Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: Altered reality

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

By Ted Grussing

… sometimes it can be fun to alter reality to fit what we want to see and that was how I reacted to a very beautiful shot I took of a Great Egret at Watson Lake last Thursday … a nice clean shot, but a little magic in the air and we have this visage … also fits the music by Deuter that I am listening to now. Anyhow, hope you like it and find a way to make your day shine a little more than it otherwise might. We find what we seek and if you seek beauty you will find that too … in all aspects of your life.

Old Town Center for the ArtsCottonwood AZ (November 21, 2017) – If you are up for a variety of vintage rock, tender instrumentals, a Morricone movie theme, some Dave Brubeck, even a bit of Beethoven — all from three guitars, you won’t want to miss the performance of the California Guitar Trio, Friday December 1st 7:00 PM at the Old Town Center for the Arts in Old Town Cottonwood. 

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.

Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: End of day

Monday, November 20th, 2017

By Ted Grussing

… after One decided she had thoroughly patrolled her territory, she led the way back into the house and I decided to head up to the airport and catch a beautiful sunset in the air. I also got a few nice shots of red rocks in last light, but it was the sunset of a very quiet day I wanted. Finally the sun began slipping behind Mingus Mountain and all the residual smoke in the air lent some beautiful color to the sky … flying as a glider I slipped silently through the darkening sky and caught the reflection of the setting sun on the cowling and the motionless  propeller. The wind was calm and a silent landing at Sedona on a deserted runway and field. Came to a stop short of A4, engine restart, cleared the runway and taxied back to my shade at the N end of the field. It is beautiful with all the runway and taxiway lights glowing in the dark across the whole length of the mesa … gateway to the world.

Phoenix AZ (November 20, 2017) – Over Thanksgiving weekend, state and local agencies will focus on keeping motorists safe and placing equipment and resources along heavily traveled highways to help move traffic should incidents occur.

Motorists will play key roles in keeping traffic moving, too, by making smart driving decisions that won’t result in serious crashes that ruin road trips and create travel delays. Drivers are urged to use caution over the holiday weekend in existing work zones and in three “holiday travel corridors” that will receive extra enforcement and resources to minimize travel delays.
