The Kiss Goodnight is one of those chills-inducing moments at Walt Disney World for us. For those unfamiliar with the Kiss Goodnight, it’s “show” in the Magic Kingdom that plays thirty minutes after the park closes and bids guests a fond farewell. Cinderella Castle cycles through its lighting schemes, including a few ones that you […]

I previously mentioned that on our first night in Rocky Mountain National Park, we just missed the sunset over Rock Cut, but that there was a silver lining. These elk were that silver lining. Right after leaving Rock Cut, we saw dozens of these guys grazing the tundra. We had already seen a couple elk […]

Full Moon Over Musée du Louvre

The Louvre Museum in Paris has a reputation as housing the world’s greatest collection of art in a building so sprawling that one could spend months exploring the art and still not see everything. Due to this reputation, we resolved defeat from the outset and didn’t even bother going inside. While much on display in […]

Last weekend we traveled to Washington, D.C. to visit a friend who works in the Obama administration. My first stop on Saturday was the Lincoln Memorial, where I hoped to get an empty early morning wide-angle shot of the Lincoln Memorial, and a sunrise photo of the Washington Monument with the United States Capitol Building […]

This is a view of the Atlanta skyline at dawn last Saturday. We had a great time in Atlanta. We toured CNN, visited the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coke, and headed out to Stone Mountain for sunset. My favorite thing was easily World of Coke. I’m acutely aware that World of Coke is one […]

Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park is one of those iconic National Park sunrise locations that is quite glorious. It’s very easy to find, and the placid morning water makes for some great reflections. When researching what I wanted to photograph in Rocky Mountain National Park, it immediately jumped out at me. So, our […]

Disneyland Summer “Magical” Fireworks

Posted on Jan 16, 2013 by Tom Bricker  •  Photography  •  13 Comments

Disneyland’s fireworks show varies by season. The main show is the incomparable “Remember… Dreams Come True!,” which is a montage of memorable lines from Disneyland attractions. For people like me who are primarily Disney theme park fans, this show is great because it focuses on the parks as opposed to animation. There are also seasonal […]

The Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the opulent Palace of Versailles (or the Château de Versailles) in the Île-de-France region of France.
