Well, just in time for my next trip (which begins tomorrow), I’m finally able to post a new gallery for my last trip, Tasmania.  You can see the gallery here.  Today’s photo of the day was taken my first evening in Tasmania, so it’s fitting that I sign off for a few weeks of travel […]

Over the past year or so, some of the gear listed on my Gear page has become outdated.  So, I’ve updated that to reflect the change in both hardware and software I’ve been using.  The biggest software change has been the addition and frequent use of Visual Supply Company’s Film Collections.  I liked using DxO’s […]

Rushing Towards Me

There are so many instances where a photograph does not do the scene justice. This is one such example. I had hiked down into Hancock Gorge at Karijini National Park and made my way to Kermits Pool. It was still early in the morning, and nobody else was in the gorge with me. After spending […]

Sunrise Over the Bay of Fires

I was one of several photographers who work up early this morning to capture the sunrise of Tasmania’s Bay of Fires, known for the red and orange hues created by lichen on the rocks along the shoreline. This tree is photographed frequently, as it has seemingly grown straight out of hard rock and survived the […]

The Unknown Ruin

I wish I could remember the name of this ruin near Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I think it might be Prasat Suor Prat, but I’m not sure. I took this image early in my photographic journey, during one of the first trips I ever embarked upon mainly to capture images. It was a […]

Huangshan (Yellow Mountains) is one of the best places to visit in China if you like stunning landscapes, steep hikes, and dramatic photographic opportunities. I’ve only been once, and am very glad I had the chance to get there. I was an avid photographer at the time, but it was still early in my photographic […]

Early Spring at Mt. Cook

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

Uluru, Northern Territory, Australia

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 I

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 […]
