Welcome!

I love to travel.  I work hard – and have loads of fun –  at taking beautiful photographs of the places I visit and I love to share these photographs with you!  But I do more than just take photographs.  I also desire to share what I  have learned and am still learning with you.  I love to share my insights and my skill with those who are learning about photography.  I figure that those who are comfortable with their skills will find what I have to share not all that interesting.  But if you are just learning, or like

This website is the blending of these two passions.  I love going to new places, and I love to take beautiful photographs.  And I like to do both at the same time!

I work hard – and have loads of fun –  at taking beautiful photographs of the places I visit and I love to share these photographs with you!  But I do more than just take photographs.  I also desire to share what I  have learned and am still learning with you.  I love to share my insights and my skill with those who are learning about photography.  I figure that those who are comfortable with their skills will find what I have to share not all that interesting.  But if you are just learning, or like myself, constantly working to improve our photography skills, then this is a home for you. 

I figure that we all on a journey to improve our skills, so why not journey together?  There is a lot to learn, and I am always learning, and I’d imagine that you are two.  So why not share with me and I can share with you?  

Are you still using your smartphone to take pictures?  Great! That’s a fantastic place to begin!  

Do you have a DSLR but not sure how to use it?  That’s an awesome place to begin! Do you have a DSLR, but not sure how to shoot in manual mode?  Or you are not sure how to do High Dynamic Range photography? . . . or landscape photography or travel photography? . . . not sure how to set your camera for proper exposure?. . .not sure . . .  well, you get the picture.  

We all have been there, or are getting there, or are hoping that with some help and guidance that we might get there.  And this is where I can help.

And if you are looking for some great places to take photographs, then I can help.  At least I can share my experiences and my insights about each location I visit.  Whether it is outside of the United States, or in the United States, let me take you on a journey of discovery and exploration.  My favorate travel tool is of course my camera!

Travel along with me as we explore various locations and explore our photography and learn to be better photographers and even better global citizens. Come and explore and learn!

Coal Mine Canyon Redux

One of my favorite places to visit as of late has been Coal Mine Canyon, off AZ 264 about 16 miles north of Tuba City. If you are going much further, you find yourself entering the Hopi Nation. This is easy to recognize as the number of hogans visible from the roadside drop to none. On this visit to Coal …

In the Spotlight: Shafer Road

In Canyonlands National Park Island in the Sky section, there is a narrow section which the road crosses.  It really is only wide enough to support the main road into this section, with steep cliffs on each side as you drive across this ‘natural bridge’ from one mesa to the next.   I was crossing this section near sunset, and …

In the Spotlight: Castle Butte

I was out taking photographs of the Little Painted Desert along Arizona 87 just north of I-40.  The light wasn’t the greatest, so I began to look for some scenes where the light would work better. As I drove down AZ87, I saw these buttes, the first is called Castle Butte, and the near-dusk light lit up the red rock …
