Morning Light in the Smokies

I have a confession to make. Sometimes I get bored with shooting in the Smokies. It's terrible, I know. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is home for me. I shoot there all the time, but if you've hung around Picture of the Week... like at all... you've probably...

The Tiger’s Nest Monastery

Wow. The first word out of my mouth when I looked at the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan, and one of the last things we did while in the country. Some people come to Bhutan just to see this one thing, which is certainly a shame, because there is so much more to the...

Tai O Fishing Village

If last week's Quarry Bay Apartments, and high-density housing are on one end of Hong Kong's spectrum, then the Tai O fishing village is on the other. While still cramped living, Tai O's famous buildings and homes built on stilts feel a lifetime away from the busy...
