Mt. Elephant
Kruger Park, South Africa

What do you get when you put a minimalist in the middle of South Africa with a telephoto lens and he's too close to the wildlife to even take in the whole animal? You get this image!

It was absolutely wonderful to see these beasts both from afar, and so close that I could get this shot of just the back of a beautiful, gigantic elephant standing right in front of me. I was fascinated by the texture of the skin on his back, so decided to capture the very peak of his back in this image which I'm titling "Mt. Elephant", for if it was on a distant horizon I'd certainly want to take a hike to the top.

The Five Friends
El Dorado National Forest, CA, U

You wouldn't believe how much snow California still has on the ground, high up in the mountains. Much more so than the average year, which is a good thing as the last few years have been exactly the opposite. It's melting quickly though, which creates a different set of problems all together! I'm looking to a good, "average" winter one of these years instead of the extremes we've been getting.

The Infamous Thurderbirds
Travis AFB, CA, US

The thunderbirds went streaking over my head the other day while performing their wild in-air stunts. It's always been a dream of mine to ride in a high speed jet (just without the weaponry). They put on an amazing show and make it look easy, which it certainly can't be.

A Warped Space Odyssey
Chicago, IL

It was so gray and overcast and this building was so amazingly pure black that this shot was one that worked out even with a pure-gray sky. I love looking up at tall buildings, but this one almost seemed ominous to take in.

Mystery Animal Under Ice
El Dorado Forest, CA, US

What do you see???
So as I dangled my camera over a frozen river to take pictures of the ice, this particular spot stuck out to me as these bubbles in the ice immediately reminded me of an animal. But, various other people I've shown this image to either don't see it, or see a completely different animal! It's kinda like a naturally-made Roschach test I guess. What do you see? I sure hope someone else sees the same animal that I do.

Gulliver's Finger
Buenos Aires, AR

As you may remember, I've always loved looking up at bridges and their support structures. The last similar picture I posted was from Dublin, IE and the image in this bridge is nearly on the other side of the world in Buenos Aires, AR.

Leaves Over Glass
Seoul, KR

I happened to get to South Korea at the perfect time to see the fall colors. The parks, like the one I took this image in, were lit up with stunning yellows and reds. I thought the blue building behind this one made a nice backdrop to the reds in these leaves.
