This was the very first shot I took when we were getting to Death Valley. I was shocked at how "fake" the scenery looked Almost like a cardboard cut-out or something, so I just HAD to get a shot of this! This is also probably the last wide-shot landscape shot I took that I liked from this trip, unfortunately I'm not too good with landscapes. On my next trip I plan to utilize my time and camera much more wisely!
Entrance to the historic Central City Cemetery, above Central City, Colorado. This cemetery is one of three around Central City and has graves dating back to the mid 1800s. I have visited this cemetery often, mainly because it's quite a beautiful place, many of its graves are hard to find in aspen groves, on a steep hillside, and generally historically interesting (it's also supposedly haunted, but I've never experienced anything remotely spooky there). If you're a cemetery buff and ever near Central City, I highly suggest you check this one out (and the other two Central City cemeteries are literally "next door", so you can hit three with one visit!).
A compilation of most of the food photos I have taken over the past 2-3 weeks using instagram. Some times it is easier to take a few snaps on my phone than get my camera out, especailly these past few weeks where me and the family have been unwell or busy so unable to have a proper photo shoot or with food that is served hot as there is nothing I hate more than a cold meal! A few of these photos you have seen either here or on my facebook page, most are new.
