In early Spring 2013 (that would be October, due to being in the Southern Hemisphere), I flew down to the South Island of New Zealand to hit a few stunning landscape spots that had been on my radar for a while: the glaciers of the west coast, Mt Cook National Park, and the stunningly beautiful […]

The Beauty of Sunrise

There is an inherent beauty and peacefulness that one encounters when photographing Uluru at sunrise. I had the pleasure of arriving 20-30 minutes before anybody else at this location, and the peacefulness was unlike almost anything I’d ever experienced. It was quite and it was still, and as a result a sense of solitude permeated […]

Knox Gorge wasn’t my favorite, but it was still very good. I think the problem was that Karijini National Park had so many incredible gorges, that Knox just didn’t stand up to the others. Take Knox and put it anywhere else, and it would be incredible; alas, it was fighting against its close siblings, and […]

The day after a Winter storm dumped several inches on Bryce Canyon National Park, I found myself battleing the extreme (-28F) cold to take some images of the Park’s Amphitheater. This image was captured my first full day in the park, just hours after the snow storm had ended. I headed first to some of […]

Just moments after arriving at Karijini National Park and checking into my tent at the Ecolodge, I was off to defend into one of the Park’s gorges, Joffre Gorge. I remember it as being a relatively easy hike down into the gorge, though others have told me it was difficult. Maybe my excitement of having […]

Walking through Canyon X, near Page, Arizona, it quickly became apparent that the photographic opportunities were numerous, and the only limitation would be time. There is fun and challenges to be had photographing slot canyons, where one can focus on the big picture or the small details, focus on the gentle curves of the sandstone […]

I’m back!  Some technical issues caused my website to go haywire over the past month, precluding me from posting images each day.  Alas, since this isn’t my full time job, rectifying the issues took a backseat for a while.  But, thanks to a great web developer, I’m back up and running!  And, to celebrate, I’m […]

Well, I’ve been quite remiss about posting images over the past month.  It’s amazing how quickly I can get out of the habit.  Get busy with work, through in a few business trips, and then top it all off with hard drive crashes and problems, and posting a daily images falls by the wayside.  Thankfully, […]

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 […]
