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.

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”

San Jacinto Battlefield & USS Texas

I thought i’d share a few other photos from visiting Houston a few months back. As well as going to Anahuac we also visited the San Jacinto Battlefield, the most decisive battle of the Texas Revolutionary War. The battle was fought in April 1836 and resulted in total victory for the Texans who also tookContinue reading “San Jacinto Battlefield & USS Texas”

Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas

Recently went to the Texas gulf coast, around 70 miles South East of Houston to Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. It’s 34,000 acres of natural habitat mainly for birds and in particular shore and wading birds. It’s also a great place in the spring to see migratory songbirds whom travel through after crossing the Gulf ofContinue reading “Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas”

Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge (pt 1), Texas

Last weekend we took a trip north from Dallas to the Texas – Oklahoma border to the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Situated close to Sherman, the refuge is over 11,000 acres squared and is famous as a haven for migratory birds. All year round you can visit here and see a whole plethora of differentContinue reading “Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge (pt 1), Texas”
