Overlooking the Vermillion Lakes in Banff, Canada.
The 16th Street Station in Oakland opened in 1912.
The building was designed by architect Jarvis Hunt and constructed for the Southern Pacific Railway.
Tools found inside the Knight's Foundry in Sutter Creek, California.
In the 1960s, two of Coca Test Stands, Coca I and Coca IV were used to support the Apollo program, which sent astronauts to the Moon.
Coca I was completed in 1956, but was replaced in the 1960's it was replaced by a larger stand, to support larger engines.
With a little of your love,
I can retract
and I'll try.
It's not forgiving,
show me how
and I'll try
to give you a little of my love.
I realize this photo is nothing spectacular, but the feeling I get while staring into this image evokes amazing memories from an unforgettable journey.
This was taken on my last hour in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado last month. Casey, Tony and I had spent many days exploring 4x4 trails, the backroads of the San Juan mountains, waking up surrounded by only nature and solitude each morning. It was hard to say goodbye and as I drove down this highway one last time, the clouds opened up and put on a lovely light show for me as if to say, "Goodbye for now. I know you will be back soon."
It's been quite a few months since I have set foot inside an abandoned asylum.
This particular one was beautiful. Loved the way the blue-green tiles let the color bounce around inside this medical ward.
Ever feel like you can't breathe
then you wash over me
I need an escape
you're the light
don't stop, not tonight
and I'm never going to leave your side.
The San Juan Mountains in Colorado are speckled with hundreds of mines. I wish I had the time to photograph and explore them all...
I had never been inside an ice cave until I went to Iceland earlier this year. It was a surreal experience being feet below the ice; one that took a while to grasp. Watching it melt and travel beneath your feet, it was hard not to think about the impacts of Global Warming.
The backroads of Colorado unturned a number of old, abandoned mines, most in a state of natural decay without much human influence.
Last week I returned from an incredible week in Colorado, exploring 4x4 trails and the lesser seen parts of the San Juans.
The higher elevations saw a light dusting of snow a few days before we arrived, which gave the landscape a beautiful glow.
This 4x4 trail led us past a ghost town and mine before winding up to this mountain top.
It can try to break you,
overbear and control
every inch of you gives in
then you pay for what others lack,
but your soul cries for more
when you focus the light
after opening your eyes
you see the stars up close.
This country is amazing.
Seeing landscapes with a fresh blanket of snow while the Northern Lights danced for 6 nights in a row definitely helped Iceland earn some extra bonus points.
Someday I hope to return...
I could stare at these mountains all day.
We returned to this location a few times during our trip to Iceland and each time, the weather presented new conditions for us to observe.
