Balinese Fishermen Return From The Night At Sea

After a night fishing in the Bali Strait, the Balinese fishermen pull their fishing boats ashore and unload their catch. If you sit on a Balinese beach in the morning, you can watch the fishing boats, known as jukung, sail ashore. Upon arrival, families and friends haul the boats out of the water and unload the night’s catch. Although the catch was small on the day I visited, they seemed happy and were eager to show me their boats and their […]

Zebras At The Waterhole

In the Serengeti, Tanzania, I had the opportunity to watch a herd of zebras at a waterhole. With predators on land (lions and leopards) and in the water (crocodiles), zebras are a nervous bunch and are constantly on the move. There is safety in numbers so the zebras move together, sometimes as if they were choreographed.  As they darted back and forth from the waterhole, I sat there with a long lens and shot away. During the dry season, you […]

Balinese Fisherman

In the pitch black of 3 am, I headed offshore with a fisherman named Anom. We went straight out into the Pacific for two hours to put his nets down in the dark. It’s important that this is done before daylight so that the fish don’t see the nets. Just after sunrise, he hauled up his nets to bring in the day’s catch. He caught a few things that day, mostly mackerel, but barely enough to pay for his fuel. […]

Buy Japanese Prints, Profits To The Red Cross

Earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear disaster are the news out of Japan these days. As we watch the plight of the Japanese people in quiet desperation, I wanted to highlight the beauty of this inscrutable country by displaying some new images that I took years ago. I will be making a donation to the Japanese Red Cross and if you can help, I will donate all profits from the sale of Japanese prints to the Japanese Red Cross for the next […]

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.

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, […]
