Digha & Tajpur

Digha and Tajpur are two sea-side towns along the southern coast of West Bengal, the eastern state of India. The best time to visit is between October and February. Both the places survive primarily on tourism and there is no restriction to photography.

Annat Salt Marshes

On the right day, the sunrise strikes the slanted bowl that is the peak of Beinn Alligin. The first sunlight of the day makes the slopes burn a reddish/pinkish hue. The photograph was taken in an unnaturally mild February; usually at that time of year there would be a dusting…

London Underground

Explore the different lines. They each have their own character. The architecture is sometimes distinguished and the signage is of course iconic. Compare the main photo’s 1940s restraint (St John’s Wood, a grade II listed station) with the second photo’s ‘in-your-face’ brutalism (Westminster). The third photograph leaves you in no…

Salt Marshes at Seilebost

The Isle of Harris, with some exceptions, is a sunset rather than sunrise location. The winds on the isle can be fierce, so a good, firm tripod is essential, and fitting spikes to the legs is probably a good idea. This shot was taken at about 8pm in May: 70mm,…

The Lower Antelope Canyon

If you are taking a tour of the lower antelope canyon I highly recommend bringing sturdy tripod, a variety of lenses, and taking your time while on the photography tour. The extended tour as a photographer with a tripod and ILC body is totally worth the cost for a number…

City of Istanbul

While Istanbul is known for many famous¬†sights, I was drawn to capture some of the non-iconic sights found through the city. Aside from the items found in every travel guide, the city itself had textures, colors, and graffiti that I hadn’t seen before. The above image was a locked door…

Cheonggyecheon

Cheonggye stream (Cheonggyecheon) is a revitalized stream/river that was once paved over during the rapid development of Seoul after the Korean War. After relocating the multiple merchants who have previously occupied the space, the area was restored to offer an escape from the bustle of city life for the citizens…

Baltimore Inner Harbor

The Inner Harbor in Baltimore is the revamped family friendly corner of Charm City. The area offers a world class aquarium, restaurants and an incredible view. The top image was captured at dusk mid-summer just as the street/building lights were turning on. The area it was captured did not allow…

Southern Jeju Island

Just at the corner of Jungmun there is Cheonjeyeon Falls, a beautiful park with three sets of waterfalls with each location accessible by paved trails. The trails themselves can get crowded during peak hours but there is room at nearly all of the waterfalls to set up even a large…

Oak Creek Canyon

The marked trail is a 6.4 mile round trip hike (3.2 miles each direction). The trail is a gorgeous walk through forests, broken up by crossing shallow mountain streams, and spotting occasional wildlife. While the entire walk is easy if you carry just a small bag with water/food, due to…
