Lovely photographic series, Jet. You’ve certainly taken the opportunity to see a lot of your own country. Love the rainbow photo in Hawaii. 🙂
I’m happy to have shared some of the U.S. with you, Draco. It’s such a big country, with lots of beauty. We are lucky to have had so many forefathers and -mothers who protected the land for everyone’s enjoyment. I found your visits today a pure delight, thank you, my friend.
Thank you Elena. There is so much beauty in this country, it was difficult to narrow down the photos.
These are lovely. I especially like the one from Joshua Tree.
Thank you for your kind words and visit, John. Joshua Tree is a very special place, with those cool-looking trees, the barrenness, and the surrounding majestic mountains. I’m glad you liked it.
Thanks very much, John, nice to see you, thanks for dropping by. Joshua Tree park is very special with its barrenness and silence, the cool-looking trees, and the surrounding mountains.
Okay, How did I miss this post??? I love each one of the photos you selected for this post and it all represents a different aspect of our beautiful nation! Thank you. That was quite a treat!
Thanks so much, sdis. As you know, it’s a huge country and there’s so much beauty, I’m glad to have shared some of it with you here. I have been enjoying your forays into the western wilderness lately.
