Great Wall of China, tracing a path across the spines of the mountains. Spectacular place to visit.

Dover Castle
Dover Castle

A stout, strategic beauty of Norman construction, this castle was a pleasure to visit and photograph.

Them Arches

Sometimes the buildings housing the art were as beautiful as the art itself. London, UK.

Ely Cathedral
Ely Cathedral

I will never cease to be awed by cathedrals. That architecture can inspire a state of contemplative worship is truly magnificent.

The Great Wall of China. Amazing place.

The magical landscape around the town of Yangshuo in the Guangxi region of China is something to behold.

Untitled Reflection

An early photograph of mine that I find endlessly compelling, all these many years later.

Three Gorges Reservoir, China
Three Gorges Reservoir, China

I have mixed feelings about the massive Three Gorges Dam hydroelectric power station on the Yangtze River near Yichang, China. On the one hand, it is providing renewable, non-coal-burning power to a sizeable population in a country rife with unbelievable air pollution. On the other, it displaced over a million people, drowned historic towns, and greatly impacted the local environment. This is the price of progress.

Sailing the Point
Sailing the Point

A sailboat in the waters off Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver, BC, Canada. A great place for easy hiking and a picnic, if you find yourself nearby.

Fishing Boat Reflection
Fishing Boat Reflection

Fishing boat reflected in the waters of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, Canada, while my fisherman guide gutted our afternoon’s catch of cod. (I highly recommend staying at Harbour House, if you’re planning to visit. Lovely place, lovely hosts!)

Snow Crystals

Macro photography of snow crystals that grew in tiny towers.

Summer Grass
Summer Grass

Photographed with a lens I built myself, which was nicknamed the Monet Lens because of the effect it produced.

Dragonfly
Dragonfly

Photographed with a lens I built, nicknamed the Painting Lens. I’m still amazed this was in focus, as the dragonfly was still for only a mere second and my handbuilt lenses are quite difficult to focus.

Orange Beauty
Orange Beauty

Photographed with my handbuilt Painting Lens, aptly named for this particular effect.

Poppy

Photographed with my handbuilt Painting Lens, and showcasing it’s magnificent blur capabilities.

Yellow Multiples
Yellow Multiples

Photographed with a lens I built and nicknamed Aperture Contraption, or ApContrap for short. It’s main feature is interchangeable aperture discs - different effects are produced depending on the aperture hole(s). It’s maddeningly frustrating to use, but in a good way, if you know what I mean.

Dramatic Purple Astrantia

Ornamental Quince, Transformed

When your handmade lenses begin to fall apart, interesting things happen. The Monet Lens is living up to its namesake here, and kickstarting my journey into the abstract.

Buds in Spring

A windy lens testing afternoon, managed to catch this budding tree with one of my handmade lenses.

Juniper Berries

Photographed with the first lens I built, which used the lens elements from my first digital camera, a cardboard ribbon spool, and plenty of patience.
