The Hula valley in the northern part of Israel is where I photograph most of my Avian/birds

The Ocracoke Lighthouse, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is one of my favorite places anywhere and I have a perpetual crush on this image of it. I hope you enjoy it too.

On the norther slopes of Bali is a wonderful setting with the famous temple built on Lake Bratan.  This is an HDR image that I simply applied a Sepia filter to using Nik Software Silver Efx Pro.

Standing on the rim of the extinct volcano, Mt. Wawomuda, we are looking across to the other side with the active volcano, Mt. Inerie, in the background during an early morning hike.  There are 7 active volcanoes still on Flores Island with this one taking on the classical cone-shape.

OK, sorry...this is ANOTHER Singapore photo that I shot last week during a thunderstorm west of the city.  Since I have been here about 14 months now, I have envisioned getting a lightning shot, but really with the more dramatic bolts of lightning.  This was not bad though and was lucky as no fancy equipment was used..handheld on our balcony railing.  Someone says they see a dragon in the clouds?

I shot this during a Tidewater Camera Club field trip to the Delaware seashore.  I was looking for something that I might enter into an upcoming competition with the theme "strong depth of field."  I wanted to use the leading line of the dock to guide the viewer back to the boats in the background, but I also wanted a strong element in the foreground to "anchor" the shot (pun intended).  I don't know how well I accomplished my objective.

If you look at the original size you can see Dun Caan, the extinct vulcano on Raasay, in the middle and the snow covered Cuillins on Skye in the background.

On the right is the cottage where Monty Hall spent a few months filming his BBC reality TV documentary (in which the MOD establishment, where they test under water weaponry, just a few hundred yards further to the right was never shown.)

I shot this while standing in the doorway of a slave quarters building that sits on the grounds of the McLean House in Appomattox Court House National Historical Site, VA.  I used the on-camera pop-up flash and then brought out the interior detail using the fill light tool in the Sigma Photo Pro 4 RAW conversion software.

One of the unique sites on Flores Island in Indonesia are the Spider Web "Lingko" Rice Fields.  This has been an age old tradition of the local tribes to bring unity to all the people.  They believed that the central point was a common and equal point for all the people to meet with the tribal head in case of challenges or adversity.   Equality was a big part of their life...who said democracy was dead!!

I saw Zara posted an image of this bay, so thought I'd put this one up. The driftwood & stone sculptures made it look a bit spooky. Reminded me of Lord Of The Flies, don't know why exactly.

This is at the north end of Totaranui Beach. The rock face is shaped like a petrified tree, with its roots sticking out of the sand. A magical calm place where you can sit for hours, meditating on time and the insignificance of man, listening to the waves breaking on the beach.

It was like being on the set of The Lord Of The Rings, at the foot of one of the Ents.

I think this may be one of the three or four really good images, out of the 2,500 that I took on this trip.

Punta Arenas calls itself the world's southernmost city, which is true by some definitions. It is really just a small town - barely more than a large village in first world terms - and as such it has legitimate competition for the title it claims. But it's a charming place within a spectacular region, and this is the best view of it that I caught in my short time there. Any critiques would be most welcome.

I woke up this morning and grabbed the camera to take this 3 image panorama of the moon setting over Singapore.  A rare site to see the full moon and few clouds to interfere.
