Mexican Spider

Anyone who knows me well at all knows that I am a bit arachnophobic. That is why it is very weird that I have a fascination with taking photos of spiders. All I know about this spider is that it’s of the orb variety and that it lived in a very picturesque cactus tree overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Colorado Bison

The North American Bison, sometimes more commonly and incorrectly referred to as the American Buffalo, is an iconic creature. These massive creatures once dominated the central planes of North America. So much so that for many years these creatures became synonymous with the American West. It is thought that as many as 60,000,000 once roamed…

Bolivian Train

The freedom that a train provides doesn’t mean much to the average American because while much of our industry rides the rails, we do not. On many of my adventures around the world, the train has opened up locations on the globe that I couldn’t have afforded to travel to without this form of transit….

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…

An African Commute

A few years back I spent a month in Zimbabwe. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to traverse the country seeing all the immense beauty that there is in the African wildlife and landscapes. The thing that blew me away the most was seeing its people going about their daily lives, full of hardship and manual labor,…

Nevada Fall

This is Nevada Fall, located on the east end of Yosemite Valley. It is a strenuous 5.4 mile hike up 2000 feet to the top of the Fall from the Happy Isles area, along the Mist Trail. This is the second waterfall along the trail. You’ll need to hike past Vernal Fall to get to this picturesque spot….

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…

Castillo de San Cristobal

San Juan, Puerto Rico, the capital city of a territory owned by the United States, is also the second oldest European capital city in the Americas. It has many historical structures. This is Castillo de San Cristobal. It is one of two forts in the capital city. The complex is massive and very fun to explore.
