Margerie Glacier - Fujifilm X-T3, 1/125 @ f/9.0, ISO 160, 56mm. This is an early morning shot taken from the deck of a cruise ship in Glacier Bay, Alaska. Needless to say, it was a spectacular sight! The blue tones are real. What you don’t really get from the image is a sense of scale. This block of ice is a mile wide. You can just barely make out seals on the ice floes in the foreground.

Mariposario - Fujifim X-T3, 1/125 @ f/5.6, ISO 800, 80mm. Shot this at a butterfly garden in Mindo, Ecuador. With hundreds of butterflies fluttering throughout this enclosed space, it was difficult to choose where to start shooting. It was magical!

Twilight on the Baltic - Nikon D750, 1/400 @ f/13, ISO 125, 120mm - I hate to admit it, but this was taken from the deck of a cruise ship. Still, we try to capture the best light where we find it. This is one of my highest rated photographs.

Calle Benito Juarez - Nikon D7000, 1/200 @ f/11, ISO 100, 34mm - A small village in Oaxaca, Mexico soon after sunrise. The mist blanketed the dirt streets, further diffusing the soft light. I have shown this image in a local gallery to positive feedback.

Prague Chocolate - Fujifilm X100T, 1/60 @ f/8.0, ISO3200, 23mm. I took this photograph at dawn before the crowds of tourists arrived. Only a few pigeons and a couple of rats to keep me company.

Dimming of the Day - Fujifilm X100T, 1/125 @ f/3.6, ISO400, 23mm. As photographers, we are always looking for that special light. I found it one early spring evening in a small Ohio farmhouse that belonged to one of my sons. This is the breeze-way just minutes before the sun set behind the hills. It’s a poignant shot for me because my son and his family have since moved out west. After visiting this home for six years we will never see it again. But I have this photograph any many others to keep the memories alive. On a bright note, the rocking chair did make the trip. Oh, and I borrowed the title from a Bonnie Raitt song.

The Photographers - Nikon D7100, 1/640 @ f/8.0, ISO250, 80mm. This was shot from the grounds of Olana overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains. Although we were there to shoot the sunset, I was intent on capturing my fellow photographers at work and in silhouette.

Enter the Temple - Fujifilm X-T3, 1/125 @ f/11, ISO 400, 16mm. One of many Angkor Temples in central Cambodia. The greatest obstacles to getting a good pic; the crowds and the intense heat. Still, this place should be on any photographer’s short list.
