It’s no secret, New England is my favorite part of the U.S.!
And with school starting, the leaves have just the beginning of a yellow tint to them, it makes miss New England that much more. Living in Germany, I do get that same crisp air, beautiful yellows and reds, lots of decaying leaves on dirt paths, but there’s still something so homey, so comfortable about the northeast. I do miss it!
What do you miss? Does a certain season make it even more palpable?
This Alaska caribou looks up from his evening munch.
Driving the Alaska Highway, you can see all kinds of wildlife and this caribou is only one of the animals we saw. In the summer, they look a little patchy as their fur is thinning and eventually the velvet on their antlers will come off.
Fact: The only difference between the caribou and the reindeer is that the reindeer has been domesticated.
What wildlife have you encountered in your travels?
A glimpse into a quiet moment in a cowboy’s life…a little chat by the cow fence.
My favorite part of being a travel photographer is capturing moments like this one. Taking a glimpse into someone else’s life, a moment such as this where you wonder what cowboy wisdom is the father imparting on his son.
I can’t imagine what a cowboy chat entails, but they all look content and happy with thier break in the sun, relaxing on the fence.
What type of photos do you like to capture while traveling?
One of the most remote highways on earth, the Dalton Highway takes you to the top of the world.
One of our more memorable road trips, Jim and I drove the Dalton highway to Deadhorse, Alaska for the adventure of it. A 414 mile long, gravel road, it’s Alaska rough through and through.
The Dalton was built to parallel the Alaska pipeline for maintenance and supplies. The only regular traffic on the road is the oil workers and the truckers. Believe me, it is not fun to follow a truck on that gravel. It kicks up some big rocks. [...]
Summer and fall in the U.S. brings all kinds of small town fairs, competitions, and other exciting events, such as these Highland Games in Western Washington.
Pictured here is a Scottish dance competition during the annual Highland Games in Washington state.
This is one of the many different types of competitions they hold, along with Scottish games such as the caber toss, hammer toss, and the sheaf toss. It was the first time I’d been, and all the games and competitions were new to me.
It was a lot of fun. Of course all you have to do [...]
Topping the hill in San Francisco, you can see why kids love a good fire truck! Red and shiny, fast and heroic, here come the firemen to save the day, whether it be to put out a scary fire or to save a shivering kitty who is up a tree!
We love to drive! It gives us so much more control over what we do and see, and take photos of, for that matter.
This is a mountain shot taken somewhere along the Alaska Highway, north of Dawson Creek. No matter where you are on the Alaska Highway, the views are amazing, and you get to see all kinds of wildlife to boot.
Don’t think you’ll be out there on your own, though. Especially during the summer, there is an amazing amount of people on the road, from small cars to [...]
If you are heading anywhere along the coast in New England this summer, this is a sight you will see over and over again. Brightly painted floats, rope, fishing gear, and cute little Cape Cod homes dot the area with total charm.
I love New England, and I love bait shops. Well, to be honest, I love what is usually next door to the bait shops more…the lobster shack, or the clam shack, or the whatever-kind-of-fish-you-would- ever-want shack! Delicious!
New England, specifically Connecticut, is my home and I get to go there once [...]
Traveling gives you the opportunity to get a glimpse into somebody else’s life.
I’m fascinated by homes around the world. You can tell a lot by a person’s home, and front yard for that matter.
Therefore, I’ve compiled ten photos of front yards from around the world. What can we glean from them?
This first house was the house Jim and I owned in Alaska. Alaska front yards contain a lot of snow, and usually the machines and tools that help you remove the snow or at least a couple of four wheel drives to get you up that [...]
