As most of you know, Ellen and I love to travel, both within the US and abroad, and have been fortunate enough do so for the last 50+ years.

As we both retired from our work careers, we had the opportunity for extended trips to Western China, Greenland, Papua New Guinea, the Indonesian Islands, Australia & New Zealand as well as travel closer to home, including photo trips to observe the amazing Monarch Butterflies in Mexico and the awe inspiring Slot Canyons of the Navajo Reserves in Arizona.

With the restrictions brought about by COVID-19, we curtailed our travel and largely stayed closer to home. But we did not stop exploring, and Ellen continued to develop her skills at capturing what she sees wherever she is.

The 10 photos below as well as the 49 in the slide show (see link below) were all taken within just a few miles of our home in Washington, DC.

To see Ellen’s entire slide show (49 photos), use this link: Fall & Winter in DC.

For the best viewing, click on the little arrow at the top right of the first page of the link to start the slide show. If the slide show appears to start in the middle, scroll to the top of the page where you’ll see the little arrow in a box. Click on it.

See all the photos in the largest size possible (use a laptop or desktop computer if you have access to either). They are much sharper and the larger format presents them in much more detail than the 10 you have seen above. They are breathtaking in that format.
