The Snow Ghosts of Big White

This is the peak of Big White looking West to the Monashee mountains across what they call the ‘Enchanted Forest’. The previous day it snowed like crazy, and this next day it was powder top to bottom. The trees when covered with snow are locally known as ‘snow ghosts’ – great name!

Paris Eiffel Tower At Night Viewed From Jardins Du Trocadero

The Eiffel Tower is one of those iconic symbols that is mesmerizing to look at, day and night. Was in Paris for a work event, taking time to tour the city before things got started. This is looking South East from the edge of Jardins du Trocadero across Pont d’Iena, using a 3.2 second time lapse to create the blurring light effect from car taillights.

The Multi-Colored Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees of Maui, Hawaii

The Rainbow Eucalyptus trees of Maui are found on the drive to Hana. Like good tourists, we read up on them before heading out, and yes they are there ready to be touched and photographed 🙂 Everything about the color is natural. Annually patches of outer bark are shed, leaving the inner bark exposed. This then darkens to a mix of blue, purple, orange and maroon. It really looks like someone painted the trunks!

30 Minutes To Sunrise Atop Haleakala Crater At 10,000 Ft.

Sweet! We awoke at 2:30am and were in the car by 3am on our way to the peak of Haleakala Crater in Maui. A steep switch back road with no street lights or guardrails, you climb for hours, breaking through the ceiling of clouds, and reaching the main lookout shortly after 5am. Patiently waiting until dawn breaks, we were rewarded with almost an hours’ worth of changing light until finally the sun broke the horizon. This picture, about half hour before sunrise, has the moon and stars still visible, while the early glow of the sun spreads across the clouds (sitting below the horizon).

What you can’t see here is the group of 30+ people behind me, watching Tommy and Mary lose themselves in their music on the streets of London, England (look at window of the bus to see a few of those people reflected). Pure emotion, amazing chemistry, incredible drumming, and loud… very loud.

Upside Down Bicycle Riding In London, England

This goes in the books of ‘I can’t do that, and not sure I want to do that, however very cool to watch you do that!’. Skills and attention seeking were on full display near the London Eye – Waterloo train station area on a recent trip to London, England. The 7 guys in the background staring surely add to the moment’s intrigue.

Feeling Moody – The skies over Hong Kong’s skyline

Hong Kong has a dramatic skyline, day or night. On this morning, the skies looked rough, making Hong Kong appear somewhat moody (or hung over after a fun night?).
