Center-pivot irrigated crops in the unincorporated community of Oasis, California. I accidentally found Area 51 on Google Maps when I was trying to locate this photo (I was over 100 miles out at the time!) Yep, I'm that sad.

Monet Pool

The Monet pool in Denver Botanic Gardens is home to 150 species of the water lily, the plant that made Claude Monet so famous. I had left my easel at home, so went for a more photorealistic interpretation here.

Tony Vegas

Me editing my photos could hardly be called a spectator sport. This guy, on the other hand, has turned making art into an art form.
Vying for attention with contortionists, musicians and other street performers, Tony Vegas produces his paintings in frenzies of movement, sound and colour which draw sizeable crowds. He is seen here showing off a finished creation at the Fremont Street Experience.
See him making a painting in just under 7 minutes here

Green Sotol

Dasylirion leiophyllum (commonly known as green sotol or smooth-leaf sotol) in the University of California Botanical Garden. It is native to North American, and common in the Chihuahan desert.
The word "sotol" appears in the common names of many other species in this genus of the asparagus family. The distilled spirit sotol, however, is made from Dasylirion wheeleri, or desert spoon.

East Palo Altotude

An aerial view of East Palo Alto and Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, looking down US 101. In the distance rain clouds are relieving themselves over the wildlife refuge and Mountain View, further inland.
Shout out to IKEA (the closest of the three big white buildings) for helping me to identify the location.

Mammoth Hot Springs

Mammoth Hot Springs is a complex of hot springs in Yellowstone National Park. Travertine, a form of limestone deposited by the hot springs, is abundant here, and in places is tinted red, brown, orange or green by algae.
Behind and on the right is Mount Everts.

LDS Conference Centre

A 92 foot tower atop the roof of this building (yes roof, don't be fooled by the trees) gives a clue as to its religious significance, serving as the premier meeting place of the Mormon Church and housing, for this purpose, the largest theatre style auditorium in the world. Just walk into the building and in true Mormon style, someone will be there to greet you, eager to give you a tour. Out of view to the right is what is surely Salt Lake City's finest roof-top garden, so it's well worth a visit.
