  Near Freycinet National Park in Tasmania, lies Friendly Beaches. These beaches didn’t come up when I was doing trip research, but were recommended to me by the people who ran the cottage I was staying at. I’m so glad they did. I visited first one afternoon and had the entire beach to myself. I […]

First Myanmar Image

Okay, so it’s not really the first image I’m sharing from Myanmar; I did post one image once I was back online.  But, this is the first image that’s gone through a complete editing process and is just about ready to go “final.”  I usually let my images sit for a few weeks in the […]

There is something special about having a new experience. I’d never been in a slot canyon before I traveled to Page, Arizona in December 2013, to visit several. I remember walking into the first canyon I visited, Secret Canyon, and was just amazed. There was a solitude to the canyon since there were only three […]

  I had seen pictures of Secret Falls, near Hobart, Tasmania, while preparing for my trip to the island State located off the south coast of Australia. Alas, while there were general directions to its location, the directions were vague, to say the least. I tried to find it my first day in Hobart, but […]

The Stars of Milford Sound

Milford Sounds, South Island, New Zealand
Nikon D800e, Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T*; 30 stacked images; 25 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 1600

The night I had in Milford Sound was just like the weather I experienced the previous 4 days on the Track: perfect.  I had hoped since booking my Milford Track experience that the sky over Milford Sound would be clear, allowing me to do some astrophotography.  I wasn’t disappointed, as only a few thin clouds […]

  Not from from Freycinet National Park in Tasmania, is Friendly Beaches. I’m not sure why it is “beaches” instead of just one “beach,” especially given that it is just one long sandy beach on the Tasman Sea. But, that is neither here nor there. Friendly Beaches are very friendly…just how friendly? Well, a nice […]

The Wall in Ruins

I’m processing images from Myanmar and Cambodia as quickly as I can, and hope to have some to post next week.  But, in the meantime, I’m heading back in time, both literally and technologically. Today’s Photo of the Day was shot using on my trust Zeiss Ikon film camera, probably using Kodak E100VS film.  While […]

The Glow of Sunrise

I had several mornings at the Bay of Fires to photograph sunrise, and I made good use of my time there. There aren’t actually that many angle from which to photograph this amazing tree that grows out of the lichen covered rock, but I tried a few while there. The sun rose this morning in […]

Kermit’s Approach

Karijini National Park, Western Australia, Australia

Each step further into the gorges of Karijini National Park is like a step towards the center of the Earth. Each step takes you further down into the gorge; the colors become more vibrant; the rock overhead casts a longer shadow; and the gorge walls begin to narrow, hiding from view what is around the […]
