Onaping Lake Morning

A beautiful early morning on Onaping Lake.

No wind to bother

Blue skies above

Nature at its best

Through The Mountains

It is summer here in Nicaragua now. But like everywhere else in the world, the weather patterns have been messed up. Lately there has been plenty of rain, bringing cooler temperatures. It has been a week now since I finally made it out for some photographic fun. It was a beautiful warm sunny day. A little late in the morning for the best lighting. The haze was a little annoying to deal with.

It was on a Monday past that I was joined by a good Nica friend. I had secured his services the day before. We topped off his motorcycle with gas. Then away we went cruising through the mountains. It had been many years since I traveled by motorcycle.

I was attracted by a rock knob on the mountain top as shown in the photo. The lush greens of the landscape is long gone. Replaced by parched earth. There is tremendous depth here in the photo. From foreground to background you are given a sense of depth vertically and horizontally. You will see buildings in the left corner of photo. They give you the sense scale to the whole composition. The rock knob is only a portion of my composition, but is there. I allowed the sky to be half of the photo. Thus a sense of overall vastness that are the mountains. In this type of work I want you to envision the feeling of a 3D feel.

I will close now, till next week. So until next week happy trails

Oh My Gosh


Rivas, Nicaragua. At the ferry landing Lac Nicaragua

Oh My Gosh

I was told by my mamma

That I would meet, a lady

That would take my breath away

That was my destiny

Well just the other day

I saw my destiny

She stood there looking

Doe eyed and sweet

I was all a flutter

Tongue in a knot

She said hello

I thought I melted

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Well you know

I found my tongue

But all I could say

Oh my gosh

She wore a red dress

Tight and alluring

Those smoky eyes

Kept pulling me closer

Those soft red lips

Just a teasing me

Long black hair

Straight and sparkling

She got swinging hips

Oh, those shapely legs

What a pretty lady that

Oh my gosh

I’ll take you in my arms

Hold you tight

Tell you, you are my destiny

To the end of time

I just want to

I just want to

Make love to you

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

I have met my destiny

She takes my breath away



Pablo Sanchez and I spotted the orange roofs that dominated this beautiful finca along the highway between Riva and the Costa Rica border. I told Pablo that we must stop here on our way back later in the day.

On our return journey, we parked at the gated entrance. A security guard met us. Pablo spoke to the gentleman about allowing me to enter to obtain photos. I was granted permission to do so. I set up my tripod using the palm tree as my foreground. The road leads your eye into the composition along with the fences. By using the palm tree I can create depth to the photo. Beautiful blue skies and white fluffy clouds that I darkened down to increase contrast. This to me is a impressive finca.

Our journey continues for Pablo and I. By the way if interested give Pablo Sanchez a call for your travelling needs. For the pure joy of sightseeing or your business interests, Pablo Sanchez with his car is available.

So until next time happy trails
