Cherry Creek Bridge

This is a different angle of the Cherry Creek Bridge, looking back towards Castlewood Canyon. I took this image with my drone. It is strange to see this landscape from the air. It looks relatively flat, but when you are in the canyon it is anything but. Castlewood Canyon is a Colorado state park and…

Let Freedom Ring

I took this image last month before watching the 4th of July fireworks at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. I was trying to capture the gorgeous Colorado sunset, but this little girl was having way too much fun splashing around and throwing mud into the lake to allow me a clear shot. In the back…

Water World

I grew up in Tennessee, an entirely landlocked state in the US. I now live in Colorado which is about as far from an ocean as a person can get.  I remember watching movies growing up where people were depicted living entirely on the ocean—a water world. That idea intrigued me as a young boy….

Pyramid of the Magician

When I think of pyramids, I picture isolated ruins standing alone as monuments to the ancient civilizations that created them. The ancient Mayan Pyramid of the Magician isn’t like that at all. At 131′ high this pyramid does tower over the surrounding flat land of the Yucatan Peninsula, but it doesn’t stand alone. It stands like…

Lost at Sea

A young teenager seemingly lost at sea…. He stood there on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico for a long while watching the waves roll in upon the north Florida shore. All the while he stood resolute as if waiting for something to happen. It is nice to slow down in life and just…

Bridging Oceans

You are looking at a crossroads between land and sea, ocean and ocean, and really the world. The bridge in the background is the Centennial Bridge that allows Panama City, Panama’s traffic to cross over the historic Panama Canal. From this road you can eventually explore all of North America (given the proper visas anyways)….

Island Children

These children are growing up on a tiny island in the middle of the Philippine Sea. They have little more than the clothes on their backs. (The kid in the lower right didn’t even have that… he greeted us the way he first greeted the world—butt naked!) Despite their seemingly impoverished lives these island children…

Freedom Isn’t Free

Far too often Memorial Day is thought of as a day we get to take off work, the beginning of summer, or an opportunity to break out the bar-b-que and have a party with friends and loved ones. Those are great things, but Memorial Day is truly about remembering those who gave their lives so that we are…
