Orlando, FL – Kennedy Space Center – Rock It! (HDR)


If you are ever in Orlando, FL for vacation one great site to see is the Kennedy Space Center. I have been there a few times and love taking the tour. The shot above is from the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Awe inspiring place to visit. The Apollo and Saturn are great subjects for HDR! Enjoy!

Innsbruck, Austria – Blue Hour Downtown (HDR)


Innsbruck, Austria is a beautiful city surrounded by picturesque mountains. Very stunning and a super place to visit! I can see why they had the 1976 Winter Olympics here. I arrived one late afternoon and walked around the downtown area at nite. As you can see not many shops were open and it was quiet. A great time to take pics! The blue hour gives it a cool feel! I love the one train track that just stops and ends abruptly on the street. Cheers!

White Sands, NM – Infrared


One of the coolest spots in the US is White Sands in New Mexico. For those that have been there…it is other worldly. White dunes in the middle of nowhere. Kinda cool and kinda strange! With this in mind I add a planet and made the IR shot outta this world! Enjoy!

Yosemite National Park


One of my favorite places in the US…Yosemite. I would enjoy taking a vacation there for a week in the future just to explore the whole park! The day before a 10 inch snowfall arrived at the park. There is a lodge in the middle of the park…expensive, but how awesome would that be to stay there and wake up everyday knowing that this amazing place is right at your footsteps! Anyone ever stayed in the park? I’d love to hear your stories!
