North Ave Boats at Sunrise September 02, 2014 | Chicago, IL

This is the photogenic North Ave. Beach at sunrise. I think it's safe to say that North Ave. Beach is my favorite photo spot in Chicago. In addition to the interesting juxtaposition created between the relaxing beach and busy skyscrapers, I always seem to find something unique and photogenic on the beach's shore.

I'm Back June 03, 2014 | Chicago, IL

After taking a long hiatus, I am finally back to taking pictures. It's been a few weeks since my last post, and I think I have posted the last Iceland photo for a while anyway. This shot is from about a week ago as I caught the sunrise at North Ave Beach.

From Inside the Glacier March 14, 2014 | Jokulsarlon, Iceland

This was taken from inside a glacier on the Jokulsarlon ice beach. It was a little tricky to get this shot just right as I had to take the camera off of the tripod and rest it on the ice. After a lot of trial and error I came up with this shot.

Iceland in Motion February 24, 2014 | Vesturhorn, Iceland

This is another shot from Vesturhorn, Iceland. The light was perfect during this sunset and the clouds formed perfectly on top of this already photogenic mountain top.

Fossahola February 19, 2014 | Fossahola, Iceland

This is a waterfall off the beaten path called Fossahola. I haven't been able to find any other photos or information online about it. This was one of the nicer things about having a tour guide who is familiar with the area and was able to come up with places nearby when the lighting was just right.

Fossahola, a hidden gem only known by our tour guide, Tony. Can you spot the other photogs from my tour in this photo?View Exif Information

Sunrise through the Iceberg February 18, 2014 | Jokulsarlon, Iceland

This image was actually quite challenging to produce. Since I was shooting straight into the sun, I had to blend together multiple exposures to minimize over-exposed highlights and under-exposed shadows. While it didn't come out perfectly I think what I made out of this shot is pretty cool. This is Iceland's famous Ice Beach.

Icelandic Horse February 12, 2014 | Fossahola, Iceland

My photography tour of Iceland would not have been complete without capturing the native horse. Taking a break from the majestic landscapes made for a great change of pace on our last day of the tour. These guys were super friendly and loved having their heads scratched. I was sitting down shooting up at one point, and one of these guys started chewing on my foot. I think he was just trying to get my attention for a much needed head scratch.
