Sunset Landing

It looked as though this balloon would land right on me as it came down. The skilled pilot dropped it just in front of me and than took a big hop and dropped about 40 yards behind me. It wasn't the most graceful of landing but provided a great picture opportunity. Some edits were done to bring out the color of the balloon.


I hiked down to take these shots, while my wife hiked to the top of Diamond Head crater to get a different prospective.

Romance Is In The Air

Boat Harbor

Does anyone what to take a "...three hour tour"? I'll be Skipper, you be...?

Arachnid 5 of 5

Saving the best for last, this B-I-G spider really creeps me out. Brightly colored, three to four inches in length and a web as big as a house! Lets just say, I will not be walking through the sagebrush and high weeds near the lookout points and roads on Antelope Island in the dark. I don't want to pick up any hitch-hikers!

Sunset In Hawaii

Looking for a beautiful sunset to watch? May I suggest the Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii as a good spot to relax and watch the sun go down. Be sure to take someone you love with you, it more romantic that way!

Arachnid 3 of 5

Orange and white are the team colors for this spider! This guy/gal is between two and three inches from leg to leg. One of the bigger spiders of the day but not the biggest.

Panoramic View

Arachnid 2 of 5

Location, location, location is a concept understood by the littlest creatures of the world. I like the colors behind this web.

Arachnid 1 of 5

Hanging by a thread.

Afraid of spiders? Me too! The bigger they are the s-c-a-r-i-e-r they get! This spider has spun a web the size of your dinner plate! In fact, all the spider pictures I will be posting have very large webs. Their webs span across walking paths, between large sage brush bushes about three or more feet apart, and even between dead tree branches. Spiders are creepy, but they create delicate webs of death worthy of its capture. As a photo and food! Enjoy!
