Here are some photos fresh and hot from the Nikon and a 50mm lens this afternoon, zero editing, that’s why you can see a few boogers in the photos that I normally remove. Such a beautiful day today with a nice breeze and seventy-nine wonderful degrees! I have another fresh pot of my homebrew chili slow-cooking right now, yum!

Why Does It Smell Like Fish In Here?
Oh, I forgot that I baked these frozen fish sticks! For being frozen fish, the damn things are pretty darn tasty to this old bachelor’s palette! A few days ago, I bought a bag of frozen beef stew which I must say was pretty darn good for a frozen product. Are frozen foods really any good, and are they good for you? Fresh versus frozen…
Just watch how many crooked people will so easily steal this bike! Serves them right!
The Other Sunset Photos
A Halloween Sunset 10-30-2021
Mojave Desert Colors
These photos were taken in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in 2018. This area is just east of Las Vegas. Access is easy from the city by taking Lake Mead Boulevard east, you’ll drive right into the park. The photos don’t really do the beautiful colors justice. I was using the old Nikon D3300 body too. The Nikon Z6 would do a better job I’m sure.
Police Chopper Lifts Off
Changing it up a bit this morning, here’s a video I recorded at the Scenic Overlook in 2018. I don’t recall what the reason was for the chopper to be there but it’s an amazing display of how a helicopter works. I’ve flown in one many years ago in Michigan and it scared the crap out of me! It was windy, the chopper was bobbing up and down like a bobber on the water with a fish on the hook, scary! Partly sunny and 81 degrees today, another beautiful Mojave Desert day!
46 Seconds Of Windstorm
I hesitate to upload this video because it is, after all, just the wind blasting one of my palm trees! I’ve lived here for two years now, these trees have seen numerous windstorms during my tenure and still haven’t lost a single frond.
Always In My Heart
Scenes From Lovell Canyon
It’s been three years since I last visited Lovell Canyon, a very nice wildlife area. If you go east up the ridge, you will eventually fall into the Red Rock Canyon area. And I do mean fall! About 1000 feet or more to the desert floor below. This is an ancient fault line, I wish I knew the last time it shifted. Read about Lovell Canyon.
These photos have been on my desktop for too long, time to set them loose. Sunshine and 79F are on tap for Las Vegas today, damn nice weather! I hope you have a great weekend!
