Stray Dog in the Ruins of Pompei

A stray dog sleeps in the shade among the excavated ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompei, Italy. Through the doorway you can glimpse the larger theater from the city. It’s amazing to wonder the streets of this city and imagine what life was like before the wrath of Vesuvius buried it almost two millennia ago. As adorable as the stray dog was several signs warned against coming in contact with the strays for safety reasons. #travelphotography

Aspens Along Monitor Pass

This morning my thoughts are on the beautiful Aspens of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Here some late season aspens show off their gold last year along California’s Monitor Pass (State Road 89). The scene reminded me of a pointillism like something from Georges Seurat, where each leaf is a dot. I was also attracted to the bluish color of the branches along the drainage at the bottom of frame and how they contrasted with the gold above. #landscapephotography #fall

Aspen Dreams

Although in Southern California it doesn’t feel like it, elsewhere across the Northern Hemisphere fall is in full effect. Here in Colorado’s amazing Kebler Pass last year the largest grove of Aspens on Earth (so I’m told) was ablaze with the finest gold. I never get tired of being in a fall forest of Aspens. Colorado is such an amazing state and I wish I was back there right now. In this spot I particularly loved the forest floor of ferns. #landscapephotography

Escaliers de Triomphe

Stairs of Triumph? The way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris is to ascend this spiral staircase. I was told that in total there are 284 steps to reach the top, most of which can be seen here. I was struck by the fibonacci like pattern as the stairs swirled into the heights of the arch above. #travelphotography

Gondolas of Venice

A row of docked gondolas line up along the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. In the background the clock tower of Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark’s Square) dominates the skyline. #travelphotography

The Eiffel Tower at Sunset

No visit to Paris would be complete without gazing upon its most iconic monument, the Eiffel Tower. Here the last rays of the day light up the clouds a bit as the sun sets below the horizon on my first night in this amazing city. #travelphotography

Light in the Garden I

The forest has come alive in Atlanta's Botanical Garden. Artist Bruce Munro has unleased an alien invasion of light through his really cool fiber optic light installation throughout the forest and in various other places in the garden. It was really neat to see. The garden is a real treat during the daytime as well. Above, the elevated path through the Storza Woods provides a pretty unique view of the forest. #photography #night #atlanta

Postcard from Mars (Hill)

Aptly named Mars Hill resides in Death Valley National Park along Badwater Road. On a rainy first day of March here is a panoramic view to the west and north as rain falls in the Panamints and up near Salt Creek. A little dry playa speckled with a splash of green marks a small depression on the massive expanse of the salt flats that extend from Salt Creek to the southern end of Death Valley. You can make out the white salt and the various hues of salty mud. The wind eroded dark rocks of Mars Hill and its reddish dirt definitely provide fuel to the imagination for your own Martian explorations. Indeed NASA scientists have visited Death Valley many times for experiments and testing related to Martian missions.

Rainy Day at the Devil's Golf Course

Scattered storms drop rain throughout Death Valley National Park in this late afternoon view of the Devil's Golf Course in Death Valley National Park. While no rain fell on me here, you can see rain falling in the Panamint Range miles away. Rain was reaching the valley floor in places. This was a radically different mood than any other time I've visited this place. #landscapephotography
