This curious upside-down house in Furnas, São Miguel really surprised me (as I drove by). I battled the relentless rain to try and capture this thing in the most interesting way. The house itself is located near Rua Dr. Frederico Moniz Pereira and is not actually a house – it’s an electrical substation.
A love lock is something lovers attach to a fence or bridge to signify their love. Often they include thier names on the lock. Here in Antwerp, Belgium and installation with a large letter “A” provides the perfect location for this expression of love. I happened upon this great installation on a long walk through this wonderful city and wanted to capture this feeling.
On our way back to Denver there was an incredible sight to our left. Elk had come out in substantiontial numbers to graze along the hill, so I stopped to try and capture this incredible sight. I had learned in a previous encounter (at a golf course) that elk can be very skittish. Since they’re quite imposing one on one, I didn’t think having an entire group coming at me would be smart if I startled them.
Living in a place that includes lava rock formations, white-capped mountains, and some of the most amazing and otherworldly views; it’s easy to forget it gets cold here. And, for those living in this small village, I think they’ve become experts in cold management.
When you visit Iguazu falls in Brazil, the highlight of your tour along this walkway has to be this platform and the vista beyond it. I tried to capture it with no signs of people and get as much of the wonderful details I possible in the moment. You’ll really want to see this picture in full resolution detail to get a sense of what this looks like.
A vista so incredible, it could be on the side of a beer can. Colorado has a litany of scenes like this that you might find yourself with too much to shot pictures of.. I loved how the mountains contrast with the human activity lower in the picture (in this case a parking lot for a national park).
The beautiful Bear Lake in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain National Park area, with it’s litany of mountainous views, is full of opportunities to soak up rich scenery. Given that this location sits at an elevation of 9,450 feet, you have to do everything slower. It was a cold day in this shot too, but also clear enough for shooting this scene at the tip of a nature path that stretched around the entire lake.
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.
Havana is a city of contrasts. Outside, buildings are adorned with bright colors, beautiful shapes and they often look pleasing, if not older. Inside many of these buildings, however, is another story. This is a place of jury rigged wires, crumbling walls and general disrepair.
