Posted on Sep 14, 2016 by Tom Bricker  •  Tips  •  3 Comments

Here are my recommendations for Joshua Tree National Park, and tips for accomplishing it all as part of a relatively quick stop on a California road trip. For me, this is the great thing about Joshua Tree–it is relatively easy to hit the major highlights in a few hours if that’s what you want to do, […]

Moulin Rouge Info & Tips

Posted on May 18, 2016 by Tom Bricker  •  Points of Interest  •  4 Comments

The Moulin Rouge, with its red windmill pop culture prominence, is probably one of the most famous landmarks in Paris. On our first trip to France, we visited this iconic show. By “visited” I mean that quite literally, as we went to the location but didn’t go to an actual show. In the process, we […]

Milky Way Over Racetrack Playa

Posted on May 17, 2016 by Tom Bricker  •  Reports  •  3 Comments

A little over a year ago, I made my first visit to Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park. (I wrote some nonsense about it and alien life here following the trip.) I was instantly enamored with the place. It was beautiful, tranquil, photogenic, and a bit mysterious. It was also a challenge to visit. […]

Part 1 of my Pacific Coast Highway Trip Report left off with a nail-biting shootout with a squad of FBI agents, and left readers wondering whether our heroes would escape in a blaze of glory. Okay, that’s not quite what happened, but on our way up from Shark Fin Cove, we were stopped by two […]

Yosemite National Park: Tunnel View Alternatives

Posted on Feb 4, 2015 by Tom Bricker  •  Photography  •  11 Comments

If you’ve ever been to Yosemite National Park, you’re probably familiar with Tunnel View. It’s the iconic view in Yosemite, the place where everyone stops for a photo. It’s an incredibly cliched photo, but as I often stress, many photographic cliches are that way for a reason: because they are awesome. There’s no denying that Tunnel View […]

Posted on Feb 3, 2015 by Tom Bricker  •  Photography  •  3 Comments

When it comes to landscape photographers and the rest of the population, there is a huge chasm in terms of one type of photo: the selfie. Not only do landscape photographers rarely step in front of the camera themselves, but they (we) typically try to eliminate all people from their photos of a given landscape, […]
