Arkadi Monastery, Crete, Greece

This is the church at the Monastery of Arkadi on the Greek island of Crete. A working Greek Orthodox monastery with a historic background, Arkadi is a popular site for tourists who visit Rethymnon and the surrounding area.

This shot is one of my earlier photos taken from my time spent living in Crete but it is still a favorite. I love how the pink geranium flowers frame the church... helping to give it a traditional rustic mediterranean feel.

Tuolumne, Mariposa, & Madera counties, California, USA

This photograph was taken in Yosemite National Park in California. The view is taken from the Tunnel View Road that goes from the meadow you may have entered the park by, and up to Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. It is an excellent look out point to see Half Dome and El Capitan all at once. I hope you get their first, as there is only a few parking spots at the look-out. The road is a one way, so you will not be able to drive back down to see the view again. Please be smart and adhere to regulations, and watch your step.

Trenton, New Jersey, USA

The state capitol of New Jersey is Trenton. It is a historic location, where a Revolutionary War battle was fought. The Trenton State House is adorned with a golden dome (added in 1845) that is the highlight of the city.

Because NJ has a reputation for having corrupt politicians, it is sometime referred to as "The Scene of the Crime". If you are a New Jersey taxpayer, you will know what I am describing!

Guthrie, Oklahoma, USA

If you love old architecture, you'll love visiting Guthrie, Ok. With it's old and ornate buildings, you'll feel transported into the past. Take a stroll in the downtown area, and pop into the many shops. A must-see is musician Byron Berline's Double Stop Fiddle Shop.In 1967, Byron joined the Bill Monroe band. Music lovers will love his large selection of unique, and vintage instruments. The building on postcard, while not as ornate as the downtown structures, has plenty of history.

British Columbia, Canada

Rustic old boathouse along the Inland Passage in British Columbia. The sparkling blue of the water with its backdrop of the deep green of the woodlands on the far shore make a picture perfect summer day for boat lovers. The wooden dock below the boathouse calls to us to spend more time on the water. The Inland Passageway of British Columbia - one of the most relaxing places in the world!

Sometimes that's all you want to do, just sit on a beach and do nothing! This picture was taken on an Egyptian beach (the name escapes me right now) in 2008 just before the holiday season before parents and kids take over the place. Very peaceful.

Blakeney Point, Norfolk, England

This photograph is of seals at Blakeney Point in Norfolk, England. There are two ways to see the seals, one is to pay for a charter, the other is to walk out to them along the shore. We walked, we prefer to go the route less traveled, it's more fun that way. The beach starts off rocky then goes to a soft fine sand. The seals are wonderful to watch. They will even spy on you to. Please keep your distance and respect wildlife.
