Sadly much of the morgue at this state hospital had been destroyed, but the morgue drawers and doors still remain.
While in Iceland, I saw my first aurora borealis. On this particular night, I sat for a few hours watching the lights dance in the sky. It was incredible and very much worth the frozen fingertips.

The administration section of the building were preserved, as part of an agreement with the University of Alabama, which purchased the property and building, but the late 1800's era wings were demolished in 2016.

This mine was founded in the early 1800's, but unfortunately, not much history can be found about this mine after 1916. Though the mil structure is long gone, but its adit and shafts still exist today.
This image was lit with (2) Lume Cubes and a NiteCore flashlight.
(Disclaimer: Mines are very dangerous. Do not venture into these places without proper equipment or without someone who is educated about the hazards.)
I caught your gaze
beneath a cerulean sky
covering me in whispers
with each pulse of your heart
and touch of your hand
your voice carried me away

The Vestrahorn Mountains, in Southern Iceland, during blue hour.

Daylight seeps into the hallway from one of the isolation rooms in this Alabama Asylum constructed in the late 1800's.
The shadows on the way are caused by slats in the doors of the isolation rooms. These slats allowed nurses to check on patients and also allow air flow into the room during very hot and humid summer months many years before air handling units were installed.
Last July, during a boat trip to Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, we anchored in Reid Inlet just before sunrise and ventured ashore to explore the beach around the base of the glacier.
After returning to the boat and cracking open a few beers, we turned around to discover we were going to end an incredible day watching the full moon rise over the Reid glacier.

I do believe it's time for another adventure....
This September 2015 evening started out cloudy, so much so we couldn't even see hints of the moon. Just as the eclipse began, the sky cleared and I captured this image of the moon above a Southern California junkyard.
I wanted to see Moraine Lake for years because I always believed photographers adjusted the saturation of the water.
When I hiked up the hill and took a look for myself, I was pleasantly surprised to see this color was definitely natural.
I could have sat there for hours watching the clouds move across the peaks, but my Dad and his lady friend were waiting below and it would be a very very long and chilly walk back to camp.
Taken on the river behind our campsite during a trip through the Canadian Rockies with my Dad in July 2015.
I haven't photographed a car junkyard since 2015. They really are fantastic places to be in the middle of the night, beneath a full moon.
I definitely would love to be back shooting in one sometime in 2017. (I guess that's my first new year's resolution.)
