Rotterdam Central Station: post-processing

The Dutch Railways realises that railway stations form an important part of the center of cities. I guess that is one of the reasons that the architecture of the railway stations is regarded as extremely important. Rotterdam Central Station is no exception. It was officially opened in March 2014. A year later I took this picture.  It is one of my best selling pictures, especially in 2015. The most recent sales was this week. Here the original picture, it was taken with my Nikkor 16-35mm... continue reading

Taking pictures in dangerous countries

       At the end of 2012, when the world was supposed to end, I traveled to Central America’s Norther Triangle region which consists of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. This region is known for the extreme level of organized crime and gang violence. Not something I realized before booking my flight there.              The reason to travel there was to experience end of the 13th Baktun, the last cycle of ancient Mayan calendar and many celebration of the indigenous... continue reading

Coyote Butte: Just another cinder cone?

In times past, volcanic cinder cones like this one were excavated for their red traction material spread by the road commission on icy streets, roads and highways of Central Oregon.Cinders have since been replaced by other more high-tech ice melting substances, so the remaining hills now serve as viewpoints for hikers, as well as impromptu shooting ranges for gun enthusiasts and trash dumps for irresponsible partiers.Nevertheless, Coyote Butte stands out on the Central Oregon High Desert as... continue reading

Horse Butte, Bend, Oregon

Horse Butte is a partially-excavated cinder cone volcano in the southeast corner of Bend, Oregon.It was once mined for its gritty red cinders that provided traction on icy roads.The promontory has since undergone reclamation efforts to restore its natural state as much as possible since a considerable portion of the east side is gone, exposing its rusty red interior.At the summit is an old growth ponderosa pine that has survived hundreds of lightning strikes.Access to the top is by means of... continue reading

Bessie Butte - A Nice Walk to a Spectacular View

I find it curious that there are only seven photos of Bessie Butte and its panoramic view on Dreamstime - all submitted by me....Especially since it is easy to reach, easy to hike, and beautiful to behold once you reach the top.The extinct cinder cone volcano is five miles southeast of Bend, Oregon.The view is enhanced by the lack of mature trees, the result of the 18 Fire of 2003 that burned 3,810 acres of the Deschutes National Forest to the north of the butte.A 2006 planting of some 10,... continue reading

Central Oregon is considered the semi-arid High Desert, but it is not without rivers.There are three major ones, the Metolius, Crooked, and Deschutes.They all merge into the Deschutes at Lake Billy Chinook, a huge reservoir created by the construction of Round Butte hydrolelectric dam.Designated as the Cove Palisades, it is a recreation hot spot and scenic wonder with its towering canyon walls.The Deschutes River originates in the Cascades, and flows through Bend, Oregon,... continue reading

Around the world on Microstock - Update...

In my last blog update, I announced that I was going to be traveling the world... and funding the trip from microstock earnings. My plan at that time was to post regular updates with stories and photos. Well since then I've spent time in Asia before crossing the length of the North American Continent on an 11,000km overland journey.In this time I've road-tripped Big Sur in California, gone horseback riding through canyons in Mexico, toasted marshmallows on an active volcano in Guatemala, gone... continue reading
