Temple of the Sun and the Milky Way

This week's picture of the week is a bit poetic (or at least I think it is), but you'll have to allow me to explain. Every year, the core of the Milky Way and the Dark Horse Nebula disappear from our skies here in the Northern Hemisphere in late October / November...

One of the Craziest Landscapes I’ve Ever Seen

I'm going to go ahead and confess up front that I don't think I did this landscape justice.  I'm also going to confess that I really struggle with compositions in the desert some time.  Here in the east, it's fairly easy.  There's always some interesting flower,...

Sunset Point in Capital Reef National Park

One of the things I love to do when I travel is visit new (to me) National Parks, and I have to say, I was REALLY surprised with Capital Reef National Park.  After my time in Las Vegas and Valley of Fire State Park, I headed up to Utah to do some more exploring.  My...

Fire in the Valley

To the desert! I don't know why, but there is something about visiting the desert that I just love.  I suppose it could be because I didn't really get to spend much time in a desert until later in life, so to me it still feels a bit exotic, but whatever it is, I...

My 5 Favorite Photos of the Decade, 2010 – 2019

For those of you have followed along with this blog for a while, you'll certainly know that part of my year-end tradition is looking back at the photos I've taken for the year, and choosing my 5 favorites.  I started this tradition back in 2015 (if you want to know...

The Crazy Streets of Bangkok

Alright, so the last two installments (here and here) of Picture of the Week have looked at a couple different aspects of Thailand, and to me, those images are quite peaceful.  It is worth pointing out, however, that this is not a fair representation of Bangkok. ...

Inside the Prime Minister’s House

When I travel, I often like to visit history and art museums.  They're generally easy to find, they're unscripted (generally), so you can stay for as little or as much time as you'd like, and they're always educational; you can learn a lot about what people value by...

The Ornamental Architecture of Thailand

Alright, new year, and a new series... and a new photo essay! In 2019 I got to visit Thailand for the first time.  Unfortunately I didn't really get to venture out of Bangkok, but fortunately there are lots of really cool things to see in the city.  When you're in...

My 5 Favorite Photos from 2019

It's my favorite post of the year!  I know I say that every year, but it truly is.  I love the process of picking my favorites and reviewing my images from the past year. As I write this, I'm dealing with a wonderful stomach bug.  I've managed to get a stomach bug on...

Driving off into the Fog

Well Merry Christmas everyone!  I know I'm a bit late with that, so let me go ahead and say Happy New Year!  I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season so far. I wanted to end my fall colors series - and the decade! - with this foggy road image.  I love road...
