After leaving the Dolomite Mountains, we headed to our final destination before departing Italy - Venice!  I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Venice!  I just knew I would love all the colors, masks, pigeons :-), gondolas and waterways.  It did not disappoint!  We arrived at sunset on the first day and spent the rest of the night walking around the old city.  All the small alleyways and canals added to the mystery and intrigue of the place.  It was like stepping back into Victorian times ... simply breathtaking!

After leaving Tuscany, we continued north to the Dolomite Mountains.  Their beauty was immense and staggering beyond words!  We loved everything about this region.  From our amazing hotel, to the shear grandeur of the peaks surrounding us, to the melodic sounds of cow bells ringing across open meadows, to the crisp autumn air, this was the kind of place that fills your soul with peace ... it was magical!  On our last night, we took a chairlift to the top of the mountain and hiked back down into town at sunset.  Along the way, we encountered a really sweet cow (I named her Bessy - original I know :-)) who joined us on our walk.  She was so sweet she even licked me ... I have never been licked by a cow :-).  We just loved this place!

After we left Rome, we drove north into Tuscany.  We spent a couple of days exploring the Chianti region.  Before we left, I had seen a photo in our guide book of a cart filled with old chianti flasks and decided I had to find it and photograph it myself.  Kevin said there was no way I would find that cart and I have to admit that I wasn't too confident I would either.  We didn't plan on exact places to stay on this part of the trip, instead opting to just find somewhere along the way.  We found a really charming B&B in an old hamlet for our overnight stay and what do you think was sitting right in front of me ... that exact cart I had seen in the guide book!!  I was so happy and proud of myself ... though I guess a little luck didn't hurt :-)!

10-10-11 Travel Photography Italy Rome00.jpg

A couple of weeks ago we headed over to Italy for a wedding / vacation!  Our first stop was Rome, where the wedding took place.  We spent three days there, most of which was related to the wedding, so we only had a small bit of time to take personal photos.  We did however, have time on the last evening to go to the Ancient City and the Colosseum, which were spectacular!  It is really humbling to stand in the shadow of an ancient world rich in so much history!

8-10-10 Nature Photography Hawaii Big Island 00.jpg

 

This past August we went to the Big Island of Hawaii to photograph two weddings.  After we were done, we spent two weeks exploring this very large Island ... by Hawaii standards anyways.  What we found was an Island ripe with rugged beauty; active volcanoes giving birth to new land dotted with high, cold mountains harboring glimpses of the heavens and stars so close you feel as though you can almost touch them; oh, and then there are the secret lagoons and isolated beaches full of sea turtles ... plenty and plenty and plenty of sea turtles ... we love sea turtles :-)!  Below is a record of our journey through the images we took!
