Continental Avenue Bridge AND Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

This is a two for one special!  These bridges are very close together. One is a new city landmark, the other is a park. There is a huge project going on in Dallas that encompasses the Trinity River Corridor. They are building walking paths and other outdoor-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy.

We started out on the Trinity Skyline Trail and walked down the ramp to the floodway below, where the trail is located.

Christmas Lights at Vitruvian Park

If you’re not feeling all that festive yet, but want a gorgeous place to walk around and see lots and lots of Christmas lights, then make your way to Vitruvian Park in Addison immediately!  Well…preferably after dark!

I packed up my camera and tripod to practice working on long exposures.  The park is absolutely beautiful with all the trees perfectly wrapped in colorful lights. (Click on each photo to see a larger version! Go on!)

Walking Along Turtle Creek

Hello Summer!  We’ve reached that point in the year here in Texas where it gets rather uncomfortable to be outside for long periods of time, lest we all turn into puddles of sweat and sunscreen.  As such, future DFW adventures will either be indoors with air conditioning, or just not happen quite as often.

Something worth drawing your attention to is that I have created a Tumblr account where I will post some of the photos I have taken with my phone.  It will be a mix of Instagram, VSCOcam, and plain old snaps, so feel free to check it out.

Peter and I wandered along Turtle Creek after recent storms.  There was quite a bit of debris around from when the creek waters rose, so a bit of caution was needed.

Photographing nature and landscapes is not my forte (I need a bigger lens!), but there was certainly lots to see as we walked around.  Below are some of my favorite images from our excursion…

Sun flare makes me happy. Just making sure I don’t go blind in the process of trying to capture it!
