Favorite Photo, July 14

Janae and Doris, Fremont California. July 14, 2012.

It was a very busy week in Fremont California. Doris, my mother-in-law, turned 90 years old and birthday preparations were in full swing. At the end of a long day we were headed back to the house. Our daughter Janae walked her grandmother Doris up to the front door. I grabbed my camera and snapped this image. It is one of my all time favorite images, and one of my two most favorite photos for this date.

Snowy Egret, Fremont California. July 14, 2016.

No matter the year, we are pften in California in mid-July. And I usually find time to head out t one of my favorite photo places, the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Fremont. On this particular morning I found this Snowy Egret feeding and captured this moment. This is one of my all time favorite wildlife images and my other most favorite image for this date.

Gates of the Valley, Yosemite National Park, California. July 14, 2006.

Bright and early one morning, long before sunrise, one of our sons and I left for Yosemite National Park to spend the day. This is one of my favorite images from that day. The sun was setting and we were at Gates of the Valley (also known as Valley View).

Yosemite is one of the most spectacular places on the planet and a great place to create images.
