Wanderlust is contagious, thanks to envy-inducing travel photography, .
Kissed by a Gator
The American Alligator (Alligator Mississippiensis) is my favorite wildlife subject. Many of my friends call me Gator Bait because I do things they think is crazy and will one day actually turn me into gator bait. Like in the below photograph when I crawl close to an alligator for a photograph (resulting photograph is the one above). A gator will typically hiss or outright take off into the water if it feels you are too close. When they do hiss at me (every gator is different in how close it will allow you to approach) I back off and respect their uneasiness.
The First Leg
I had the perfect name for this week’s letter blog. I thought of it while we were traveling. You’d better write it down, I told myself. Nah, I’ll remember it, myself told me. Did I — do I remember it? NO! It’s gone! Just gone! Right out of my head. I’ve thought of lots of names since then but none of them as perfect as that one was. In light of that, we shall continue and call this one The First Leg.
Best photo spots in the hill country of Sri Lanka
A trip to Sri Lanka would not be complete without a visit to its hill country. The mountainous region offers a breath of fresh air to the contemporary metropolis of Colombo. It is a must-see place for all you nature lovers and adventure seekers alike, which is guaranteed to leave an impression on your heart (and your memory card)!

Deer Diddly Squat
It was an early winter morning, I had decided to venture through Cade’s Cove in Tennessee for my Landscape Photography class assignment. It’s a huge park in the Smoky Mountains, and I wanted to get some images of the wildlife while I was there. Since it’s about 4 hours from where I live, I decided the night before that I would just stay awake and pull an all nighter to make sure I would leave on time, so that way I could get there as the park opened at sunrise. Ideally, I should have gotten a cheap room in the area or camped out the night before, but I planned this trip fairly last minute.
A Break in the Clouds
He looked right through me, and it took eight weeks to look back. I had just started my Euro trip with two of my best friends, before we would part ways in England and I would continue solo. Having graduated university a year earlier, I was ready to take the jump, but nervous about my ambitious plan. No one knew that part; I would never have admitted it out loud anyways because it giving fear airplay makes it real.
Life And Death on Canada's West Coast
There’s nothing beyond here This is where Canada's West Coast runs out, the land finally faltering and fragmenting into a thousand rocky islands. There's nothing between here and Asia except a wild and shifting sea that brings fogs and storms and occasionally the wreckage of ships to the rocky shore.
Mid-October is magical in Cherokee, located in the far western tip of North Carolina. The days dawn with cool crisp air that lead to warm afternoons and evenings that are best spent beside a fire pit. Shades of burnt orange, fiery red, brown and green overwhelm every mountain view as the leaves do their annual colorful transformation.
I watched with bated breath; my shoes heavy with sand. A light breeze occasionally interrupting the otherwise silent and still landscape, and I delighted that it was still warm enough to wear a singlet without shivering. I crouched down low in the sand, eyes scanning along the shore of the body of water that was framed lightly by foliage and spindly young eucalypts, all the while taking note of how quiet this morning was. I had not heard any yips or howls this morning, giving me a feeling that maybe this morning was not going to be what I had hoped it would be. I shifted, swapping which knee was going to be my tripod if the time came, still holding my camera tightly in anticipation of their arrival.
hawaiian monk seal!
Here is a once in a lifetime picture of an extinct Hawaiian monk seal and her baby resting on the beach of Kamiana in Hawaii. This picture obviously was not taken with a fancy camera, simply on my Iphone and does not do justice, but like I said was a ONCE IN A LIFETIME experience. This was taken on my FIRST TIME EVER trip to Hawaii, May of 2021. (THIS YEAR). Once I heard the news of Hawaii’s local monk seal giving birth just a few days before I arrived, I knew I had to witness this myself. Of course, the mother and pup where safely blocked off from tourists like me!! After this experience I knew I wanted to learn more!!!!
Bird Eye Shot
During our vacation in 2016 t0 one of our favourite campgrounds by Radium BC there is a log road you can turn down the brings you to the most beautiful natural Hot Springs you’ll ever be too. There are 3 different pools ,all different temperatures as it gets closer to the river. There is no light pollution there since it is so far into the bush and stargazing well soaking in the hot springs is just an awesome experience.
