“Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music”. - Ronald Reagan I must admit, I have a tiny bit of an obsession with sunsets and clouds, especially over any body of water or mountains. Being outside in nature and marveling at her unquestionable beauty always brings me piece of mind and reminds me how life is grand. On my 42nd Birthday (where on earth did the time go?) I celebrate some of my most sensational photos of Mother Nature […]
I found some remaining pictures from my recent visit to the Sonoran desert of Arizona. Every night, the sunsets are magical and unique. It is my most favorite time of day and so insanely peaceful that all my worries seem to fade away with each brilliant ray of light and color splashed across the sky. “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science”. – Albert Einstein “When you […]
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.” – Helen Keller To me, light means hope and optimism. Positive energy that surrounds our soul and lifts our spirits. There is no other activist, writer and lecturer who has inspired me more when it comes to seeing the light than Helen Keller (1880-1968). As a blind woman whose eyes only saw darkness, the light from her strength, courage and soul out shown her blindness and enabled her […]

Last May I had the honor of traveling to India for the second time within a three year time span and was delighted by the unexpected views from the street. Anyone who has ever been to India knows what I am saying when I attest there is no place quite like it on earth. A massive sea of humanity lies within its many cities and streets for those who are willing to unravel it and take it all in, of […]

Perhaps one of the most spectacular marvels of Mother Nature I’ve ever witnessed is the majestic Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina. Spanning an area of 250 square kilometers/97 square miles and 30 km/19 miles in length, the sheer magnitude of this massive piece of layered ice is incomprehensible. Ice trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier was one of my highlights to a trip to Southern Patagonia in 2009. Take a peak for yourself and see the immense beauty and power of Argentina’s premier […]

I am a fighter. I am strong. I have the courage and strength to climb many mountains beyond. All photos taken along the Annapurna Trek in Nepal. November 2010.
Some days I find that photography has a way of speaking to me more than words can say. Today happens to be one of those days. Perhaps it is the imminent change in seasons that is rapidly approaching. Soon all the color will be gone and the landscape will be barren and brown. Yet then the first snowfall will come our way and blanket our world in a million sparkling diamonds of joy. “Live out of your imagination, not your […]
As much as I loved visiting China two year ago, there is one thing about China that still drove me mad. The horrifying, dense layer of suffocating pollution that cripples most of the major Chinese cities. China continues to have a major problem with pollution and not only does it look horrible it is bad for its people. Per a recent report in the New York Times, “Outdoor air pollution contributed to 1.2 million premature deaths in China in 2010, nearly 40 percent of the […]

In honor of our fading fall colors and Halloween, I thought I’d put together a post honoring all the beautiful orange colors I’ve seen around the world. Often I’m tempted to take pictures of blue and green hues as I love capturing landscapes. But what about orange? Orange can be quite a lovely, warm color and can also be sometimes found in the most unexpected places. Here is a look at some of the fabulous orange hues I’ve seen through […]
“My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been”. - Diane Arbus Among one of the most unearthly beautiful places in the world lies the dramatic, stark landscape of Iceland. Known as “the land of fire and ice”, Iceland has by far been one of the most spectacular places I have ever experienced. For you don’t simply visit Iceland; you experience it.
