Zimbabwe Sunset

A look at the setting sun through the dense under brush in Zimbabwe… a Zimbabwe sunset. Many people dread the idea of ever having to step foot on the dark continent. The entire continent is seemingly a place full of tragic misery, but it has beauty that is hard to match in the rest of…

Sunset on Cascade Creek

In the heart of New Zealand’s Fjordland National Park and along the road to the Milford Sound lies a campground on Cascade Creek. We parked here for the night before heading through the tunnel to the Milford Sound the following day. It was rainy as we pulled into the campground, which is more of a…

Whariwharangi Bay

Need a reason to fly halfway around the world, drive for nearly a day, take an hour-long taxi-boat, and then hike for 6 miles? You’ll get this secluded beach and sunset all to yourself, plus all the adventure and beauty of getting here. This is Whariwharangi Bay. It is the northernmost bay on the Able…

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…

North Shore Sunset

Another summer day and another post about a far-flung Caribbean Island…. Maybe I am projecting towards where I want to be right now. I took this sunset photo onĀ Jamaica’sĀ North Shore about half way between Montego Bay and Falmouth. There is a little restaurant here and not much else. It is really only a kitchen with…

A Florida Sunset for the Birds

Why is it that simple scenes, like this Florida sunset, can invoke such peace in our souls? I took this image of the seagulls in the setting sun at Venice Beach, Florida. It is a great spot to sit and let your life slow down for a moment, watching as the small gulf waves roll…

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…

Sunset on Open Water

A beautiful view of the setting sun to close out the day after a full day of exploring the tiny Caribbean island of Martinique. I’m not a huge fan of cruises because I’d much rather spend more time at the destinations engrossing myself in the culture. Fourteen hours in a place is hardly enough time…

Tekapo

There are some places that I’ve been to that just stand out in my memory as clear as if I were standing there today. Lake Tekapo is one of those places. I remember looking at it on the map while planning our trip to New Zealand, and thinking, “oh yeah, we should probably plan on…
