Located an hour or so south of Trongsa, Bhutan, this wonderful nunnery was a visual feast of color, light, and people.  After lunch, just three of us visited the nunnery and had the temple all to ourselves.  We could move amongst the praying nuns, and photograph anything except the alter.  Row after row of yellow […]

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 […]

While the landscape of Karijini National Park is varied between the different gorges, I found myself shooting at the Knox Gorge lookout a few times during my trip. Not only was it easily accessible, but the point of view was magnificent. With the setting sun casting light on the top of the gorge, the colors […]

  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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
