Desolation in Black and White

5 Photos in This Gallery These scenes were photographed on a flight from Houston to Los Cabos, Mexico.  The desolation of the area is extreme.  Due to haze and the shallow camera angle required when shooting from a commercial jet, black and white produces the best results.

Finding Maui

World Cup Sunset

World Cup Sunset

You can start anywhere to find Maui, but my story starts at LAX before crossing 2600 miles of the Pacific Ocean to land on this island paradise in time to watch the sunset from Kihei beach.  These are all new photographs, captured yesterday.

Fiji is the Sky

Fiji is all about the sky. First one must spend many hours in the sky to get there from nearly anywhere except Australia. Those flights yielded some wonderful sunsets in the clouds. Travel between the islands is by light aircraft so I captured landscapes from the sky. On the ground or the sea clouds form in a most beautiful way. I did some of the best scuba diving ever there, but I don’t shoot under water. The dive guides are seated facing the camera in the group of Fijians.

After a stop in Honolulu and changing planes in Guam, we landed in Fiji and were picked up at the airport in Nadi for a three hour drive to our hotel.  After a few days there we returned to Nadi and flew to the remote island of Taveuni for another week of diving.   To get home we had to reverse the process.  The tickets were a steal at $1,100.  I don’t think I could get there for twice the price today.
