Roman Bridge 1Roman Bridge 1Córdoba, Spain. It seemed that wherever I was looking I was finding photographic possibilities in this fascinating historic city. I wandered across to the other side of the river, and was intrigued by the Roman Bridge from this view.

Although it was the middle of the day and the light was strong, a time usually not best for photography, I liked the strength of the stone and the contrast of the clouds and sky.

Niagara FallsNiagara FallsAmerican Falls, facing Goat Island. Niagara Falls, New York.

I was camped nearby, and spent a couple of chilly days exploring the falls. The falls are an impressive site, made more enjoyable because the weather kept away the hordes of tourists.

Cape Cod SunriseCape Cod SunriseBirds on sandbar at sunrise, Head of the Meadow Beach. Cape Cod National Seashore, Massachusetts. I was driving around New England in search of beautiful fall foliage. I got a bit sidetracked, and ended up by the water. I camped near here and got up before sunrise to photograph this calm scene by the sandbar.

A stunning example of Mudejar architecture that was originally a mosque, this incredible structure was spared when the Catholic Monarchs took over southern Spain. Instead, a Catholic cathedral was added on to the existing building and is in use to this day.
