Picture Kaleidoscope 5/4/16

Morning!

The weather here has been flip flopping like mad. But it has made for some gorgeous sunrises! 🙂

Like melting butter!

Building storms. Wind’s been pretty strong.

Sky blanket! (Windows are dirty. 🙁 )

An even fluffier blanket!

Love the color layers. (Window still dirty. Come on guys! Clean this thing!)

Roiling cloud bank! Like for an alien invasion? 😛

 

Storms are a coming!

As darkness falls….

Love the way the light shifts all over the place.

Alright, I’ll quit torturing you now. 😛 Have a great day!

Greetings!

Sharing my own stuff this week. 🙂

Is this not the cutest thing ever? So cute!

Sunrise season is back!

Another odd unintended effect that came out looking neat! (And it looks like I have myself on square setting. DOH)

Looks very sharp?

Very unusual clouds on this day. Almost looks like chainmail!

Gorgeous blooms, but they go so quickly! Glad I caught them this year. 🙂

Hit the jackpot this morning! Look at those colors!

Works even better when I’m not in the car. 😛 Aren’t those purples lovely?

Softer hues on the left side. 🙂

More pics in the album, if you want to see more. Feel free to comment or add a rating.

Have an awesome day!

Morning!

Running late… as usual!  :mrgreen:

I love this kind of thing. They ball at the top changes colors! Taken at Wasabi and Wok. (Yummy food!)

And nothing says Happy Chinese New Year like a cute bamboo set. 🙂 Taken at Wasabi and Wok.

Cool kit car I saw over the weekend! More pics of it at the album.

Fluffy skies!

Lots of pink that morning. 🙂

Kind of a neat effect on this one, no?

Unintended outcome but looks rather cool! But then, I’m biased. 😛

Sunset!

Nature’s contrast. She does paint beautiful pictures. 🙂

I’ll let you off the hook… for now! Bwahahahaha!

Have an awesome day!

Morning!

This week has seemed real hard for some reason. Huh.

 

Etna Power by Nunzio Santisi at Earthshots.org – WOW! Nature is amazing! Mr. Santisi has other landscapes, macro, and more at this site. Nice work!

Another unusual shot! Fighting and Yelling by David Hua at Earthshots.org. He has lots of lovely animal photography at his site.

 

Hidden Garden by Perri Schelat at Earthshots.org – Perfect scene for a romance or fantasy no? 🙂 Lots of lovely landscapes at his site. Sweet!

I Waited for 117 Hours in -50°C Temperatures to Snap These Polar Bear Photos article and photography by Daisy Gilardini at PetaPixel. That’s dedication! She’s got a ton of bear pics and cold environ pics at her site as well. Brrrr.

Morning!

Running late as my back muscle continues to be a naughty spoiled brat. *sigh*

Cloud tidal wave! Look at the horizon.

(It’s rather sad that now that we’re in a tall office building giving me a better vantage point for taking some cool pics, the lights and the windows themselves botch the opportunity) 🙁

The sky has been looking very dirty of late. (The reflection of the window make the pic look put together like a puzzle. No?)

Sunrise!

Different angle, same sunrise.

A gorgeous sunset. Too bad the colors get washed out due to the camera.

This one is slightly better. Gives it a little of a spooky feel.

This is a lot of clouds for Texas. 🙂

Have a great day!

Picture Kaleidoscope 12/2/15 – Puerto Rico Edition #2

Greetings!

I was able to upload all my pics of Puerto Rico from the trip in November.

While still a work in progress with regards to moving them into sub folders, I figuired I’d share now anyway. 🙂

The album software is Piwigo. Still trying to set up all the options. The Panoramic pics won’t show, so I still need to see if I can fix that.

Main Album is Puerto Rico. This one contains pics with no specific locations but also has unsorted pics from other locations I’ve yet to move to their sub folders.

Sub folders:

Caguas – where my uncle lives.

El Morro (Most of the pics for El Morro are still in the main folder. Doh!) – Spanish Fort in San Juan

El Yunque – National Rain Forest

Guajataca – city in the northeast – we stopped by the beach there.

Hope you enjoy them!

Picture Kaleidoscope 11/25/15 – Puerto Rico Edition

Morning!

Figured I’d start sharing my Puerto Rico pics. Will be setting up a gallery for them all, but it’s not ready yet. These are all phone camera pics. The gillion others were with my camera. So expect all sorts of photography mayhem soon.

Heh heh heh

Puerto Rico – a property of the US. Only need a drivers license to go there. Currency is the US Dollar. Main language is Spanish.

View of a little island we spotted from the plane.

Amazing skies. Clouds are the main thing you miss when you move away from PR.

Panorama from my uncle’s house in the mountains.

More views from his porch.

He has a set of  Hibiscus bushes as a partial fence.

I love the flowers from these bushes. Always make me think of home.

View from the balcony of the condo we got to stay in overnight.

Panorama from the top of the 1st viewing tower at El Yunque – PR’s protected rain forest.

Pano of the other side on the tower.

Pano at El Morro. Spanish fort in San Juan. All the pink shirts are students on a field trip.

Different pano view from the fort.

View from El Morro looking out. Huh, something happened as this bugger looks stitched! lol.

These are Quenepas. I’d not had some in 20 years! Last two times I’d made it home, they’ve not been in season. Ran across some when we went south. YAY! You bite the green to peel off the top. Then you use the bottom half as a cup. The fruit strands are stuck to a large seed. You put it in your mouth and suck off the strands. So good!

More torture to come later. 🙂
