The beautiful Vestrahorn Mountain, towering at 1450 feet, on Day 3 of our trip in Iceland.
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.

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.)
Beautiful area of Glen Canyon, Utah, taken back in December 2015.
After searching for over an hour for this location the night prior, we decided to return for sunrise the next day to give ourself more time here.

The early morning sun breaks through the window of this Alabama asylum and lands on the crumbling wall of a day room in a patient wing.
We spent our last day in Alaska, during a trip last July, in the forest of Sitka.
I enjoyed hiking alongside the creek and discovering species of plants I had never seen.
Inside a wing of the former Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, in New Jersey.
This hospital remained in operation for just over a century, but sadly it was demolished in 2015.
Last night's sunset was beautiful.
The waves were large and thrashing about the shoreline, retreating and leaving behind excessive sea foam on the sand.
It was a constant game of cat and mouse, dodging the sneaker waves as each set rolled in moments apart.
It was a perfect evening.
I wish architecture was still designed with the same attention to detail and ornamentation as it was back in the early 1900's.
A beautiful misty morning hike in the forests of Sitka, from my trip to Southeast Alaska last July.
I am heading out for a hike today. I'd rather #OptOutside instead of shop on Black Friday.
