The Ghost of Toronto

Order a print here It was chilly November night when Emalee and I got on that ferry at the Toronto docks bound for Ward's Island, but we had a mission, and that was to get a view of this beautiful skyline. The ferry ride across Toronto's Inner Harbour was short but frigid. Even inside the closed

Sunset Over Indian River Bay

Adventure and beautiful views don't have to be restricted to traveling to far off lands. This shot was taken near Indian River beach in Delaware Seashore State Park. I had just finished photographing a group of teenagers skim boarding in the surf and was walking back to my tent when I caught this view of

Kerið Crater – Iceland

Though the weather refused to cooperate with us for more than a few minutes, we still made the best of our three day stay in Iceland. The rain made it difficult to get good shots without constantly wiping down the lens. That being said, the moody atmosphere of the stormy weather made for some pretty

Strokkur

Geothermal energy is a powerful force, and for Iceland, a way of life. Last month, while in Iceland, we got to experience the power and beauty of geothermal energy, firsthand. From the soothing hot springs to the abundant geothermal electricity, there is no shortage of this energy sources use. One beautiful and natural example of

Forest Freeway

Sometimes, grabbing a photo you love can be done right near home, and with less than ideal light. That was the case this weekend when we decided to take an impromptu hike at Ricketts Glen State Park here in Northeastern, Pennsylvania. The light was harsh and bright, as one might expect on a July afternoon,

On The Shores Of The Delaware

Paddling is an outdoor pursuit that I can enjoy both alone and with a group. This past weekend, we loaded up our boats and headed for the eastern border of Pennsylvania to paddle a section of the Delaware river. The nice thing about paddling this river is that you can use the shuttle system that is offered

Into The Surf

I don't do a ton of beach trips because I usually like to explore the mountains, but since getting to a beach really isn't a huge time commitment, Emalee and I took a short weekend trip to Rehobeth Beach in Delaware to play in the ocean. Of course, that meant fun with my GoPro. http://youtu.be/8DifLEDez4A

Stranded On The Shores Of Lake Powell

With each press of the gas I could feel the front end of the car sink deeper into the sand. Laughing, I thought to myself “This is just part of the adventure, right? I’ll remember this part of my trip forever, right?” I got out of the car, got eye level with the front bumper
