Photo: South Iceland

One of the difficulties I experienced photographing Icelandic landscapes was trying to convey the sheer scale of the rock formations I frequently encountered. There are very few trees to be seen and, outside of Reykjavik, people are few and far between. I was constantly looking for reference points that just weren't there. How big is that rock when there is nothing to compare it to, except a bigger rock?

It's hard not to like Manhattan in New York. It is the heart of the archetypal 20th century city. But what particularly interests me, as we move deeper into the 21st century, is how it is aging. It is one of the few cities in the world that has skyscrapers dating from each of the last ten decades. Looking up in downtown Manhattan gives you a cacophony of elements competing for the sky.

I just love those distinctive old Romanesque towers that seem to be everywhere in Tuscany. The beautiful walled city of Lucca has quite a few, like campanile of the Basilica of San Frediano in this photo. They have such a timeless elegance.

Early on a Sunday morning, the city of Florence in Italy can be eerily quiet, the streets devoid of people, the River Arno still and undisturbed. It's a good time to see the Ponte Vecchio, the Medieval bridge which spans the river at it's narrowest point and which is usually thronged with tourists.
