Mt. Assiniboine – Sept. 8-11th, 2013.

Mt. Assiniboine. A place I have googled and researched for a few years, after first seeing photos from this majestic part of the Canadian Rockies by the likes of Jason Edlund, Koveh Tavakkol, and Kevin McNeal. I’m not sure how many times I have talked about this place to my wife, Anna, over the last few […]

Afternoon to dusk, with Mitre Peak – Milford Sound, New Zealand.

We spent the night at Punakaiki and then continued on our journey. The next destination was Lake Wanaka and this single tree that grows in the lake. I spent some time photographing sunset and then sunrise the next morning, but unfortunately the light wasn’t that great. I may end up posting a couple images from […]

Pancake Rocks & Blowholes – Punakaiki, New Zealand.

Our next destination was the Pancake Rocks and Blowholes at Dolomite Point near the town of Punakaiki, New Zealand. We left Cape Foulwind early enough so I would have plenty of time to explore, look for compositions, and find out where the sun was going to set.  After a short walk we reached the main […]

Archway Islands Sunset – Wharariki Beach, New Zealand.

Jumping back to the sunset before “Wharariki Holiday Park Star Trails”, I snapped these photos at Wharariki Beach of the Archway Islands and the surrounding area. While taking in the evening light the tide was going out and I kept having to adjust my composition every few minutes. I was really hoping for some spectacular light […]

Lake Taupo – Waikato Region, New Zealand.

After exploring Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland, we headed to Lake Taupo to shoot it at sunset. “With a surface area of 616 square kilometers (238 sq mi), it is the largest lake by surface area in New Zealand, and the second largest freshwater lake by surface area in geopolitical Oceania after Lake Murray (Papua New Guinea). The lake […]

Karekare Beach – Name This Photo Contest.

Here’s another photo from our time spent at Karekare Beach. Be sure to read the contest details at the bottom of this post! Buy the print here. This photo was taken after all the color had disappeared from the sky. I found these two shells that had washed up on the beach, just waiting for […]

Karekare Beach – Panatahi Island Sunstar.

This was taken a few minutes after Panatahi Island Sunset. This was the kind of sun-star I was hoping for in the last shot, but it was not meant to be. The clouds had already lost most of their color and so I chose to frame a simpler composition, focusing more on the “island” and the […]

Karekare Beach – Panatahi Island Sunset.

After capturing Golden Light, and with the sun nearly setting, I turned my attention back to the composition I had selected earlier. This is the rock formation I had mentioned in the previous blog post, and I actually found out through Google maps, that it’s called Panatahi Island. I waited for the sun to break […]

Karekare Beach – Golden Light.

Continuing  from  Piha Beach, we headed south to Karekare.  Arriving here well before sunset, it gave us plenty of time to look for compositions. My main goal here was to take a shot of the rock formation that juts out of the ocean just off the coast. I brought along an iPhone with The Photographer’s […]

California Coast – Rancho Palos Verdes.

Our last day in California, I was really hoping to get down to Laguna Beach for sunset before our flight to New Zealand that same night. I had been researching Laguna Beach for quite some time leading up to the trip, because of the interesting coastline and rock formations . There was a flash flood […]
