A Parque of Many Paths

A week of work, a day off, a walk through the park. I’ve been sidelined from posting lately, but I’ve been thinking of Spain and it’s time to get back to photography.

Two Trees Against the Coming Storm

After two weeks of being mostly offline, a return to posting. This incredible cloud formation was just minutes before the sky around Lake Naivasha opened with a massive storm.

Mountains and Desert

The craggy, green emptiness of the Gobi, in a National Park a few hours from Dalanzadgad.

The Coming Storm

In the late afternoon light, we race across the South Gobi to reach Dalanzadgad before the sky rips open.

Boom Scenario

Empty streets. Quiet but for the grinding rumble of snowplow blades scraping the pavement. Fresh snow underfoot. More than two feet between Friday and Saturday. A city paralyzed. And beauty all around.

Giraffe

From a fabulous visit to the African Fund For Endangered Wildlife. I could watch these massive, fascinating creatures all day.

Thirds

Cold water after a long and difficult hike to the top of Cerro Chato, a dormant volcano near La Fortuna, Costa Rica. The proportions made me think of Mark Rothko.

On the edge of a parking lot, about 25cm worth of snow.

Cedar Portal

In a silent forest of cedars, poplars and ancient granite, a void worthy of a fantastic fable.

Falls 4

When I originally edited my New Zealand trip galleries, the Milford Sound portion of the trip made for some difficult decision making. There were just too many amazing things to see in that corner of the country. This shot, taken from the boat, was left out of the original collection.

South Island Dusk

Ten years ago today, I returned from three weeks around New Zealand. I’ve posted most of the photos that I like from the trip, but revisiting the collection yielded a few more. This is an unmodified scan of a slide. The grain, the colours, the exposure — all as it…

Where in 1862, the Union Army hunkered down for its eventual battle with the Confederates.

Gentle Surf

Quiet surf against the flat rocks of Georgian Bay.

Tree Tunnel

Near the entrance to the park, this tunnel marks the beginning of the trail that leads to the first overlook of the falls.

Evening Rocks

After the last several posts from Toronto, the opposite of the city. Looking north on Georgian Bay.

Antique Falls

A long exposure of a group of falls on the Argentina side, processed to look like vintage wet-plate photo chemistry.

Behind the Falls

Nearing the end of the trail on the Brazil side of the falls, a glimpse behind the water. This perspective is from the top left corner of the Devil’s Throat photo.

View From the Boat

The roar. The spray. The sheer power of nature on stark display. Heading into those falls, it didn’t take long to be very glad I put the camera into a dry bag just after this shot.

Read More

Devil’s Throat

On the Brazilian side, looking up the “Devil’s Throat” toward the mouth of the falls, with Argentina on the right. These shots had to be taken quickly because of the extraordinary amount of spray coming from nearly all sides.

The Mouth

The beginning of the falls, at the top of the “Devil’s Throat.”

Tiers

Looking through the trees on the Brazil side of the falls. The rightmost side of the walkway at the top is where On The Edge was taken.

Sunset Falls

People departed. Tour boats stopped. Just the roar and the early evening sun over this massive ring of waterfalls.

Read More

Double Falls

A pair of “tiny” waterfalls near the end of the main trail in Iguazu National Park. With hundreds of falls in the park spilling millions of gallons of water per minute, it’s easy to overlook these tiny cascades as afterthoughts.

On the Edge

Looking west toward the Brazil side of the falls.

Radioactive

Few things generate such an immediate, visceral reaction as anything vaguely “nuclear.” Yet for such an evocative word, very few people actually know what radioactive material is. The green liquid in this vial is radioactive phosphate, a substance used for decades in molecular biology research. Using this specific material (not…

Rapids and a Bird

When the veil of fog and rain finally lifted, there was yet more water. The rapids upstream of the falls have a lot of character, and stand in stark contrast to the still, leafless trees.

Read More

Fog at the Falls

In the fog of the late afternoon, there was only noise. So thick was the mist in the air that the famous falls were invisible, even standing right beside the gorge into which they fell. While waiting for a break, I turned in the other direction.

Frigid Falls

New Year’s Day meant a long drive from Toronto to Baltimore. It was a slight detour to visit the Falls, but worth the diversion to spend a few hours walking along the water.

Bow In The Reeds

Taken during my ill-fated attempt at a timelapse photography using a tripod mounted on a moving kayak. At least I kept the boat upright and my glasses on my head. This is also one of the few shots I’ve posted with no post-processing.

The Opposite of Winter

Amidst two feet of snow, ice and general Decemberish weather on the shortest day of the year, this shot from this summer struck me as the polar opposite of what’s outside.

Read More

Swamp Water

Another from the swamp in Edgewood, about a half hour north of Baltimore. It should be worth returning in a few months amidst the snow and frozen water.

Read More

Yellow Tree

I’m trying to have my camera with me more often, and stumbling upon a swamp with interesting trees is reward enough for carrying my gear around.

Broken Sky

Shot from a moving van after visiting the Seno Otway penguin colony, I just missed a Ñandu (similar to an Ostrich) that was running across the field. This shot was skipped on the first pass, but pulled out now because I haven’t posted anything in forever. So much for one…
