I’m not sure why, but over the past week or so I’ve found myself looking at this image more and more.  The more I have thought about it, I think it has to do with the man’s eyes.  What is he looking at?  What has grabbed his attention, while his fellow worshippers are looking into the […]

After a decent day in the SUV, traveling from Punakha to Trongsa in Bhutan, we visited the Trongsa Dzong. There, behind one of the temples in an area with a long strip of grass, a group of young monks was playing their version of lawn darts. I spent a while photographing the monks throwing the […]

I clearly remember taking this image. I was driving along a completely deserted road in the middle of New Zealand’s South Island. The road was packed dirt, had no markings, and was just wide enough for two cars to pass. But, off to one side, were these beautiful snowcapped mountains. I was driving to take […]

A shot of the nightly Wonder Full show at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands.  This show is Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show, and is simply spectacular.  The lights turn different colors during the 13 minute show, and here they are shown mostly with a white hue.  The entire show lights up the night sky–not […]

Weano Gorge’s Handrail Pool is one of the “must visit” spots in Karijini National Park. It’s easily accessible, just a easy hike down into and then along Weano Gorge. Of course, then you come to the section just before the pool, which is more difficult given how the gorge walls come together, the water picks […]

Do you have an image that, whenever you see it, the memory just makes you smile? This is one of those images for me. Every time I see it, I can’t help but get a smile on my face as I remember how much fun it was to be in this place. I’d traveled to […]

This image is the “accompanying image” to what is probably my favorite image captured at Karijini National Park.  By that I mean that I like this image, and as a stand alone image it is very good.  But, compared with what I was able to also capture in almost this exact spot—just facing a different […]

Well, I finally got around today to updating my United States gallery.  The images I’ve added were form my trip to the Southwest last December.  I’ll never forget the biting cold I experienced during my few days at Bryce Canyon National Park, which was literally the coldest temperatures I had ever experienced. I hope you […]

Australia knows how to throw a party. Be it for New Years, Australia Day, or any other special day, the Australian’s don’t need an excuse to have a good bash. The Centennial Anniversary of the Australian Navy was no exception, and in October 2013, there was a party to prove it. Rumors swirled for weeks […]

Having traveled the world and experienced many significant religious building, I can say that without a doubt the Blue Mosque in Istanbul is one of the greatest.  It isn’t the biggest or the most ornate, but it is an incredible site. I visited the Blue Mosque several times while in Istanbul.  Having arrived in Turkey […]
