Yeah. Male elephant seals have a quick fuse to begin with, and it doesn't help that right now is near the peak of their mating season when they're even more territorial. I stayed at least 100 feet away at all times.

There was a group of kids exploring the nearby tidepools, and they didn't even notice him until he woke up rolled around a little.

I think most people feel those things are so lazy and huge that they couldn't possibly move fast but they do, and it's not a pretty sight!

I have such a love for the area in Virginia where I was born. My sister took this one of our "home place."



Down the road a way . . . .

That is beautiful, how much land surrounds the house? It's so different seeing scenery like that where here in California the homes are practically built on top of one another with fences marking off front and back yards.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the house is on top of a smallish round hill, then there is a creek bottom, all the land you see (and some you don't see!) to the right of the road, then a bunch to the left of the house around the hill. I can't remember how many acres. Sigh . . . .

Dieman, you have some amazing talent.

You wouldn't happen to have any Tahoe shots would you?

Not too many. I've got a few of Eagle Falls and Emerald Bay. I need to do some snowshoeing and get some good winter shots. Here are a couple:

Very nice, I'm headed out there in a few weeks for some skiing and will be taking a ton of pictures, but probably no where near as good as yours.

Crabtree Falls, Nelson County, Virginia



There are four different falls as the stream makes its way down the mountain. This was taken during a dry summer--not much water in the falls.



On the way there:
