This post will encompass a couple of days as we didn't have internet at the lodge for 2 days. After this, I won't be able to post until the end of my trip when I'm at Victoria Falls.

Yesterday began like any other morning and believe it or not I finally got some sleep....

I didn't think anything could top yesterday, but boy was I wrong. Again, my bewitching hour seems to be 2:30 am however, I did sleep until I got a phone call at that time. Not quite sure how that happened as I was on airplane mode. I fiddled around until 4:30 when I go...

Though I have a real job, that takes up the majority of my life, I am trying more to get out and shoot.  A while back I decided to focus my photographs on landscape, nature and animals.  I have decided to add a new location to my photography bucket list.  Though it's 3...

In 20 days I'll be heading back to Alaska.  I was there 2 years ago and fell in love.  It was a place I had dreamed of visiting most of my life and my 50th birthday made it seem all that more special.


The last time I was there was at the end of August be...
