Traffic Streaks Past London’s Big Ben

One of the great things we did in Europe was get lost. A lot. In London this mostly consisted of wandering around on foot without resources like Google Maps as a safety net. It was really a liberating experience, and something we’d recommend. Instead of rushing from one tourist spot to another, we wandered around, […]

You Can’t Close Nature – Acadia National Park During the Gov’t Shutdown

Over the weekend, we trespassed in Acadia National Park. Like many stupid criminals that inadvertently boast about their actions on social media, I feel no remorse for what I did. Call it what you will (I prefer civil disobedience), but I think I did the right thing. Regardless of your political beliefs as far as […]

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge at Sunrise

We were in San Francisco for a weekend earlier this year, and I had a couple of chances to photograph the sunset and sunrise. I knew I wanted to try both from the Marin Headlands, which is great vista in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area for viewing San Francisco from the other side of […]

Yosemite National Park Tunnel View Star Trails Sunrise

The title might seem like keyword spam, but it’s not. Star trails and a sunrise aren’t things that normally go together. If the sun is rising, you have too much light in the sky for star trails. However, if you keep your shutter open for over 5 minutes (339 seconds to be exact) at just […]

Yosemite National Park: Conquering Union Point

Over the weekend I visited Yosemite National Park with several other photographers I’ve met through the Disney fan community. It was an incredible weekend filled with wonderful photo ops, good times, and great friends. It was the most fun I’ve had taking photos in a long time, and the best group photography outing I’ve had […]

Cinderella Castle Kiss Goodnight Reflection

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 […]

Lincoln Memorial HDR

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 […]

The Winding Path Around Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant

Sleeping Beauty Castle, or Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant as it’s called in French, is the highlight of the Disneyland Paris “skyline,” but also has a veritable labyrinth of paths winding past and through it, making it a prime location to explore. One of these paths–the one to the left in this […]

Atlanta Skyline at Dawn

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 […]

Nikon D600 Review & Sample Photos

The Nikon D600 was the hottest camera of 2012, and it’s shaping up to be just as popular in 2013. This Nikon D600 review has comparison photos from Nikon D600, D700, and D7000, the cameras to which the Nikon D600 has been most often compared. It also contains tons of “real world” photos that I’ve captured […]
