Mt Bromo
Mt BromoOn the island of Java in Indonesia, Mt Bromo trembles beneath the earth's surface. This active volcano killed two people last time it erupted in 2005. Since 2015 the activity has been increasing, shown by the smoke rising from the crater. Here I captured it at sunrise.
Atuh Beach
Atuh BeachGetting to Atuh Beach in Nusa Penida is quite the trek. I wrecked my moped on the way, but I picked it up and kept driving. I only got a bit scratched up, no major injuries. It was worth the drive and the wreck once I got there. Down a steep flight of stairs is a beautiful beach with food options and lounge chairs, as well as this beautiful arch. 
Borobudur Temple
Borobudur TempleBorobudur Temple in Yogyakarta Indonesia is an ancient and iconic Buddhist temple. It contains dozens of stone bells with Buddha's sitting within them. There is one there that is missing a top which displays the meditating Buddha.
Petronas Twin Towers
Petronas Twin TowersThe most iconic piece of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the Petronas Twin Towers.
Purakaunui Falls
Purakaunui FallsThe Purakaunui Falls are a wonder of The Catlins in Southern New Zealand. It is also the most photographed waterfall in New Zealand, so this is my attempt to capture my memory of it.
The Queenstown Tree
The Queenstown TreeNorth of Queenstown there is a famous tree called "The Wanaka Tree". It is the most photographed tree in New Zealand. I found it underwhelming, and went searching for my own.  I followed the path, searching for subjects, until I found this gem. 
Waterfall at Tunnel Beach

Sunshine On The Pier
Sunshine On The PierI got this shot just as the sun went down and spread its golden light over the New Brighton Pier in Christchurch, New Zealand. The bridge was undergoing repairs due to the devastating earthquakes of 2011.
Tunnel Beach
Tunnel BeachA haven outside of Dunedin, this beautiful wonder seems to pop out of nowhere. After parking in the nearby car park, I walked down the forty-five degree path to this beach, wondering if I would ever get back up. The hike was worth it, as I found so many compositions in this small area. 
Queenstown Dock
Queenstown DockMy walks around Queenstown provided a tranquil time of thought and meditation. This was one of my favorite places to sit and wonder.
Waipohatu Falls
Waipohatu FallsDeep in the Catlins jungle, at the south-eastern tip of New Zealand, lies this hidden gem. Waipohatu is not the easiest waterfall to get to in New Zealand. You will be wet and muddy by the time you make it out the other side, but every steep step will be worth it.
Nugget Point Lighthouse
Nugget Point LighthouseThe famous stone nuggets, overlooked by an old lighthouse with many stories to tell. Getting this photo was one of the closest encounters I've ever had with death, as I had to climb up a thin, slippery "path" in the dark with a sheer fatal drop on one side and a long, painful fall on the other.
Pukaki Watchman

Hillview Pasture
Hillview PastureThe rolling green pastures of New Zealand are nestled between sharp, snow-capped mountains and the the rough, blue sea. The landscape in the small country changes drastically over such little distance.
Blue Boulders
Blue BouldersI waited through the rain and cold wind, hoping for a sunset shot with these strange cracked eggs called the Moeraki Boulders, but it never came. But this made the blue sky last quite a while, and I was able to get an image.
Bushy Beach
Bushy BeachI came to this beach the first evening to get a photo at sunset. There were about 50 people crowded along the observation deck, waiting to see penguins come in from the sea. We saw 2 fur seals, but no penguins. One by one the others left. As the sun went down I realized I probably wouldn't get the shot I wanted, but still I waited, because patience had paid off for me many times before. The sun was almost completely hidden behind the cliffs by the time the last group left, wishing me luck as they went. About 15 seconds after they walked away, a Yellow-Eyed Penguin strutted onto the beach. He stood there, looking at me, as if to say "Patience pays," for only a couple of minutes before walking back into the bush. I had to go back the next morning for sunrise to get this shot.

Curio Bay
Curio BaySunrise at Curio Bay in The Catlins. Curio Bay is an ancient petrified forest, about 180 million years old! If you look closely at the rocky floor you can make out the shapes of tree trunks, branches, and leaves. After I captured this image I was packing up my gear when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. It looked like a large bird jumping up and down. I walked closer to check it out and saw a penguin waddle across the rocks and jump into the sea to look for its breakfast.
Lake Te Anau
Lake Te AnauA cozy place to stay to cut down the drive time to Milford Sound, Te Anau is a quaint and quiet town where lazy strolls are the only thing on one's mind.
