In May 2012, while I was in Bhutan, the King got married.  The ceremony was extremely elaborate, and occurred both in the capital city of Thimphu, and the ancient dzong of Punakha.  Punakha Dzong is the second oldest and second largest dzong in all of Bhutan, and it had been cleaned, scrubbed, and decorated as […]

While most people visit the middle of Australia to visit Uluru (Ayerss Rock), the national park that contains Uluru also has another incredible geologic formation: Kata Tjuta, also know as Mount Olga.  While the pure simplicity of Uluru is hard to top, with it’s near vertical walls thrusting the monolith out of the ground, I […]

It was cold. It was windy. And, it was stunningly beautiful. All this applies to Chele Pass, which I visited for the second time in the early morning hours during my most recent trip to Bhutan. I focused on the grand vistas viewable from the high altitude of Chele Pass as the sun rose above […]

From the Knox Gorge lookout at Karijini National Park it is actually possible to see the confluence of three gorges: Red, Knox and Wittenoom. I didn’t get a chance to hike in Wittenoom, and now that I’m back and found the name of this gorge I don’t even remember anybody saying it was possible to […]

A nice stroll along Lake Wakatipu is one of the highlights of any visit to Queenstown.  The lake has a wonderful alpine feel to it, with the Remarkables Mountains in the background.  The city has done a great job at putting parks and lots of paths along the lake front, which makes a stroll a […]

So, my recent trip to Karijini National Park has meant that I’ve focused more on processing those images, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other images that need to be processed.  Just days after getting back from Karijini, the Australian Navy hosted the International Fleet Review 2013 in commemoration of the Navy’s 100th anniversary.  It […]

Of all the gorges at Karijini National Park, Hancock Gorge was my favorite. The rock formations, colors, narrow spaces, and pools created a near infinite number of photographic possibilities. Despite capturing the many faces of Hancock during my two excursions into the gorge, a small handful of images stand above the rest. This is one […]

Dales Gorge has two main attractions. The first is Fortescue Falls, a beautiful cascade of rushing water that falls maybe 20 meters over the sharp lines of the Western Australian rock. The second is Circular Pool which, unlike the power of Fortescue, is a place of tranquility. I visited Circular Pool twice. Once during the […]

The Pinnacles are limestone formations located within Nambung National Park, located about 160 kilometers north of Perth in Western Australia. These formations, of which there are at least several thousand, are quite a sight to see and worth the effort to get to Nambung. Located within sight of the Indian Ocean, with the roar of […]
