When is the last time you just didn't go the same way?Yesterday I was driving home when I looked at my passenger and said, "you have been officially kidnapped." Then off we went. What should have taken about 1/2 hour drive home ended being almost 4 hours? Sometimes taking a new road can bring you new surprises and sights.I have found MANY new things just by getting lost or taking a left instead of a right. Today we had found the Ritner Creek Bridge, an old barn, a field... continue reading

I have a job about 45 minutes from home that involves trips to various clients' branches for meetings.I love shooting landscape and nature as well as scenic views in Israel.By taking my camera with I have managed to capture my country and create a unique niche, that has been profitable and has generated nice steady income.I want to suggest couple of things that had helped me to succeed despite the limited free time to photograph between my base and my destinations.1) Plan you route&... continue reading
Two days ago, someone bought 8 of my images in one day, all from the same "Holy land series" images. These images have been posted on DT for couple of years now, selling here and there, while I slowly increase the number of images that belong to this series. Never before have I sold so many in one day. What can you take from my experience (beyond me tapping on my own shoulder.... :-) ) :1) Follow your heart - You will probably shoot better images if you like what you document... continue reading
I absolutely love to photograph in the fog and mist.It's truly a photographer's dream, the way the fog diffuses the light and has the ability to make everything appear so mystical. This photo is my absolute favorite one I took in the fog.It was a foggy morning and seeing that, I had grabbed my camera and to take a walk and snap some photos.I actually did not realize the heron was in the picture until after the fact when I was fiddling around in Lightroom.I made a collection... continue reading
I recently had the pleasure to visit a tiny Norwegian town called Flam. Flam is a very small town situated at the end of a fjord (Aurlandsfjord) and dramatically surrounded by high mountains with steep sides and snow on the top. Aurlandfjord and Naeroyfjord are both part of Sognefjord which is one of the longest fjords in the world. One way to witness the fjords is from high up the mountains. This can be done on a hike but there is also an interesting viewpoint called Stegastein which is a... continue reading
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
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
After a long search spanning several years, I found a little camp trailer to pull behind my trucks. This is very exciting and will allow for many new photographic opportunities. As any of you must know, being in the field in simply a car can cost you images.Many times upon visiting a geographical location the light is not right and you want to hang around, well many times we may not because it's just plan uncomfortable. Not Anymore! These are a few of the images showing up in the first trip with... 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
Anyone who knows anything about Oregon scenery knows about Mount Hood, Multnomah Falls, Columbia Gorge and Crater Lake.So I've created a collection of some of the lesser known places in Oregon.See it at https://www.dreamstime.com/oregon-off-the-beaten-path-colldet18401. continue reading
