Help for your prickly heat woes I have spent a lot of time in Thailand over the last several years. Terrific culture, friendly people, great food and warm weather. Unfortunately for me and others, the daily high humidity can cause heat rash known as prickly heat. Before my first trip to Bangkok several years ago […]
Keep “yo-self” Dry! I was heading up North to Vermont to spend some time hiking along a riverbank and do some canoeing. No matter how careful I’ve been I’ve always managed to wind up with some wet gear. Residual water in the boat, rain, or just setting my pack down in some wet grass has […]
Finally a truly waterproof backpack! If you’ve ever searched for a waterproof backpack for your travels and adventures, you’ve likely found that the results are both scarce and pricey. What’s surprising is that there are NOT more options for the traveling backpacker. You never know when you’ll get caught in the rain […]
My normal focus on travel gear reviews usually tend to bring me to backpacks, clothing or some new electronic device. So when I needed to get a new pair of sunglasses I decided I’d share my experience with my new eyewear. After all, a lot of us do decide to go away some place sunny! […]
I am a huge fan of waterfalls big or small. Any chance I am in an area where I can go check one out, I’m there. I recently was spending some time in Southern Vermont prepping for an upcoming Spartan Race when a quick search for waterfalls nearby led me to Jelly Mill. One of the best […]
Sunsets and Lighthouses It is nearly summer here in New England and I am out on the ocean nearly daily. A couple nights ago I was able to capture an awesome sunset, lighthouse pic. I was in the Gardiners Bay area looking North towards Connecticut. The timing was just right to capture the sun giving […]
Pico Mountain Poma Line I was up skiing recently in Vermont at Pico Mountain with a friend of mine who’s a regular on the mountain. We were both in the mood for some tree skiing and his inside knowledge of the mountain provided some interesting options. After taking the lift to the summit we traversed a […]
I am visiting Malaysia this week with the majority of my time in Kuala Lumpur. It was a beautiful day and I decided to seek out KLCC Park to go for a jog and have a respite from the urban jungle. Although I knew I was close to the towers, about 1km into my run […]
I spend a lot of time out on the waters of Long Island Sound. It allows be to capture some spectacular sunsets and vibrant sky colors. Now that summer is officially over I’d like to share some of my favorites that I’ve been lucky enough to snap.

Everyone knows I love a good sunset. I usually capture some great ones out on the ocean. Here I was in The Old Town Square in Prague. Anyone who has been there knows how beautiful it is day or night. As many times as I’ve been to Prague and taken countless photos, I’d never been […]
Lighthouses from the Northeast Happy fourth of July! As summer is in full swing I thought I would share one of my lighthouse/sunset pics. This one is taken from Gardiners Bay looking north to the Connecticut coast. It is not often this time of year when the sky colors are just right and I am […]
After doing two Tough Mudder’s last year, I definitely had the urge for more. It would be eight weeks between events and now, being a veteran of one, my plan was to one up myself and not simply finish. I recruited my brother, an accomplished Ironman triathlete to run with me this time. Although he […]
I pass this lighthouse on the job everyday. This gives me the opportunity to get some great shots. This one was taken about ten minutes past sunset last night and had some impressive hues.
I was visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago with my brother and nephew when we came across this frisky pair of turtles. Lucky for me I didn’t get the “what are they doing” question from my young nephew! I thought this would give everyone a laugh and give the whole “pic of the week” a […]
