Storm Clouds, South Park, Colorado

Storm Clouds, South Park, Colorado

South Park, Colorado is real and it’s wonderful! No, it’s not the quirky two-dimensional town you see in the Comedy Central TV show. Instead it’s a high valley, covering 1,000 square miles of grassland, and situated between the Front Range and the Mosquito Range in central Colorado. It’s here that you can often find some of the most incredible contrasts between grassy planes, mountains, and Colorado’s spectacularly changing weather.

Dusk on the Beach, Maldives

Dusk on the Beach, Maldives

We were fortunate enough to be able to take a trip to the Maldives over Thanksgiving, 2018. While our trip was actually for scuba diving, I took advantage of my time on the surface to get a few photos. This one came from a small private island that was a popular spot for dive liveaboards to use for evening shore excursions. As far as I can tell, the place doesn’t have much of a name.

Lower Antelope Canyon II, Page, Arizona

Lower Antelope Canyon II, Page, Arizona

I wrote in the past about my 2011 visit to Page, Arizona to visit the famed slot canyons. These are among the most beautiful spots in the American southwest, and I enjoyed every minute of our trip. This photo was taken one day after the one I shared before, this time in nearby Lower Antelope Canyon. Like the previous day, the weather was still dreary, but that didn’t stop me from finding some great shots.

Banded Shrimp, Turneffe Atoll, Belize

Banded Shrimp, Turneffe Atoll, Belize

I’ve mentioned in some of my posts that I love scuba diving, but I haven’t shared all that much of my underwater photos or videos (although you should check out my seal video). Truth be told, underwater photography is truly¬†hard and my results are a little hit and miss. I’m not even sure I actually like doing underwater photos, although I love it when I get good results. I plan to write more about my scuba photos in the future, but today let’s take a took at these banded shrimp (stenopus hispidus) living inside a sponge on Belize’s magnificent Turneffe Atoll.

This photo is a companion to a previous photo of a Venice Beach sunset I took in 2019. Both photos show Venice’s iconic lifeguard stations on the same evening, although I took this one of a different hut later towards twilight.
