Spring 2013 – Landscapes

And also the trees

And also the trees

Captured recently while waiting for the train in Claymont, Delaware. It was one those mornings where the thick fog persists and hangs languidly across the landscape. The Delaware River is just beyond the trees in the pale dawn. The title was inspired by an english band of the same name, the groups musical aesthetic matches the feeling of this scene. – Alex Milne

selah - Crushed Limestone

Crushed Limestone

This was taken in the desert in southern Oman. I was struck by the contrast of the reddish black surface with the absolutely pure white interior of the rock. – Selah Lynch

Garden Study 2 - Patrick Esmonde

Garden Study

Peeking through a mid-summer garden, I spotted this beautiful leaf and captured it against a overcast day. The vibrant colors were hardly visible without the aid of the macro lens I used to get close-up to this leaf. – Patrick Esmonde

Diaspora - Ka-Wing Tam


Monterey cypress trees in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, California. Growing on the rocky cliffs of the California shoreline, they have evolved uniquely to withstand the salty sea winds. Here is the one of two places on earth that this species grows naturally. – Ka-Wing Tam

Schuylkill River Park Magnolia tree - Edward Kamarauskas

Magnolia Tree Blossom

The colors of an early spring sunset reminded me of a Maxfield Parrish painting. So I grabbed my camera and ran out the door to take some photos before night fall. I came across some magnolia trees which were in full bloom. I stood on a park bench to capture the magnolia blossoms using the built-in camera flash. – Edward Kamarauskas

The Alaska Range - Bob Zarazowski

The Alaska Range

Photo taken in the Autumn of 1998, just south of Denali National Park. Staying at a wilderness lodge in the backcountry of Alaska, we rode horseback to get further into the middle of nowhere. It was difficult to take a bad photo along the trail, but this one turned out to be one of my all-time favorites. – Bob Zarazowski

Maya Bay - Dan Alig

Maya Bay

The world famous Maya Bay, with its white sandy shoreline, surrounded by gigantic limestone cliffs and coral reefs. Located on the uninhabited island of Koh Phi Phi Leh in Thailand’s Andaman Sea this majestic beach is only reachable by boat, preferably one of the colorful longtails pictured in the foreground. – Dan Alig
