An off-season walk along Higbee Beach is always peaceful, especially when you have the beach to yourself.

I’ve been waiting for a dynamic sky to photograph this isolated limestone boulder for at least 2 years. I liked how the small clouds on the left and right sides of the frame lit up a little from sunlight for this frame.

This shot was taken off of Kolob Terrace Road away from the hustle and bustle of central Zion National Park. I got lucky as a passing car briefly illuminated the mountains to make this shot.

The brisk temperatures in northernmost New Jersey kept away the park visitors at High Point. I even spotted a few snow flurries during my visit.
