I added another photo to the Peru gallery. This is a panoramic I put together from the second day of hiking, near Humantay Lake. I hope this photo can convey the unbelievable view that was all around us.

Photos from Peru! We just finished an exhausting 5 day/4 night trek through mountains and jungle, along the Salkantay Trail, to reach Machu Picchu. Yes there's a bus or train that will get you there a lot quicker, but where's the fun in that? Peru is a crazy, beautiful, amazing, crazy, ancient, and crazy place. The Inca ruins and the stunning landscapes they were built upon, the colorful and energetic cities, the insanely dangerous roads and wandering farm animals, our passionate and fun tour guides, an awesome group of people to share the moments with, the delicious food and the terrible bathrooms, and the ridiculous amount of stairs I had to climb, all made for an unforgettable adventure in a place I will never forget. Thanks for an amazing time Peru. Click here to view the gallery!
After spending nearly a third of my life in NYC, you would think I would have hundreds of photos of the place. But for some reason, I've never gone out and taken any pictures of the city. And as I now feel like my time is starting to wind down here, I told myself I need to get out and start capturing this place that I love so much, while I'm still here and have the opportunity. So I'm going to try and get out a couple times a month, to various places around the city, and build up this gallery. Keep checking back!
First trailer for Just Cause 3 released this morning! I'll be continuing work on the game until summer.
Maya enjoying her first blizzard.
Say hi to Maya! She's had a rough week since moving to her new home, fighting off a bad cold from the kennel and trying to adjust to a lot of new things. But she's going to have a good life, and will be a great traveling partner!
I uploaded another photo from my Oregon trip today. Crater Lake is up there among the most special places I've been able to see with my own eyes. No photograph I've ever seen or taken can live up to actually being there. There's a lodge on the rim of the crater, and my favorite memory from the whole trip was when I was just sat there one perfect morning, drinking some coffee, and looking out over the peaceful, blue, lake. I thought about what it must have been like for the first explorer to come across this place, not knowing it even existed. But I also thought about how fortunate we are to live in a time when we can visit and appreciate these incredible places with relative ease. Because even though sometimes I get annoyed with how many people there always are at these types of locations, it doesn't get lost on me how many more people throughout history have never known, or only heard stories, of magical places like Crater Lake. If you have ever thought about traveling here, just go. Hopefully this photo helps illustrate the overwhelming view you will have.

Was upstate over the weekend, and took a quick trip to Watkins Glen State Park. I hadn't been there since I was a kid, when I really had no appreciation for how beautiful it is. Easily one of the most photogenic parks I've ever been to, especially this time of year. I got there before sunrise, anticipating large crowds on a Sunday. And sure enough, it wasn't long after the sun came up that the park quickly filled with visitors. I managed to snap some photos and enjoy the park to myself for a little while though, and was well on my way home by the time everyone else was trying to find parking. Click here to view the gallery!
I also have a print available from this set, available for purchase here.
