Nevada Fall, Yosemite National Park, California USA

One of many beautiful views along the John Muir Trail near Little Yosemite Valley in the High Sierra. Part of the fun of photographing waterfalls is that the flow is constantly changing and no two images are ever alike. Throw in a rainbow and the scene becomes a mesmerizing show of light and form. Have a great day everyone!

Restaurants and galleries in old town Vieux Lyon, France

Lyon is France's second largest city and a vibrant cross-roads of new and old. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site it is rich in history, and its old world charm is a visual treat.

Waves at Waipio Valley beach, Hamakua Coast, The Big Island, Hawaii

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea.   -Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Josip Jelacic Statue and woman with red umbrella, Jelacic Square, Zagreb, Croatia

Generations collide in old town Zagreb. The capitol of Croatia is a vibrant mix of classic European architecture and a modern attitude.

Wildflowers above Sand Dollar Beach, Los Padres National Forest, Big Sur, California USA

Another view from one of my favorite spots on the Big Sur coast. Sand Dollar Beach in Pacific Valley is the longest beach on this stretch of Highway 1, and a great location for photography, surfing or just soaking up the view.
Have a great weekend everyone!

The Wave, Coyote Buttes, Paria-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, Arizona USA The Paria Wave is one of those magical spots that needs to be seen up close and personal. The permits are not easy to obtain, but well worth the wait and hike to this remote location.
