We visited Big Bend again during Christmas and one day I had to myself, I went into the park to walk the Burro Mesa pouroff trail. I pretty much had it to myself. It was quiet, I only heard one bird singing. My tinnitus is bad enough that it’s all I could hear besides the bird. I found an app for my phone that measures decibels, I opened it and the volume level was at 28 decibels.
This one is going nowhere fast.
Big Bend National Park, in the village of Castolon.
We took our kayaks and paddled in the serene waters of the Laguna Madre between the barrier island of Padre Island and the Texas mainland. No surf, light winds and smooth waters. It was a beautiful day.
I love experimenting with my photos in several different apps on my iPad. Some pictures just lend themselves to this. Here’s some of my experiments.
This app is Glaze
This one is Pixlr
FX from Macphun
I have lots of fun with my apps. They have all kinds of options and .you can achieve many different looks, the fun is in experimenting.
Fog in the desert is by nature, temporary and elusive. This is the Window trail in the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park. By the time we actually got to the window, which is a gap in the rock where water from the basin drains, all trace of fog was gone.
