Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! This post doesn't really have anything to do with Father's Day, BUT, it's worth mentioning right up front. 🙂 Now to the picture. I've got photos from my last trip to Asia that I'm excited to share (starting next week),...

Operation Manitou – Tybee Island Edition

Operation Manitou – Tybee Island Edition

I'm not sure when, exactly, we can declare something a tradition, but after the sixth year of doing something, I feel like we're there. Well this year we decided to give our tradition a name - Operation Manitou. Since 2012 my family has made it a point to take a week...

Spring on the Middle Prong

Spring on the Middle Prong

I wanted to end my series on Spring here in East Tennessee with this stream scene, and a story of high-adventure on Tremont Road. For those uneducated on the Great Smoky Mountains, Tremont Road is photographers playground that sits just off the main road that leads...

Spring Sunrise

Alright, so I spoke last week about how going to the same spot over and over can get boring. This week, however, I wanted to talk a little bit more about why I do it anyway, by illustrating how a scene changes throughout the year. With that in mind, I'll point a...

Morning Light in the Smokies

The Tiger’s Nest Monastery

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...

Milky Way over Bhutan

Milky Way over Bhutan

2016 was a really cool year for Holly and I. I started the year photographing the Milky Way over Easter Island, and I ended it photographing the Milky Way over Bhutan (with lots of adventures in-between). It doesn't get much better than that! In both cases, I was...

The Details of Bhutan – A Photo Essay

The Details of Bhutan – A Photo Essay

When visiting somewhere, especially a new place, it's easy to get caught up in the 'big scenes', and forget about the small details that can really make a location unique. Bhutan is full of interesting and ornate details, and while no where near exhaustive, I wanted...

Punakha Dzong in Punakha, Bhutan

Punakha Dzong in Punakha, Bhutan

Chalk it up to poor planning... or me just not looking at my calendar... in any case, when I started my series on Bhutan last week I wasn't thinking about this week being Easter! So, this is admittedly not an Easter photo / post! BUT, happy Easter anyway! 🙂 When I...
