Neah bay.........in Washington state...
Drab morning in September...clam-studded shore rocks...silence punctuated by the cacophony of gulls and crows....battalions of kelps floating on the calm water....

Reflection: Reminiscing trips...

Lately, situation has changed for me....I am no more free-bird, but a 9-5 robot..I am not complaining a bit for it, as I was in dire need of a job, and I love my work...but its not that I don't miss roaming in the sun, and occasional holidays without the issues of begging for leave..........
Some pictures from my past trips......
Sierra in autumn........

Snow-coated aspens..

On the high altitude Bristlecone pine forest...talk of silence!

Spring in Zion National Park........

Autumn in Olympic National Park.....vicinity of Hoh rainforest...

Pretty tree in Flagstaff........

Land of 'big sky' Montana...

Mono lake...

Bryce National Park..
 A valley in Mount Palomar ....

A giant sequoia in Sequoia National Park.......

Place: Irvine neighborhood walk.........

Once every weekend, I make it a point to walk in my neighborhood......watching the change in season, and the response of the plants and fauna......and the transition elates me..



Spotted this beautiful bee hive on a fig tree.........listened to the humming.....

California peppers are blooming in zillion clusters....reminds of the neem blossoms in India, native country.........
