Geminids 12-13-06420 viewsI had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute in an attempt to catch a meteor. This was in the evening and the radiant was still near the Eastern horizon. The meteor can be seen in the upper left quadrant of the photo. It's trajectory is near horizontal to the horizon.
These images also appear in the WeatherCam Favorites section.

Sundown Dunes586 viewsThe setting Sun was casting an orange hue on the Sand Dunes at Dumont. Dumont is located 30 miles North of Baker CA near the Southern tip of Death Valley. It was a windy day and the winds in the upper atmosphere were affecting the clouds. I m not sure I would classify this cloud as Lenticular but it was getting close. Taken 3/25/06.

A Bad Day Fishing457 viewsThey say a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work. The local fishermen have returned from their morning catch. Probably a good time to go get some Fish Taco's.

Tampico Trauma806 viewsThis is the Old Harbor at San Felipe. Located some 120 Miles below the border in Baja California, it is one of my favorite camping spots. The fishermen used to sail into and out of the Harbor only at High Tide when the harbor would fill with water. They now have a New Harbor just South of Town. Taken 2/21/06

Thank You474 viewsSigns of appreciation, like this one at the top of Lake Avenue, were popping up all over the place. Whether it was here at the entrance to the Sam Merrill Trail, or on someone's wall or fence, homemade signs thanking the Firefighters and First Responders were visible everywhere.

lotus.jpg
Lotus411 viewsGrowing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center. The Lotus flower is said to be the only plant to fruit and flower simultaneously. It emerges from the depths of the muddy waters and symbolizes the manifestation of the universal Buddha Nature or Christ Consciousness inherent equally in all life. It also appears in legends of ancient Egypt and played an important part in ancient Egyptian Religion.
