I just thought I’d share a few snapshots with you.

Traveling back from Copenhagen to New York City this week, we passed over Greenland. It was such a clear day and the views were absolutely breathtaking! I clamored for my camera while all the first class passengers ewe’d and awe’d and kindly let me climb over them to take some photos. Of course, I emailed them all to my passengers.

Look closely. The small dots of white in the water are icebergs. And the frozen “rivers”… amazing!

In less than 24 hours of my layover, I am thoroughly convinced that Prague is one of the greatest cities in the world. A great walking city, it’s mysterious and bursting with gothic vibes, rich in history and architecture.

We toured the city in a classic car in awe of the spires that speckled the cityscape, walked the ancient cobblestone streets, and tooled around the castle grounds – the largest castle area in the world. We stopped in our tracks to hear of the atrocities of the Old Jewish Cemetery, where more than 100,000 Jews are buried in this small plot of land, the graves being layered 12 deep in some places.

We walked the Charles Bridge among Czech artists, musicians and souvenir vendors who line both sides of the stone Gothic bridge next to the Baroque statues (30 in total).  Dinner was eaten on a rooftop overlooking the castle at sunset, and was about the only thing that didn’t meet our expectations. Known for their beer, not food, we passed it off and gathered with soccer fans in the square to watch the World Cup on a big screen TV in the Old Town Center. To top off the night, we walked back to the Charles Bridge to photograph and enjoy the breathtaking view of the lit Prague Castle against the evening sky.

These images hardly do it justice. This layover, I decided to put down the camera often and revel in the city’s magical ambiance. There’s always next time… I will definitely be back!

I had a blast getting to know Prague with my crew, but I also thought they were extremely photogenic, so I took advantage of putting them up against a beautiful Prague background. Meet Seth, Mona and Rebecca.

I thought these images captured the overall essence of our vacation in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic last month – calm, laid back, days filled with palm trees, white sand beaches and beautiful ocean blues.

These images are the result of a couple unexpected hours spent on Monday at the Carlsbad Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA. The fields were only 60% in bloom.

Enjoy!

Here are my views from HOME! The skies were dumping buckets of water, and as soon as the rain broke, my friend and I raced to the beach with our cameras because the light was incredible! San Diego skies have been incredibly *hot* after our rainstorms. Here’s just another reason why I live in San Diego. Enjoy!

Here are just a few images I took while on Goree Island. I can’t wait to go back here again! There is so much to explore, the island is so laid back, and the locals are so friendly!
