The Wave of Sand

Posted 01.28.15 in New Photos Blog

The Vermillion Cliffs is easly one of my favorite locations in the entire world. To walk these lands at any time of the day is like walking in a dream. It's because of these places I feel more connected to the world around me. The Paria Canyon and Vermillion cliffs are remnants of the largest desert ever to evolve on the planet! Two hundred millions years ago, this desert stretched from central Wyoming to southern Nevada, rivaling the Sahara in size. These immense sand dunes accumulated over a period of 20 millions years. As the huge dunes shifted and moved in response to changing wind directions, tilted beds formed, and cross stratification occurred. Thus the wave and many other areas where formed...

The Wave is located on the Colorado Plateau, near the Utah and Arizona border. The area is a gallery of gruesomely twisted sandstone, resembling deformed pillars, cones, mushrooms and other odd creations. Deposits of iron claim some of the responsibility for the unique blending of color twisted in the rock, creating a dramatic rainbow of pastel yellows, pinks and reds.

Amnesia Photographed 2015

Posted 01.15.15 in New Photos Blog

This Photograph was taken under a Full moon known as the "Wolf Moon". January is the month of the full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. This was shot on one of the coldest nights in South Carolina on a deserted beach full of driftwood. These beaches are knows as a "Boneyards". Boneyard's are called this because of the bleach skeletons of oaks along the beach.  I am truly blessed to be able to make photographs like this! I hope you enjoy...

Beautiful stars, do keep your eyes on me!

Waves of Buttes Vermillion Cliffs

Posted 12.29.14 in New Photos Blog

Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness spanning the extreme South Central Utah and North Central Arizona. Swirled bands of color run through the petrified sandstone, which has eroded into interesting shapes. The colors and shapes change with the light as the day progresses. Red, pink and yellow rock has been blended together to form castles, beehives, chutes and other structures. Free your mind and your ass will follow!

Whispers in the Wind Lofoten Islands Norway

Posted 12.29.14 in New Photos Blog

The seaside wooden huts of the Lofoten Islands are called Rorbuer. They have are steeped in tradition, once housing scores of hardened fishermen who made the winter pilgrimage to the world’s most fertile cod fishing grounds. Fish are still the basis of all human settlement on Lofoten, but beginning in the 1960’s a number of the huts have been converted into accommodation for travelers. Visiting the Lofoten Islands and staying in a rorbu makes an already extraordinary experience even more distinctive.

Midnight Sheep of Lofoten Islands

Posted 12.29.14 in New Photos Blog

Spælsau Sheep  near the small village of Yttersand along the Lofoten Island coast. I started hiking along a bluff near the small village and these sheep seem to come out of nowhere. I started talking to the baby and he came to meet me. It was a beautiful moment under a midnight sun during an endless summer in Norway.
