Occasional Thoughts on Fine Art Photography and Travel
A part of my photograph of the week, this week I am featuring a recent photograph from Maui. On my first morning on Maui, I ventured out and was able to capture this magical sunrise along a rocky coastline with beaches on both ends. But it is the color of the light and black slick and shiny rocks which are the stars of this photograph!
A part of my Tiny Travel Guides, this edition is on the Rim Road (FR300) that follows for 45 miles along the edge of the Mogollon Rim in central Arizona. The Mogollon Rim is the edge of the Colorado Plateau and reaches upwards of several thousand feet above the valley floors below. It is a forested region with the country’s largest stand of ponderosa pine. It is definitely a location for photography, but the conditions need to be right to get some great shots. You can make the 45 mile trip along a semi maintained gravel road in a passenger vehicle, but it will be tricky in some spots.
A part of the series titled ‘Tiny Travel Guides,’ this travel guide is a quick overview that focuses on several places to visit while visiting Busan, South Korea. South Korea’s second largest city, Busan has many places for the tourist to visit, including my top two locations of Beomeosa Buddhist Temple (absolutely exquisite!) and of course Gamcheon Cultural Village. Both make excellent day visits. And if you have the time, definitely visit Haeundae Beach! It has wonderful nightlife and famous for it’s street entertainment.
There are also suggestions for photographers on what kind of shots you can and should perhaps focus on when visiting these wonderful locations!
After a hike to a scree field leading up to a cave, one is rewarded with this particular view of False Kiva and the canyons below. A wonderful hike in Canyonlands National Park, the last bit of the hike will definitely increase your pulse as you keep sliding down the scree as you work your way up to the cavern!
A haunting visit to Lower Antelope Canyon brings us this beautiful photograph of the sandstone walls. The colors and the light play along with the haunting melody of the flute (played by our Navajo guide, Mouse) made this particular visit incredible and complete with lots of wonderful photographs!
