An HDR image of the Vancouver skyline showing the new BC Place Stadium.  It was a clear and chilly night, the water was calm just long enough to get a good reflection.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Photo: Fall Colours in Vancouver

This scene was so full of colour it almost hurt my eyes :)  The fall leaves had fallen into the pond but some of the plants were still a lush green.  The HDR photo brought out the full dynamic range of the scene.

Scotland Cathedral

I only had one day to myself on my visit to Edinburgh, Scotland but I tried to make the most of it.  This is a photo of St Mary's Cathedral, an amazing structure.  I love old churches and cathedrals, even more so that we don't have any spectacular ones in Vancouver.

Hawaii Diving: Wreck of the Naked Lady

Photo: Wreck of the Naked Lady

Not all of my photos are above the water.  Since I'm an avid scuba diver, I also take photos under the water, like this shot of a sailboat off the coast of Maui, Hawaii.

Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

After a visit to the London Museum of Natural History in England, I certainly had to visit the Smithsonian while in Washington DC.  It certainly impressed, even if the building pales in comparison to the UK version.  Considering how popular this place is, I'm shocked I was able to get a wide angle photo with no people in the frame.

Thailand Resort at Sunset

A photo from the pool at the Amari Vogue Resort in Krabi Province, Thailand.  I was worried about dropping the camera in the pool, but managed to get the shot.  The sunsets in Thailand are some of the most stunning in the world.

Thailand Longboat on the beach

Thailand is an amazing country, I can't wait to go back one day. This boat was one of several that were on the beach in front of our hotel in Krabi province. The boats are very common in Thailand.

London Museum of Natural History

On a trip to London, England I decided to visit the London Museum of Natural History. The first thing that struck me was the building itself, an amazing structure inside and out. That type of thing you just don't see in the young city of Vancouver, BC. This is an HDR shot of the interior, the amount of detail in the structure is just fantastic.

Photo: St. David’s Church, Neath, Wales

Shot on a visit to Neath, Wales. This is St. David’s Church, which is beautiful inside and out. I literally had only a few seconds to set up for this shot as the pastor said that a service will be starting soon and people were starting to arrive.
