The steel footbridge over the river Main in Frankfurt, Germany was orginally built in 1868, then rebuilt sometime after 1946 since it was destroyed by Nazi Germany during WWII. The bridge was also fully renovated in 1993.
One of the wettest places in the world, and certainly the wettest place in inhabited New Zealand is the beautiful Milford Sound. Mitre Peak rises 1692 meters at the center of this shot and is seen reflected in the freshwater basin easily accessible from a public parking lot.
Upon landing in Queenstown, NZ, one of the first things we needed to do was eat. We had received a list of recommended places to visit for photos from a friend, and this one just happened to have a restaurant. After what is likely the best burgers in the world, we headed outside to watch and capture the amazing scenery and sunset. This was an amazing way to start out the journey in New Zealand!
Looking up between these two mountains while camping at Milford Sound Lodge last week was amazing. For the first time in my life I could see the Milky Way by simply looking up. I was pleasantly surprised when I loaded these shots up on my computer and saw that I had also captured a shooting star in one of my frames. I certainly wish it were towards the center of the photo, but I will take what I was given!
By 1874 many ships had run aground at Cape Bowling Green. This low sandy spit south of Townsville, Queensland, was in dire need of a lighthouse to help ships serving north Queensland ports. The lighthouse was built from local hardwood and clad with iron plates imported from Britain. Staffed by a keeper and three assistants, it was moved twice when threatened by the sea. When an automatic acetylene light was installed in 1920 (operated by a sun valve), the lighthouse was de-staffed. In 1987, it was replaced by a modern tower. It was transported to the museum in 1994, re-erected on our North Wharf and fitted with the type of clockwork and kerosene mechanism used in 1913.

With just a few days in Sydney before heading over to New Zealnd, I had to take a trip up to the highest building (and observation deck) in Australia - The Sydney Tower Eye. This is the view due North with views of Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Opera House.
Only had one free evening to get over to Lake Tahoe on this trip, so I went to nowhere else but the famous Bonsai Rock. I got there a bit late, so I couldn't get to the place I wanted to on down the shore. I found a place to get comfortable to watch the sunset and shot a while. There is a hike down from the main road which is easy to get down, but make sure to bring a flashlight to get back up!
I took this 165 megapixel panoramic from the Visitor's Center during a 1-day trip to the Colorado Springs area. Garden of the Gods is a free park to visit. On the right you can see the famous "kissing camels" in the sandstone formation. In the background of this photo is Pike's Peak which stands at over 14,100'.

Here is one of my photos from Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, from a trip in 2014. Yes, it has been 2+ years and I am just now getting around to processing this photo!
Before anyone posts a negative comment, I ask you to read the following.
In my travels around this world, I have been fortunate enough to enrich my life in many ways. I have visited cathedrals, churches, Jewish, Buddhist and Mormon temples, and even went to one of the largest Islamic mosques in the world. My list of friends likely spans all the religions I have listed. Although we may not agree on things politically, socially or otherwise have a difference of opinion, one thing is for certain - I have no need or desire to disrespect you. I ask you to do the same of my friends. #lovehasnolabels
Danny's photographic and artistic talents are shared with fellow photographers and friends on flickr and Facebook as he travels throughout the world. Creating photo art since 2008, he has quickly developed his specialty in high dynamic range (HDR) photography.
To further his photographic skills and education, Danny attended one of the only HDR workshops in the US taught by the master of high dynamic range photography himself, Mr. Trey Ratcliff.
Applying skills and insight learned at this seminar, Danny was inspired to re-process photos he had previously left untouched. As he posted more of his work on Flickr, he noticed an increased amount of interest and positive comments from other photographers. Danny now specializes in shooting and processing HDR photography and is associated with professional photographers based in South Florida who handle photography jobs ranging from fashion, forensics, and aerial photos.
In late 2009, Danny's was awarded the $7,100 grand prize in a photographic contest entry which was based upon an untouched photo (no Photoshop or other edits) taken simply with his Blackberry cellular telephone camera (the site which ran the contest was brickfish.com).
Danny has shot with a Canon 7D for years, but recently moved to the full frame Sony A7rII.
