El Capitolio in Havana

El Capitolio in Havana

This is the El Capitolio (National Capitol Building) in Havana, Cuba. The building, seen currently under construction, is notable for how strikingly similar it is to the United States Capitol building. In fact, construction was overseen by U.S. firm of Purdy and Henderson – which may have had something to do with the similarity. Finished in 1929, it was designed by Eugenio Rayneri Piedra. Currently it is home to Cuba’s National Assembly.

Elk Grazing in Colorado

Elk Grazing in Colorado

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.

Iguazu From a Platform in Brazil

Iguazu From a Platform in Brazil

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.

Colorado's Bear Lake

Colorado’s Bear Lake

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.

Icelandic Coast

Icelandic Coast

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.
