It has been my good fortune to travel and photograph some beautiful places. I will take you to four places this month: Wisconsin USA, Singapore, Thailand, and Nepal.
I was raised in Northern Wisconsin and have enjoyed the beauty of it's out of the way places. It is a harsh land and desolate in many places, but also pure, fresh and beautiful with good friends and good clean air...
Singapore is in many ways the antithesis of Northern Wisconsin. It is a big city crowded onto a small tropical island, a sort of urban utopia: clean, safe, well planned. Singapore is spectacular.
Thailand has beautiful islands and oceans, cool highlands, a complex mixture of ancient and modern cultures, and the best food in the world.
Nepal is where I lived for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the 1970's. The people, places, and event I experience there are a cherished part of me.
The 5 images in this collection will be available until April 30, 2014 when they will be retired.
Northern Wisconsin is where I was raised and I've always had a love for it's forests and Lakes. This image was taken at sunset while canoeing. The early summer sun is still shining the last rays through the Tamarac Bog. This image prints best as a canvas print at 16" x 20" or on quality photo paper at 8" x 10".
My son and daughter-in-law live in Singapore. While visiting them we took a stroll through "The Gardens By The Bay". On our return from the gardens, the city lights and the Eye of Singapore were spectacular. This image prints best at 24" x 16" on canvas or 8" x 12" as a metallic print.
Thailand is my winter home now and I have come to love it's highlands, cities, and oceans. This image was taken with a 14mm lens and processed to make a painting like image, it is a personal favorite. This image prints best at 8" x 12" on quality paper or as a 16" x 24" canvas print.
I was very lucky to have been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nepal from 1974 to 1977. Since then I have been to Nepal many times: gone trekking in the mountains, traveling the country side, and visiting friends. Pokhara is my favorite city in Nepal. It is very close (12 miles as the crow flies) to the Himalaya (really big mountains: the abode of the Gods) and also one of the few places in Nepal with a lake, Phewa Taal. Here is an image taken on a flight from Pokhara to Jomsom, Nepal. The mountain on the left is Annapurna South (7219 m or 23,684') and the one on the right is Fang (7647m or 25,089').
This image prints well on canvas at 30" x 20" or at 10" x 8" on quality photographic paper.
The last image is of the Night Sky as seen from deep with in the northwoods of Northern Minnesota. The Milky Way was spectacular that July evening.
This image prints well on canvas at 16" x 24" or on quality photographic paper at 8" x 12".
