Supertrees

The surreal Supertree Grove in Singapore’s Garden by the Bay comes to life at night and gives a new, jaw-dropping meaning, to vertical garden.

Beng Mealea Temple

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Unlike many of the other Angkor temples, Beng Mealea (said to be the “blue-print” for Angkor Wat) has not been fortified or rehabilitated. This means getting in and around this, nearly one thousand year old temple, is a hands on activity. Piles of stone rubble litter the courtyard and lie haphazardly throughout the site. Vegetation runs amok! Gorgeous mosses cover large swaths of stone, and tiny saplings popping up from minuscule cracks, have turned into full-grown trees winding their way around and through the ancient ruins.

This beautiful wooden bridge with a roof and arched like a sword, crosses the Kanakura River which flows through the town of Kotohira, Japan.

New York-1

It was 11:50 pm (note clock on Metropolitan Life Building) and we rushed to the entrance of the Empire State Building.  Visibility was quickly decreasing but I was hoping for a cloud break when we reached the top. This view lasted for just a few seconds.

 

Sydney Reflections

Reflections of Sydney

Although Sydney is best known for its harbourfront and hubs of waterside life, the city’s ever evolving skyscrapers, provide spectacular skyline views.  Beautiful abstract compositions on glass and chrome were naturally enhanced by warm, golden hour light. Yep, I was lucky that night!

Buenos Aires Rooftops

Look Up!  Life’s happening up there.  I’m rarely disappointed while sightseeing and look up to capture street scenes far above street level.  There’s an intimacy, a slice of life, that’s revealed from this perspective. I hope that you enjoy the view!
