Jasper Forest

Jasper Forest, in Petrified Forest National Park:

Many of these stone tree trunk fragments reminded me of redwood trees. For some this park in Eastern Arizona is a bit off the beaten path, but worth the time if you’re in the area.
Have a Great Day!

The Subway-Zion Natl Park

A view from The Subway in Zion National Park:

No sandwiches are sold here, but the views are incredible.  For more panoramas of The Subway, visit the link in the text below the panorama.
Thanks to everyone for the kind comments posted on my last (Christmas) post.  I very much appreciated them!
Thank You!

Merry Christmas

Just a little Christmas offering:


It has been 7 years since others besides my family members started viewing these panorama.  Many of you have been receiving these email updates from early 2010.  I really appreciate each one of you for viewing and sharing these panoramas, and hope the coming year is good for you.
The Christmas video below carries a message of good will that I hope to carry in my personal life.  I hope you enjoy it regardless of your particular beliefs or convictions; it is offered in the spirit of good will:

Best Wishes!

Stars and Clouds

Stars peak through clouds above Utah Lake:


The opening view of this panorama features an Orionids Meteor, a happy accident, as I had forgotten that this meteor shower was in progress.

Some of you have wondered where I’ve been lately, and that perhaps I actually did fall off a cliff somewhere. The more boring truth is that my commercial advertising photography work has been very busy this fall, for which I am thankful.

Thanks to all of you who subscribe and share these panoramas!
