Mesa Arch Sunrise in Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Utah.
A popular and beautiful destination for many photographers, both professional and amateur.
If you decide to go, arrive hours before sunrise. It gets busy!
The sun sets over Provincetown on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
The homes are sitting on the Cape Cod Bay side.
Under a dark and cloudy sky, a flower gives the impression of “Life Alone” on a plain in Iceland.
A country that has an otherworldly appearance in parts of the land.
Redwood Forest. Standing with the Giants.
In California is the Big Basin Redwoods State Park.
My son poses with the Giants.
Ice & Steel. A damaged steel girder sits in front of the Skaftafell / Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland.
In the background on the left, a glacier is visible.
Forest in the Abstract. Photograph taken on Cape Cod. Don’t recall exactly where the forest was but it was close to the Highland Light. This is not a painting, nor were any “filters” used. At the time it was raining and the water drops on the lens (in the top third of the photo) display a rainbow effect. For me, this image could be the cover of a horror novel.
On May 29th I trekked into New York City for “Manhattanhenge”. A twice year event first commented on by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson comparing it to Stonehenge. I had emailed Dr. Tyson (7-14-07) when I spotted his photo on the Astronomy photo of the day page (NASA website) and he told me where he took it. So I headed to that spot and was surrounded by people. Since Dr. Tyson first mentioned Manhattanhenge all those years ago, it has become a New York event with crowds gathering and standing in the middle of the road. (Guess they forgot people get run over in the city.) As you know, the day started out beautiful. Not a cloud in the sky. Then at 7:30PM I spotted a wisp of a cloud and, after standing for 3 hours (you can’t leave your spot), I felt the “uh-oh” moment. Sure enough, the sun was blocked. So I present my “Sun Hiding Behind the Clouds Manhattanhenge”.
