Cellpic Sunday – 18 February 2018

Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

I promised a few Sundays of pictures from the Carnival Magic and our Eastern Caribbean cruise. Here’s a sunset at our six as we headed east toward our first stop. We didn’t know at this point that our first stop would be cancelled due to bad weather and the Captain’s choice to avoid the storm by going around our first port of call in the Dominican Republic.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas USVI.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sprinkling in some photos captured on our recent cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. Later, there will be some full galleries of images captured along with details of the places visited. On our visit to St. Thomas, we skipped the usual cruise ship excursions and grabbed a “taxi” Continue reading

Somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean.

Today’s Cellpic Sunday is being posted later than usual. Yesterday evening, well past our normal bedtime, we arrived home from a week’s stay on the Carnival Magic where we spent a week with several family members on a cruise organized by one of my nephews. For the next few Cellpic Sundays, you can expect to see some of the images I captured on our journey through the Eastern Caribbean islands. In future weeks, as I have time to process them, I’ll be sharing the journey in HDR (high dynamic range) images. Continue reading

Bryce Canyon, Utah.

In October 2013, we headed for Arizona via Utah visiting three National Parks in that beautiful state. The morning we headed toward Bryce, we were surprised by a beautiful snowfall. I’ve shared some of those photos before, but only recently, I discovered a misfiled collection of images from the Utah trip that were captured by my cell phone. The photo above is one of those recently discovered images. Continue reading

Buckeye, Arizona.

Late in the afternoon on January 14, I stepped outside onto our patio in Buckeye, Arizona and noticed something I’d not seen in Arizona before. A common occurrence, especially in winter in North Dakota, sun dogs were making an appearance here in Arizona. I’m not an expert on the phenomenon, so I can’t say how rare they are in Arizona. I can only relate that I’ve never noticed them here before. I grabbed my Samsung Galaxy S7 and captured the moment. Continue reading

Horace, North Dakota.

On Christmas Day, we were visiting with family and friends at their home in Horace. As sunset approached, I saw that the sun was casting a golden glow on the snow. It was about 8 below zero F. (-22 C.) at 4 PM, about the time when this photo was captured. Though cold, at least the wind was light. The bonus was that I didn’t have to go outside to capture the image. Their view of the sunset from the living room is as good as it gets. Continue reading

Buckeye, Arizona.

New Year’s Eve 2017. If you are reading this, we are back in Buckeye after our short trip home to Fargo for Christmas with family. I am actually creating this post on our first full day back in Fargo. The temperature right now is 6 degrees F. I am looking forward to heading south again to capture more of those glorious Arizona sunsets. The post is scheduled to automatically publish on New Year’s Eve. Continue reading
