It is with great pleasure to announce that a feature story about Washington, D.C. that I shot last fall is running in the current issue (May/June 2010). Both the article and the photo gallery are online. If you subscribe, the magazine is probably in your mailbox! If you don’t subscribe, I highly recommend giving the magazine a go – it’s packed with useful information from travel tips to feature stories illustrated with fabulous pictures. It was a fantastic shoot to work on. The editorial staff at National Geographic Traveler is top notch to work with and although the subject matter felt vast, we were able to cherry pick some of the best the city has to offer. I now want to return to the city just to revisit some of the restaurants, parks and museums that I covered for the story. You can see the story online here, and the gallery of photography here.

The sound that wakes me most mornings here on Maui comes from an introduced bird species called the Gray Francolin. They are quite common in Hawaii, particularly around the beach where many hotels have unwittingly provided the perfect habitat in which they thrive. There were a pair sitting in the tree, just outside the lanai, and I was fortunate to be able to capture them calling out. Enjoy!

Last night we were having dinner in Maui on Ka’anapali beach on the lanai as the waxing crescent moon was setting in the twilight… it was astonishingly beautiful so I grabbed my 5D Mark II and the 70-200 f2.8 IS USM lens and took a few snapshots of the moon and Venus. I could not believe how pretty the image turned out. If I had tried to shoot this on film, it wouldn’t have been possible, I don’t think. (and I still love film!) I processed the RAW file in Adobe’s Lightroom with just a little noise reduction and the image just sings. In fact, I could see more with the digital file than I could with my naked eye.

Tomorrow we fly to Maui for six glorious weeks. The humpback whales should still be around and the water temperature will exceed the average air temperature in Portland by at least 20 degrees. With my Canon 5D Mark II cameras in hand, I’ll be fully equipped to shoot whatever assignments come my way. Hopefully we’ll have time to surf, spend some time relaxing on Ka’anapali Beach and head to Merriman’s for the best seat in the house for a sunset drink. Aloha!
