Cold, crisp ice melts on top of the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia, Argentina. Such a magical location. Hiking on top of the glacier was an incredible experience.
I was just about to give up on this shot when a young girl ran in front of my lens making an average sunset shot much more magical.Canon 5DMK3 + 16-35mm, 1/250 at f/8.0, ISO 200.
Sunlight flares through an incredible Banyan Tree discovered on a winding trail on the South-East tip of Maui.Canon 5DMK3+16-35mm, 1/200 at f/4.0, ISO 400
This is probably the most dangerous photo I've ever taken. I was perched on the side of a sheer cliff, my tripod barely gripping the side of the ledge. I have no fear of heights, but a strong fear of my beloved camera tumbling to the rocky depths below. Thankfully there was no wind and I kept an iron grip on my tripod, so no such sad camera tumbling occurred. I think it was worth a bit of danger to capture this shot :)

After a torrential downpour in Kapalua, Maui, the sun came out...
Flower girl Valerie. Snapped some portraits of the Ukrainian-born beauty in Central Park the other day. I'm getting back to my Portrait photography roots again.

Majestic west coast sunset at Battery Point lighthouse in Crescent City, California. Canon 5DMK3 + 70-200mm f/2.8L, 1/200 @ f/8.0, ISO 400.
Birds swoop & dance over the Scottish coastline and St. Andrews Castle (while I freeeeeeze).
It’s always been a dream of mine to shoot the Santa Monica pier after seeing it in a number of movies/tv shows, so last night I trekked out onto the sandy beach and snapped this shot. This shot was all about persistence. Full Story on my blog.
5DMKII, 85mm f/1.8, 1/200 @ f/2.8, ISO 100.Experimental back lighting with a bare strobe (580EX) 1/16 power directly behind Kara slightly to the right. Played with different camera positioning to get the lens flare. To balance the light on her face, I placed a 430EX directly in front of her about 2 ft away & diffused the light through an umbrella.
On the left, gorgeous Aussie model Francisza taking a dip in the pool. On the right, a tilt-shifted view of the beach side city, Surfer's Paradise from the Q1 tower.Both taken with the Canon Xti (400D)+50 f/1.4 lens. The tilt-shift was made in Photoshop by adding a duplicate background layer, adding a gaussian blur, then a mask, and painting out the area I wanted to look miniaturized.
Lovely Kylee. Strobist Info: 430ex with a 1/4 CTO gel shot through a 52 inch umbrella at 1/4 power triggered using a pocket wizard with the Canon 85mm f/1.8.

The Pends in front of St. Andrews Cathedral on a very chilly -4°C night in Scotland. Canon 5DMK3+16-35mm, 5s, f/5.6, ISO 200.
It was snowing/sleeting quite heavily when I took this photo. I forgot to pack my lens hood on this trip, so I had to DIY one out of business cards and duct tape (never leave home without it!). Even with this extremely solid contraption I was still getting water drops all over my lens, so I had to continually go into coffee shops to wipe my lens off, resulting in an extreme caffeine overload :P I stood in this spot for about 30 minutes waiting for the right car to pass by... It's definitely a waiting game to get great light trails.
Sunset over Manhattan.
