Rainforests, cloudforests, high mountains, and even cityscapes. Ecuador was AMAZING. I finally got to shoot river otters, some rare birds, and even llamas under a volcano.

Now that I have most of the critters and plants identified, take a look at the collection (Travel -->South America-->Diversity of Ecuador). 

Special thanks to Greg Basco and Foto Verde Tours, and Lucas and Frank at Tropical Herping.

Spectacular ICELAND My first trip to Iceland was magnificent.  In June, my son Sean and I joined Nature Odyssey Worldwide Photo Tours, led by Nathaniel Smalley.  The dramatic waterfalls and beaches were amazing! Icelandic horses were playful and full of character. A memorablre evening was spent at a lagoon and beach with large chunks of ice that separate from a nearby glacier and float to the ocean. Check out the new gallery (Travel-->Europe-->Iceland)!

Java and Bali (Indonesia) Adventure Much of June was spent on the islands of Java and Bali in Indonesia.  Once again I joined a Nathan Horton Photography Tour to explore a subject-rich destination.  I was rewarded with very interesting cultures with a prominent religious influence; Java is mostly Muslim and Bali mostly Hindu.  Spectacular landscapes included volcano craters and sulphur mines high in Eastern Java, as well as rice terrace fields in Bali.  I also enjoyed two traditional Balinese dance troupes.

Arizona Balloon Rides I have recently ascended above four different parts of Arizona in hot air balloons.  All the rides were very exciting and each had there own appeal.  I am sure I will do more soon.  Thanks to the pilots and fellow adventurers I was able to get some great shots of scenery and activity below.  Take a look in the new 'Arizona Balloon Rides' collection under Nature --> Landscapes.  Enjoy!

Amazonia Expedition What an adventure! Fifteen days on a river boat in the Amazon Basin, with 2-3 canoe or hike explorations daily.  I experienced very challenging photography conditions (high heat and humidity, canoe motion, dark forests) but I am very pleased with the new gallery.  Many thanks to the three trip leaders, five crew members, and nine fellow adventurers for making this a memorable and rewarding experience.  

View the gallery to see life along the river; also many birds, monkeys, and reptiles.  Go to Travel->South America -> "Amazonia Expedition" to see the full collection.

Myanmar Adventure Wow!  In late January, I participated in an adventurous "Myanmar - Tribes & Trekking" photo tour led by Nathan Horton Photography Tours.  The fourteen full days of exceptional travel photography opportunities was extremely rewarding (and exhausting).  Deemed a "research tour," we hiked from one tribal village to another, crossed the central lakes in a four-seat motorized canoe, rode in horse carts and river boats, floated over temples in a balloon, and took five domestic flights to reach our destinations.  We even spent an afternoon on electric motorbikes visiting temples and workshops.  The itinerary had it all: indigenous people, landscapes, architecture and more.  See the gallery: Travel > Asia > Myanmar

Photography Workshop "Creepy Crawly Critters" I attended my third Arizona Highways Photo Workshop last weekend, this one a full day of capturing images of critters of the desert.  Rattlesnakes, tarantulas, gila monsters, tree frogs and geckos.  The workshop leader was renowned Arizona photographer Bruce Taubert, assisted by animal wrangler Randy Babb.  Had a great time and learned a bunch about the critters.  Those who know me well are aware of my fascination with reptiles and amphibians. 

Check out the new gallery "AHPW Creepy, Crawly Critters".  Probably not for you if not a fan of snakes (like my sister, who has already been warned).
