Take a Polar Plunge in Minnesota

10 Comments 24 February 2012

American has had a pretty mild winter so far, however it’s still cold enough to freeze lakes in Minnesota. On my recent trip there I was able to experience one of the things that makes Minnesotans great – their love of the cold weather. I admire people who live in the Northern US; they have [...]

Terelj Park Mongolia – Photo of the Week

17 Comments 03 February 2012

One of the best things about doing a Ger to Ger trip in Mongolia is that you get full access to the families and the culture.  You learn, you communicate, your spread knowledge and understanding.  I have another ulterior motive though – staying with families in their gers give you great access for photography.  The [...]

Photo of the Week – Royal Gardens

1 Comment 29 April 2011

In honor of the royal wedding, I thought I should focus the Photo of the Week on something royal.  Since I’m not photographing the wedding, the next best thing is the Royal Botanical Gardens near Kandy Sri Lanka.  It was a hefty entry fee of $10USD a person to see orchids, but it was cheaper [...]

Photo of the Week – Ella, Sri Lanka

7 Comments 22 April 2011

Happy Earth Day!  What better way to ring it in than with lots of oxygen! The hike to Ella Rock in Sri Lanka takes you on railroad tracks, over waterfalls, and through tea fields.  But before you get to the top, you must make one last steep climb through a tall forest of trees.  I [...]
