Out and About II

I don't think
it's possible to
take a bad photo
of the Taj Mahal.
It is ethereal,
beautiful, and
seems to glow in
any light.  It is the
first structure I've
seen which I
would say actually
transcends
humanity.

The Hawaiian Island of Oahu (Pacific Ocean).  After that trip, I swore I would never, ever
bodysurf again outside of the reefs.  There is something unnerving about walking up the
back of a shark.  The only thing more disconcerting is to realize that you are swimming
alone, a half-mile out, over an entire pack of the nasties.

Bleached cliffs along the Mekong River, between the borders
of Thailand and Laos.  Yes, I know, I could have shown you palaces and ruins,
elephants and temples; orchids and Buddhas and rice paddies...

Dawn over the Queen's Lake, in Khatmandou, Nepal.  I went out before dawn and
waited for this.  Took one shot and my lens jammed--too much dust from the jungles.  
There I was, trying desperately to fix my camera before the light went, and
the Nepalese kept stopping to ask if there was something they could
do to help, bless them.  Nice people!

The Yankee Clipper, anchored here off Sand Island (near the northern tip
of South America) in the Carribbean.  I had been hoping for a storm, and we got a good one. 
Two days of tropical storm, winds 65 mph, seas surging and the ship plunging up and down.
The islands we passed were thin lines of sideways trees.  The water was a
wonderful streaked gray.  I couldn't get all the way out on the bowsprit,
but the bow itself was acceptable as a place to be in the storm.


Ever noticed how almost all my shots have either water or rocks in them?  I wonder if that's what they mean by a rut...
