The water along the beach at St. John Island was very shallow and warm. We'd find a lot of black-tip sharks swimming around. One is pictured here. It's easy to confuse them with other objects when they are so young.
The water at the beach on Saint John is amazing. The beautiful blue sky and vibrant water.
This is just a photograph of the water and land at St. John Isand.
The trees were red, and orange, the grass was brown and orange, and the late afternoon sun cast an orange glow on everything.
Fall arrived early to Shenandoah National Park. The leaves and grasses were already turning from their bright colors to brown. The sun was setting and casting a very warm orange glow which amplified the already browning growth.
This is the ridgeline of the Shenandoah National Park. The trees this fall were thick and veyr color
This is a little island in the center of one of the ponds at Claude Moore park. This morning the snow was freshly fallen, and there was a mist in the air giving everything a soft white touch.

I just saw this poor twisted cedar and had to take a photo. It was a breath taking view out on a small rock outcropping, and this poor cedar tree did all it could to grow.
This is another section of the White Oak Canyon fall. This section was like a small cove that you can look down on from above. The cove was in shadow but the many colors of leaves created a warm cozy feel.

After torrential rains, flooded streets, and swollen creeks, the water rushes down through Great Falls. There was so much water, the falls looked more like rapids

On the route to Seward from Homer there are endless scenes of rolling hills, mountains, and lush forests.
On my first day of outing, I drove into Seward to camp. Seward is a small town, like most in Alaska, and it is located on Resurrection Bay. In this photograph, I was lucky to suddenly have a bald eagle fly into the photograph.
After visiting the Arctic Circle Trading Post, I headed back down to Fairbanks. The scenery along side all of the Alaskan roads is always amazing. I was taken in by the dark black pool of water reflecting the amazing color of the fall leaves.
The park road inside Denali is only paved for several miles. On my first day I took a quick trip up the section of park road that guests are allowed to drive on.
This is the view from the top of the Mount Healy trail. The top offers a great view of the valley below. Even here, more blueberry bushes cover the top of the mountain. I stopped here to have my lunch and enjoy the view before heading back down the trail.
The top of the Mount Healy trail offers stunning 360 degree views of the valleys and surrounding mountains. A very rewarding trip. The variety of colors along the landscape are breathtaking.
The shuttle bus stops at Toklat river to give riders a bathroom break, and an opportunity to take photographs of the Toklat river.
