I sold a 16 X 24 metal print of this image last weekend. Everyone loves Venice and this image has been very popular. I captured this image from Rialto Bridge in the early morning. It was so beautiful to see the Grand Canal illuminated against the dawn sky without any boats to disturb the reflections.

I have sold several prints my Lake Bled Dawn image recently. This beautiful alpine lake has a small island with a medieval church. It is such a picturesque spot and almost looks like a fairytale. I got up early to catch the dawn light and was lucky to have these beautiful clouds reflected in the still waters of the lake. I was surprised at how many people know about Lake Bled and the popularity of this image.

Last year I visited Slovenia for the first time. It is a wonderful, compact country and my favorite place was Lake Bled. This alpine lake has an historic church on the small island in the middle of the lake which has been a destination of pilgrims for many centuries. One morning I got up early to shoot this picturesque sight at sunrise and I was able to capture the rising sun peeking behind from the clouds and the bell tower. It was such a beautiful sight!

Prague is one of my favorite cities and the Charles Bridge is perhaps the most iconic structure in the city. It is also one of the oldest monuments in Prague dating back to the 14th century. Its namesake is King Charles IV who was the most famous monarch in Czech history. I like this view from the opposite river bank with the city lights reflected in the still waters of the river. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

Recently I sold a 20 X 30 metal print of my Canola & Clouds image. I like the simplicity of this image. The dramatic clouds really stand out against the yellow canola in the foreground. Yellow and blue are always a great combination because they are opposites on the color wheel. Another nice aspect of this image is that it at first glance it is impossible to know where it was shot. It could easily be somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, but actually I shot this when I was traveling in the Czech Republic. Many thanks to my friend and photographer Jana Vanakoura who was a great guide on my trip there.

In June we visited northern Spain. This is the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela which is the largest city in Galicia. In the middle ages many people from all over Europe walked on a pilgrimage which ended here at the cathedral. This area of Spain was never conquered by the Moors and the Pope wanted to encourage the fight against the Moors on the Iberian peninsula. So he declared that a pilgrimage to this cathedral which houses the tomb of St. James was the same spiritually as a pilgrimage to Rome. Since northwestern Spain was closer to much of northern Europe than Rome many pilgrims traveled to Santiago de Compostela in lieu of a pilgrimage to Rome. When we were there the main entrance to the cathedral was being renovated and was covered in scaffolding so I decided to shoot this view which is the back entrance to the cathedral.

Last year we visited Puerto Vallarta for the first time. Located on Mexico's Pacific coast, Puerto Vallarta is well known for its fine sunsets so one night we booked a restaurant with a fantastic view of the city. This is an image I made from the outside terrace where we had a wonderful meal. It was so beautiful to see the sun set into the Pacific with the rooftops of the city in the foreground!

When I visit a city I usually try to find a good viewpoint to shoot the skyline and then return in the late evening and early morning. Portland has a nice park along the Willamette River which has great views of the downtown buildings across the river. This image was taken from a dock which people use to launch canoes and kayaks. I like the leading lines of the dock and the bridge in this image which draw your eye to the skyline in the distance.

Granada was a Moorish kingdom in southern Spain for many centuries and Alhambra was the palace of the Moorish king. This is one of the windows of a courtyard inside the palace. Islamic art prohibits the depiction of figures so they tend to use geometric patterns and calligraphy in their designs. I just love the Islamic art in Alhambra. It is such a beautiful building!

Several years ago we visited Salt Spring Island in British Columbia. Salt Spring Island is one of the Gulf Islands which lie between Vancouver Island and the mainland. They are just north of the San Juan Islands in Washington state and are very similar in many ways. This is a view from Mt. Maxwell which is the highest point on Salt Spring Island at dawn. I just love this view of the many islands on the horizon with a beautiful dawn sky. I also like the lone tree in the foreground. I think its weathered limbs give a sense of the high altitude of this spot.

Dubrovnik is built on a peninsula that juts out into the Adriatic Sea. When I visited last year, I wanted to make an image showing the city surrounded by the sea. So I found a spot on a nearby hill with a great view and waited for the sun to go down. It was such a beautiful sight to see the city lights come on with the twilight sky in the background.

I am a big fan of Japanese gardens. This is a Zen garden at Tofukuji Temple in Kyoto. Tofukuji is one of the five great Zen temples of Kyoto or in Japanese, Kyoto Gozan. The Japanese have perfected the art of representing a large landscape in a very small area. The sand represents water and the raked patterns are waves and ripples in the water. Zen gardens are so peaceful. I could spend hours looking at this miniature landscape and never grow tired of it.

I am a big fan of Japanese gardens. This is a Zen garden at Tofukuji Temple in Kyoto. Tofukuji is one of the five great Zen temples of Kyoto or in Japanese, Kyoto Gozan. The Japanese have perfected the art of representing a large landscape in a very small area. The sand represents water and the raked patterns are waves and ripples in the water. Zen gardens are so peaceful. I could spend hours looking at this miniature landscape and never grow tired of it.

Several years ago we visited Savannah, GA and I fell in love with the historic district. There are many small parks in the historic district and many of them have fountains or statures. This is Lafayette Square. It was so beautiful in the early morning light. Such a charming city full of antebellum atmosphere.

Recently a client ordered a metal print of my Water Dance image. It was the first time I printed this on aluminum and it looks great. I like this image because it is hard to see exactly what it is. I think photographs are often more interesting when it forces the viewer to think a little.

On our recent trip to Portugal we visited the Douro Valley which is due east from Porto. This area has been producing wine grapes for many centuries. The vineyards are mostly planted on the hillsides of the valley and often there are olive trees planted between the vineyards. It is such a beautiful sight to see the sculpted hillsides with trees in between the rows of the grape vines. We were there at the end of May so the greens were particularly beautiful!

I sold a 14 X 20 framed print of my Palouse Spring image yesterday. I shot this image in 2008, but it is still one of my favorites and it has been quite popular. I just love the long shadows on the green fields with some fog in the valleys. I was on Steptoe Butte when I shot this image and the client who purchased it yesterday told me that this land was originally owned by her family who sold it to the state several generations ago. Now it is a state park open to the public.

Legend has it that Jason and the Argonauts passed through what is now Ljubljana and slew a great monster in the swamp there. The Slovenians have interpreted this monster to be a dragon and it has become a symbol of the city. The dragon bridge was built in the late 19th century when Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. It is a wonderful example of art nouveau or secessionist style which was in vogue at the time. I like this shot with the out of focus spires of the cathedral in the background.

In February this year we visited Mexico City for the first time. This image is the Palacio de Bella Artes or in English the Palace of Fine Arts which is Mexico City's opera house. Construction was started in 1904, but it was not completed until 1934. The exterior is art nouveau which was popular at the turn of the century, but the interior is art deco which was popular when it was completed. The interior has several important murals by Diego Rivera and other famous Mexican Muralists. If you ever have a chance to visit Mexico City this building is a "must see".

I sold a print of my Moeraki Boulders Sunrise image for the first time last Saturday. These large spherical boulders are called concretions. They were originally embedded in sedimentary rock and were formed by compacting of mineral cement. Since the boulders are much harder than the rock that surrounded them, they emerge as the surf erodes the softer rock that surrounded them. I love the way the dramatic light hits the clouds in this image as the sun rises above the horizon. The boulders in the foreground have an other worldly look and almost look like a herd of turtles marching out to sea.

I sold a 14 X 20 framed print of this chrysanthemum image at Kirkland Summerfest. The chrysanthemums in Japan are amazing. Because the chrysanthemum is the design for the family crest and a symbol of the emperor, Japanese have devoted considerable resources to propagating the most beautiful chrysanthemums in the world. In November many shrines and temples across Japan host chrysanthemum festivals which display the fruits of all these labors. This image was taken at the chrysanthemum festival at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa the oldest section of Tokyo.

I have sold several prints my Lake Bled Dawn image recently. This beautiful alpine lake has a small island with a medieval church. It is such a picturesque spot and almost looks like a fairytale. I got up early to catch the dawn light and was lucky to have these beautiful clouds reflected in the still waters of the lake. I was surprised at how many people know about Lake Bled and the popularity of this image.

Recently this image was licensed as a book cover in the UK. This is the Maori Meeting House at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in Paihia which is the location of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi between the British Crown and Maori chiefs in 1840. I used a wide angle lens to emphasize the face of this Maori carving with the Meeting House in the background. I think it will make a great book cover!

I sold a 16 X 24 metal print of this image last weekend. Everyone loves Venice and this image has been very popular. I captured this image from Rialto Bridge in the early morning. It was so beautiful to see the Grand Canal illuminated against the dawn sky without any boats to disturb the reflections.

I sold a 20 X 30 metal print of this image which I call Winter Forest Abstract last weekend. This technique is called intentional camera movement or ICM not to be confused with ICBM. I used a long shutter speed and moved the camera up while the shutter was open. I like the simplicity of this shot and was happy to see it sell for the first time.

Over the weekend I sold several abstract prints at Coeur d'Alene Art on the Green including this image. This is a photo of a steel door I found at Fort Columbia State Park in Oregon. This fort was built to protect the mouth of the Columbia River, but it was declared surplus after World War II and has been slowly disintegrating since then. I like the rust patterns and the bits of moss growing on this door. Sometimes you can find interesting images in unusual places.

Last year I visited Slovenia for the first time. It is a wonderful, compact country and my favorite place was Lake Bled. This alpine lake has an historic church on the small island in the middle of the lake which has been a destination of pilgrims for many centuries. One morning I got up early to shoot this picturesque sight at sunrise and I was able to capture the rising sun peeking behind from the clouds and the bell tower. It was such a beautiful sight!

Porto is famous for its port wine so we decided to join a winery tour. This is the wine cellar of Graham's 1890 Lodge which is on the top of the hill across the Douro River from Porto. Some port wine is aged in barrels, but some port wine is aged in these large casks. Because there is much more wine in the casks, the flavor of the oak is not as strong as the wine aged in barrels. After the tour we tasted some of the wine and bought a few bottles and then we had a wonderful lunch in the restaurant with a view looking out over the city. It was such a great experience!

Italy has so many wonderful churches, but Orvieto Cathedral is one of my favorites. This cathedral was constructed in the 14th century when Pope Urban IV was living in Orvieto. The Pope moved to Orvieto to escape conflict in Rome. I took this photo in the late evening so I could capture the illuminated cathedral with a deep blue twilight sky in the background. It must have been such an impressive sight in the middle ages when it was completed!

Several years ago we visited Savannah, GA and I fell in love with the historic district. This is Forsyth Fountain which is perhaps historic Savannah's most famous landmark. It was so beautiful in the early morning light. Such a charming city full of antebellum atmosphere.

In Porto we joined a tour of the Stock Exchange Palace or Palacio da Bolsa in Portuguese. This is the inner courtyard which is called Nations' Room because the national seals of many countries who trade with Porto can be found on the ceiling. While it is no longer used as a stock exchange, it is still used to host many important events in the city. It is such a beautiful building and one of the highlights of our stay in Porto.

Porto dates back to Roman times when it was founded as a port on the Douro River. The Douro Valley has many vineyards and most of the wine produced there is shipped from Porto including of course Port wine. One night on our stay there we had dinner across the river and afterwards I took this shot of the waterfront at sunset. It is easy to see why this historic district is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was just beautiful as the city lights came on and the sun set in the background!

New Zealand has some of the best hiking trails I have seen anywhere. This is a trail I took to the Oparara Arch on the northwest tip of the South Island. The forests in this region are very lush because of the high annual rainfall which is also a good environment for tree ferns. I was such a beautiful forest!

One of my favorite cities in Mexico is Guanajuato. This is a rooftop view of the city with the dome of the cathedral in the foreground. In the background you can see the colorful houses that line the walls of the canyon surrounding the city. The colors of Mexico are amazing and the colonial architecture in Guanajuato is fabulous.

When we visited Portugal one of the first things we noticed were all the beautiful tiles or in Portuguese "azulejos" decorating both the interior and exterior of the buildings there. This is main entry hall of Sao Bento Station in Porto which is the terminus for most suburban commuting trains in Portugal's second largest city, i.e. the equivalent of New York's Grand Central Station. This tilework depicts major scenes in Portugal's history including the Battle of Valdevez pictured above and were some of the most magnificent tiles we saw on our trip. We fell in love with these Portuguese tiles and purchased several as souvenirs before returning home.

I sold a metal print of this image recently. I just love this view of a Japanese garden through the round window of a tea house. The graphic design is very nice and the lines of the image draw your eye into the garden. Round windows are much more common in Chinese gardens than they are in Japan, but the paper shoji screens are very Japanese so this is a combination of both Chinese and Japanese styles. This small temple is an under-appreciated gem in Kyoto which has so many very famous and crowded temple gardens.

It is said that the early bird gets the worm, but I believe the early photographer gets the shot. When I travel to a new place, I always try to get up early to shoot the early morning light. This is a view of Obidos Town at dawn. I like this view looking down on the town from the city wall with the castle in the background. Illuminated buildings always look great against a beautiful dawn sky.

It is said that the early bird gets the worm, but I believe the early photographer gets the shot. When I travel to a new place, I always try to get up early to shoot the early morning light. This is a view of Obidos Town at dawn. I like this view looking down on the town from the city wall with the castle in the background. Illuminated buildings always look great against a beautiful dawn sky.

After Lisbon we spent 2 nights in Obidos, a very well preserved medieval walled town. This is a typical street in the historic district. Obidos was founded during the Roman period and was occupied by the Moors until 1148. Several Portuguese Queens were patrons of Obidos which is why it is called Town of the Queens in Portuguese (Vila das Rainhas). I just love the cobblestone streets and traditional houses in this beautiful little town!

It can be fun to shoot traffic trails and it is not as difficult as it might seem to be. Basically you just need a sturdy tripod to hold your camera steady because the shutter speeds can be quite long. I like to shoot with a 30 second shutter speed so I can capture longer traffic trails. This image was taken in central Lisbon near Rossio Station, the main terminus for trains arriving and departing from Lisbon. It is interesting that at this shutter speed, the camera records the headlights and taillights of the cars, but the cars themselves disappear which produces a rather surreal effect.

This is the Monument to the Discoveries which commemorates the Portuguese Age of Exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is located on the north bank of the Tejos River near its mouth into the Atlantic Ocean which is where all the explorers departed for worlds unknown. It is indeed an impressive monument to this most important time in Portuguese history.

This is Figueira Square in central Lisbon at dawn. The statue is King John I who is credited with preserving Portugal's independence from Spain in the 14th century. I like this early morning shot with the square illuminated and the deep blue sky in the background. Lisbon is such a photogenic city!

When visiting a new building I often look up at the ceiling. If I like what I see I take a photo. This is the ceiling of the National Pantheon in Lisbon. It was originally a church, but now it has been converted into a monument where important Portuguese personalities are buried. I like the symmetrical and almost abstract design looking straight up. It was a very impressive building!

I delivered a 20 X 30 print of my "Dancing Tree" image to a client yesterday. This image has been one of my most popular prints. Customers seem to love the abstract twisting trunk and also like the fact that it was photographed locally. When considering to purchase artwork, I think it helps for people to have a some kind of connection to the artwork. This local connection seems to work for this image. I think of this tree as a living sculpture. While it is located outside the Japanese Garden, I think the gardeners there must have pruned this tree in order for the trunk to have so many twists and turns.

When I find a nice viewpoint, I like to go back at different times of the day. This view is looking out over the rooftops of Alfama just before sunrise. Lisbon looks so beautiful looking down on its red tile rooftops and this was one of my favorite viewpoints so I went back in the early morning to photograph it at sunrise.

This is Rossio Square at dawn. I got up early to catch the early morning light and the square without any people. Rossio Square is perhaps the most important gathering place in central Lisbon and is situated in front of Rossio Station, the terminus for trains from the suburbs and all over Portugal. The statue on top of the column is King Pedro IV and the official name of this square is King Pedro IV Square. The Portuguese often use tiles to create mosaic designs in their squares and sidewalks. I love the design of this mosaic which almost looks like waves on the ocean.

Recently I sold 3 prints of this image of Fisherman's Bastion in Budapest. I have been surprised at the strong demand for Budapest images, but many people tell me that they have visited recently and thoroughly enjoyed their trip. Perhaps the Viking River Cruise ads are paying off. I like the leading lines of this image which draw your to the turret in the distance. Budapest is such a beautiful city!

I sold a 20 X 30 metal print of this image last weekend. This is a very famous place in Japan known in English as the "Wedding Rocks" or in Japanese as "Meoto Iwa". The 2 rocks symbolize a married couple. One of the characters in Japanese for marriage means to tie a knot so the rope symbolizes a marriage. This is also a symbolic gate for the shrine at Futamigaura. Most Japanese shrines have a torii gate several meters in front of the shrine, but this shrine is located directly next to the seashore so the rocks in the ocean are a symbolic gate. I just love the beautiful dawn sky reflected in the ocean in this image.

There is something calming about a bamboo forest which appeals to people. I sold a 20 X 30 metal print of this image to a client from the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts last weekend. Sometimes I have people come into my booth and ask specifically to see images of bamboo. This image is the Bamboo Temple Garden in Kamakura, Japan. I like the path leading into the bamboo forest. It really draws your eye into the image.

When we were in Lisbon, I found a great rooftop bar in Chiado with a wonderful view of the city. This is Sao Jorge Castle at dusk photographed from that rooftop bar. The fortifications on the top of the hill were built by the Moors in the 10th century. When the Christians liberated Lisbon during the 2nd crusade in the 12th century this castle helped to defend the area against Moorish attacks. In the 13th century when Lisbon became capital of the kingdom, this castle became the residence of Portuguese kings until the 16th century when a new castle was constructed on the banks of the Tejo River. I like this view looking down on the rooftops of the city with the castle illuminated on top of the hill.

When we were in Lisbon, I found a great rooftop bar in Chiado with a wonderful view of the city. This is Sao Jorge Castle at dusk photographed from that rooftop bar. The fortifications on the top of the hill were built by the Moors in the 10th century. When the Christians liberated Lisbon during the 2nd crusade in the 12th century this castle helped to defend the area against Moorish attacks. In the 13th century when Lisbon became capital of the kingdom, this castle became the residence of Portuguese kings until the 16th century when a new castle was constructed on the banks of the Tejo River. I like this view looking down on the rooftops of the city with the castle illuminated on top of the hill.
