Photography: Nepal Wares

I took this picture back in April of 2015 when I was in Nepal on a unicycle tour through the Annapurna mountain range.  Vendors with portable shops would setup their items to sell alongside the main pathway in the little villages. The night before it had snowed a ton, and we had to turn around and head back down the pass instead of completing the entire circuit. I remember the morning in great detail as it was my birthday. This picture was taken on the way back down to lower elevation.  I hope to go back one day to finish the... [read more]


Photography: Speckles the horse.

More horse photos! This photo was also taken when I was going through Spain heading from Barcelona up to San Sebastian with a few friends last summer. We touched through France, and I’m pretty sure I snapped this picture while we were on the France side of the world. It is another HDR combined from five difference exposures using Photomatix — the program is awesome for creating HDRs. Download it from Amazon using my link!   


Photography: Horse eating grass in France

I ran around with my tripod taking tons of pictures of the horses on a windy hilltop in France last summer. I used  Photomatix to generate this picture by combining five different exposures.     Use Photomatix! I highly recommend it. Below shows some of my workflow; the image at the left is one of the original exposures. The ones at the right are experiments with color correction to give the photo different feelings and moods.


Photography: Redwoods in Yosemite

I used to not really like hiking. There seemed to be no purpose to it; you followed a trail for no real rhyme or reason and usually ended up back where you started. I never sought out hiking as an activity, but I always have been a hiker, it is just that I  never considered what I was doing as actual hiking. As a kid I would wonder around in the trees following deer trails simply to see where they went. As an adult, I would hike miles to go climb some rocks or see some fantastic waterfall. I never...

Photography: Andorra supermercat

The supermercat in Andorra. Beautiful country for people who love the outdoors.


Photography: Chai Tea in India

In the back streets of Kolkata they make delicious chai tea. 


Photography: Street Dogs Chilling by the Ganges in India

It is hot in India, and the dogs know how to relax.  


Photography: Monkey by the Taj

 The monkey, sitting on the edge of a roof top next to a striking red blanket. Near the Taj Mahal, India.


Photography: India Street Dog near Kaziranga National Park

The street dogs of India…this one was near Kaziranga National Park in the Northeast corner of India.   


Bee hives and Northeast India

Back in February of 2012 I visited the far north east area of India in Meghalaya. There are some amazing living root bridges, and the hike to get to them led through some tiny villages. I’ve always been fascinated with bees, and it wasn’t until a few years later that I actually started keeping bees myself, but I came across some interesting local been hives. This one was made of a few logs hacked together:   The trip to get to them was sort of sketchy. Well, I wouldn’t really consider it sketchy, and it was fun crossing steel bridges... [read more]


Photography: India Monastery

Far up in east India, after a long windy road, there is this monastery. It was almost to Butan…     Taken 2/22/14, f/16 1.3s (camera was sitting on the floor). 


Photography: Portovenere window (v1)

Some windows in Portovenre, Italy. The first of two. The framing is cool.   


Photography: Classic Manarola, Cinque Terre

When people think of Cinque Terre they frequently get an image of the town Manarola. I’d like to cleanup the lens flare in the pictures below, especially the second. The day had few clouds, so the contrast isn’t as striking as I’d like. The hike to here was lots of fun, and quite challenging.    


Photography: Vernazza Italy

 A view of Vernazza, in Cinque Terre Italy. This isn’t an HDR; it is a single RAW file that I manipulated a bit to make it look more vibrant and pleasing. I enjoy how the town is jetting out to the center of the photo, but also like the flag that sort of takes your eye away from the background. There is some slight lens flare around the castle on the peninsula that I need to clean up.


Photography: Boats in Portovenere, Italy

Here are a set of boats in Portovenere, Italy. A wonderful town that wasn’t as touristy as Cinque Terre, and not as bustling as the much larger La Spezia. We had taken a train from Camogli to La Spezia and then a boat over to Portovenre. While walking along I thought the boats would make a great picture; but the sun was too bright, and casting too many shadows over the town itself. An HDR can help pull out details from the shadows, but I decided to give it a blue overtone and make it feel more wispy.  The first picture... [read more]


Photography: Cinque Terre Boats in Manarola, Italy

I decided to go old-style with this boat photo from Manarola, Italy — one of the “Cinque Terre” towns on the Italian west coast.   


Photography: Camogli Beaches

The beaches in Camogli are small round rocks. I really enjoy them more than sandy beaches. I hate how sand gets everywhere. It gets in your shoes, your shorts, your hair and just feels gritty. The small stones aren’t as comfy to lay on, but I really enjoy not having to deal with sand.  In the first picture you can see some faux whale/dolphin animals that were made for an upcoming communication festival.    


Photography: Camogli, Italy – View From the Castle

I’ve been visiting Camogli quite a bit with Costanza, since her family has a history of vacationing in the small Italian seaside town. I captured quite a few pictures that I’m happy with, and here is the first of a series. Camogli, as seen from the castle. I climbed up a dilapidated set of stairs that led to a long ago bricked over door, and took this hand-held HDR picture composed of 5 exposures.


Photography: Nepal White Himalayas

The himalaya mountains are fabulous; I couldn’t stop staring at them. I can’t remember if this was early morning or early evening — but the mountain was just glowing from the sunlight, while myself and the surrounding area was engulfed in shadows. The moon appears on the edge. Notice how the skyline of the mountain pulls your eyes towards it. Taken 4/8/15, ISO 640, f/20, 1/60, 70mm with a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM lens and 5D Mark III.
