"ANTELOPE FLATS"-ARIZONA - I'LL BE FEATURING STEVE WALKER'S WORK FOR THE NEXT WEEK -HE IS A VERY TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER
 
I LOVE SUNSET SHOTS, WITH THE SUN'S RAYS BREAKING FORTH
 
OLD FORD IN A FIELD FULL OF CARS AS THE SUN SETS - THE COLORS AND TEXTURES ARE WHY I PHOTOGRAPH THESE OLD VEHICLES
 
APPROACHING THE PYRAMID RIDGE OF MT.RAINIERS  EASTERN SUMMIT: PHOTO TAKEN WITH A 24-70 WIDE ANGLE CANON EF L SERIES LENS-WE ARE REALLY CLOSE AND THE CLOUDS WERE CLOSE ENOUGH TO FREEZE ON THE SURFACE OF MY CAMERA WITH THE HELI OPEN DOOR
 
'WEST SIDE OF MT.RAINIER' - SOME OF THE BEST RECORDED SIGHTINGS OF BIG FOOT HAVE BEEN SEEN IN THIS AREA , AS WELL AS THE WHOLE CASCADE MOUNTAIN RANGE SYSTEM
 
"THE WIND SWEPT CORNICES", ON THE EAST SIDE OF MT.RAINIER MUST HAVE AWESOME AVALANCHES WHEN THE CORNICES BREAK LOOSE
 
ANOTHER VIEW OF THE SUMMIT OF MT.RAINIER-WHAT AN AMAZING TIME THIS WAS, FLYING THROUGH THE LOWER CLOUD COVER,AND TO  BURST THROUGH AND HAVE THE SUMMIT APPEAR OUT OF THE CLOUDS-"OH HOW MARVELOUS ARE THE WORKS OF GOD ALMIGHTY"

THIS IS THE BERKLEY PIT IN BUTTE MONTANA WHERE THE THOUSANDS OF SNOW GEESE LANDED AND DIED. I TOLD THE HELICOPTER PILOT TO STAY AWAY FROM THE WATER IN CASE WE HAD TO AUTO-ROTATE, THIS OPEN PIT IS DANGEROUS.  COPYRIGHT ALL RIGHTS RESERVED STEVE QUAYLE
 
LAKE POWELL IS DRYING UP AND YOU CAN SEE THE TRUE DANGER OF GEO-ENGINEERING AND WEATHER CONTROL WHICH WILL PRODUCE 'THE GREAT MIGRATION' FROM THE DESERT SOUTHWEST AND WEST COAST WILL BEGIN VERY SOON AS WATER RUNS OUT!

"GEYSER STREAMS AND BACKWOOD HOT POTS"-  WEST OF SHOSHONE LAKE -- YELLOWSTONE  PARK
 
SQ: HAVING PHOTOGRAPHED 'GRAND PRISMATIC SPRINGS'  IN 'YELLOWSTONE',  NUMEROUS TIMES,IT ENABLES ME TO COMPARE , CHANGES IN THE FLOW PATTERNS OF THIS GEOLOGIC WONDER OF THE WORLD IN ACUTE DETAIL!
