Frozen Falls

I recently took a journey up to one of our local attractions in the San Luis Valley. This local attraction happened to be Zapata Falls. It was my first time. I didn’t really know what to expect. I have to say when I first got up there, I was a little disappointed. All I saw was this little frozen water fall.

used a cooling filter to add a little blue to the ice.

Then a family came up behind me, and climbed up the ice and into a little cave. So, I decided to follow them. Boy, was I stoked, because I found some spectacular frozen water falls.

When it gets a little warmer out I will have to return and see the water falls flowing.

Budding Photographer

My five year old is always asking me, “Daddy can I use your phone or camera to take pictures”. I love the fact she wants to take pictures. Usually the ones on my phone turn out not so good, but that’s not the point. The point is to try and develop her love of photography. Recently she used a little Cybershot camera and took the two landscape pictures. Not bad for a five year old!!!

Cherry Blossoms

When I traveled back to Washington D.C. last weekend, I was able to catch the Cherry Blossoms blooming. Its always a treat to photograph these gems. I have taken pictures of them before, but now I know what I’m doing. (Or I like to think so anyway)
