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…

Roman Sunset

These eight columns standing firm in silhouette as the sun sets on yet another day have done so for at least 600,000 days, perhaps as many as 913,000 days. This is what is left of the Temple of Saturn, which was an integral part of the Roman Forum during the Empire’s rule of the known world. The…

Green Sunset

The remnants of light from the setting sun illuminate the clouds and reflect beautifully on the placid water along the edge of Green River. This is near the Green River Campground inside Dinosaur National Monument. It’s a serene place to camp because of the water and the dark sky, except for when the silent night is broken…

Good Shepherd Sunset

This is the Church of the Good Shepherd on the edge of Lake Tekapo on New Zealand’s South Island. The church was originally built in 1935 and still has regular services. According to meckenziechurch.org, all the stones for the church were sourced within a 5 mile radius, yet none of the existing stones or bushes near…

Sunset In Paradise

Life seems to move at a slower pace when living on an island. Yet, life’s ability to overcome disaster can be seemingly quick and simultaneously painfully slow. I took this image almost a year to the day after typhoon Haiyan devastated the island of Bantayan, like so many of the other islands in the Philippine archipelago….

Blessed

In photography there is a certain amount of skill involved, and then it’s about being in the right place, at the right time and with the right piece of gear. I took this image of the Garden of the Gods from the Mesa Road overlook in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I have been to this spot…

The Great Sand Sunset

The year 2015 has drawn to an end and it seems fitting to celebrate it with a sunset photo that I took earlier this year while visiting Great Sand Dunes National Park. This has been a great year and I look forward to many new adventures in 2016! See you next year!
