​In March of 2016 I had a conference in Las Vegas, NV.   Since Valley of Fire State Park is only about 45 minutes north of there, I couldn't resist the temptation of spending some time in the park.  While the whole park is an awesome place, I decided to focus on the north end of the park, which I consider to be the most colorful.  These photos are from the Crazy Hill, Pink Canyon and Fire Wave areas.

​I planned my spring trip to Great Smokey Mountain National Park to coincide with the dogwood bloom.  They did not disappoint!  There were plenty of other wildflowers in bloom as well.  This place was a photographer's dream.

A few photos from the summer of 2016 in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Always looking for color, it is logical that I turn to flowers in the spring and summer.
Spent about an hour photographing these swans weren't camera shy.  They actually swam closer to me when they noticed me on the side of the pond!  

The egret was standing on some rocks at a base of a dam.

Mother nature wasn't too kind to us on our Yellowstone trip this year.  We had several days with very gray, drab skies.  We were treated to some nice sunrises/sunsets, however.  Still did okay with wildlife photography despite the gray days.  Glad we included the Tetons and National Elk Refuge in this trip.  I am already making plans to just go and spend time in that area alone in the future.
