An abandoned farm in upstate New York

An abandoned upstate farm lighted by the golden light of a setting sun.

It once stood tall

Whenever I venture into the forest I am always reminded that the moment we call life is lightning fast...

Chameleon Falls

Chameleon is one of the three waterfalls at Glen Onoko Falls trail located in Lehigh Gorge State Park near a wonderful little town of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. It is a steep and treacherous trail, but sooo much worth all the effort...

An old pine

Deep inside a pine forest

A frozen heart

Final resting place for a fallen tree and its root heart inside a winter forest

A grim day over the Lehigh Gorge

The overall mood of this landscape scene was exactly matched by my own...

A glimpse into the forest

A glimpse of the forest just before the big snow fell

Tracks into the winter wonderland

The Jersey Central track has long been abandoned and is now part of the state park trail...

The warmth of a winter sun

The rays of a winter sun falling into the pine grove

The sunset tree

I was returning home from a long day hiking in a winter forest when I noticed that it was the sunset time. Now, I had wanted to shoot this tree for a few weeks already, but thought that I was too tired and that I would come back here some other time. After driving a few hundred feet further away I decided to make a U-turn and come back for the shot as I really liked the colors of a setting sun as the backdrop for the lone tree. I am glad I did make myself comeback for this shot:)

Peaceful morning on the lake

I love quiet and calming atmosphere of Lake George in the early morning when most people are still sleeping...

The flowing waters of Hickory Run creek

A fog covered morning

After a night of snowfall followed by a freezing rain, a dreamy fog has taken over...

The full circle of life

A lot of times when trekking in the forest we are reminded of the circle of life that apllies to all the living things... There is a time to be born and the time to die...

A road through the forest

An unpaved road through Hickory Run forest

An oldtimer

The magic of the forest awaits everywhere you dare to look...

Morning at the lake

Early morning at the dock on Lake George, NY

A lonely birch

Deep inside the forest

Forest holds a lot of secrets and to find some of them one has to venture deep inside and look for its beauty which is hidden by being right in front of us...

An eternal movement

Glen Onoko Falls

Water flowing down through rocks and fallen trees into the Lehigh river

Pine grove in winter

I have long wanted to shoot a series of forest landscape images similar in style to a famous Russian landscape painter Ivan Shishkin. I absolutely love his work and it really helps me with my photography. There is a lot to learn from Shishkin's paintings in terms of composition and lighting and studying his paintings has helped me tremendously...

Winter magic

Rays of sun lighting the snow blown from the top of the pine trees by the wind

The oyster mushroom colony

Oyster mushroom (aka white rot or oak root) fungus on a dead tree deep inside the winter forest

Running through the forest

PA-534 through Hickory Run State Park

A snow covered trail

One of the trails at Hickory Run State Park covered in fresh snow

Icicles over Hickory Run Creek

The flowing creek at Hickory Run State Park

Lake George near Hague, NY

Cloudy morning over Lake George. Hague, New York

Nature's Art

Every forest is full of nature's whimsical creations, but one needs to look to be able to see them...

Sunset at the creek

Sunset light warming up cold waters of a winter creek...

upstate New York

A lone tree in the middle of the grass field near a town of Crown Point in upstate New York

A lake beneath

A small pine grove just above frozen and snow covered Hickory Run Lake

Morning at the creek

Early morning at Hickory Run creek

The flow of life

Milky Way over Lake George, NY

A fragment of the Milky Way galaxy over the northern part of Lake George near a town of Hague in upstate New York

A dark day in the mountains

It was a really dark day in Picos de Europa mountains when a small part of the skies cleared up to reveal bright light of the sun somewhere above the clouds...

Village of Sotres, Asturias

Famous for its strong tasting, home made Cabrales cheese, Sotres is also the highest village in Picos de Europa mountain range and all of the Asturias region. Overlooking the village from the east are the snow covered pics of Peña Maín (1,609m)

Fornalutx, Mallorca

Fornalutx, in the hills above Soller, calls itself the prettiest village in Spain and it is hard to disagree, unless you accept the claims of its neighbour Biniaraix. It is a quiet little place at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. The architecture of the village is of stone and red roof tiles, with most buildings' windows also having green painted wooden shutters. The stone façades on the majority of these houses have been exposed in recent years by removing the original render to give the buildings a more rustic appearance than was originally the case. Built on different levels, many of the higher streets are pedestrianised and cobbled, with grassy paths leading off into the orchards and farms to the north.

Road into the mountains

A winding road leading into the snow capped mountains near lake Ercina in Asturias.

Crushing waves of the Cantabrian sea

Mighty waves of the Cantabrian sea crushing at jurassic cliffs of Asturia's Costa Verde

Asturian natives

Cows are as much a symbol of Asturias as its snow capped mountains and you will see them roaming around pretty much everywhere. I met these two while hiking around Covadonga lakes in Picos de Europa mountains.

after the Storm

an overview of the Picos de Europa mountains from Mirador del Fito right after a massive rain passed through. There is a rainbow over the ocean visible in the far left of the frame.

Cala Conills, San Telmo

Cala Conills is one of the small calas (beaches) in the village of San Telmo (aka Sant Elm) in Mallorca, Spain. I just hope that I was able to capture all of the beauty and true colors of its azure waters and pine tree mountains that surround it... In the top left corner of the pano you can see part of the Dragonera island...

late Spring in Picos de Europa mountains

Snow capped pics of the Western Massif of Picos de Europa. This shot was taken at the Puerto de Panderruedas near a mountain village of Posada de Valdeon in the province of Castilla y León, Spain

Andalusian olive grove

Andalusian olive grove. Granada, Spain.

village of Zonza, Corsica

Zonza just after the sun has set over the mountains on the left. Majestic Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles) rise over the village on the right. The peaks, which are a jewel of the southern Corsica landscape, rise to a height of more than 1600m (5250ft) and which are also known as the Cornes d'Asinao (Asinao Horns), are jagged points whose colour ranges from ochre to golden red depending on the position of the sun in the sky.

a Sunny day in Picos de Europa mountains

Panorama of the Picos de Europa national park, Asturias. There are very few sunny days here in the months of Spring, so when one does come around you better be in the right place:)

Limestone cliffs of Bonifacio

Limestone cliffs towering over the emerald waters of Bonifacio, Corsica

panorama of Naranjo de Bulnes (Picu Urriellu) and Picos de Europ

This is an overview of Naranjo de Bulnes (Picu Urriellu) and the Picos de Europa mountains from mirador Pedro Udaondo. Pedro Udaondo was a spanish alpinist who loved Picos de Europa as much as his own life... He died in an accident in the Western Massif of the Picos. This breathtaking view point, which was previously named mirador de Cabrales, was renamed Pedro Udaondo in his memory.

The virgin shore of Cabo Peñas

One of the virgin beach coves of Spain's northernmost point - Cabo Peñas with its inaccessible by land pebbled playa and rocky cliffs.

Sunset over the Mediterranean in Torrox

Late, September sunset on the beach of Torrox, Spain.

Slopes along the Beyos Gorge, Asturias

The road along the Beyos gorge is one of the most beautiful scenic routes in the province of Asturias...

Playa de San Antolin, Asturias

Mountain refuge

A lone refuge hut in the mountains of Asturias, Spain

Rural Landscape, Mallorca

Mallorca is mostly known for its azure waters, picturesque bays and coves and charming little towns along the coast... But if you venture deep inside the island and away from the coast you will discover its amazing countryside along with its unique villages, towns and landscapes just like this...
