Anitas in Reine Norway

Anitas in Reine Norway

Reine, Norway

You can nearly smell the briny waters of the Norwegian Sea’s Vestfjord—literally “the West fjord”—in this brisk scene. I shot it in the remote fishing village of Reine in Norway’s Nordland region.

And just behind me? Anita’s Seafood (https://www.facebook.com/anitasseafood/), a  restaurant and fish market serving both fresh-caught fish and dried cod. Arctic cod spawn in these waters during winter, but, by summer, they’ve moved along. So, villagers have taken to preserving their cod. At Anita’s, they re-hydrate dried cod over a seven-day period and then serve.

Northern Lights of Norway!

Northern Lights of Norway!

Finally got to see the Northern Lights! Seeing—and photographing!—the Northern Lights has long been on my bucket list. So, from transportation, accommodations, and all the usual travel details, I had planned as much as I could several months in advance for my recent trip to Lofoten, Norway. Still, there was one thing which was decidedly… Continue Reading

Starry Night at Little Finland

Starry Night at Little Finland

Astrophotography at Little Finland, NV Had the opportunity to spend some time in this remote section of Southern Nevada. I’m not sure I’ve seen such delicate fins of sandstone anywhere.

Stormy Greenland

Stormy Greenland

Or a storm clearing It was fun watching the storm clear in the Fjords of Scoresby Sound, Greenland! In this area of the Fjord, many of these mountain peaks are 1000-2000m or roughly 3000-6000ft tall! I had seen images from Greenland and this area, but I never found any that accurately displayed the size and scope… Continue Reading

Hamnøy Village

Hamnøy Village

It took four separate (and lengthy!) airplane trips and another one-hour ride by car to get to what feels like the end of the earth. But all that travel—and braving the elements above the Arctic Circle—was well worth it. This is winter in Hamnøy Village, located at the far west end of Norway’s Lofoten Islands. The…

Gold Rush on McGee Creek

Aspen aglow over McGee Creek Early last month, some photographers friends, my son, and I met up near Mammoth Lakes, California in the Eastern Sierra Mountains. Just after sunrise, we ventured over to nearby McGee Creek just in time to catch the aspen trees, glowing neon-yellow, in the morning light.   [Photo caption:] Yellow aspen trees glow…

Orange Beach Glow

Carlsbad Sunset Almost Missed For every gorgeous sunset, I have been lucky enough to capture on film there are scores of others that get away from me. Sometimes I’m a few minutes too late. Sometimes too many clouds muscle in, obscuring my view. And, sometimes, admittedly, a particular sunset just doesn’t look as spectacular when…

Sandstone X Marking the Spot!

Sandstone X Marking the Spot!
