Ten of My Favorite Moments

Buoyed by the warm reception by fellow Flick'r mates on two of my recent photos, the desire to revisit old photographs gained momentum, so much so that this post is about sharing my favorite memories preserved in megapixels with all of you.

2014 from Lisbon, Portugal. I returned here in April 2017 and brought friends to see this charming city.

2014 Venice. A sunset scene was a total surprise because it was the last thing I expected to enjoy while in Venice.

2015 Hume Lake, California. This scene gave my soul a little rest and comfort; hours earlier, I lost my niece to cancer.

2013 Point Reyes, California. A perennial day trip destination; this was the first and only time (so far) that we found this old boat. I still remember the my happiness when I saw this boat. It was bugging the heck out of me that every one that goes to Pt. Reyes had been posting about it. I couldn't fathom how in the world that I go regularly and I didn't see it. Until that day.

2013 Cancun. Sunset reflections. Was in Cancun for medical purpose and was relaxing in the balcony watching this scene. A therapeutic moment.

2014 Pt Pinole Regional Shoreline. Another local favorite go to place when the soul is weary of daily living.

2012 Cox Bazar, Bangladesh. Twilight moments are precious moments.

2014 Zion NP. Zion knocked my socks off!

2009 Malta. Arriving in Malta via a cruise ship. The view from the grand harbor as the boat inches its way into the port has got to be the very best scene I have ever witnessed. Jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

2014 Valley of Fire SP Nevada. Again and again I have proclaimed this place as one of my favorite places in the world.

I found more than ten moments in my life (travels or otherwise) that I cherish. I reserve the right to do a sequel *grin*.

  4. Wow, so much good stuff here I don't know where to begin! Love the Valley of Fire shot, and that's a location on my list of places to visit. Only been to Pt. Reyes once, but did manage to find and photograph the old boat. Such a cool area! The Cancun sunset is breathtaking!

  10. gorgeous series of images. Love the boat pic in CA. Bring on the sequel.

  11. Every scene is spectacular and radiate emotions of awe! I can only feel envious in all those scenes, but i am mostly thinking about that scene in Cancun as i haven't seen that kind of sunset. The color below is very much distinct because of that sky opening.
