A few random photos from the last few years

Thought i’d share some photos i’ve taken over the last few years at a few different places around the USA. There’s not really a theme of the photos just a very random bunch which i thought i’d like to edit.

Downtown Dallas, Texas

It’s been a while since i shared any photos on here so thought i’d add some photos from Dallas earlier this spring. Over the last few years i’ve done a lot more wildlife than street photography, so for a change i’ve edited some images from Downtown.

FC Dallas v Toronto FC

Thought i’d share something different to the usual blurry bird photos and write a post about FC Dallas’s first game of the MLS season against Toronto FC. This weekend was the opening weekend of the 27th MLS season, Dallas have undergone plenty of offseason surgery after a disappointing campaign saw them finish 3rd bottom lastContinue reading “FC Dallas v Toronto FC”

Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, Texas

Thought i’d share a few photos from our trip to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in December. Going in the winter is one of my favourite times of year, each season has it’s own distinct wildlife at the refuge but during December/January there are usually thousands of Snow Geese which makes an amazing natural spectacle.

Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Nevada

Taken a little while but got around to editing more photos from the Ruby Valley. I’ll share some images of the wildlife we encountered at the National Wildlife Refuge. I’ll do my best to identify the birds (with help from the National Geographic’s Complete Birds of North America book & the Audubon App) but i’llContinue reading “Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Nevada”

Ruby Valley, Nevada

Enjoyed a great week in Nevada last month for Thanksgiving. One of the days we took a trip to Ruby Valley, this is a glacier made Valley around 50 miles from Elko in Northern Nevada. The Valley is around 60 Miles in length and offers some amazing views of the local scenery and wildlife. TheContinue reading “Ruby Valley, Nevada”

San Antonio, Texas

A few more images from visiting San Antonio in May. On reflection i would definitely rank it amongst my favourite cities I’ve visited in America. Aside from the Spanish Missions (here’s my post about those for anyone who’s interested) https://lone-star-lore.com/2021/07/31/spanish-missions-san-antonio-texas/ there is a lot of other stuff to do and visit there. In this postContinue reading “San Antonio, Texas”

Lake Ray Roberts State Park, Texas

Enjoyed a visit to Lake Ray Roberts recently, it’s a massive reservoir around 30 miles North of Dallas. It has two Texas State Park locations attached to it, the one we visited was the Isle du Bois unit on the southern side of the lake. There’s a lot of activities to do there including boating,Continue reading “Lake Ray Roberts State Park, Texas”

Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, Texas

Took a Summer trip to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in North Texas. This is the first time visiting in the Summer and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived at the refuge at around 630am in time to watch the sunrise which was impressive to say the least. As always there were plenty of birds and otherContinue reading “Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, Texas”

Spanish Missions San Antonio, Texas

I thought i’d share a few photos from a recent trip to San Antonio. San Antonio is around 250 miles south of DFW. It was founded in the early 1700s as a Spanish Mission and Outpost. Whilst visiting you can definitely see the influence still of the Latin style architecture all around the city. SanContinue reading “Spanish Missions San Antonio, Texas”
