Fall Foliage and Cumbres and Toltec Steam Locomoti…

26 Sep 2015 35 12 342
After our day's tour on the Cumbres and Toltec railroad, we spent the next day driving along the track area, and stopped at an overlook, waiting. The double-header came through the trees (with fall foliage), working uphill from Chama, New Mexico. Great sight. (looks good on a black background) See: swansonphotos.com/cumbres/cumbres.html

Fall Leaves

Taken near the Arc in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The leaves are starting to turn (September 25) here and there. Image processed with GIMP.

Arc and Building

25 Sep 2020 10 1 191
The "Arc" is a public art project in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The "arc" spans the river, but is not complete at the top, so it is not an "arch". Image converted to monochrome and processed with GIMP.

Falls with Train

22 Jul 2020 13 5 291
Taken in Falls Park, Sioux Falls, South Dakota. There is a train trestle over the river, right at the park location. BNSF tracks, but the train is D&I. Image processed with GIMP.

Roatan Cruise Port Under Construction (HFF)

18 Dec 2019 21 10 286
That's our cruise ship in the background. When we first visited Roatan in 2005, all they had was a large concrete slab for cruise passengers. This photo taken in 2019 shows that they have more now, including a shopping zone, but the port is now under major construction. Image taken with phone and processed with GIMP.

Allure of the Seas (BW)

20 Dec 2019 18 12 330
During our December 2019 cruise, we stopped at Costa Maya, Mexico. While we perhaps thought that our cruise ship was large, the "Allure of the Seas" is a monster. Looked better in monochrome, so I used GIMP to make the changes. (Does look better on a black background) See: swansonphotos.com/riviera1

Thatch Roof, Belize (HFF)

19 Dec 2019 23 13 278
Saw this typical house along the road, as we were on the bus from our cruise ship in Belize. (yes, there's a fence around the property) This style of roof is very typical of Central America, and very old, apparently having been used for the Maya structures of antiquity. Image processed with GIMP. See: swansonphotos.com/riviera1

Lunch

19 Dec 2019 6 5 250
Our tour of the Nim Li Punit Mayan ruins in Belize included lunch. We stopped at a local "tourist" place along the highway, and had a typical Central American lunch: rice, beans, chicken, and plantains. YUM See: swansonphotos.com/riviera1

Railroad Tools (BW)

15 Sep 2014 16 4 268
Taken at the Utah State Railroad Museum in Ogden, Utah, in 2014. I converted the image to monochrome with GIMP. See: swansonphotos.com/ogden/ogden_rail.html

Rusty Bell (BW)

15 Sep 2014 8 261
Taken at the Utah State Railroad Museum in Ogden, Utah, in 2014. This is the bell on a diesel locomotive. They had to put the bells lower down on these, unlike steam locomotives where the bell was right on the front on top. I converted the image to monochrome using GIMP. See: swansonphotos.com/ogden/ogden_rail.html

Arizona Shadows (HFF)

17 Sep 2018 21 9 255
Right out of the phone. Everyone have a great Friday!

Waterspout Off of Civitavecchia Harbor

24 Oct 2010 27 13 296
We had just arrived onboard the Prinsendam for a Mediterranean cruise, when we saw this waterspout in the distance. Had never seen one before.

Funchal Park Fence (HFF)

27 Nov 2013 19 10 275
HFF! Taken when our 2013 cruise stopped in Funchal, Madeira. This is a great destination. This iron fence is part of the border for a major public park on the hill above the city. Lovely gardens, there, too. Image processed with GIMP.

Ray of Light

06 Nov 2013 18 6 312
During our visit to Grand Canary on the 2013 cruise, we took a tour of the area. The tour included the small town of Teror. This is the Basilika "Nuestra Señora del Pino". Once inside this church, I was quite taken with the strong ray of light coming in from the high window, and striking the columns. View on a black background. Image processed with GIMP.
