UK Bath London-132-Pano

Friday Photo – Bath from Bath Abbey

I really enjoy shooting panoramic photographs - there's no better way to capture the scope and scale of a scene.  Normally this involves a tripod, leveling and pano heads, and a lot of fiddling - none of which can you do while on tour at the top of an ancient Abbey in Bath, UK.  This [...]

Friday Photo – Critters in Alaskan Waters

On our first trip to Alaska, we visited Valdez and Prince William Sound.  It's a real fishing town, with an influx of tourists staying mostly in RV's and a few motels and B&B's, that reminded us of what the Colorado mountain towns were like back when we were growing up. We wanted to take a [...]

Iconic Yellowstone

A few years back my wife and I toured Yellowstone before meeting my dad for a fly fishing boat trip.  It was a beautiful afternoon, warm and sunny, with the shadows just starting to appear.  The moon came over the horizon, and this guy looked up at me - a classic Yellowstone postcard. There were [...]

Truffles

Friday Photo – Hound in the Snow

We lost Truffles this week.  He was our sweet springer spaniel, a two year old heart in a 13 year old body.  Feisty and sweet, easy going and fierce.  Our cats are sleeping on the dog bed, waiting for him to come by to snuggle, and our golden is running upstairs to find him (and [...]

Rain Forest Fern

Maybe it's because I live in an arid climate, but the rain forest has always fascinated me.  The lush foliage grows so fast you can almost watch it uncurl.  These emerging ferns are a particular favorite - I love how the light glows through them, softened by the overhead canopy.

Alaskan Eagle in the Mist

This image combines two things I've been fortunate to see several times over the years - Alaska, and bald eagles in the wild.  Both stir the soul and touch the wild in all our hearts.  The second day of our boat tours into Prince William Sound was cold, rainy and cloudy.  I was set to [...]

Lily at the Hilo Zoo

I admit it, I'm a sucker for lily ponds.  I'm not sure if it's because I really liked Kermit as a kid, or just the serenity of the scene (or maybe a bit of both).  The Hilo zoo has an amazing pond, and it's been in bloom every time I visit. Now all I need [...]

Welsh Angel

Every once in a while, a quick snapshot turns out to be far more than expected.  I snapped this of my wife on a whim while we were walking down the street in Llandudno, Wales.  Her family has roots there, and we'd been visiting - it's an incredibly peaceful city, just the right place to [...]

Denali on a ‘clear’ day

Visiting Denali national park is always spectacular, and no matter the weather, there's always good shooting.  If it's rainy or overcast the critters come out, and if the sun's shining, you might be one of the 30% of visitors who get to see the peak itself.  This was on our last day of the trip, [...]

Friday Photo – Flying Sea Lion in the Great Southern Ocean

When we were in Tasmania, we took a photo cruise down into the great southern ocean.  The scenery was spectacular (I'll share those another time), and there was tons of wildlife.  On an island off the south tip there was a huge colony of sea lions basking on the rocks.  Somehow this one had climbed, [...]
