Day and Night at Triple Falls, Glacier National Park, Montana

"Sun-Crowned Falls, Glacier National Park, Montana"

Triple Falls is a hidden location among the alpine meadows dubbed the Hanging Gardens in Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, Montana. This stunning waterfall is also known as Double or Quadruple Falls depending on the number of streams joining the Reynolds Creek as it flows towards lower elevations, often a reflection of how much snow […]





Wild Goose Island and St. Mary Lake, Glacier National Park, Montana

"Rainbow Over Wild Goose Island," Glacier National Park, Montana

Oh boy…where do I begin (again)? I apologize for having so little time to regularly update this blog and thank my loyal readers for continuing to follow along. In the past few months, some exciting opportunities have come my way that I hope to share with you soon. I have also been fortunate enough to […]





Yaki Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Everlasting Light

After waking up early on a cold April morning, I was somewhat disappointed to find that the dawn light at Yaki Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon was obscured by dense storm clouds on the horizon. However, one of the most important things I have learned is to never give up and […]





Little Stony Man Cliffs, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Little Stony Man Sunset

Beginning the short 0.5 mile late October hike to Little Stony Man Cliffs in Shenandoah National Park, I was brought back to my childhood by the flagrant smell of moist, fallen oak leaves covering the rocks along this short part of┬áthe Appalachian Trail. It had been exceedingly cloudy on our drive in to Virginia and […]





Sunrise Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Hoodoos at sunrise, Bryce Canyon

On such weekend evenings after a busy week of sweltering city life my thoughts inevitably drift off to the timeless permanence of the canyon country. Waking up on a frigid April morning to a buzzing phone alarm is all worth it; every such morning is filled with palpable excitement. Bundling up to see the sunrise […]





The Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona

The Horseshoe Bend

Located merely a few miles southwest of Page, Arizona within the boundaries of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, the Horseshoe Bend is surely one of the most spectacular river bends you’re ever likely to see. Getting there is simple – take US 89 south for about 4 miles from North Lake Powell Boulevard. The […]





Panorama Point, Arches National Park, Utah

Panorama Point

Located just past the Balanced Rock viewpoint and turn to the Windows Loop section of Arches National Park, Panorama Point provides spectacular views of the La Sal Mountains and Ham Rock. In fact, views of the magnificent snow-covered peaks may be also shot from the Patrified Dunes viewpoint. Both locations are easily accessible from the […]





Yavapai Point Sunset, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Yavapai Point Sunset

Yavapai Point on Grand Canyon National Park’s South Rim is unquestionably one of the most beautiful places to experience a dramatic, one-of-a kind sunset. It is also convenient to reach, as it is located just steps away from the Visitor Center. In the photograph below, the red light from the setting sun lights Wotans Throne […]

Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park, Maine

Acadia National Park, Maine

Rising 110 feet above the sea, the magnificent Otter Cliff towers above the southwestern shore of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island, making it one of the highest Atlantic coastal headlands north of Rio de Janeiro. The rugged shoreline is built to withstand the powerful crashing waves and blowing winds bringing fog onto the […]





Awaiting Spring, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

Awaiting Spring

It has been finally getting warmer in New York this week, and it seems everyone has springtime on their mind. I thought I would share this photograph of seagulls huddling together on the snowy Coney Island Beach after the last snowstorm, all facing the blowing wind together in anticipation of spring.   I finally got […]





For A Minute There, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

ForAMinuteThere

For a minute there, I lost myself.   This is not one of the world famous California coast beaches. This is Coney Island / Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, but there is no shortage of great images to be captured here. Although this is the birthplace of Astroland, America’s first theme park, it was not what I […]





Warmth on a Snowy Day, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

"Warmth on a Snowy Day"

After a day of shoveling snow yesterday, I had suspicions that the sunset would be great. I headed to Coney Island Beach, just 10 minutes from my home. As I traversed a good foot of snow on the beach to get to the shore, the colors blew up. Amidst all the snow and cold, I […]





The Lineup, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

"The Lineup"

Today I ventured out in the snow to find a special shot around where I live – Brighton Beach/Coney Island, Brooklyn. A few interesting compositional possibilities presented themselves, and this lineup of seagulls is certainly one of them. They were all huddling together – whether on the snowy beach (see the left part of the […]





Perseverance, Arches National Park, Utah

Arches National Park, Utah

I had composed this shot of the iconic Turret Arch in Arches National Park utilizing this dried up tree to demonstrate the permanence of these components of the rugged Southwest landscape. Upon examination, it immediately became apparent that the dark sky (partly because of the use of a polarizer) yields ample contrast and therefore, possibly […]





Into the Mystic, Acadia National Park, Maine

Jordan Pond, Acadia National Park

At the conclusion of a gorgeous day at Acadia National Park, Maine, dense fog covered Jordan Pond and the Bubble Mountains. The only remaining traces of the sunset was the light spilling onto the water from the part of the sky not enveloped by the fog.   I tried to preserve the mystical glow of […]
