Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Stride down the Canal Grande like Venetian aristocracy as your gondolier shows you the beauty of palaces like Palazzo Babarigo adorned with Murano glass mosaic, before entering the labyrinthine backwaters of the city. Hop off on street level and...

Oregon, USA
I'm always impressed by sunsets that I rarely take the time to wait for the moon to rise. I'm happy I waited this time! Here's a picture of an almost full moon rising over Crater Lake on July 5th. This was taken near Watchman Tower (the trail to...

Gorges du Todgha, Tinghir, Morocco
Todra Gorge takes a while to get to but is well worth the journey. If you have time, stay the night, wait for the moon to come up as the sun goes down and see the gorgeous colours of the red-hued cliffs across the remains of the day.

San Pedro de Atacama, Antofagasta Region, Chile
San Pedro de Atacama is located on the northern end of the Chilean salt flats. The landscape is a mix of ragged mountains and barren desert, resembling what I picture the surface of the moon to look like. At night you can take a ride out to the...
