Maine (October 2012)


IMG_3331_28129.jpg

Stu and I traveled to New England in early/mid-October, 2012. We visited two main locations: the Museum of Science in Boston MA, and Acadia National Park in Maine. Of the more than 1,060 photos I took, 56 appear here as representative samples. These photos were all taken with my Canon PowerShot SX230 HS camera. As with most of the albums here, the photos have been reduced in size: these are 1,024 pixels long by 768 wide (regardless of orientation). Latitude and longitude values are provided, generally with an accuracy within about 10-20 meters, except indoor shots. You can copy the values and paste them into Google Maps/Earth (or any GIS software, perhaps with minor modifications) to see the locations. The locations were mostly provided by the camera, but my Garmin eTrex HCx filled in where the camera's GPS wasn't able to get a good enough signal. Indoor locations were estimated as noted.

Spain (July-August 2008)


IMG_0553_(Medium).JPG

Stu and I left for Spain on July 22, 2008, and returned to Oklahoma on August 3. Of the approximately 1,300 photos I took, about three dozen were good/interesting enough to display here. These photos (and one video) were all taken with my new Canon SD890 IS camera. As with most of the albums here, the photos have been re-sized or cropped to 800 x 600 pixels. Latitude and longitude values are provided, generally with an accuracy within about 10-20 meters (about 200-500 meters for shots from a moving vehicle). You can copy the values and paste them into Google Maps/Earth (or any GIS software, perhaps with minor modifications) to see the locations. Unless otherwise noted, the tracking information was derived from my Garmin eTrex Vista Cx track log.

Ontario (May-June 2005)


P5302241.JPG

Stu went to Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario, Canada for seven weeks of radar training. I was there for most of the first three weeks of that time. We also took a weekend trip to Hawkesbury, Ontario, and visited nearby sites from there. Here is a small sample of the nearly 800 photos I took during that trip (Camera: Olympus 5050Z). An incomplete (under construction) map is available at: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=http://www.cmsharpe.com/test/Canada2005.kml

Here are some of the 164 photos taken during a short visit to Lafayette, Louisiana. The camera is an Olympus 5050Z, often using a 2X telephoto lens (used for most of the bird photos).

Cheryl Underground390 views1998-06-??
near Freedom, Oklahoma, USA

Alabaster Caverns (they're in northwest Oklahoma) - somewhere near the middle of the underground tour. This photo was shot with 1000 ASA film and I still had to hold still for several seconds. One member of the group didn't - and she almost disappeared from the picture! Our tour guide is on the far left.

Stu is catching up with me, on his rented bicycle, at the junction of a couple of carriage roads. Eagle Lake is in the background (looking SE).

Interesting sign182 views2001-06-26
Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico, USA

This sign in the Visitor Center says a lot without a single printed word! We returned to the cave on the 26th to tour the "Left-Hand Tunnel." I didn't get any good pictures from that.

Lorca, Murcia, Murcia, Spain
N37.6747 W1.6961 (est. from Google Earth)

This animated pedestrian crossing signal is amusing, especially toward the end, as the amount of time remaining goes under 5 seconds. Looking NE. (NOTE: This video may not be viewable in your browser. Apologies. Still looking for a solution to this problem....)

A pink and yellow water lily at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth. Once again, I usually don't like pink with yellow, but this flower looks great anyway.

View From Atop Beech Mountain1238 views2012-10-13
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA

Acutally, this view is from the first landing of the stairs on the fire lookout station at the summit of Beech Mountain. This is looking SE, toward Southwest Harbor, Maine, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

Fire Lookout Station Atop Beech Mountain1235 views2012-10-13
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA
44.3109,-68.3454

We climbed to the top of Beech Mountain from the north side. This fire lookout station was closed, except up to the first landing on the stairs. According to Google Earth, this photo was taken at an elevation of 258 m. See also the photo of this fire lookout that was taken from the Sea Princess scenic cruise boat, also in this album.

Pine Cones611 views2012-10-13
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA
44.3114,-68.3454

These pine cones were unusually photogenic, against the bright blue sky. This photo was taken very near the summit of Beech Mountain (just north of the summit), and, I believe, within sight of the fire lookout station.

Spring Trail Meets Carriage Road541 views2012-10-12
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA
44.3212,-68.2605

Stu and I took the Spring Trail up as far as the steps (shown here) go, decided it wasn't for us (at least given the amount of time we had left to hike), and ended up going the other way on the Spring Trail (toward the Jordan Pond House). This photo was taken near the southeastern-most extent of Mount Penobscot.

View Toward Seal Harbor563 views2012-10-12
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA
44.3228,-68.2592

This photo was taken from a carriage road to the west of the south part of Jordan Pond, looking S. The water in the foreground is Long Pond (but not the Long Pond in other photos in this album!).
