This is the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian which is located on Piaazza del Duomo and is Milan's most famous landmark. Construction on the cathedral was started in the 14th century, but it was not completed until more than 500 years later in the 19th century. The Milanese set out to build an imposing structure at the heart of their city and it is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. Milan's Duomo is the largest cathedral in Italy and the 5th largest in the world. (St. Peter's in Rome is larger, but it is a basilica, not a cathedral.) I took this image before dawn so I could capture the square without any people. In this image, I like the designs in the piazza which draw your eye to the cathedral and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

This is another image purchased by a client last weekend. This is perhaps the most iconic view of the Canadian Rockies and was even on the back of one of the Canadian bank notes. I love the early morning light shining on the peaks in the background and reflected in the lake. The Canadian Rockies are just so spectacular!

I am a big fan of aspen trees. This is an aspen grove I found near Crested Butte, CO. I like the graphic composition focusing on the trunks with just a little autumn color.

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!

Before I visit a new location I do some research to find out what I want to shoot, but I also like to wander around and see what I can find by exploring. This is an image I found while I was wondering around central Vienna. I like the lines of the road the draw your eye into the image and the illuminated buildings look nice against the beautiful dawn sky.

When we visited New Zealand several years ago we drove up to Cape Reinga which is the farthest north you can drive on the North Island of New Zealand. The parking lot was crowded and there were loads of people at the lighthouse so we decided to walk down to Te Warahi Beach. It was only about a 30 minute walk, but we had the beach completely to ourselves. And what a beautiful beach it was, not even one foot print. You just can't top New Zealand's gorgeous landscapes and with so few people everything is just pristine.

When I am traveling I like to get up early and shoot famous landmarks. I like to shoot illuminated monuments with the dawn light and without any crowds. This is Palicio National in Mexico City. It was originally the main government building during colonial times and before that the site of the palace for Aztec rulers. During the day this square would be very, very crowded, but early in the AM there was no one out and about.

One of the best ways to show motion in a still photograph is motion blur. The above photo is a commuter train at Tokyo Station which had just started to leave. I always use a sturdy tripod for these shots with a rather long shutter speed. In this shot my shutter speed was 1/5 of a second. If I did not use a tripod the whole shot would be blurry, but using a tripod only the moving train is blurred. I like the contrast of the sharp station versus the blurry moving train. Shortly after I took this shot, one of the employees of the station rushed up to tell me that I was not allowed to use a tripod in the station. That can be one of the most frustrating things when I am shooting in Japan.

It is a bit gray here in the Pacific Northwest so here is an image which could brighten up your day. Springtime is one of my favorite times to photograph because the greens & are so green and the flowers are blooming. This is a scene I found wondering around the countryside of the Czech Republic. I like the color combination of yellow, green and blue and the road leads your eye to the single tree on the horizon. It was a beautiful time to be out and about!

When I travel to a new location I like to find a high vantage point where I can see the area. I was in San Miguel de Allende several years ago and our group found a restaurant with this great view of the city. We had a nice dinner and when the light was just right I was able to make this image. I just love the old colonial buildings in San Miguel!

This is the main square in Piran, Slovenia. Piran is a beautiful town on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia and was part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries so it feels very Italian. Recently there are not so many people who speak Italian any more because many of them moved to Italy after WWII when this area became part of the former Yugoslavia. The bell tower in the background is a replica of the famous bell tower in Venice. I like the lines of the square in this image with the beautiful sunrise sky in the background.

Kamakura has many Buddhist temples, many of which are not very famous. This is a Buddha I found at Tokeiji Temple which I found while I was wondering around. I like this calm peaceful face in such a natural setting.

Kamakura has many Buddhist temples, many of which are not very famous. This is a Buddha I found at Tokeiji Temple which I found while I was wondering around. I like this calm peaceful face in such a natural setting.

This is the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian which is located on Piaazza del Duomo and is Milan's most famous landmark. Construction on the cathedral was started in the 14th century, but it was not completed until more than 500 years later in the 19th century. The Milanese set out to build an imposing structure at the heart of their city and it is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. Milan's Duomo is the largest cathedral in Italy and the 5th largest in the world. (St. Peter's in Rome is larger, but it is a basilica, not a cathedral.) I took this image before dawn so I could capture the square without any people. In this image, I like the designs in the piazza which draw your eye to the cathedral and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

I am a big fan of aspen trees. This is an aspen grove I found near Crested Butte, CO. I like the graphic composition focusing on the trunks with just a little autumn color.

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.

Often a high elevation provides a great perspective. This image was shot from a high bridge over the freeway. I like this view which includes downtown, the freeways and the football stadium. I used a long shutter speed to create the traffic trails on the freeway.

Whenever I visit Mexico I am amazed at the Mexicans' sense of color. This is an alleyway that leads up to homes built on the slope of a hill in Guanajuato. I think perhaps the climate affects what colors are popular in different places. This is so different from what I am used to seeing in the Pacific Northwest!

This is an old image of Cape Alava on the Olympic Peninsula in WA state. This part of the coastline in very remote as there is no road access. I hiked out from Lake Ozette which takes about 2 hours. It was a beautiful sunset, but when I tried to return after sunset, I could not find the trailhead. So I had to spend a long cold night out on the beach. If I ever do this again I will be more prepared with a flashlight so I can hike back in the dark.

This is an old image taken when we lived in Massachusetts. Cranberries are grown in bogs and the most convenient way to harvest the berries is to flood the fields with water. The berries float to the top and then are vacuumed up into trucks that carry them away. This worker is raking the berries closer to the machine that vacuums them into the truck. I like the bright red berries against the deep blue water and the simple composition of this image.

This is the Palantine Chapel in Palermo. It was the royal chapel of the Norman kings of Sicily built in the 12th century. The Normans defeated the Arabs who ruled Sicily for over 200 years until 1061 and their royal palace is in Palermo. Since Sicily is was a crossroads of mariners in the medieval Mediterranean Sea, its culture is a mixture of Roman, Byzantine and Arab which is know as the Arab Norman style. The mosaic mural are truly amazing and were the highlight of our trip to Palermo.

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 we were in Palermo we joined a tour of the opera house, Teatro Massimo. Since Palermo is the largest city in Sicily and was its capital in the past, it has the most impressive opera house on the island. This is a view looking directly up at the ceiling. They just do not make buildings like this anymore!

Sicily was ruled by the Arabs in the middle ages until the Norman King Roger invaded and established a Christian kingdom in the 12th century. This is Monreale Cathedral near Palermo which was completed in the late12th century during the reign of Roger's grandson, King William II. Sicily had many cultural influences, most notably nearby Italy, but also the Arabs and the Byzantines. This mosaic mural has a strong Byzantine influence and is similar to other mosaic murals in Palermo and Cefalu. It was such a beautiful sight to see and very well preserved for being ancient.

Most Italian towns have a central square where many important events are held. This is Piazza Pretoria which is the central square of Palermo, the largest city in Sicily. The building behind the fountain is City Hall. I got up early so I could shoot it without any people and with the beautiful dawn light. The fountain in the center of the square was designed by Francesco Camilliani and was completed in 1554.

When we were in Naples we took a tour of the opera house. Naples was the birthplace of opera and Teatro di San Carlo is the oldest continuously active public opera house in the world. It was originally commissioned by King Charles and was completed in 1737. As you can see the royal box is very impressive and such a beautiful building!

It was originally commissioned by King Charles and was completed in 1737. As you can see the royal box is very impressive and such a beautiful building!

Before Italy became a unified country, Naples was the capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies which included the island of Sicily and all of southern Italy. This is the main square in the center of Naples which was used for major ceremonies of this kingdom. Since the lion is the king of beasts it was used as a symbol of the king in this square. The building in the background is the Church of San Francesco di Paola. I like this view with the lion statue in the foreground and the square in the background.

Halloween is just around the corner which means that in Mexico they are getting ready to celebrate Day of the Dead. This is an image I shot several years ago in San Miguel de Allende during Day of the Dead. The Mexican decorate their cities with these colorful banners which makes for a very festive atmosphere. The church tower in the background is Parroquia De San Miguel Archangel Church which is the largest church in San Miguel de Allende.

When we visited Naples, Italy this year, I saw some photos of this unusual metro station so I decided to check it out. 10 years ago the city government decided to redesign 14 metro stations each with a different theme. This is the Toledo Metro Station. As you can see the walls of this station are covered in blue & purple tiles with avant garde design. It was truly an amazing sight to see!

Recently this image was used on the cover of a travel brochure. Whenever I travel to Mexico I just love the vibrant colors there. I think this image captures the vibrant colors as well as the vitality of the people there. I also like the contrast of the sharp background vs. the motion blur of the dancers. I mounted my camera on a sturdy tripod and used a slow shutter speed to get this effect.

This is an interior shot of La Mezquita in Cordoba, Spain. La Mezquita was originally the main mosque in the Moorish kingdom of Cordoba. When it was reconquered by the Christians they converted the mosque to a cathedral, but luckily they decided to keep much of the original structure and its decorations. This was a prayer alcove with its original Islamic decorations. Even thought the Spaniards persecuted Muslims and other non-Christians, it is wonderful that they preserved this wonderful example of Islamic architecture!

Not many Americans know that Hawaii was a monarchy before it became a US territory. When we were in Honolulu several years ago we visited Iolani Palace. This is the Throne Room used by the Hawaiian king. The royal family was very close to England so the style is very European. The palace was completed in 1882, but Hawaii was annexed by the US in 1898 so the palace was only used for a very short period.

On our last day in the Amalfi Coast, we visited Ravello, an historic town perched up in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean. This is the view from Villa Rufolo, a beautiful old palazzo which is now open to the public. It was a bit overcast the day we visited, but it was still such a beautiful sight to see the coast from this wonderful garden!

When we visited Italy in May, we stayed 2 nights at the Hotel San Pietro in Positano. It was a fantastic hotel with a fabulous restaurant and also this very attractive sun deck. The hotel is at the top of a cliff so you have to take an elevator down to the sun deck which is next to the Adriatic. It was such a beautiful spot!

This is an older images which is still popular. I used a slow shutter speed to create these swirls of color. The koi thought I was going to give them some food so they were jockeying for a good position. Many people are amazed that this is a photograph and I like the painterly feel of this image.

New Zealand is one of my favorite countries. This is Lake Pukaki on the South Island. It was amazing to see waves on this lake that looked like the ocean. The strong winds coming down the valley create these very high waves. The color of the water is a result of the glacial till from the nearby glaciers which make it such a beautiful color of turquoise. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

One of the things I like best about Japanese aesthetics is its simplicity. This can often be seen in traditional Japanese gardens. This is a photo from the Zen Buddhist Nazenji Temple. This style of Japanese garden is called "karesansui" in Japanese which literally means a dry landscape garden. Japanese gardens always have some water features as part of the garden design, but in "karesansui" gardens there is no water. So as in the image above gravel or sand is used to represent water. The raked lines in the the gravel represent waves in the ocean and the rock represents an island. This abstract representation becomes a very simple design which captures the essence of the landscape. I could spend hours looking at this scene and never grow tired of it.

Sometimes a different perspective can make an image look abstract. Most people do not look directly up, but it can be very interesting. In this image I love the contrast of the yellow aspen leaves against a deep blue sky. Colorado is so beautiful in the autumn!

It is beginning to feel like autumn in the Pacific Northwest. This is an image I shot several years ago in the Cascade Mts. The huckleberry bushes turn a beautiful shade of red in the autumn and make a great contrast with the green trees. I zoomed in on the mountainside for this image which makes it slightly abstract. Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year!

This is another image I sold at the Mill Valley Art Festival. This is the main doorway of the inn we stayed at when we visited Loreto in Baja California many years ago. Most people are surprised when they hear that this is Mexico, but much of the colonial architecture south of the border looks very European. I just love the colors in this image.

This is another image I sold last weekend. Lake Chelan is a very deep, long and narrow lake in central Washignton. This image was taken from Stehekin at the northern end of the lake. Stehekin is very remote because the only access is via a very long ferry ride from the town of Chelan or hiking over the cascade mountains. It was so peaceful looking down the lake at dawn this morning many years ago.

This is another print I sold last weekend. This is a hand held multiple exposure. The camera moved slightly between the different shots which gives this image its impressionistic feeling. I like these abstract shots because they become a study of color and form.

This is another image purchased by a client last weekend. This is perhaps the most iconic view of the Canadian Rockies and was even on the back of one of the Canadian bank notes. I love the early morning light shining on the peaks in the background and reflected in the lake. The Canadian Rockies are just so spectacular!

Last weekend I displayed my photography at the Mill Valley Art Festival in northern California. Towards the end of the festival one of my clients purchased 27 prints. He runs a chain of psychiatric clinics in the bay area and needed some artwork for his offices. This image of Narada Falls at Mt. Rainier NP is one of the images he purchased. It was nice to have such a large sale which included some of my older images such as this one.

Recently a client ordered a 40 X 60 metal print of my Bamboo Temple Garden image. I can't wait to see it in this large format. There is something calming and peaceful about bamboo images. Many people seem to like them.

When we were on the Isle of Capri, we hiked up to Villa Jovis which is the sight of Emperor Tiberius' imperial villa. Looking at this view it is easy to understand why he choose this spot for his villa. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

On our trip to Italy in May, we spent 2 nights on the Isle of Capri. Most tourists only come to Capri on day trips so it was nice to experience Capri in the early morning without any tourists. This is the view from the top of the funicular looking down on Marina Grande. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

When we were in Rome in May I visited the Trevi Fountain for the first time. I was very impressed with this lovely baroque fountain and decided to go back in the early AM to shoot it with the dawn sky in the background. One of the main reasons Rome was able to prosper in ancient times is because the city was supplied with water by an aqueduct. After Roman Empire fell this aqueduct fell into disrepair. During the renaissance this aqueduct was resurrected and the Trevi Fountain was built to remind Romans of the importance of water. I like the brick pavement in the foreground of this image and the beautiful dawn sky in the background. Shooting at this early hour also ensures that there will be no people in the image.
