

If you've been following along the last few weeks, you'll know that I experienced a lot of rain when I went out west this year.  As I've mentioned, my hope was that I could do a lot of night photography, but the weather dictated other plans.  It wasn't for lack of...

Stormy Desert

I mentioned last week how stormy it was during my western trip this year, and this week is a more accurate telling of that story.  As you can tell, I embraced it, and more or less went storm chasing in the evenings after work.  As a result, I definitely came away with...

Desert Sunrise

Welcome back everyone!  We're transitioning this week back stateside, but not home to East Tennessee, rather to one of my favorite regions of the US - the Southwest.  I don't know why I'm so fascinated with the desert, but I absolutely love it.  I think it's just so...

The Final Footsteps of Paul

In our travels around the world, Holly and I have traveled to religious sites of other religions, but have never had the privilege to visit sites significant to our own faith.  In Rome, however, we were finally able to change that. In my first post about our trip to...
