Looking up through the Chimney of an Old Iron Ore Furnace. While hiking a trail in PA I discovered this old Iron Ore Furnace. It was used during the 1900s and has been left to erode itself into a pile of romantic rubble.
This photo has won an award for being in the top 20% in "The Best Images of the Month" category on Pixoto.com! I went out one day during the fall and I came across a few cool things to shoot. The vibrant red of these leaves could be clearly seen well before I came near this tree and provided for a very "fall-esque" photo.
While on a trip to Hawaii I was able to hike the Olomana Trail. This trail is on the island of Oahu. Here is a link for more information if you want to hike it yourself: Olomana Trail The hike was pretty strenuous! There were lots of vertical ascents and descents by rope which had been placed there for the trail or by rock scrambles. Honestly, I didn't trust the rope because I didn't know how often it was checked and maintained so I did as many rock scrambles as I could. But at some points you had to put all your weight on the rope and hope it didn't break because if it did, well, that would be the last of you my friend. Was it worth it? YES!!
Columns like these are all over the place at the Palace of Fine Arts, located in San Francisco.
While I was in Washington, DC I was able to take some great night images of a few of the iconic landmarks that make up this city! Here is an image of the Pacific pillar at the World War II Memorial!
This is a part of Bright Angel Trail leading into the Grand Canyon!
Two iconic symbols from the area of Yorktown, Virginia. The cannon and the Yorktown Onion. These plants and structures remind us of our history. From the settling of British Colonoies to the Revolutionary war, it's important to know our past. The Yorktown Onion is native to York County and likely introduced into the area in the colonial times from England. Seed exchange was common between the colony and the mother country.

I was on tour with MegaDeth during their 2012 "Countdown to Extinction" tour. We had a stop over in New Dehli, India and had a chance to see a few sights. The Taj Mahal being one of them! I'm not usually super impressed by buildings and such but this one takes the cake! It really is magnificent. This photo is one of the many thousands hand laid flower and vine motifs.
This image was taken near Cleveland & Rocky River Ohio. Providing direction for all the boats leaving & entering the Cleveland Yacht Club (CYC).
I took this photo while hiking the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. I did some research and I believe this tree is a "Bristlecone Pine", but don't quote me on that! If anyone has a better idea as to what type of tree this is please let me know.
A beautiful sunset off the coast of Lake Erie with a pier in the foreground. This image was captured in Cleveland Ohio, specifically near Edgewater Park.
A night photo of the Terminal Tower & Veterans Memorial Bridge. The building peaking in on the left is the BP-Huntington building and the building creeping in on the right is the Justice Center.
A view from the path on the John Muir Trail.
While on a trip to Hawaii I made a visit to Pearl Harbor on Oahu. This picture is of the Arizona Memorial. This memorial is built over the ship which came to it's final resting place after the attack on pearl harbor.
A photo of the Cleveland Skyline. From left to right the 3 tallest buildings are The BP-Huntington Building, The Terminal Tower and The Justice Center.
After we left Mowich Lake Campground, my buddy and I decided to take the Spray Park trail instead of the Wonderland Trail Proper. I read in Bette Filley's book, "Discovering The Wonders of the Wonderland Trail" that Spray Park offers some magnificent views of Rainier whereas the Wonderland Trail is more forested and covered. The only catch is that if it's bad weather, Spray Park is absolutely miserable as there is no cover and it's the highest point on the trail. Thankfully we lucked out and had blue skies and great views! Here is a black and white photo of the Spray Park Trail Landscape and cool sky, close to the Carbon River Campground.
On our hike of the Wonderland Trail we encountered this herd of goats just a short distance from the trail. We were on our way to Panhandle Gap.
This waterfall was a little bit off of the trail but we stopped here for a short rest before moving on with the hike. We we're fortunate to be able to stop beside such a beautiful site in nature!
This photo is from the summit of Mt. Whitney located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. While at the top I was fortunate enough to see these these clouds "sinking" past a mountain peak.
On our way to the Indian Bar campsite we crossed over the Panhandle Gap. This photo was taken a short distance after we crossed the gap.
