The Big Kahuna

Today’s image was inspired by Jon Cornforth during our recent trip to the Big Island of Hawai’i.  We were at Place of Refuge for a sunset shoot, but the vog was so bad that we never even pulled out our cameras.  On our way out, I wanted to snap a picture of the Place of […]

Needs Curb Appeal

This is the Walsh House in Animas Forks, CO.  The Walsh house is the signature landmark in this well-preserved late-19th century ghost town just outside of Silverton, CO.  It’s on the scenic route that takes a 4WD tourist over Cinnamon and Engineer Pass, but it can be reached by a cautious passenger car driver that […]

Anderson’s Dock

Here’s another shot of the famous Anderson’s Dock boathouse in Ephraim, WI.  The city allows anybody to come and add their name to the building – as long as they don’t do anything offensive.  As I was shooting this building, an entire family with a stepladder was immortalizing themselves on the backside of the building. […]

Canal Point Lighthouse

This is the Canal Point Lighthouse in Sturgeon Bay, WI.  It is located at the end of a long pier that creates a breakwater for the canal that bisects Door County.  This canal allows boats to travel from Lake Michigan to Green Bay without having to travel all the way around the peninsula.  Even though […]

Keeping Cinque Terre Safe

As you walk down the final parts of the Via del Amore’ in Cinque Terre into Monterosso, if you look on the left at the base of the castle you see a cool bit of history left over from World War II.  During WWII, the Germans built the low rounded bunker to defend the coastline […]

Piccolomini Library

Two days in a row of shots from Siena!  When I posted yesterday’s shot, I found this gem.  I thought I’d share given how popular other architectural shots I’ve posted have been. This is the Piccolomini Library in Siena.  It’s connected to the jaw-dropping Duomo, and it’s stunning to see.  Personally, this had ten times […]

Palazzo Communale

Siena is one of the real gems of Italy.  It’s got the most eye-popping cathedral in Italy bar none.  It’s got a great medieval feel.  And, it’s got the perfect piazza.  That’s the town square – not a dish with crust, sauce and cheese – though I’m sure you can get a good one of […]

Royales St. Hubert

Today’s shot is from Brussels, Belgium.  I took it on a trip back in fall of 2003 as part of a two week jaunt through the ‘low countries’.  This was the first day of the trip – and I had the beginnings of a raging head cold starting to hit.  This is Royales St. Hubert […]

Reflections of Rockport

Here’s the old harbor at Rockport, MA captured right at sunset.  When it comes to landscape photography – only two times a day matter.  Those two times are dawn and dusk – because that’s the time when the light is the most appealing.  About a minute after this shot was taken, the sun went behind […]

Lal Bagh Tower

This shot is of Lal Bagh Tower – situated in Lal Bagh Gardens in Bangalore, India.  It’s sitting on the Peninsular Gneissic Rock hill in the gardens – which is supposed to be one of the oldest rocks on the planet clocking in at somewhere around 3000 million years old.  Give or take a few, […]
