Coots and Turtles

I was wondering why there were so many coots all huddled together as I approached. Someone had put down something for the birds to eat which is very much against park rules, shame on them! But I did get some decent close-up photos via the Sony RX100 Mark7, the Nikon stayed home this trip. This little bugger works so well that I’m almost tempted to use it exclusively but that wouldn’t last. It was 70 degrees and breezy today and I felt cold!

Barely Processed

Here are some leftover photos from several days ago at Floyd Lamb Park. As the title says, I did a very tiny bit of processing on these photos, they are almost as they were right out of the Nikon. It’s been another beautiful day in the valley with sunshine and low 70s. You can get your daily Las Vegas forecast here, haha!

An other Visit to Downtown Summerlin, Three

This is the next set of ten photos from yesterday in beautiful Downtown Summerlin, I hope you like this one as well. The next windstorm is set to begin any moment now, I read about its approach yesterday.

My phone just gave me a message that it’s coming with gusts to fifty miles per hour. I’ve seen the wind gust to sixty miles per hour before, my house starts creaking and cracking when those gusts come.

A Pseudo Sunset

Last eve’s sunset was nothing spectacular but this is what I captured. The photo of the woman fireman and truck was taken on the side of an elementary school, the artist did a darn good job of honoring our local heroes, heroes that I thank every time I get the chance. The palm tree photo is leftover from the other day. Today’s forecast is for 86 degrees and sunshine, another beautiful day in Las Vegas Valley. These photos were minimally processed.

A Short Visit to The Park

It is so beautiful outside today that I decided to head back to the park for some bird photos again. I was a bit disappointed though as there weren’t many birds there in terms of species, mostly ducks, geese, and plenty of coots. The turtles were a nice surprise though, I thought they were Snapping turtles but they look more like Painted turtles basking in the warm noon sunshine. My sister and I had turtles as pets when we were children.
