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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am a big fan of bamboo so I decided to visit the Bamboo Temple or Hokokuji when I went to Kamakura several years ago. Kamakura was the capital of Japan in the 12th century and has some lovely temples and shrines. This ancient bamboo forest is over 40 feet tall and was so peaceful. It was such a beautiful place.

This is the Four Rivers Fountain at Piazza Navona in central Rome. The sculptures were designed by Bernini, one of the most famous Italian baroque architects. It depicts four major rivers in four different continents, i.e. the Nile in Africa, the Danube in Europe, the Ganges in Asia and the Rio de la Plata in the Americas. I shot it in the early morning so I could capture it without any people in the beautiful dawn light. During the day this square is packed full of people.

This is Notre Dame Basilica, the largest Catholic church in Montreal. The exterior of this church was designed by an English architect and is rather nondescript, but the interior designed by French Canadians is truly amazing.I am not very religious, but I do appreciate religious architecture. We took a tour of old Montreal and a stop inside was part of the tour. I was so impressed that I went back the next day early in the morning so I could shoot it without any people.

Guanajuato is one of my favorite cities in Mexico. This is Plaza de La Paz which is the main square of Guanajuato. The church is Our Lady of Guanajuato Basilica, which is the largest and most important church in the city. I just love these classical colonial buildings illuminated against a cobalt blue sky. What a beautiful city!

One of my favorite places in Italy is the Amalfi coast. When I visited several years ago, I drove on the narrow road which hugs the top of the cliff looking out over the Mediterranean Sea north of Positano. This is the view from one of the look outs along this road. I just love this rugged coastline which has been spared development because of the sheer cliffs in the area.

This is the main square of Piran, a lovely town on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia. Piran was part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries and it still has a very Italian feeling. The bell tower in the distance is a smaller version of the bell tower in Venice. The building on the left is city hall which was built when Piran was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire so it has more of a central European style. I like the leading lines of this image which draw your eye towards the bell tower.

This is another flower I found blooming when we visited Waimea Valley Botanical Garden. The common name of this flower is spider lily and I can see the resemblance to a spider. But when viewed up close, I think it almost looks like an abstract modern painting. Mother Nature is such a great artist!

When I am out photographing, I am always on the lookout for abstract compositions. When we were in Honolulu, I went down to the Ala Moana Marina and the reflections in the water caught my eye. There are some tall hotels near the marina and their distorted reflections were just fascinating. I decided to keep part of the boat in the upper right corner as a contrast to the distorted refelctions.

Recently I have not been shooting many animals, but I still love to photograph them when the opportunity presents itself. When we were in Honolulu I went to Waimea Valley primarily to shoot botanical subjects, but this little lizard, a green anole, conveniently appeared on a leaf just before we were going to depart. I think he almost looks like a little dinosaur and he is no doubt a distant relative. I just love his green coloration against the green leaf in the background. One can never underestimate the power of serendipity in photography. You just have to make sure you take advantage of any opportunities that come your way.

When I am traveling I always try to find an elevated position with a good view. This is Hvar town on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. I found an old fort which had a great view of the town and went up to shoot the sunset. This image was taken just after the sun went down and the city lights came on. The Dalmatian coast of Croatia has over 1,000 islands. Hvar is one of the larger islands and you can see some of the smaller ones in the distance. I like this beautiful scene with the sunset sky in the background.

When we were in Honolulu last month, we drove up to the north shore of Oahu and visited the botanical garden at Waimea Valley. I love to photograph in botanical gardens because they take such good care of the plants and often have unusual specimens. This flower is called Amherstia or Pride of Burma because it comes from Burma. I think flowers look almost magical when photographed up close. This one looks like a mythical creature to me.

When we were in Honolulu recently I went down to Waikiki Beach to shoot the early morning light. It was very calm and peaceful at such an early hour. I like this view of the beach with Diamond Head in the background and the illuminated buildings against the deep blue dawn sky.

When I am traveling I like to find an elevated place to take photos. This is a view of San Gimignano taken from the tower of the old city hall. San Gimignano is one of the best preserved medieval hill towns in Italy. Situated on the Via Francigena the main route from northern Europe to Rome, San Gimignano became very prosperous catering to the pilgrims and selling saffron, an important crop then. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thus should be preserved for future generations. I like this bird's eye view of the town.

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".

The highlight of our trip to Hawaii was a boat trip on the Big Island to see "The Fire Hose". Kilauea Volcano has been continuously erupting for several years, but it is rare for the lava to flow directly into the Pacific. Late last year a cliff collapsed and the lava tube started flowing directly into the ocean. The locals call this "the fire hose" because the large column of lava resembles a fire hose. It was difficult to photograph because it was so steamy, but occasionally there would be a break in the steam and the fire hose became visible. When the hot lava hits the cold ocean water it creates mini explosions of the lava particles hardened by the water as well as lots and lots of steam. It was such a fantastic experience to see Mother Nature at work!

When we were on the Big Island we took a hike in Volcanoes NP. This is the Halemaumau Trail which goes through the Halemaumau Crater. At the top of the crater you hike through this native forest which is mostly ohia trees. It was such a beautiful forest and looked almost mysterious.

We spent one night at Volcanoes NP when we visited the Big Island and early in the AM I went down to see the lava lake in Halemaumau Crater. It was quite a sight to see the lava bubbling up above the surface of the crater.

When we visited Volcanoes NP on the Big Island, we took a hike through the native forest. I was really impressed by the tree ferns which often grow to be 30 feet high. This is a closeup of a tree fern fiddlehead. I think it almost looks like a prehistoric monster.

On our recent trip to Hawaii, we spent several nights in Kona. Kona is on the west coast of the Big Island so it is a great place to shoot the sunset. One night I went down to the Place of Refuge which is a national historic park and the site of an ancient Hawaiian temple. This is the sunset I shot there. I think the sun setting between the palm trees looks very Hawaiian!

When we visited the Big Island recently, we drove from Kona to Volcanoes NP and along the way we stopped at South Point which is the southern most point in Hawaii and in all of the 50 US states. The ocean currents are very strong here and the waves were very high. Because the winds are so strong there are some wind turbines which you can see in the distance. The steep cliffs were so impressive and the water was such a beautiful shade of blue!

When we visited Croatia several years ago we spent several nights in the capital, Zagreb. While Zagreb is not at the top of most people's travel plans we thoroughly enjoyed our stay their. This is St. Mark's Square which is in the center of the old town. The building in the background is Croatia's Parliament Building. If anyone is contemplating a trip to Croatia, I highly recommend spending several nights in this delightful mid-sized city.

When we visited Mexico City several years ago, we drove out to the Teotihuacan Archaeological Site. These ruins were the site of the largest city in pre-Aztec Mesoamerica. Scholars believe that the pyramids were constructed circa AD250 and that the city's population was at least 125,000. This is called the Pyramid of the Moon, but archaeologists do not know what gods were worshiped here because no written records of this civilization have been discovered. It was a very impressive structure and one can only wonder what it must have looked like in its heyday.

This image is looking up at the ceiling of Palacio de Bella Artes or in English the Palace of Fine Arts which is Mexico City's opera house. It was completed in 1934 and it was the most impressive building we saw there. The interior is art deco and 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".

Yesterday a local client ordered a 24 X 36 metal print of my Sagan Bamboo Forest image. I am a big fan of bamboo. I feel peaceful and calm whenever I am surrounded by bamboo and the bamboo forest in Sagano in Eastern Kyoto is one of my favorite places to photograph it. I like the leading lines of this image which draw your eye to the seemingly endless bamboo. What a beautiful place!

I am a big fan of spiral staircases and often the best view is looking up or down. This is a spiral staircase I found at a hotel in Tuscany. It almost looks like a nautilus shell.
