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.

Gobi Outpost

A solitary settlement amidst the low dunes of the Gobi Desert, just outside Dalanzadgad, Mongolia. All the essentials (left to right): mean guard dog (who chased our Hummer), ger, motorbike, truck, another motorbike.

Gobi Sky

There were many shots out the window of moving cars on this trip, but this continues to be one of my favourites. Also, it was out the window of our Hummer.

Arctic Clouds

A rare break in the clouds from 39,000 feet (11.8km) above the Arctic Ocean, on the route between Washington and Seoul.

10km Over Algeria

Flying between Amsterdam and Johannesburg last week. I probably should have pulled out my proper camera.

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…

No Rain

In the Atacama Desert of Bolivia, distant clouds gather above a peak. It’s high altitude and very very dry.

Straight Up

At Patapsco Valley State Park, near Baltimore’s airport.

Moulin

The site of an ancient windmill sits in a field near the coast, in the Basse-Normandie region in northwestern France. It’s just a few kilometers from the D-Day beaches. There are folks who catalogue the various windmills in the region, but I don’t know any more about this one.

Overcast Traffic

With a view just slightly different from last week’s Wet Street, a wider shot of the neighbourhood around the Arc de Triomphe. The ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde is in the distance.

Oh Yes, It Will Save Many Lives

It is warm. For the first time since my departure from Baltimore, many hours and 15,994 km of flying prior, I notice the air temperature. It is distinctly un-planelike. And humid. I have arrived in the terminal of Lilongwe’s airport and am staring out the window at the lush green fields reaching to the edge of the parking lot. Taxis and shuttles board their passengers for the half hour trip into the capital city. Rather than heading to the city, I wait for my backpack, naively hoping that the South African Airways staff will somehow discover it in the empty plane and bring it to me. When they finally tell me the bag is still in Johannesburg, I find a taxi and set out for my hotel.

Leaving Holland

Climbing southward out of Amsterdam, bound for Paris. The forests and farms of The Netherlands about to disappear below the clouds.

Lake Ontario Rainbow

A few minutes from Niagara Falls, the storm broke and let light shine north to the lake. I couldn’t pull off the highway in time to catch the full arc.

Broken Crate

After a long hiatus from posting pictures, I’m back with something somewhat new. This is a 3 shot (-2, 0, +2) HDR of the Gulf Of Mexico, processed using the amazing tools in the new Photoshop. More to come, I hope, and sooner than six months.

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…

Cloudy Lake - New Zealand

When it rains…

The site of the fifth highest annual rainfall anywhere on the planet, Milford Sound sees some 9 m (30 feet) of rain pour from the sky each year. And most of it seems to be coming down tonight. After driving through places like “Devil’s Staircase Bluff,” so many rivers that they’re numbered rather than named.
