“Christmas Light Fantasia” (Yeah, sorry, I got lazy this year, and when looking back through my files I didn’t have any new Christmas pictures to use. I’ll do better next year, or I might just replace this one mid-month after I start going out looking at Christmas lights.) Happy Holidays!

Big Bend National Park is one of the least-visited, yet most-beautiful US national parks. It is one of my favorite places on earth to visit. In the distance, you can see Santa Elena Canyon (that little cut in the rocks to the right).

  1. Lee, You are a great photographer!!!
    What is that thorny plant, is it part of another
    plant or is the plant itself thorny!?

  2. Thanks, Gina. I don’t know what it was. I think that is a seed pod in the picture. There were lots of them around.

    (If anyone knows what the plant is, please let me know!)

    Best,

    Lee
