We always travel with Nature, yet focus on that topic far from home. Berna and I have had the good fortune to venture away from the ‘burg many times over the past several decades. I love to try to capture the visual and emotional feeling of new vistas. A camera captures what it sees, not what you see or feel. Often that reality has me buried in Photoshop till late hours of the night.
For this talk, I will examine highlights from several areas: Namibia, Tanzania, Patagonia, India and Morocco. I look forward to sharing some of my more distant travels with the club, but will recall the sights in our neighborhood.
