New Machu Picchu and Peru Photos Coming Soon

I just got back from a trip to Peru. While I was there I saw several Inca ruins including Machu Picchu. I was fortunate to be there for two exceptional days including one stormy afternoon with dark skies surrounding Machu Picchu with the sun shinning on the ruins. The next morning I witnessed the mist, fog and clouds slowly reveal the amazing site of Machu Picchu. Please check back soon as these pictures will soon be available.

HDR – Denver

This is a location in Denver I have wanted to shoot the Denver Cityscape for a long time. Now that I am getting into HDR I thought this would be the perfect location to try out some HDR shots. This shot however happened as I finished up shooting the city scape and headed back to my car and I saw this big neon sign with the dramatic sky above. Please check out the rest of this gallery by clicking on the link below. More images will be added soon to this gallery.

New Mexico

This was one of my favorite galleries and shots. The isolation of this place I tried to capture though these photos. The dirt road to get there was long and slow, with nothing in site for an hour. When I arrived I saw one Jeep pull into this area, then within minutes it turned around and headed out . I stayed for several hours enjoying and photographing the serenity, the uniqueness of this landscape, while wondering if my Subaru had what it takes for me to eventually leave… Please check out the rest of the gallery by clicking on the link below.

This photo was taking looking up in a slot canyon of Arizona, while on a road trip phtographing Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. The way the light reflects off the walls that has been eroded away from water, to create depth and definition of the sandstone walls is brilliant. It is truly an otherworldly and a spiritual place to be.

Photography Bucket List

Some of my favorite photos I have taken are the ones that can not be planned, but with all the discussions, show and movies about bucket lists it got me to thinking about a photography bucket list and what mine would look like.  Here are some items on my photography bucket list.  What is on yours?  Have you accomplished any of them?  Share your photos?

October Photo

Monteverde Yellow Flower in Costa Rica

In the Monteverde Cloud Forrest everything was so lush and green. To my surprise the flowers there were small and delicate. This was one of the larger flowers I saw there. The crisp dainty yellow on the black background makes this a strong image. These little delicate flowers left me wondering how they could survive any big rainstorms.

Practically a Sleeping Grizzly

This Grizzley bear was practially asleep on this log. His head was so heavy he could barely change his head to the other side of the log.
