Circus Elephants, Horses and Parrots

I love seeing the part of the show when the huge, lumbering elephants make their way into the circus ring. They are slow and deliberate, but I find them very entertaining.

Flying Trapeze, Gymnasts and Clowns at the Circus

These performers have an incredible amount of strength, bravery, trust in each other, and timing to do these kinds of stunts. (Glad there was a net below them too!) Pretty amazing!

Lions and Tigers at Krone Circus

What a fun afternoon at the Krone Circus in Munich, Germany. I always find the lion and tiger part of the show the most thrilling. The trainer was inside the cage with over 15 wild animals. He did a fantastic job of managing them. Enjoy the shots.

Heavy Frost in the Woods of Munich, Germany

The sights on this cold New Year’s morning in Munich, Germany were amazing. A thick frost (called hoar frost) was striking.  After walking into the woods we saw the beauty of the heavy frost everywhere on everything – trees, grass, and bushes. Here are a series of photos taken in those woods.

Heavy Frost on New Year’s Day in Munich, Germany

So when we got up on New Year’s morning, we discovered a winter wonderland outside. All the trees, bushes, fences, and gates were covered in a thick frost called hoar frost. It looked like long white prickers. It was frost.  We decided to take a walk through the neighborhood in Munich, Germany where my family lives. It was 20 degrees fahrenheit!

Here are photos of what I saw as we walked through the neighborhood. So unique and beautiful.

So we enjoyed browsing around the scenic town of Mystic last week. We were greeted by beautiful views of boats, waterways, eclectic shops, sunset bathed vistas and swimming ducks. Here are some shots of the sights I enjoyed in this little seaside town.

Super Moon – Nov 14, 2016 Over the Outer Banks

I was at the beach last night and had my camera with me. It was partly cloudy with enough patches of clear sky that I was able to get several shots. These were taken in Kitty Hawk, NC, one of the Outer Banks Beaches. What a beautiful night. What a gorgeous moon!

I used my 17 – 135 mm lens to take the shots. I cropped the photos using Photo Shop Elements.
