Alone at the Beach I can't tell you how many times I've spent mornings and evenings on the beach by myself. I think it's quite alright, and I don't entirely mind it at the time.For me, it is even more strange, I think. Because I always have my camera with me, I suppose I'm not really alone because you are there too, along with the tens of thousands of others. We're there at slightly different times, but still there together with the moment frozen. I'm not sure I can be good company to everyone at the same time, but there are always certain people with whom bare toes on the beach would be more than welcome.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
The Tori Gate What a perfect post-storm dusk! I was going photo-crazy.This is a replica of the exact same place I have been near Nikko, Japan. The Nikko one is quite hard to shoot! There are many things in the way, and setting up for the ideal shot is no easy matter. Plus, when I was in Japan, the sky was not so great that evening. It's the luck of the cards sometimes!But this evening in Disney World was ultra-perfect. Epcot is the park that has all the little international areas. Japan, Germany, France, etc etc. It's all a little silly and fake -- but it's also very cool and scenic! I don't know how it can be both... but it is. Those Disney imagineers do an incredible job of making things look dreamy. I do the best I can to capture the magic as I saw it.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Adventuring in the Valley Argentina is gorgeous. Have I said that before? Doesn't it go without saying by now?You really get to know a set of mountains when you have to hike around them. Fortunately, in the middle of these death marches, I was able to stop and drink in some of the scenery. It took a lot longer than necessary to get to the destination, but at least I arrived with a camera full of photos. That beautiful peak in the distance is Fitz Roy. I was very lucky to see it, because 90% of the time it's covered with clouds.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
