This is a view one sees in variations through out the island of Tikehau
We sat every evening on the porch at dusk and watched this soul soothing view of Ta’aha
I can’t explain the light in this photograph. I took this image at 11:30 AM. It stands alon
The density of the water looked and felt like gold jello. I have never experienced anything like it on my visits to over sixty islands world wide.I never looked away until we touched the shore of our remote resort
I took this aerial image while flying over one of the many islands in Fiji. Eerie and startling and oddly beautiful.
Walking toward a lake that has no clarity in the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world, in Northern Chile. The density of minerals in the lake makes it appear as though someone spilled a can of cobalt blue paint into the desert
It’s no surprise that Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile was recently voted The Eighth Wonder Of The World. It’s the most unspoiled park I have ever enoucntered in the 108 countries I’ve visited. Yosemite National Park in the US has an average of four millions visitors a year. Torres has 150,000. You feel like you’re breathing for the first time.
Cuba – 1999
American visitors to Cuba continue to be rare. I saw sights few people have seen on the island. Here are a few images:
The buildings on the waterfront in Havana are painted bright colors reminding one of wedding cakes. Deep pastels keep the people’s spirits up.
Because comforts are rare, the family in Cuba is even more the core of their existence.
Cars driving on the flooded waterfront on a stormy night.
An eighteenth century fortress still stands watch.
“In southern Chile I photographed these Cuevas del Miladon (Caves of the Miladon). They are named Miladon because in 1895 when they discovered the caves they found the remains of some Miladons, prehistoric giant sloths which were larger than bears. They became extinct 13,000 years ago. Human remains there date to 6000 B.C. It reminds us of how minuscule we are in nature.”
