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

Alesund Norway

Alesund is a coastal city in central Norway that is known for it's Art Nouveau style. In 1904 the entire city burnt to the ground and from it's ashes rose the city you see today. When we got to Alesund, we were expecting a bit more hustle and bustle considering we have spent most 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,

Signs Of Adventure: Baxter Peak

Even for a day-hiker, reaching this sign is an accomplishment in and of itself, which is occasionally followed by the vertigo of the Knife Edge. For the southbound thru-hiker it is the beginning of the adventure, and it is a significant milepost for a flip-flopper like myself. Most importantly, it is the dramatic and iconic

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

Capturing Capitols: Photographing The 50 US Statehouses

I've done a lot of traveling within the United States over the past few years, traveling from one big city to the next, capturing different sights with my camera. Back in 2012 while covering the Presidential primaries in New Hampshire, I made a side trip to the capitol building in Manchester. My friend Bill, who happened
