Sand Dunes Dust Storm and Sun Rays (Black and White)

Revisiting a 2016 folder… I don’t like the color one yet, so here’s black and white. I need to finish re-installing software & plug-ins on the computer I just built.

A Generator and Dust

A Generator and Dust

The morning after the horrendous thunderstorm at Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley. We heard a number of generators running (we had no power ourselves). This one was outside the registration office. It didn’t produce enough juice for them to get their computers going, though. They made a note that we were leaving and that half a tree had fallen on our cabin — but the note was handwritten and our bill was left settled.

The air got dusty whenever any kind of vehicle went by. The mud from the flood dried to a fine powder that was easily raised — and then hung in the air and spread all around. I’ve seen floods after hurricanes where everything touched by the water showed some kind of mark. After this storm everything looked covered with powder.

Frosty winter morning at Tunnel View (Yosemite National Park)

Frosty winter morning at Tunnel View (Yosemite National Park)

The winter storm that moved through Yosemite last weekend cleared a few times throughout the day, making for beautiful light and showing off tunnel view in late morning at its sugar-frosted best.

(just noticed there’s a dust spot or two–will fix that later when I’m at the appropriate computer).

Monument Valley Sunset

Monument Valley Sunset

Watching last thursday’s episode of Billy Connolly’s journey down Route 66 inspired me to take another look at my Monument Valley snaps. What a place!

I think I’ve got my settings wrong on my pc/monitor because this looks so much more vibrant on my computer than it does on my iPad. The difference isn’t usually that pronounced but with this shot it’s really apparent.

From monumentvalley.org :-

Monument Valley is one of the truly iconic places of the United States. It has been the setting for hundreds of Western movies, and its unique sandstone formations are instantly recognizable the world over.

The Valley is home to Navajo families that have lived there for generations.

Monument Valley is a part of the Navajo Nation. It is located on the Utah/Arizona border, east of Highway 163. The park entrance is in Utah. Admission to the park is $5 per person, and free for children under the age of 9.

For visitor information, contact Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

The park is open daily from 6am to 8pm from May through September and from 8am to 5pm from October through April.

Getting there

From Flagstaff, head east on Highway 40 to Highway 89 (Page, Grand Canyon Exit). Travel north on Highway 89 to Highway 160. Travel east on Highway 160 to Highway 163 (Kayenta exit). Travel north into Utah to Goulding’s Lodge then take Indian Route 40 southeast to the entrance to Monument Valley. The closest airport is Farmington, New Mexico. It is about two and a half hours east of the park.

Most of the scenic locations within Monument Valley are found within the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. At the edge of the valley, there is a visitor center, a small convenience store and the Haskenneini Restaurant, which specializes in both native Navajo and American cooking.

As this is not a federal park, National Park Passes or Golden Eagle Passes are not valid here.

“It’s breathtaking. You can’t believe it. It’s very photogenic; it has a kind of mythic feeling of age, of legend. . . . You’ve seen it in the movies, but when you see it in life, it’s so epic in its proportions that it almost stands for the whole of the West.” -Filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich.

Quot;Optical Valley” Big Three build the largest reorganization of laser companies – Reorganiz

Quot;Optical Valley” Big Three build the largest reorganization of laser companies – Reorganiz

About 3 times, about 5 years, “Optics Valley of China” Laser focused on the three M & finally settled. Clearly, laser industry has already become one of the top four of the Chinese workers

Technology , Chutian Laser, Laser united together to form a new company, its size will exceed the Shenzhen Han’s Laser and “became the largest laser companies.”

Together to enhance the competitiveness of the Big Three

1 13, the signing of the merger agreement restructuring the statement, the chairman of Sun Yat Chutian laser excited several times raising his voice: “Today is a milestone in China’s laser industry day will be shocked the world laser field day! “

According to reports, the new listed company will choose an auspicious day, the three M & A specific way: Chinese workers and Technology through a private placement to raise funds 300,000,000 yuan, available funds, the Chinese laborers technology investment 100 million yuan, with the laser to be re-Chutian quality assets, joint venture, a joint venture by the Chinese laborers Technology Holdings, the main business of medical laser products; laborers technology investment 100 million yuan, and the unity of laser quality assets to be re-established joint venture, a joint venture by the Chinese laborers Technology Holdings, operates mainly in high-power cutting, Longitudinal flow laser products; laborers laborers laser technology capital increase to 100 million yuan, mainly

Investment Fiber Laser , Semiconductor Pump laser and other projects.

Reorganization is complete, “Optics Valley of China” laser industry, will focus on the core competitiveness of Chinese laborers to the listed company’s technology to form the main body of the three clear division of labor: Chinese laborers laser, Chinese workers and Chinese workers Chutian unity. Highlight the three core business, significant economies of scale, will form a leader, a division of labor and cooperation, a new pattern of industrial concentration.

Chairman Ma Xinjiang Science and Technology said Chinese workers, Chinese laborers after the reorganization of industrial laser technology will become the largest high-power laser

Equipment manufacturing Business, the first laser

Signed the agreement in two weeks ago, Sun Yat-sen and his competitors?? Laborers Technology Chairman Ma Xinjiang as the central business representatives, along with being nominated for CCTV’s “China Year”, but ultimately unsuccessful.

An insider said: “If the agreement signed last year, at least one person to screen!” Indeed, despite all the domestic laser industry “leader”, but the relative size of other areas of their businesses that are much smaller. According to statistics, “Optics Valley of China” laser focus on the three companies last year’s sales total income of less than 1 billion yuan.

Goal: to expand the international market

“Not surprisingly, the new company after the reorganization will be officially launched in February this year, sales revenue is expected rushed to 1.2 billion years.” Wuhan East Lake Development Zone, revealed that a responsible person.

But still ambitious sen, said: “Chinese workers are technology companies raise money through targeted support, the confidence to do that we will have double value for 5 consecutive years, further expansion into international markets.”

Few years ago, is sen optical transmission over a continuous R & D

Laser welding machine Not only replace a large number of import equipment, and successfully exported to the U.S. Silicon Valley, to achieve exports of developed countries, China’s laser “zero” breakthrough.

Chair the new company will be fully working Maxin Jiang also said that restructuring is complete, “Optics Valley of China” main laser industry will focus its technology to Chinese workers to form the main body of the three clear division of labor: Chinese laborers laser, Chinese workers and Chinese workers Chutian unity.

Small Baotuan triggered “self”

Laborers science and technology in business planning and restructuring of the three laser focus, while mergers and acquisitions, “Optics Valley of China” the other dozens of small and medium enterprises have already begun planning for laser alignment to counter the dangers coming market. In mid-December 2006, the public and Thailand lasers, optoelectronics, Wuhan Lingyun bleomycin and 6 small laser company set up in Wuhan, “Wuhan laser? Light

Electronic Industry Alliance “, and began to accept other conditions for approval of the laser line business to join.

According to reports, the “China Optics Valley” is known as a barometer of China’s laser industry, now has developed into the largest laser research and development, production, and high-level personnel training as an important base, the existing more than 50 laser production more than 40 kinds of products, the domestic market share has remained at about 50%.

Laser for many small and medium enterprises, three laser giant restructuring will further aggravate “the upper and lower pincer attack” of survival: the giant laser to deal with large-scale competition, the next to suffer a small laser workshop of spoiler.
