A New Zealand Sunrise

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. It seems as though every square inch is covered in ever-changing beauty. The gorgeous fjords and the southern alps of the South Island are only rivaled by the rolling green hills and ruggedly breathtaking volcanoes found on the North Island. No other…

In the Red Rock

Another look at the gorgeous red rock formations found in Colorado Spring’s Garden of the Gods Park. If you have never been here I can’t recommend this spot enough. The popularity of the park makes a visit a little challenging on weekends, especially during the summer months, but go on a weekday during the winter…

Motion of the Night

Of all photography types, I think night photography is the hardest, yet most rewarding. The first time I really tried it, I was on safari in Zimbabwe. We were so remote that there was no visible light pollution. The sky was filled with the light of the universe. I was captivated. I spent hours taking…

Jatropha Tree Flower

Hey! Happy December everyone! I hope you all had a great and restful Thanksgiving holiday. Jennifer and I were actually traveling for the majority of the month. Not very restful, but we have had fun. I had a job event in Florida for a few weeks and then we remained in Florida to spend some…

Hong Kong’s Orchid

Hong Kong and the surrounding islands are very tropical and home to many beautiful species of flowers. This is the Orchid Bauhinia flower, which is represented on the flag of Hong Kong. It is the national flower of the region. My wife and I were only there for three days, but found this flower in abundance…

Dinosaur Bend

This is where the Yampa and Green Rivers meet in a bend inside of Dinosaur National Monument. It is a very nice place to swim and cool off on a hot Summer’s day. This is the terminus for the Echo Park Road.

Waterton Overlook

This is the view from the terminus of The Bears Hump trail in Waterton Lake National Park. Waterton is located in Canada, but it and Glacier National Park, in the US, make up the world’s first International Peace Park. The views within the park are truly breathtaking. The wildlife for me was the real attraction….

Ice Earring

No, this isn’t an earring, but when I first saw it I thought someone had left an earring out overnight. This is actually far cooler. It is a pine needle that somehow looped itself and was hanging off the side of a dried up fountain. It snowed the night before and the needle had collected flakes, creating…

Sunset Over XingPing

This is the view from the top of Lao Chai Hill in XingPing, China. The karst mountains here are very famous amongst the Chinese people. In fact, the mountains appear on the back of their 20 CNY banknote. My wife and I traveled to some very remote places while visiting China and this was no exception. XingPing…

Slot Cave

This is a cave inside of the Colorado side of Dinosaur National Monument. On the summer day we visited, the air inside was cool, even though feet away, at the opening, the temperature skyrocketed to the high 90s. The cave is rather unique because on either side of the central rock are slots that go straight…

Yellow Flowers

It is amazing the way light and shadow can play out in a photo. These flowers are beautiful and yet light is what pulls focus and highlights the beauty.

Arches Scaled

Arches National Park is home to some colossal rock formations—carved by water, wind, and time. The scale of the rock arches can be hard to fathom. That is why I love this photo. The size of this rock formation (Double Arch) can really be visualized when my wife’s silhouette is used as a reference. This…
