Zion National Park, Utah

Sun, 29 Mar 2009 16:12:35 GMT


From the La Verkin overlook off of Rt. 9, I look back across the desert plateaus at the high cliffs that make up Zion Canyon in the distance.

Waterfall on the Virgin River, Zion National Park

Tue, 03 Mar 2009 21:36:21 GMT


Almost half way into the Narrows hike, the Virgin River takes a vertical plunge. Luckily, there is a trail around the falls or this would have been one tretcherous descent without technical equipment. A mile or so downstream, the Virgin River will meet up with Deep Creek, trippling the flow and substantially decreasing the water's temperature for the second half of the trip.

Spring in the Desert, Las Vegas, NV

Fri, 27 Feb 2009 00:38:46 GMT


Juniper trees in bloom carpet the desert floor in a yellow-green glow and give the air a most sweet aroma. In the Spring, the desert comes alive bringing beauty to even the driest and most desolate of places.

Waterfall, White Oak Canyon

Wed, 18 Feb 2009 17:41:57 GMT


White Oak Canyon has the highest concentration of waterfalls of any stream in Shenandoah National Park. In less than two miles, the creek makes at least six major plunges.

Zion National Park, Utah

Layers of red sandstone rock are exposed showing off natural artwork in patterns formed by the deposition and erosion of the rock.

High Rock, Maryland

Tue, 03 Feb 2009 17:00:12 GMT


At just over 1800 feet in elevation, High Rock marks the highest spot on the Appalachian Trail in Maryland, only a few miles from the Pennsylvania border. High Rock is also a hang glider launch with vehicle access, so the lookout is more fequently visited and thus graffitied up than it would be as a hike-in only vista. This shot looks north into Pennsylvania.

Bluff Mountain Tunnel

The Blue Ridge Parkway runs through Bluff Mountain. It is the only tunnel in the Virginia portion of the scenic drive.

Three Ridges Wilderness

Wed, 19 Nov 2008 21:30:34 GMT


A view from Chimney Rock in the Three Ridges Wilderness looks toward The Priest, a 4000ft. peak in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.

I realize its been the better part of a year since I've last posted any images here. I started posting some to my main journal, but I think I may revive this as well. Many things have happened in the past year. I went to Utah's Zion National Park, I started exploring the Shenandoah National Park, several friends got married, and I made the quantum leap into digital photography with the aquisition of a Canon EOS 50D. Going digital has allowed me to shoot more often and get the results back much quicker. As a result, I may have an influx of new photos along with some old favorites and I can hopefully keep this stream alive with some interesting shots. I doubt I'll have the variation to keep it as a photo of the day deal, but I'll have enough to do a photo every couple of days without hopefully repeating subjects. As always, keep an eye on my Flickr stream to keep up with my latest work.

Grayson Highlands, Virginia

Thu, 10 Jan 2008 19:54:30 GMT


In the southwest corner of Virginia lies the highest elevations in the state. The Grayson Highlands contain Mount Rogers and reach elevations above 5000 feet. This eight would normally be tree-covered but previous use coupled with dry conditons, frequent fires, and high winds have prevented much of the forest growth to return. Instead, we find a high altitude meadow with grasses, goldenrods, and asters to compliment the fine views.

View on Mount Osceola

Sun, 06 Jan 2008 16:57:11 GMT


Fall in the White Mountains can be a magical time. The wet forests generally mean a longer foliage season with brighter and more vivid colors. The trees were starting to turn here as early as mid-September. Mount Osceola is one of the New Hampshire 48, the 48 peaks above 4000 feet. The summit contains a treeless rock surface that plunges into a cliff offering some great, but limited views.

White Mountains, New Hampshire

Fri, 04 Jan 2008 17:11:00 GMT


As I awoke from the shelter next to Mountain Pond, the air was still and the lake was silent. The warm water produced a thick layer of mist against the cold air. As the morning progressed, the mist slowly rose off the lake and the scene was clear.

Millions of years of erosion has cut narrow channels into the sandstone formations across the southeastern United States.

Acadia National Park

Fri, 14 Dec 2007 15:44:07 GMT


The carriage roads are one of Acadia's main attractions. These paths are perfect for a long walk or a short stroll for those who want to avoid the more strenuous hiking trails. The carriage roads are known for their many stone arch bridges across water ways and other roads.

The Harvest Moon

Tue, 11 Dec 2007 18:31:41 GMT


When the Harvest Moon rose over Saco Bay, the staff and students at the Ferry Beach Ecology School left dinner to watch the moon make its appearance over the horizon.

Marina City, Chicago, IL

Tue, 04 Dec 2007 05:01:53 GMT


Chicago is known for its extravagant architecture. Marina City, one of the city's more famous structures, seem a bit out of place among the boxy skyscrapers around it. The round apartment buildings each contain a rotating marina underneath at water level.
