About Charles Ables

Thanks for visiting my gallery.

I am an amateur photographer with a passion for the Grand Canyon and all that is outdoors in Arizona. Rather it is backpacking or traveling the back roads, I do my best to get out there and do what I love; preserve nature’s wonderful art she is sharing. I do this in one or two ways, digital photography and/or creating videos I upload on You Tube.
So please enjoy your visit, I have five gallery's for you to visit; however, as nature is always a work in progress, so to is my web site and my works.

And please explore my You Tube site @ http://www.youtube.com/user/HikingAbe and enjoy my rough hewn videos of past hikes.

Thanks for coming

Grand Canyon Trailer

Yellow Finch

May 18th, 2014

I believe it is a Lesser Goldfinch that fascinates me as I watch it jump around flighty like in the peach tree of our back yard. And I resolve to take a picture of it, hopefully. Thus far, it started yesterday just before sunrise when I set up my cam... 

Beauty Hiding

May 11th, 2014

Sick

March 23rd, 2014

I do not like being sick! The plans I had this week-end went by the wayside when a bit of a cold drug me down. Sniffles, well more like snot running out of a tap, my nose, aches, sluggish, just plain moving on impulse power this weekend. So much so, ... 

Today, March 15th, '14 Sally and I took a much needed day hike on trail # 161, the Huckaby Trail. Smack in the Sedona, Red Rock, Oak Creek area of Arizona. And Barney our dog tagged along with us. It was nice, although I did not dress for the oc... 

Goodbye Minerva

March 9th, 2014

No human kindness has ever touched or pet you until today when I picked you up from the street dying from maybe poison And we held you at the vet's one last time stroking your head and ears sad beyond belief of what is happening to you d... 

Late Winter Bloom

Arrived Uninvited

March 1st, 2014

They arrived uninvited around Halloween, and at first I ignore them; hopeful they would not set up camp, make their selves at home, just simply move on as a band of nomad's to a better place, and I would forget about their passing through. Th...

Sallys Bouquet

December 14th, 2013

There was a time when I would not consider digitally altering a photograph. On occasion I may have touch it up a bit by sharpen it, change a photo to black and white when it calls to me, and maybe even run a high pass. I generally made it a rule “wh...
