Worldly Vistas: Light the Sky

Northern Lights, Hudson Bay , Canada

Northern lights—aurora borealis—are caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the upper atmosphere. These dancing lights are strongest in the winter months and are a joy to see. The downside? Yes! It was very cold, but worth being out on Hudson Bay’s tundra to watch this natural phenomenon.

Worldly Vistas: Snowscape

Hudson Bay, Manitoba is a glorious place, for polar bears, that is! It’s the second largest bay in the world, second only to the Bay of Bengal. And, it’s very cold even all year round, especially in the winter. Yet, it  is also beautiful in the way tundra, blowing snow, blocked sun and sparse trees have a beauty all to themselves.

North America: Upper Canyon

Upper Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Calling Antelope Canyon a slot canyon is minimizing its grandeur. Yes. it is a slot canyon, but really it is THE slot canyon: THE one to see; THE one to photograph; THE one to admire.

Located on Navajo land, the Upper Canyon is called Tsé bighánílíní, “the place where water runs through rocks” and, for obvious reasons, is sometimes referred to as “The Crack.”

North America: GRRRRR

Brown Bears

Brown bear or grizzly bear? YES!

The brown bear is any member of the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) and lives in the coastal regions of southern Alaska. These bears are very large, usually ranging in weight from 800 to 1,200 pounds.

I photographed these bears at Brooks Falls, a stretch of the Brooks River where over one hundred brown bears descend  each year to feast on the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world.

North America: Colorado River

Horseshoe Bend, Arizona

Photographed in Arizona

Located just north of Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend is one of the most photographed areas on the Colorado River. And, no wonder. It is truly spectacular!

I used to think photographers shot this from the air. But, in fact, I was laying on the rim, hanging over it to avoid too many rocks and shrubs in the foreground, shooting down and across at the river.

The Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing most of the over-wintering sites of the eastern population of the monarch butterfly. It is located on the border of Michoacán and Mexico State,. Millions of butterflies arrive in the reserve annually, though there is much concern as the population is decreasing.
