During a two-day visit to Stowe, Vermont, I purposely awoke very early in the morning so I could set out to get some sunrise photos. As I traveled about the area, searching for a place that was high enough up so I could capture a spectacular view, I stumbled across the von Trapp Lodge. For those of you not familiar with the history behind this lodge, you can learn more here.
This photo was taken around 8:00am, which was about 45 minutes after the sun had risen. I did actually capture the sunrise in some of the other shots I took, which I’ll be posting to this site shortly. As I was packing things up, I had to walk across the street back to my car and as I looked to the right, I saw the view you see in todays photo. I loved the way the road curved about and seemed to disappear over the horizon.
In case it isn’t obvious in this photo, it was freaking cold this morning at around 24 degrees. My fingers, nose
Spectacular, yes? This is one of my favorite shots and I’m sure you can see why. I took this glacier photo during a 7-day Alaskan cruise with my family towards the end of May, 2010.
These are the “Sawyer Glaciers” and are located at the end of the Tracy Arm Fjord, which is a 35-mile long stretch of ocean with 3000 foot high granite walls along both sides.

As our ship was approaching the Sawyer Glaciers, the Captain announced
In July, 2009, my wife and I had the opportunity to travel on one of the world’s largest and most luxurious cruise ships – The Queen Mary 2. (Also known as the “QM2″.) This picture shows what guests see shortly after they board, although I actually took this picture during the early morning hours of the last day of our cruise. Had I not waited until 2am on the last day to take this shot, it would be almost impossible
During a 5-day cruise that my wife and I took on the Queen Mary 2, we stopped one day in Halifax, Novia Scotia. We both decided to go on a morning/afternoon tour of Peggy’s Cove. Based on what I had read about Peggy’s Cove, I knew it would provide for some great photographs.
Our excursion began around 9am at the ports in Halifax. When we boarded the tour bus, it was a very gloomy
In September or October of 2009, I traveled to Las Vegas to attend “PubCon”, an Internet Marketing conference. This was at a time when I had just started really getting interested in HDR Photography. So, during my free time, I toured around the town and took as many photos as possible.
