Canyon de Chelly

Fuji Velvia, 250mm Zeiss lens, exposure unrecorded

Ayer Lake

Fuji Velvia, 50mm Zeiss lens, f/16 and 1/4 second.


Kodak Ektar 25, 50mm Zeiss lens, f/11 and 60 seconds. Nikon 8008 used to meter due to the darkness of the canyon.

This was taken at the bottom of a "slot" canyon on the Arizona/Utah border. The canyon is 40 meters deep but only 1-3 meters wide so that the sunlight must bounce off the walls multiple times before striking the bottom. As the walls are reddish sandstone, this accounts for the rather rich red color of the picture.


Kodak Gold 100, 120mm Zeiss Makro-Planar lens, f/16 and 1/15 second.

This was taken in a botanical garden near Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. Orchids are not native to Hawaii. See my "Flowers in Hawaii" exhibit for another 50 images.

Parco dei Mostri (Park of Monsters)

below the town of Bomarzo, Italy (1.5 hours north of Rome). This was the park of the 16th century Villa Orsini and is filled with grotesque sculptures. Fuji Velvia, Zeiss 50mm lens.

Moeraki Boulders

Fuji Velvia, Zeiss 50mm lens, f/11 and 1/4 second.

These unusual spherical boulders are off the coast of the South Island of New Zealand, between Christchurch and Dunedin. I stood in water about 1/2 meter deep with the camera on a tripod and periodically lifted the camera up out of the way of larger waves.

Rocky Gorge

Kodak Ektar 25, Zeiss 250mm lens, f/16 and 1/4 second.

Just off the Kamcamangus Highway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.


Fuji Velvia, Zeiss 50mm lens, f/22 and 2 seconds.

This stream, in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, was in deep shade. I corrected some of the colors with PhotoShop, brightened parts of the water, and burned in some highlights.

Yosemite Falls (lower)

Kodak Ektar 25, Schneider 80mm lens, f/16 and 4 seconds.

This photograph was taken about half an hour after sunset. The falls are almost 200 meters high and are the lower cascade of a waterfall that is about 1200 meters high.

White Mountain waterfall

Kodak Ektar 25, Zeiss 50mm lens, f/22 and 2 seconds.

This photograph was taken in deep shade during foliage season.
