Spring in New York City

Daffodil Walk

  Spring is one of the most enjoyable seasons in New York City, breathing new life into the Big Apple and presenting the photographer with a multitude of options for capturing this annual revival. The flowering cherry trees seen on nearly every street provide a much-needed visual oasis from the tiresome and repetitive brick and […]





Majestic Appalachia, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee

"Spring Awakening," Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee

The natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains in Great Smoky Mountains National Park is fully revealed during the spring. Slowly waking up from its winter slumber, the valleys fill with the sound of rushing streams and singing birds. Blooming dogwoods, budding trees and a variety of wildflowers that make the Smokies so famous cover the […]





Flowering Yucca, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Flowering Yucca

I’ve recently returned from a trip to the Southwest where I was fortunate to spend some time with my folks. They were very excited to see the iconic sights of the canyon country around Moab, Utah that I’ve previously photographed and enthusiastically discussed. The vistas they had witnessed over the course of a week exceeded […]

"Hanging On," Nikon D800 handheld, NIKKOR 70-200 f/2.8, 1/100 sec at f/5, ISO 800

In the great spirit of Mother’s Day, I’m sharing some images of a mother black bear with her three cubs captured this spring in the Smokies. Mama was busy protecting them in a truly menacing fashion just like a loving mother should while teaching the kids how to climb trees. Across all cultures, borders (and […]





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 […]





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 […]





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 […]





The Subway, Zion National Park, Utah

Spring Rush at the Subway

Although hiking to the Subway in Zion National Park is no easy task, ┬áthe wondrous sight of the tunnel carved out over centuries by the tributaries of the Virgin River is incredible! It is a hike that is limited to 50 visitors a day and requires a backcountry permit from the Visitor Center, which may […]





Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Cinderella's Castle

Inspiration Point provides unparalled views of the Bryce Canyon National Park Amphitheater. Best viewed at sunrise or shortly thereafter, magnificent monuments of the Silent City may be seen on the left hand side. On the right side, one may see many fantastic structures, including Cinderella’s Castle, pictured below. If you are spending one day in […]





False Kiva, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

The False Kiva

It is not every day one gets a chance to feel like a modern day Indiana Jones attempting to locate a relatively unknown and hidden archaeological site! There are few places in North America as deeply shrouded in mythicism and spirituality as the False Kiva. Located in the Island in the Sky district of the […]





Through the Seasons, Central Park, New York City

Gapstow in December

Gapstow Bridge, looking over the Pond at 59th Street, represents one of the most iconic Central Park landmarks. I have captured this wonderful stone crossing through autumn, winter and spring.       A little bit about the history of the bridge – originally a wooden structure designed by Jacob Wrey Mould in 1874, it […]





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 […]
