Siena Staircase

Where do you stay when you visit a romantic Tuscan medieval town?  In a nunnery, of course!  In the case of Siena, the sisters at Alma Domus have the best deal in town.  It’s cheap, clean, and has a great view of the town.  This is the staircase to Alma Domus (on the left) with […]

Print Sale – Vernazza Harbor

Springtime Swamp Grass

This shot was taken this afternoon at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum near Chanhassen, MN.  I had the kids out for a little getaway while their mother was playing tennis.  Up until now, I had only scouted the three mile road for shots – this was my first time heading down the trail.  It probably was […]

Surf at the Keanae Peninsula

This was taken on the Keanae Peninsula on the way out to Hana.  We had been weaving our way up the coast for a couple of hours when we hit this fantastic spot.  I loved it so much, I went back the next morning to shoot it at dawn.  We ended up spending an hour […]

Orvieto Hillside

The hill town of Orvieto is between Rome and Tuscany in central Italy.  These towns are built on plateaus – presumably for security in ancient times.  Orvieto was frequently used as a refuge by the Pope when the going got rough.  This shot is of some medieval ruins near the funicular station. Vital Stats: Canon […]

Print Sale – The Edge of Assisi

This shot is from the village of Assisi – home of St. Francis. I’m trying something new today.  I’m offering one of my best prints for sale.  This is one that is hanging in my house – and I think it’ll look great in yours. If interested.. click here to open the sale window, then […]

Manarola Harbor

Another post from the Cinque Terre area – this time it’s town #2, Manarola.  This shot was actually taken from the town cemetary perched high above the town and the sea below.  I gotta say – it would be quite a place to spend eternity!  We briefly stopped here for a little pizza and wine […]

Lake of the Dead

Sorry Charlie – I can’t remember exactly what lake this is.  I do know that it’s very near Flying Lake just off the Gunflint Trail.  I seriously think a swamp wraith lives in there someplace.  Heather and I were on our way in for 5 days of canoeing with our friends the Tufvanders when we […]

Under the Bridge One Time

This bridge is just south of Mankato on the way to Rapidan.  It’s now a very nice bike trail that we took advantage of to get in one last ride before the winter hit.  It was a beautiful late-October day and we got in about 15 miles of riding with the entire family.  This bridge […]

View from the Taj

Sometimes you just have to shoot out of your hotel window. This is the first thing I saw on my first morning in India.  I arrived way after midnight and it took literally hours to get my bags.  By the time I got to the hotel, it was somewhere around 3:30 AM.  Fortunately I didn’t […]
