Snow Show

It just keeps falling … Record amounts of snow are accumulating up on Mount Washington this year.  La Niña may be the cause, but whatever it is the mid-mountain snow base at time of writing is 699cm. Whoa. You can view my gallery of images here. If you look carefully at some of the photos, you will see that there are actually cars and houses under all that white stuff. Hope you like the show.

Japan's Tragedy

It is sad to witness, albeit remotely, the pain and loss due to the tragic events in Japan. My heart goes out to the survivors who have to grapple with shattered lives and total uncertainty. I have actually held off blogging for several days because it seemed odd to be talking about relatively trivial matters when such a horrible event was unfolding. As a personal note, a friend of mine, Kai, who lives in Canada, told me that his entire […]

After Dark Invitational

The event went off last Saturday night under snowy conditions. But then again, that has been the big story of Mount Washington this year — snow, snow and still more snow. The mid-mountain snow base at time of writing is 595 cm. Wow. Click here for gallery images. Falling snow can make flash photography tricky, but overall the camera captured some sweet acrobatics in the air. Dramatic would best describe this event, as these guys (and one woman competitor) book […]

Balinese Motorcycles

In Bali, the motorcycle is the preferred mode of transport. Unlike in the West, where motorcycles are in the minority compared to cars, it is the exact inverse in Bali. City motorcycle traffic verges somewhere between 80 and 90 percent of the traffic volume. Watching them go by is like watching some crazy dance of machines as they weave to and fro. Many riders do not wear helmets and even if they do, oftentimes they aren’t done up. You will also […]

Bali By Night

On a recent trip to Bali, I took this shot at night. I love the colors against the black night. And it will look good on just about any wall. The first person who comes close to guessing the scene and how this shot was taken will win an 8 x 10 print of this image. Let your imagination run wild. I’ll let you know who the winner is in one week. You can either email me via the website, […]

Big Snow

With an awesome powder dump on Mount Washington, a group of talented riders and yours truly hit the steep slopes under cobalt blue skies. We did some dreamy glade runs, some kickers and dropped some mid-size cliffs. The series of images ends with Olaf Larsen throwing down some big air over the old copper mine on the backside of Mount Washington. There were some stellar moments. I hope you agree. You can connect to the gallery here. Bye for now. […]

Ethiopian Bull Jumping Ceremony

In 2006, I traveled to the Omo River Valley in southwestern Ethiopia to witness the Bull Jumping Ceremony of the Hamer tribe. The ceremony is a coming-of-age ritual for young men that involves the initiate running across the backs of bulls that are held loosely in place by supporting tribesmen. The task is a difficult one with high stakes — success brings adulthood with all of its privileges and responsibilities, while failure could mean a life of poverty with a lesser chance of marriage. […]
