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.
On this day driving to Wrangell – St. Elias National Park the skies were bright and clear. I was also lucky enough to catch this scene right at the peak of fall season. It is the colors, including the red on the mountain side that I enjoy. The landscape driving to and from Valdez contained every color imaginable during the second weekend in September 2009.
The peacefulness of a Colorado winter. This was taken after a fairly large storm on top of Loveland pass. The sky was dark and with the early morning light this photo shows the dramatic in black and white and yet the peacefulness of winter.

After a very dry beginning of March, the Colorado ski areas finally got over a foot of snow with a blizzard. They needed every inch of it. This was right after the storm subsided and there was still blowing snow atop of Loveland pass. Early in the morning, the sky was lit up with an orange-pink fire, blowing snow, and here were a few skiers that were all set to take advantage of the fresh powder and great conditions in Colorado.
This picture was taken of the small mountain town of Rhonda, Spain. As you walk through the town it is very rare that you are not either walking downhill or uphill. I found this to be a very unique place with all of the white washed buildings, with red tile roofs and cobblestone streets.
This picture was taken at La Alhambre in Granada, Spain. La Alhambre has existed since the 9th century. The Palace at Alhambre is square on the outside and circular on the inside. Many musical performances have been recorded here for media. This picture is a favorite of mine because of the architectural lines and the story it tells of the two meeting at the bottom of the staircase.
This photo was taken in the old mountain village of Ronda in Malaga, Spain. Ronda is divided in two by the Guadalevín River creating a large gorge that can only be crossed by one tall stone bridge. This is an image of one side of the town looking over the gorge to the other. The countryside along with the never changing town structure made this town incredibly picturesque.
This photo of the Denver Capitol building I like for the framing of this picture. The tree and the arm of the tree that reaches up frames the top, while the walkway lighted by lamps provide framing on the left hand side. Between both of these I feel they draw your eye to the capitol building toped with the red light.
The blue mystique of the sky with the billowing clouds, the fog rising from the lake with the dark tree line on the horizon. I wonder if the trees were not there if you could tell the difference from the lake to the sky. Alaska can be so peaceful and calming, this is only one image.
This almost, other-worldly photo was taken at 3:40 am on the road from Anchorage to Telkeetna. Driving along the highway early morning after flying into Alaska I noticed this lake with the unbelievable mirror image and color. After being awake all night I was so happy to see a bit of light starting to show, but even more I knew these images would be a great start to an amazing trip. I am happy to say I was not disappointed.
This photo was taken after running the stairs at Red Rocks amphitheater. As I was heading back to my car I noticed this scene and had to take a picture. The sky really was pink and by the time I had my camera ready the sky only intensified and left this amazing glow on the rocks.
