Located within sight of the Indian Ocean, The Pinnacles are limestone formations located within Nambung National Park. With the roar of crashing waves forming steady background sounds, the Pinnacles Desert is an otherworldly landscape. The sand is fine and similar to what one would find on a beach. The constant wind from off shore has […]

Along side a road in Bhutan stands one of a thousand temples.  These temples, built over the course of the Kingdom’s history, are in some cases beautiful, in some cases plain, and in some cases in need of repair.  From the outside one can not see what beauty and splendor might be found within. And […]

Isle Lake is one of the places in Myanmar that attracts the intrepid and casual traveler alike. There is a sense of exotic serenity as one reads about the lake and contemplates visiting. Self-induced images of a hotel room perched on long narrow stilts above the lake surface, traveling during the day by boat with […]

After hiking most of the morning, and about 50% of that time hiking up a narrow switchback trail, I reached Mackinnon Pass. I’d climbed from about 300 meters that morning to 1,150 meters by lunch time. It was a hard but fun hike, and near the top I was rewarded with this view, looking back […]

I can’t help but think of an alien ocean when I see this image captured in April 2013 during my visit to the Tasman Sea coast of Tasmania. While the Bay of Fires area is know primarily for the red lichen covered rocks that dot the coast line, there are also other incredible scenes, such […]

Upper Antelope Canyon, located outside of Page, Arizona, is one of those “must visit” places for a photographer.  Quite simply put, it is an amazing place.  Alas, the number of people in the canyon can create a serious human traffic jam, as I’ve been told has become the normal…along with photographers and tripods lined up […]

Not far from Mandalay, but still an effort to get to, is the ancient imperial capital of Inwa. Throughout Myanmar’s history, Inwa has been built, destroyed, and rebuilt numerous times. Thankfully, some of the incredible structures, such as the Bagaya Monastery, have survived. First built in 1593, this is a large monastery build from teak […]

North of Yangon sits the city of Bago, a popular rest point for those heading to the Golden Rock. Ago is also known for it’s pottery, and the area has many workshops where individuals labor day in and day out throwing, molding, pounding, and then firing clay pots. The pots are used for anything and […]

I was on a little walk from my hotel into Queenstown, on New Zealand’s South Island, prior to my Milford Track trip when I came onto this scene. I was still experimenting with my new Nikon D800E camera and associated lenses, and had taken the camera and a couple of lenses with me on the […]

Located an hour or so south of Trongsa, Bhutan, this wonderful nunnery was a visual feast of color, light, and people.  After lunch, just three of us visited the nunnery and had the temple all to ourselves.  We could move amongst the praying nuns, and photograph anything except the alter.  Row after row of yellow […]
