Working vigorously to finish sifting thru and editing my Taiwan photos lol I took over 7,500 pics that summer btw. Here are a couple of photos that always catch my eye. Taipei Botanical Garden, pre-lotus season and pre-typhoon. So lush and magical. 🤩

I never cease to be amazed by the state of Minnesota. It has so many different biomes that it never fails to be interesting.
As with many things in life, beauty can be found in the grey areas, those places in-between. Southwestern Minnesota sits at the edge of the great plains of South Dakota which extend for hundreds of miles into Wyoming and Montana, and eases the transition from those plains to the rivers and woods of Southern Minnesota.
Multiple glacial coverings began to form a plateau millions of years ago. The last ice age saw a glacier split around part of the naturally tilled land, and solidified the Couteau des Prairies, specifically Buffalo Ridge where Pipestone National Monument is today. In addition to the sacred red pipestone that is quarried by Native Americans to this day, the area has fertile soil, gently rolling hills, and that beautiful big sky.
You could not ask for a more peaceful place for a day hike and simply contemplating your place here on Earth.
"مَأْسَاةٌ بَشَرِيَّة!" 🎴🥀
خَسِرَ ثروته ؟ فقد زوجته ؟ أم أحد أبنائه ؟ أو ربما كلَّ ما يملك ! ، أم كان السببُ مرضَه ؟ ، أم هي الحياة هكذا .. قاسيةٌ لا تملكُ قلباً ، و تسحقُ النَّاسَ دونَ مبالاة ، أم أن الرجلَ كان سيئاً طاغياً فنال ما يستحق ؟ ، ماذا حدثَ له لكي يصل إلى هذه المرحلة في حياته ؟ ، هل وُلَدَ هكذا ؟ أو أُرْغِمَ بعد مواجَهَةِ ظُلمٍ قاسٍ لم يُطِقهُ عقله ؟ ، أوربما كُتِبَ له الشقاء ؟ ، تساؤلاتٌ كثيرة تجري في عقلي و لا أجدُ لها إجابات .. حقاً .. إن هذهِ .. لَمَأْساةٌ بَشَرِيَّة! 🎴🥀
“Human Tragedy” 🎴🥀
Did he lose his fortune?, or was it his wife? .. or maybe it was one of his children. Could it be that he lost it all?, or was it maybe his sickness. Maybe life is that cruel, and it crush people with no consideration or hesitation. Maybe he was an oppressor and a tyrant, and deserved what has happened to him. What did happen to him that got him down here?. Was he born like this? Or he was forced to be after facing a great amount of injustice that his mind couldn’t bear?. Maybe it was written for him to be in this state?. So many questions are clashing in my mind that I couldn’t find answers for ..
Certainly, this is .. A Human Tragedy 🎴🥀

Wildflowers...Bet you’d never guess this was shot along the access road of 35. It’s all about the angle. Don’t discount a location without exploring it from every angle. You may miss a great shot.⠀ @jackieecarterr for @brazos_market in @magnoliapearl
I got up at 4:15 am to drive to the north entrance of Yellowstone. I got there so early that the ranger station had a note to enter and grab a map. I spent over nine hours in the park. More images to come.
Still troutin'. Even if the fishing is slow, it's never a bad thing when you're in s pretty place. The unique karst topography of Iowas Driftless region is one of those. This is what qualifies for a natural waterfall here in corn country.
Pic 2, filled my @slikusa tripod legs with water, but whatever. It was due for a cleaning.
