There are at least handful of them within a hundred miles of where I live. It is always quite an experience to visit them. More so when the weather is a bit rough and there aren't many visitors around them.

https://flic.kr/p/KhHkQf | close crescent | Best viewed in lightbox  This waxing moon (as seen in northern hemisphere) was photographed from my front door. While my many attempts at photographing full moon from the same location have failed, this turned out somewhat decent. I hope to someday capture full moon...I'd be happy if I can get it half way as decent as this shot. Have tips for me? Please feel free to leave them below as a comment.

Houston Arboretum

On our last trip, we found ourselves looking for parks in Houston. Our friends came up with a trip to the Houston arboretum within Memorial Park.

Sunset at the Great Sand Dunes national Park. Lots of rain and snowfall this year, so the little stream by the dunes Is running fast.
