Waves crashing show how the rock formation known as the Toilet Bowl at Portlock got its name. Years of shoreline wear have cracked the basalt shelf in a way that seems to aggravate otherwise energetic oceanic conditions creating the aquatic chaos...
This was my first trip to these wonderful falls in Dunsmuir, CA. Within 15 minutes of arrival, I had managed to smother the inner side of my long-sleeved t-shirt with moss and mud, and the backside of my shorts with mud and water. I often get really...
Soon, our mountains will be alive with the colors of Autumn. A blue sky reappears following an afternoon rain shower. A view of Grandfather Mountain (mostly hidden by clouds), Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina (previous autumn - we do not have...
With one full day of really clear weather I headed south from Jasper on the Icefields Parkway, dubbed the most beautiful scenic drive in the world, and I have to agree! I moved as quickly as possible throughout the morning light to drive the parkway...
Peyto Lake's gorgeous turquoise color is attributed to the intense glacial flower that fills the lake and is refracted by the light. This is a 3-image HDR shot combined via Photomatix
Lake Louise has been photographed over and over and over again, so I wanted to get something different. The canoes sitting here with the dramatic sky overhead provided exactly what I wanted.
I wish I knew the name of this mountain, the reflection in the very low river was quite striking. Two days later after some rain this entire low lying area was underwater.
Stormy skies near sunset provide great opportunities with clouds that are whisking by. I setup and shot for about 20 minutes getting all kinds of various lighting conditions. This one was my favorite of the series.

1000 Islands Lake in Zhejiang province, China. A Mystical place, the soft light only added to the fantastic atmosphere here!
The night was quiet at West Lake, besides the strange sounds (one tone always was particularly off) emanating from this pavilion, where a private concert was held, using a classical Chinese flute. The perfect background music for me while setting up...
Winding teafields in the Hangzhouvian mountains. This is where the famous Longjing tea is cultivated!
