Back in Las Vegas and finally got up for an early morning sunrise view of Red Rock Canyon out here.  It's a beautiful place, and, I know, not what most people think of when they think Vegas, but you can drive out here in just 20 minutes... A good break from the Casinos. I recommend you visit next time you're in Vegas.

I've spent a nice few weeks in Thailand, going all over the country... from the beaches in the south to the country's highest mountain in the north. Once you leave Bangkok, it's a very relaxed, laid back place. I've not been able to get many photos I'm happy with, but here's one. This shot is from Ko Phi Phi Leh, a small, uninhabited island with a few pristine beaches. It might look familiar to you from the movie "The Beach" which was filmed very close to here.

I've been in the Philippines for about a week now. I didn't expect Internet to be so hard to come by, but I ended up driving up North of Manila -- Baguio, Banaue, Bontoc, Sagada.  The rice terraces were the standout for me. I never made it to the place where they're supposed to be the most beautiful. This shot was just from the road on the way to Banaue from Bontoc. We got lucky with the timing and the distinctly purple hue of the sunset.... So nice :)

I spent a few days on Kauai, the "Garden Isle" in Hawaii. A really beautiful place and one that I'll return to again and again to try and capture it's beauty... This is from a rainy/cloudy afternoon, when the sun peaked through for just a minute. Of course, even when it rains in Hawaii it's still warm and people enjoy the outdoors. It never really gets cold here. :-)

From last year's Burning Man. I don't know these people; they didn't pose for me... That's one thing that's so wonderful about Burning Man, all these wonderful moments happen left and right... You don't have to set anything up. The opportunities are endless. I'm packing up my RV right now, getting ready to go to this year's Burn. I like to arrive a little late after the chaos of entry has subsided somewhat :-)

I'm in Cambodia now. Last night I may have witnessed (and photographed) something never before seen in the storied history of the 900 year old temple of Angkor Wat!  I'm being dramatic, yes :-) 
 
It began with my desire to take a sunrise photo. Its my first time in Cambodia, and I'd yet to visit the famous temple at dawn. I got up at 4:30am to be in place for the  sunrise. I was up so early, there were still stars in the sky. My trusty Tuk Tuk man Heng greeted me and we began the 30 minute drive out to the temple through the old town of Siem Reap. 

As we drew closer, we both noticed strange lights shooting up from the general direction of the temple and into the starry night sky. Heng has lived here since he was 11 years old and told me he'd never seen these lights. I speculated that they must be practice/preparation for some kind of show they're planning at the temple.

When we arrived outside the temple itself, the number of people there took me by surprise. Loads of tourists were walking across the bridge that crosses the moat, their flashlights and headlamps looking like tiny fireflies off in the distance.  Instead of following everyone in. I stopped at the exterior moat and began to take long exposure photos for several minutes.  Here's one of them.  

To the naked eye, the lights looked white and not terribly interesting, so I was quite surprised to see what showed up in my camera after leaving the shutter open for awhile. (Over on the left you can barely make out the tourists walking across the bridge.)

I've yet to see any other photos like this of the ancient temple, but as of last night, there must be a bunch in existence. I wonder if anyone got photos like this up close to the temple itself? (In my photo, the temple is that tiny structure in the middle that looks like a Disney castle...)

Anyway, hope you get a chance to visit someday. I'm loving the people and place. Cambodia has been an unexpected delight.

A major typhoon is touching down in the Philippines right now. I just left the country a few days ago and took this photo on the flight out. The Philippines has faced so much natural disaster... While there I visited the earthquake damage in Bohol. Over 300,000 people were displaced from their homes just a few weeks ago after the 7.1 quake. In Manila I stayed with a family who's home had been flooded multiple times over the years. In the worst flood, they lost their most treasured possessions. The Typhoon today (Haiyan/Yolanda) is the strongest storm on Earth this year and one of the largest tropical cyclones ever recorded in terms of wind speed (235mph). Catastrophic damage is expected. Fortunately, they think it's blowing by so fast that the flooding won't be as bad as the wind damage.

In just 2 hours I'll be on a plane to South East Asia.... So looking forward to this trip. I'm hoping to drift a bit... I want to visit many countries, but have no particular agenda. I love being in rural areas and slowing down of the pace of life. If things go as planned, I'll get Internet access and will share photos and thoughts about the trip. Here's a shot I took last October in an out-of-the-way part of China. It was one of my favorites of the trip and I still like it a year later... (Which is rare with me and photos!)   So excited :-)

Burning Man 2012 - That's the man off in the distance. I sat here for awhile with my camera and was taking long exposures as there was barely any discernible light left from the sun... Luckily, while I was waiting, some cyclists with the perfect color lights rode into my shot and into the distance and I got a long exposure with light trails. :-)

A scene from Burning Man 2012. This was an awesome moment that is both combination sandstorm (blowing down below) and some very unusual clouds (up above, obviously hehe).  I've been working on getting my stuff together to go on Tuesday.. I'm planning to arrive a day late and avoid the wait on the way in. Are you going?

Introduction
I know some people are confused about my photographs here. I started taking photos in October 2011, and after a few months it became an all-consuming passion. Since then I've been constantly traveling and taking photos. :-)
