Taking the Plunge at Krka Falls, Croatia

I never thought the cascades would end. We started at the top and kept following the falls all the way down. The grass was growing in the falls and all around it. I had been to alot of falls, but this one was so different and by far my favorite. It is so accessble at points along it’s banks, making photography very fun and interesting. Krka Falls is located about an hours drive out of Split, Croatia, which is straight east of Venice, across the Adriatic Sea.

Boulders on Northern California Coast

The fog had lifted somewhat and patches of blue started to appear. Pretty normal summer weather along the California Coast. We manage to make it up along the coast each year, typically in the summer, when weather in Phoenix is blistering hot. It’s a great change and one of the best places for coastal photography with coves, cliffs, mountainous regions and of course fog!

Carlsbad Caverns Eery Formations, New Mexico

You truly are in a different world when you travel 800 feet below ground, into this mammoth cavern. It use to be our hang-out years ago, as we toured and performed in local towns around the area, such as Carlsbad, New Mexico. This trip was exclusively for shooting the cavern and seemed so different and surreal, then years ago. We had a new found respect for this amazing place. Photographs cannot truly capture how alive your senses are, when drifting through nature’s work of art. You lose perspective of time and space. In the main cavern, cool air currents flow by you at a constant 56 degrees. That’s pretty tolerable.

It’s hard to get a sense of distance and depth, but my guess is, the farthest wall in the photo is probably 200 feet in away.

Totem Pole, Sitka, Alaska

Many Totem Poles can be found as you hike the paths through Sitka National Historic Park in Alaska. Thought I’d turn the photo to black and white, and then colorize back in the original colors in Photoshop. It’s interesting to see how many different variations the native indians came up with, for their unique totem pole. Sitka is one of my favorite Alaskan towns. It’s easy to walk and enjoy this quaint part of Alaska. For some reason, each visit here has had the best weather, and maybe that’s why I want to keep coming back.

Snowy Tracks along the Romantic Road in Germany

Can anyone see the snow coming down? I get a kick out of photographing tracks. This one caught my attention because of the snow coming down and I’m always looking for “leading lines” in photography. The lines of the tracks lead you through the photo, down the tracks to where they look like their eventually touching. I put the tripod as low as it would go, and balanced the tracks in the middle. Look for “leading lines” in nature and you will probably find yourself creating a nice interesting photo to share.

West Virginia Wandering Cascades

Autumn this year was blazing colorful in West Virgina, but they had such a dry season , one could hardly find any nice waterfalls. So I dug through my arsenal of photos from my last trip and found this beautiful cascade, which has no name, that I could find. It just happened to be on a country back road, just waiting for me to find. It was completely gone this year, so I reminisce.

Amish Country Bed and Breakfast

Lancaster, Pa., has Bed & Breakfast scattered through-out the towns and countryside. We often search out these B&B’s looking for Victorian flairs when we can find them. This particular one had a down home country cottage feel. Just right for a an overnight stay.  The way we travel, with landscape photography in mind, doesn’t always lend itself to totally relaxing and enjoying these kinds of places. But if I can find a porch, it becomes a perfect night for just sitting out and enjoying each others company. Try it sometime, you might like it.

Full Moon at Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park

A planned trip to Yosemite during Full Moon paid off this past September. The haze from forest fires lingering on the horizon. It was a beautiful calm night from Glacier Point, looking east across Grizzly Point. As it got dark, hikers coming down from Vernal Falls looked like lightning bugs scattered across the trails.

Autumn Hay Fields in West Virginia

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Daily Photo:

I love to just get on a plane, sometimes not much planning in advance, rent a car and then go wildly and freely into the country. I watched the Internet for peak season in West Virginia this year, so to best plan a fly back and take advantage of changing colors of fall. West Virgina is a great place for leaf-peeping. This country road was blazing with color, so I got off the Freeway and just let it take me into the hills. No traffic, no people around, just the horses, cows and me. So Happy Thankgiving to you all, and may we gives thanks for our blessings, and help those less fortunate then ourselves.

Along the Roof Tops of Rothenberg,Germany

It’s quite a climb through the narrow spiral staircase that takes one to the top of the City Hall Tower. I kept thinking how can these steps get any narrower and they did. By the time I climbed through what was now a hole to the top, it got pretty queasy. They would only allow a certain number of tourist up on top of the tower at a time, which was a good thing considering how cramped the space was. But wow, what a view. With fresh snow from the night before blanketing the roof tops and countryside in the distance, it was quite breathtaking. With screening all around you, finding a hole to poke your camera through was a challenge. I would definitely say, Rothenburg was one of the more scenic towns on the Romantic Road in Germany. It was snowing the 1st day we arrived, and that for us, made it even more special.
