Sunset Safari

Eastern Africa 2023

Epic trip to Eastern Africa, including Madagascar, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and a side trip to Paris. See amazing animals, lots of lemurs, loads of lions, life and death, beautiful birds, big baobabs, gregarious gorillas, creeping cheetahs, lovely leopards, spectacular sunsets, and so much more. A trip of a lifetime.


Australia 2022

A wonderful trip photographing wildife, birds, fish, butterflies, and beautiful scenery in Queensland, the Northern Territory, Tasmania, and Victoria. I even made friends with a wombat who wandered into my cabin, and gave him a massage! And watched crocodiles having a ferocious fight over some food.


Iceland Summer 2021

Yippee! It is finally possible to travel again! Iceland was one of the first countries to open up to travelers, at least to vaccinated travelers. This trip included driving all around the entire ring road, travels in the West Fjords, and lots of time spent in lovely hot springs. And as an added bonus, after making all the plans for the trip, an amazing volcano came to life. It was a strenuous hike, but I got some great photos and videos.

Extended journey through Paris, Barcelona, Girona, Figueres, Bilbao, San Sebastián, Madrid, Lisbon, Sintra, The Algarve (Faro and Lagos), Seville, Córdoba, Granada, Gibraltar, Tangier, Fes, Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Asilah, Málaga, Ronda, and Oslo.

Northern Lights

Iceland Winter 2013

Amazing photos of the northern lights, a hike up a glacier, hot springs, volcanos, lava, geysers, waterfalls, elves, trolls, Vikings, hotdogs, hot-house tomatoes, and ukuleles. Who would have guessed that there is so much to see in a tiny island whose whole population is smaller than the city of Portland?

Also, information about the US embargo of Cuba. I returned to Cuba in 2001 with a different chorus. Here are lots of photos from that trip.

The Cheap-Suit Santas go to Portland!

Why would close to 100 people dressed as Santa Claus run amuck in Portland in 1996? Why not?
