One More College shot...and Some Nature

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Trying out the Whispering Wall

Parting Shot

Lake Hollingsworth


Louise the grackle, showing quite the attitude


  1. Wow, wonderful impressions. I like the natural bottle brush... ;-)

  2. ...and what is a whispering wall?

    1. Acoustical, arching wall. You really can whisper and be heard seventy feet away, with no loss of volume. It is amazing.

  3. Love the views of the lake and birds. The bottle brush blooms are pretty. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  4. charlie, so beautiful!! that's a great shot!!!

  5. Just spent some time enjoying your past posts that I've missed. Not only do I enjoy your nature shots, I really like your architectural shots as well. All interesting and give a great sense of being with you on your outings. P.S. in regards to your comment about being surprised at some of my 'green' shots, one reason that Utah is such a great place for landscape photogs is that we really have a great diversity of terrain, from red rock desert, to Rocky Mountain forests, to barren salt flats, etc. About the only thing we don't have is the ocean....and I do miss that a bit as I grew up in southern California close to the beach. But all in all, I can be up in the mountains with pine trees and aspen in about 15 minutes for our northern Utah home, and I can walk out my front door to red rock cliffs or take about a 40 minute to an hour drive to Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, and the Grand Canyon.

  6. The Grackle is wonderful, yes attitude ;), Heron is Bottle Brush...looks about right, cool!

  7. LOL that you name your birds! Nothing like a grackle with attitude :-)

  8. I love the expressions that birds make with their eyes and the way they tilt their heads--thanks for the lovely photos today
    enjoy the moments, di

  9. do you name all the wildlife you see.
