Canadian Clouds

Canadian Clouds-Inside Passage

Canadian Clouds-Inside Passage, Canada, July, 1985

~ view larger ~

I wanted to make the storm clouds over the Inside Passage the subject, but felt the need to show a little terra firma as reference. That is how this composition came about. The storm never materialized, but it made itself known in a most beautiful way before the sun went down.

Tip: Never use a tripod or mono pod on a boat. The engines send vibrations through the deck so you will have sharper images handheld.

Captured on the deck of the Canadian ferry, Queen of the North, Victoria on the way to Alaska. This boat was an ideal photography  platform while going up the Inside Passage. Another cool feature was the top deck where you could claim a spot for your sleeping bag on the astroturf to sleep under the stars at night.

This is one of ten nighttime light installations on water in Seoul, S. Korea. One was more beautiful than the next so I ended up capturing them all. It was a fruitful night!

In October and early November, the Great Smoky Mountains is one of the best places to be in the east for autumn leaves. Every overlook looks like it’s in 3D.

Hummingbird Contemplating Tree

Hummingbird Contemplating a Tree

Hummingbird Contemplating a Tree, AZ, 1994

Hummingbirds are in constant motion. They are sugary nectar charged with insatiable appetites, and don’t remain long in any one spot. This feathered friend overstayed his journey for sweetness to contemplate a tree…totally unaware of the riot of color behind him. I captured his magnificence on Kodachrome 64 in 1994.

One Armed Saguaro

One Armed Saguaro, Arizona

One Armed Saguaro, Arizona, June 1995

~ view larger ~

For some reason or other, Mother Nature gave this saguaro only one arm…possibly to make him unique enough to be deemed photography worthy. I understand that it takes 60 years for a saguaro to grow the first arm, but this cactus was definitely old enough for two or three. I circled the desert giant a few times before finding the right composition, the angle that showed the most power and strength.

Traditional Korean Wedding

Korean Bride

Korean Bride, Traditional Wedding, S. Korea, June 1994

~ view larger ~

Captured on the fly with a Nikkor f/2.8 80-210 zoom, I caught the bride in what appeared to be an how-did-I-ever-get-myself-into-this-mess moment. Not speaking Korean, this is pure conjecture on my part.
