Myanmar & Bali Photo Tours! : Luminous Journeys photo tours in Myanmar are without a doubt the best out there. They have teamed with 3-Time Myanmar Photographer of the Year, Kyaw Kyaw Winn, and Hasselblad winner/Nat Geo contributor A.P. Soe to make TRUE insider access a given. Add the amazing David Lazar to the mix, and nothing compares. Having great fun while making great images is what the LJ team is all about, and you can experience it for thousands less than the competition.  http://www.luminousjourneys.net/myanmar-travel-photography-tour/

June 17-19 Alta to Narvik : Days 12, 13 and 14. Day 12, we leave Honningvags and head for Alta. At Alta we visit the historic rock carvings, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We overnight in Alta. Day 13, travel from Alta to Narvik. We have two days in Narvik. On the second day in Narvik, we can choose to do our own thing or join an optional train trip to Sweden. The weather is beautiful so we elect to do a hiking trail on our own. Turns out to be a great decision.

June 12-15 Helsinki to Ivalo : Days 7, 8, 9, 10.  Day 7 we spend travelling through the Finnish Lake District which is very similar to Northern Ontario, including several areas of clear cut timber and three moose. The stop for the evening is Kuopio. Before dinner we ascend a tower to view the surrounding area. The tower is behind the ski jump in the first photo.
Day 8. Continue on into the Arctic and Lapland (not sure if they still call it that), the home of the Sami people. We spend two nights in Rovaniemi, the capital of the region. 
Day 9 is in Rovaniemi, our driver having reached his quota of hours and miles for the week. In the morning we have a city tour in a light drizzle and visit some of the buildings designed by Aalvar Aalto.  We opt out of the afternoon tour and explore Rovaniemi on our own. In the evening we go to a reindeer farm (mosquito hatchery?) for a Sami dinner featuring reindeer meat. Most people including me took seconds so it was pretty good.  We wisely visit the reindeer after dinner and not before.
Day 10. Shortly after leaving Rovaniemi we cross the Arctic Circle and the bus hits a tourist trap (Santa's Village). In spite of ourselves we buy a nice wall hanging as a souvenir of Finland. Goodbyes to Santa and on to the oldest wooden church in Finland, a visit to a National Park and a climb (by bus) to the top of a hill from which we can see Russia less than 30 km away. The night is spent at a riverside motel in Ivalo.

Hidden Valley - Joshua Tree National Park : The name says it all.  This is almost an island universe within the larger park, with its own distinct micro-climate and unique spectrum of plant and animal species.  There is something beautiful and fascinating to see every step of the way along the short loop trail around the valley.  The entire experience evokes contemplation and relaxation and profound joy.

Most of the photos in this gallery are 2013 and 2014 re-edits of images posted in earlier galleries.  In conjunction with the re-editing, I'm separating shots into smaller galleries for single locales.  Once this project the older versions of the shots.

Italia -- 2009 : It all started with a conversation during "date-night" with my oldest daughter... "Dad, I think you ought to go to Italy, and I think you should bring me with you!"  Once my laughter subsided, I asked, "What is all of this about?"  She replied, "You're not getting any younger, so you should go now while you can still enjoy it!  I work at a hotel, so I can get us good rates on lodging!  Since I love to plan trips, I'll do all of the planning and research!" ... and about 3 or 4 other well thought out reasons.  I told her, "You had me at, 'I'm not getting any younger,' so let's talk about this!"  Five weeks later, we set out on an adventure of a lifetime -- a Father/Daughter trip across Italy!   The gallery follows our timeline:  We started our adventure in Venice, and from there took trains to Bologna, Lucca (with a side trip to Cinque Terre), Florence (which included a Vespa-ride out to the wine region of Chianti), and finally, Rome.  I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from our trip, and to my daughter, A-M, "Ti amo, mia figlia!  Grazie mille!"
