When I am traveling I always try to get up early and shoot the dawn light. This is an old image from a trip to Banff NP in the Canadian Rockies. Vermillion Lake is a small lake just outside the town of Banff. When the conditions are right, the reflections are just beautiful. On this morning I was lucky to have a crescent moon to include in my composition. I like the serenity of this image.

There are very few places where a waterfall flows directly into the ocean. This is McWay Falls on the California coast near Big Sur and this waterfall flows directly onto this lovely beach. There is a great view point which is close to the highway and the state has luckily banned any access onto the beach itself which is why it is in such pristine condition. It was such a beautiful sight to see such a awesome sight!

I like to shoot monochrome images. When a photo has only one color, your eye can focus on the lines and composition of the image. This is why many photographers like to shoot black and white. This image is new growth of a corn lily at Mt. Rainier NP. I love the green color of the new leaves and the lines are very interesting.

When we were in Glasgow, we visited the Glasgow Botanic Gardens which has several wonderful glasshouses built in the early 19th century. This is looking up at the domed roof of Kibble Palace which is the largest glasshouse there. There is a large planting of tree ferns from New Zealand and Australia which are in the center of Kibble Palace and the top of which you can see in this image. I like the concentric circles in this image with the ferns framing the composition.

This is Glasgow Cathedral, a wonderful Gothic church dating back to the 12th century. While it is called Glasgow Cathedral, that was its original status before the Anglican church split from Roman Catholicism. Currently it is a high kirk of the Church of Scotland, but Glasgow Cathedral sounds better and it is the largest and most historic church in Glasgow. The stained glass windows and ceiling were truly amazing!

When we visited Glasgow this year, I got up early to shoot the city at dawn. This is George Square which is the main square in downtown Glasgow. The large illuminated building is City Chambers and houses the municipal government. It was completed in 1888 when Glasgow was the second largest city in the United Kingdom and is an impressive example of Victorian architecture.

Spain has some wonderful modern architecture. This is the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia designed by Santiago Calatrava. In this image I used part of the architecture to create a frame. It was such a wonderful place to shoot!

During medieval times, land was scarce so people did not want to use this limited resource for cemeteries. The custom was to bury the dead for some period and then to dig up the bones which were stored in an ossuary. This freed up the land for other uses and still gave some dignity to those who passed away. This is an image of what is commonly known as the bone church. The monks not only piled up the bones of the dead, but also arranged them in macabre decorations. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Czech Republic and was truly a sight never to be forgotten!

When I was in Edinburgh I had some fun playing with long exposures. Long exposures at night can create traffic trails where the vehicles disappear and only the lines of their moving lights remain visible. The building in the background is The Balmoral Hotel which is perhaps the most famous hotel in Edinburgh. It is rumored that J. K. Rowling stayed here while she was writing part of the Harry Potter novels.

When I am traveling I like to go out early in the morning to see what I can find. When we were in Palermo I drove by this marina just as the sun was rising. It is always nice to catch a nice sunrise with an interesting foreground so I parked the car and made this image. I like the colorful sky and the masts of the boats reflected in the water.

When I was in Miami last week I decided to go out to South Beach. Since summer is the slow season, there weren't too many people. I found this colorful lifeguard station without any people. I like the blue and yellow color combination and the clouds in the background are also nice. Shortly after this there was a squall and it started raining cats & dogs. Luckily I was able to take cover in the restroom and avoid most of the rain.

Last week I made a brief trip to Miami. While the main purpose was not photography, I was able to get out and take some photos. One day I got up early and took this photo of the Perez Art Museum Miami. It is in a beautiful location on the bay with downtown high-rises in the background. I like to shoot interesting architecture and it was beautiful illuminated against the early dawn sky.

This is Nove Hrady Chateau in the Czech Republic. It was built in the 18th century when the local nobility were influenced by French styles and is often called the Czech Versailles. While I am not so fond of rococo style, this chateau is a beautiful example. I fondly remember having a wonderful Czech pastry with my friend at the coffee shop here.

Japanese Shinto shrines usually have a torii gate to mark the entrance into the shrine. But Fushimi Inari Shrine has this walkway of seemingly endless gates. In Japanese it is called "Ten Thousand Gates" not because there are 10,000 gates, but because ten thousand means very, very many. I like this view where it looks like the gates go on forever.

One could argue that Slovenia is Europe's best kept secret. Most Americans would be hard pressed to find it on a map, but I think it is one of the best countries I have visited. This is the main square in Ljubljana, Sovenia's capital city. It is not a large city, but it is picturesque and has quite a few historical sights. I made this image in the early morning which is why I was able to capture it without any people. I would really like to go back again one day.

This is Galleria Vitorrio Emanuel II in central Milan. The Galleria, one of the oldest enclosed shopping malls in the world, was completed in 1887 and connects Piazza del Duomo with Piazza della Scala. This beautiful art nouveau building became the prototype for many 19th century shopping arcades across Europe and throughout the world. The Galleria's nickname is "il salotto di Milano" which means Milan's drawing room because for many generations this has been the place to be and be seen. I like this early morning image without any people and with the beautiful dawn sky visible through the glass dome.

When I am out photographing, I like to find interesting details to shoot. Often focusing on a small detail can provide better insight than shooting a wide angle shot. This is the royal coat of arms in the private royal apartment of Edinburgh Castle. The unicorn is the symbol of Scotland and the lion is the universal symbol of royalty. This decoration was clearly designed to impress anyone who saw it and it definitely had that effect on me.

I finally started processing some images from my trip to Scotland and London. When we were in Edinbugh I went up to Carlton Hill at sunset. This is the view of the Stewart Monument with Edinbugh Castle in the background. It was a great place to see the lights come on in the city. I like the illuminated buildings against this twilight blue sky.

Ravenna was the capital of Italy in the 5th and 6th centuries when Italy was a province of the Eastern Roman Empire. This is the ceiling of the Ravenna Duomo which was completed in the mid-6th century when Justinian was the Eastern Roman Emperor. What may appear to be frescoes on the ceiling in this image are actually Byzantine mosaics. Mosaics were popular in the Eastern Christian churches and can be seen in all of the major Byzantine monuments in Ravenna. It is amazing that Ravenna's Byzantine churches have survived more than 1500 years in such wonderful condition.

This is Vernazza one of the five towns in Cinque Terre. There are hiking trails which connect all of the 5 towns so we hiked along the trail until we found a viewpoint. Vernazza is such a pretty little town with a cute little harbor. I like this viewpoint which looks directly down on the town.

When we told Mexicans that we were going to Guadalajara, everyone told us that we should see the Orozco murals and they were right. Orozco was a Mexican social realist muralist almost as famous as Diego Rivera. This is a mural of Miguel Hidalgo at the Guadalajara Governor's Palace. Even if you don't like this style of painting, you have to admit that it does get your attention. It was such an impressive sight!

On our 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 the river flowing through the valley. We were there at the end of May so the greens were particularly beautiful!

This is the ceiling of the Church of Santa Maria in Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, Portugal. This monastery was completed in 1601 and was financed by a tax on the spice trade of Portuguese merchants. This style of architecture is called Manueline after King Manuel I. It is truly an impressive building and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ceiling is over 25 meters above the floor and must have been one of the largest churches in the world when it was constructed.

Antigua was the colonial capital of Guatemala for over 200 years, but after most of the city was destroyed in an earthquake in 1773 the capital was moved to Guatemala City. The city is surrounded by volcanoes which is why there are so many earthquakes. I like this view of the colonial buildings with the volcano in the background.

Several years ago I joined some friends on a trip to Italy's Umbria region. Umbria which is northeast from Rome is know for its wine and we saw many vineyards there. This is a vineyard near the town of Todi. Most medieval Italian towns were built on the top of a hill so they could be easily defended and Todi is a good example. I like the town in the distance behind this vineyard. Italy is such a beautiful country!

This is Fisherman's Bastion in Budapest. At first glance one would think this is one of Europe's ancient monuments, but actually it was completed in the early 20th century. It is one of my favorite places because it looks like a fairy tale. I like the illuminated buildings against this beautiful twilight sky in this image.

When I am traveling I always try to get up early and shoot the dawn light. This is an old image from a trip to Banff NP in the Canadian Rockies. Vermillion Lake is a small lake just outside the town of Banff. When the conditions are right, the reflections are just beautiful. On this morning I was lucky to have a crescent moon to include in my composition. I like the serenity of this image.

This is Catedral de San Jose viewed from the balcony of Antigua's City Hall. Antigua is a beautiful colonial town and the cathedral is perhaps its most famous landmark. I would like to go back there again some day!

Croatia's Adriatic coast is so beautiful. This is looking down on Hvar town from Hvar Castle. We were lucky to have great weather when we visited several years ago. There are over 1,000 islands on Croatia's Dalmatian coast and Hvar is one of the nicest. Such a wonderful place for a summer getaway!

This is an old image shot with Fuji Velvia film many years ago, but I still like it. I think the evergreen trees reflected in this deep blue lake almost look like an abstract painting. This was taken at Emerald Lake in the Canadian Rockies. The deep blue color of the lake is caused by glacial till which is carried by streams down to the lake. These small particles of rock absorb all the light except for the blue color.

Most Mexican cities and towns have a central square where people meet for large events or just to spend some time with friends. In Mexico this central square is most often called "zocolo". This is the zocolo in Puebla, a charming colonial town near Mexico City. To take this image I found a nice restaurant on the roof of a building on the square and waited for the sun to go down. I enjoyed a drink with some appetizers and took lots of photos. I like the illuminated cathedral against the twilight sky in this image.

When I visited California in the spring several years ago, many wildflowers were blooming. In Santa Barbara I went to the botanical garden where they had planted several beds with typical wildflowers, one of which was this yellow lupine. It was the first time I had ever seen yellow lupine so I just had to take some photos. I like the out of focus background in this image which lets your eye focus on the in focus flower in the foreground.

Alhambra is the palace of the Nasrid dynasty, the last Moorish kingdom in Spain. It was built in the 14th century and is truly an amazing place. When we visited Granada we had dinner at a restaurant on top of a hill with this view of the palace. As the lights came on and the sky got darker I took some photos. I like the illuminated palace with the town in the foreground and the twilight sky in the background of this image. We later heard that former President Clinton also had dinner at this same spot.

There are very few places where a waterfall flows directly into the ocean. This is McWay Falls on the California coast near Big Sur and this waterfall flows directly onto this lovely beach. There is a great view point which is close to the highway and the state has luckily banned any access onto the beach itself which is why it is in such pristine condition. It was such a beautiful sight to see such a awesome sight!

Japan can be a land of contrasts. While the Japanese are careful to preserve their ancient traditions, they also have mastered modern technology. Whenever I travel on Japanese trains I am always impressed with how ultra-modern they are. This is a bullet train at Shinagawa station in downtown Tokyo. These trains can travel at up to 180 miles per hour and make inter-city travel very convenient. I set up my tripod at the end of the platform to take this shot, but after several minutes shooting the tripod police forced my to put it away. Luckily I got this shot before I was forced to pack up my tripod.

This is an image from my a trip to Quebec several years ago. The building on the left is Chateau Frontenac perhaps Quebec City's most iconic structure which dominates the city skyline. This hotel run by the Fairmont group was originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in various stages during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Dufferin Terrace, directly in front of the hotel offers expansive views of the old port and the St. Lawrence River below. It was such a beautiful sight in the early morning light!

Living in the Seattle area we are incredibly lucky to have several national parks just a short ride away. My favorite is Mr. Rainier NP. This is the skyline trail in mid-summer when the lupine were in full bloom. I hope I can get up to see it again this summer.

When I visited Slovenia several years ago, we spent one night in Maribor because a friend wanted to meet up with his business acquaintance. I had never heard of Maribor and was not expecting much, but it was actually a very nice town. Maibor is the second largest city in Slovenia and this is the historic Town Hall Square. Slovenia is such a wonderful little country with so many surprises!

Punchbowl Falls is one of my favorite waterfalls. Because the Columbia Gorge get such a large amount of rainfall the vegetation is very lush. I had to wade out into Eagle Creek to get this view of the falls, but it was well worth it.

When I visited Guatemala several years ago one of the volcanoes was erupting so we decided to hire a guide to take us out to see it. We were able to get quite close to the lava flow and it was so hot I thought my shoes might melt. It was raining and the raindrops would immediately evaporate when they hit the hot rocks. It was a surreal scene to view up close!

When I visited Portland recently, there were no clouds in the sky so I decided to shoot the skyline. I found a spot near OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) with a great view of downtown across the Willamette River. As the lights of the downtown buildings came on the reflections in the river were amazing. I always like to shoot cityscapes with some water in the foreground.

I like to shoot monochrome images. When a photo has only one color, your eye can focus on the lines and composition of the image. This is why many photographers like to shoot black and white. This image is new growth of a corn lily at Mt. Rainier NP. I love the green color of the new leaves and the lines are very interesting.

Often when I am out photographing, I like to just wander around to see if I can find something interesting to shoot. This is a scene I found while I was driving aimlessly in the Willamette Valley wine country. I am not sure exactly what this farm is growing. It looks like it may be a newly planted orchard, but I like the lines leading up to the barn and the horizon. I also like the puffy clouds in the sky of this image.

When I was in the Columbia Gorge recently I drove out to Columbia Hills State Park in Washington. It was a beautiful day and the balsmaroot was blooming. The bright yellow flowers looked beautiful against the deep blue sky.

This is looking up at the dome of Tokyo Station. Tokyo station was completed in 1914 and included many elements of European architecture which were popular in Japan at that time. This station is often called Tokyo's "front door" because it is located in the center of Tokyo's central business district. The building was renovated recently and they did a great job to bring this beautiful, old building back to its former glory.

When I went down to Oregon recently, I took a hike up to see Punchbowl Falls. The trail follows Eagle Creek and this is a view of the forest along the trail. It looked quintessentially Pacific Northwest with moss covering most of the trees. The Columbia Gorge gets a large amount of rainfall which results in this very mossy, green and lush forest.

Recently a friend told me that the mustard was blooming in the Willamette Valley of Oregon so I drove down to check it out. The Willamette Valley is know for its vineyards and some vineyard owners plant mustard as a cover crop and sometimes it just grows wild. Vineyards are always an interesting photo op because the lines and patterns are so interesting. This is a shot of Winderlea Vineyard & Winery which is owned and operated by our friends. It was such a beautiful sight to see the mustard blooming in their vineyard!

Savannah is one of my favorite cities because it looks so southern. Savannah was the capital of Georgia when the colony was founded by General James Oglethorpe and was also the first capital of Georgia when it became a state. The historic district has 22 squares which are part of the original Oglethorpe plan for the city. This is Orleans Square. I just love the Spanish moss hanging from the tree in this photo!

In the Pacific Northwest we are lucky to live so close to Canada. Vancouver is only about 2 hours by car from our house if the border crossing is not backed up. Vancouver is a great city with a beautiful waterfront. This is the skyline shot from Stanley Park at twilight. The reflections on the harbor were so beautiful that night!

I like to shoot city skylines because they are a symbol of the location. I especially like to shoot skylines with some water in the foreground. This is San Diego's skyline shot from Coronado Island which is conveniently across the harbor from downtown. I waited until about 30 minutes after sunset to catch the illuminated buildings against this beautiful twilight sky.
