June Garden Macros

June 12, 2018

I’ve posted some new macro photos taken from my garden tonight. The colors in some of these photos are really beautiful, in my opinion. I hope to continue posting new photos like this.

Switzerland Photos (Part 2 of 2)

May 30, 2018

The second set of photo albums from last year’s trip to Switzerland have been posted. First up this time is an album on our visit to Lausanne and its surrounding areas (a nice place to visit), followed by an album about Zermatt and the Matterhorn. Enjoy!

Switzerland Photos (Part 1 of 2)

May 26, 2018

Last year, my wife and I spent two glorious weeks in Switzerland. While there, we hiked over 90 miles and visited a number of incredible places. We both fell in love with the country, and we intend to return in the future. If I had enough money, I’d even consider living there (though the cost of living is ridiculous)!

I’ve finally posted photos from this trip to my photos site. The first two albums cover our visits to Luzern and Wengen. Wengen is my top spot in Switzerland, and is perhaps the most beautiful place on Earth.

I will post two more albums in the next week or so, covering the second half of our trip. Stay tuned!

Linked Photo Albums

May 12, 2018

I’m trying something new on my photos site. Starting with the NC Arboretum album, photos will now be hosted at Google Photos. This has a number of benefits:

  • Users can comment on photos
  • I can now embed videos in the album
  • Nicer viewing experience on all devices
  • Simplifies the import process for me

New albums will still show up on my photos site, but they will now be links to the external albums. The RSS feed for albums should still work to track what I post.

I’m not yet sure how to handle the “favorites” section of the photos site. I’d like to be able to point to favorite photos as I take them, but how to do that is still to be determined.

Let me know what you think of this new setup. I’m looking forward to giving it a try, and I have a backlog of photo albums to post.

Hammocks Beach State Park Photos

January 1, 2018

I’ve just posted some photos from a visit to my final North Carolina state park back in October of 2016. This album has been long overdue, but I’m finally getting around to it.

I hope to post more photos in the coming weeks, but I’m debating how best to do that (I have a large backlog of stuff that never made it here). I’ve been using Google Photos as my posting ground in recent times, and I haven’t seen a good way to make those photos public.

Lumber River State Park Photos

December 20, 2016

In early October, I visited Lumber River State Park, the penultimate state park in my quest to visit them all. Naturally, I took my camera, and these photos were the result. Sadly, this small park offers lackluster hiking.

Mount Rainier Photos

December 14, 2016

The final photo album from our trip to Washington state is finally up. This last album focuses on Mount Rainier, which is easily one of the most beautiful national parks I’ve ever been to. The hiking here was fantastic, even though it was tough on the old knees!

Mount Saint Helens Photos

December 2, 2016

We visited Mount Saint Helens while in Washington state, and had some of the best hiking conditions while there. If you ever visit Washington, I highly recommend visiting this amazing place.

Lake Crescent Photos

November 28, 2016

Our last stop in Olympic National Park was Lake Crescent, a remarkably blue lake with some really neat things to see. I have two more photo albums to post from our Washington visit, both of which are really neat!
