There is an out of the ordinary Japanese Garden located on the property of the Tillman Water Reclamation Plant in Van Nuys, California. During a recent visit to the site, I spotted this Egyptian Goose roaming around. Apparently these birds are considered exotic and rare in North America. I captured the moment with my Fujifilm X-T20 camera.
One of Southern California's "secret" natural wonders is the Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area. It features incredible tilted sedimentary rock formations that were carved by water runoff from nearby mountains. The location is excellent for hiking, rock climbing, and photography! I shot this image in the early nineties on Fujichrome Velvia film.
This dramatic summit overlooks the Kawarau River, near Queenstown in New Zealand's southern island. The area is popular with adventure seekers; offering bungy jumping, jet boating, white water rafting, and of course great scenery. Photographed in 2005.
Once upon a time I hiked the enchanted Cataract Trail, located on Mount Tamalpais in Northern California. There I witnessed numerous waterfalls in the midst of a lush, intensely green rainforest. Photographed on Kodachrome film in 1993.
This view was from deep within the ravine of Bryce Canyon National Park. My camera was outfitted with a circular polarizing filter, which deepened the sky. Photographed in 1992 on Kodachrome film.
I once took a short trip to Zion National Park to shoot photos. This rock-strewn dry stream bed with colorful trees and mountain was an intriguing sight. Captured on Kodachrome film in 1992.
