As I was focusing on the monkeys and was just about to press the shutter something disturbed the pigeons and they filled the sky with their flutter.

I saw this tall ship in Venice and then a day later it arrived in Rovinj in Croatia, I was patiently waiting for it to get closer when I noticed they were starting to furl the sails, luxury in the Adriatic

I have finally returned from my long planned trip to Italy and Croatia, and both have their beauty. Here is a morning shot of the old town of Rovinj in Istria in Croatia..

The lawns that adorn the George Washington Parkway along the Potomac River in Virginia, are always excellent autumn spectacles at the end of October in the D.C. area.

I took this last Saturday at Janes Island State Park, Crisfield, Maryland.  This was just as the sun was about to set, looking from the park's campground.  I was struck by the pattern of the clouds and their reflection in Daugherty Creek Canal.  I waited a good while after this shot, hoping the sun would eventually "ignite" the clouds, but it never happened.

Located in central Myanmar or Burma, Inle Lake sits in the highlands and provides a wonderful place for locals to fish and setup life on the lake.   The locals can do amazing things with their fishing canoes and counter-intuitively stand on the tip well-balanced, even while rowing the oar with one leg.   This was sunset and time for many fisherman to go home.   I rushed out with the local guide on a power canoe to catch sunset as he did not understand the urgency to get out there.  But after awhile, he realized photographers are just plain weird...for which I qualify.    It was worth the trip.

The signage on shopfronts is generally a confusion of fonts, hyperbole, spelling mistakes and humour.  I drove past a little wooden shack that proudly proclaimed to a 'Shopping Center' and a small workshop announcing itself as 'Nhdlovu Global Trading Ltd.'

At the edge of this town in Zambia you can find this incredible building, not surprisingly called The Castle.  The last few decades it has been running as a hotel in various states of dilapidation. When I was walking around there did not seem to be any guests and no indication that there had been any recently. 

The building was begun in 1948 by the English District Commissioner called Errol Buton, who reputedly sketched out its design on the back of a cigarette packet. It is also stated that he used a labourforce made up of convicts. When it was finished the castle overlooked a swamp where the Lundazi and Msuzi Rivers met, which Button dammed using soil carried to the site in grass baskets. The dam now supplies Lundazi's water and is home to several hippos, but I did not spot any of them.

It is amazing what a difference the time of day and direction of light makes on a scene. This image was taken this morning with sunrise coming from my 8 o'clock position. Stunning light.

This is a repeat location for me annually. The colors will be amazing in the coming week or two and I am giddy with excitement since getting the D800 36MP camera earlier this year.

Early autumn at Rusland in the South Lakes.  I do love this spot and try to pop back and rephotograph every few weeks or months. 

This time it is a 4 shot panoramic version.  The scene changes so much through the seasons and different weather!  I still want a classic autumn shot, and am fancying a go at it in the snow (although getting there down the narrow lanes could be a little exciting!)

A lovely spot in the South Lakes, Birks Bridge is hidden away down a back road near Bowland Bridge. I stop off here quite often to take a photograph, usually in the rain. It just felt so peaceful sitting there this morning though, a really special wee place.

I took this series in Sisteron when we were slowly winding up the trip back from Lac de Castillon to Chainaz Les Frasses in France. It is always being called Porte de la Provence, in which, the gateway to Provence. Its geographical location is very unique; it is sitting at the junction where Le Durance meets Le Buech.

I captured this picture in Cinque Terre, Italy, while on myvacation to Europe. I just simply love the overall landscapes of all villages, especially the vibrant colors of the buildings. I was very excited and I couldn't stop snapping photos as the landscape was extremely unique.

Yesterday I took a trip to one of my new favorite spots in the area, Point Reyes National Seashore, and explored Abbot's Lagoon. A beautiful and quiet hike to a protected marsh area.. more photos to come. I took this shot on the way home.. well, I sat there for about 45 minutes and shot about 150 frames.. but you know how it is. I wish I could show a higher res version of this because some if it get's lost in the downsizing. What do you think?

 I hold my breath taking this photo last September @ Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines, for I know that every person who passed by inside the Heritage Street (UNESCO recognized historical site) will definitely beguile and compelled by its inner symmetry specially during night-time.

I shot this yesterday afternoon at Long Wharf in Cambridge, MD.  The brand new Choptank River Lighthouse is at the end of the pier.  I used my newest lens (only about 3 months old), the Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5.  I am exceptionally pleased with its sharpness.

So.. I finally took a day off after months of hunkering down at work. I took a trip up to Sonoma Valley in California to sample some wine and enjoy the warm autumn weather that this area is known for. The grapes are just about ready to be harvested and I resisted the temptation to sample a few as I took my shots. Hope to go back there soon.

I shot this yesterday at the Easton, Maryland airport.  The event was billed as the Great Chesapeake Balloon Race.  Unfortunately upper level winds ahead of an incoming cold front made it too dangerous to launch the balloons.  Hot air balloons always make colorful photographic subjects.

On Easter Island there is an excavation area called The Quarry where 90% of the stone statues still remain, not fully unearthed (the others are scattered across altars mainly along the coastline). This shot features four moai and two humans - who by astonishing coincidence happen to be my wife and daughter!

On the last morning of your stay in the Guilin region in China, we got up early for sunrise along the Li River in the town of Yangshuo.  This was taken crossing the bridge prior to us boarding a small bamboo boat to catch a local fisherman.   The karst peaks are very unique along this part of the river and a highlight of the trip.
