Memorial Day 2012


Fate, or a higher power guided my wife and I to a beautiful Memorial Day display at the cemetery in the small town of Benton, Kansas today.  When I saw the cross shaped flare coming through the flag on this image, I figured it might be more than luck.   I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday.  Thank you to all who have served and sacrificed to defend our freedom.




Another scene from one of my favorite locations visited in the Caribbean, the Old San Juan Cemetery.   Hey look, I broke the rule of thirds yet again!  That orange dome against the ocean just intrigued the heck out of me, although as I recall I was 90% of the way towards a heat stroke by this point so instead of the usual 5 to 20 frames I usually take of a good scene, this is the only one I have of the dome itself, isolated against the background.

Cemetery By The Sea

A little something from a warmer climate this morning.  This is the beautiful cemetery located between the stone walls of fortress El Morro and the ocean, at Old San Juan Puerto Rico.   This particular image is an HDR with some additional post processing.   The cemetery had just closed for the day when we finally found the entrance (a long story in itself), so I couldn’t wander inside.  The location is packed with beautiful statuary.  Another one of those travel locations where I wish I had more time to explore.
