Nikon D800 – Stuck in Customs

Australis

Daily Photo – Australis

I traveled to Iceland four times and never saw the Aurora. It was not until I moved to New Zealand when the conditions were finally right for the ion storm to hit.

Water in Four Forms

Daily Photo – Water in Four Forms

I had on two layers, which kept out most of the cold. Actually, now that I think about it, the weather was perfect. My body was quite warm and bordering on too-warm, but my face was open to the ice-cold air, which kept everything perfect.

This spot is about a four-hour drive from my home. The edge of New Zealand is filled with fjords and drama, carved by the quirky Slartibartfast. Not only is it surreal here, but it feels like the edge of the earth and that humans are not supposed to be walking along its shore. There is every kind of earth and water here.

Daily Photo – the rock moved so slowly that I did not notice

This is a mysterious place!

This magical place is deep in Death Valley and virtually inaccessible. These massive rocks move across the desert pan, carving trails of time behind them. Countless theories exist about what causes this phenomenon. I stayed here all night, and this was taken just after midnight as the moon rose to make new shadows. I thought the moon might give some clues, but it did not. I lay on the hard pavement near the rock to see if I could sense movement. After half an hour, not only did I see no movement, but I also felt quite redonkulous.

I was completely nude while taking this photo. That has nothing to do with the photo, but I thought you might like to know.

Here’s one from way back in the archives. Maybe even my first full HDR tutorial… certainly one of the early ones. A shot from the Caribbean.

Don’t think I’ve shared this image before… in fact I think photos from Cleveland may be one of my rarest categories. So, either way, it’s worth a (re-)share… this is the stunning Severance Hall.

The Aurora Australis

Daily Photo – The Aurora Australis

Down here in the Southern Hemisphere our Aurora is the Australis rather than Borealis. Different name, same awesome. Here’s a little glimpse of it one night down at the tip of the South Island in Invercargill.

Sometimes when out exploring in NZ it seems like the landscape might go on forever. Here’s one such scene. Speaking of going on forever, my friend Rene recently walked from the top of the South Island to the bottom. I guess that proves it doesn’t really go on forever… either way, quite an achievement by him!

I think I spend at least 75% more time under bridges than the average person. Here is the result of one such occasion in Tokyo.
