I had been so preocupied with the ocean (behind me) that I hadn’t spent time looking a the lighthouse that brought me here in the first place. This beautiful building and scene is made all the more amazing by the mountains behind it.
The striking beauty of the sea smashing into these coastal lava rocks was hypnotic. In many ways Iceland can seem like another planet, cold and captivating. This morning after the sun had risen, I stopped at a wonderful costal area near Londrangar to capture this long exposure of water and rock meeting.
This time of year (November) in Colorado is close to mating season, so these elk are out grazing in all sorts of urban places. I found a large group on a golf course interrupting the players on this uncharacteristically mild afternoon. And, the peace between human and animal is striking and strong in this city.
Sunset in Havana, and indeed most caribbean countries, is a very special time. It’s when the sun’s intense heat lets up. And, with this cooling effect, people start to flood the streets, clubs, parks and other outside areas to socialize. I wanted to capture one of Havana’s iconic locations literally and figuratively in a different light.
Dancing is something most of us know that Cubans love to do. In fact, I think it’s a bit of a cliche that dancing comes second nature to Cubans. But, scenes like this one make me re-think that. On this afternoon, I was blessed to find a group of people in Havana’s Parque Central playing music and dancing. It really all seemed so effortless and happy.
Very reminiscent of Alberta looking towards British Columbia., this Icelandic landscape is as beautiful as it is cold and unforgiving. Days on this northern are short, and I really wanted to capture some of the landscape in all it’s glory. Stopping along the side of the road near a farm house gave me a nice view of this mountain range.
