Punakha Dzong Monastery, Bhutan

#241 Punakha Dzong Monastery, Bhutan

Heading out from Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan on your tour to the Monastery (tours are compulsory in Bhutan), you’ll reach the top of the pass in most cases and spend the night there. This is great to give you time to shoot the panorama of the snowy Himalayas in the distance at sunset and […]

Postcard Alley, Moab

#240 Postcard Alley, Moab, Utah

The only other Moab area sites I have on my 301 Landscapes to Photograph Before You Die are Delicate Arch and Mesa Arch. It’s time to add another site from the area that we locally call Postcard Alley. It’s the narrowing of the canyon along Highway 128 just after Hittle Bottom as you are going […]

Cathedral Beach, Spain

#239 Cathedral Beach, Spain

Cathedral Beach on the North Coast of Spain is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of natural sea arches, with about half a dozen in less than a few hundred yards. The best time to shoot the area is in the summer because the arches mostly occur on a north facing wall, and […]

Toro Waterfall, Juan Castro National Park, Costa Rica

#238 Catarata Del Toro Waterfall, Juan Castro National Park, Costa Rica

There are many great waterfalls in Costa Rica, some require long hikes in rough country to visit and shoot, while others, like Catarata Del Toro Waterfall, are easy to get to. It’s in a National Park and and a Conservation area, so another great thing about this waterfall is the extensive rainforest that surrounds it. […]

Amazing Buddha Statues of Asia

#237 Amazing Buddha Statues of Asia

I have included many religious sites in my list of landscapes to photograph before you die, but this time we’re looking at the big Buddhas that are so large they are part of the landscape. I saw the first one when I was watching the Olympics in China—the Leshan Great Buddha. Carved from a cliff […]



For some reason Sedona was left out of my original book, but it was an oversight. The area has many great photographers now and has always been a draw to me, even with its obvious similarities to Moab. It would be a waste of time for me to write about the photographic possibilities of Sedona […]



I am lucky to be one of the few people who have photographed this part of the extensive deserts of Turkmenistan. Even getting into the country with the help of the U.S. State Department was almost impossible, and once there, it’s a long trip to this spot which would require a guide. This desert has […]

The Bahamas

#234 The Bahamas

This time of year, it’s not unreasonable for those of us in northern climes to find our minds drawn toward the tropics and its amazing islands. I’ve had the good fortune to visit many of the world’s most beautiful isles, and the Bahamas definitely rank high. Though like Florida they don’t have much high terrain, […]
