    Great Sand Dunes National Park

    Great Sand Dunes National Park is one of the most amazing places I have ever seen. The initial plan was to camp overnight, but unfortunately it is black bear country. Since I had lots of food in the trunk of my car, I chickened out and decided not to camp. Yet, I did visit the place for just a couple of hours which were more than enough to have an amazing time.

    It has become kind of a weekly thing now for me to take my camera and explore a new location around me. There is so much to see and do within a few hours drive from my home, this week: Zion Canyon National Park.

    The Work of Mother Nature at Red Rock Canyon

    How many people visit Las Vegas and stay in the casino day and night? Well, that's how I use to be. I love the sin city, and I have always gambled all day long whenever I was there, but after a while, I started to finally realize that's not a very healthy way to spend my vacation!

    Besides being the home to the glorious Mount Tahan, Taman Negara is also the habitat of thousands of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna that create one of the most diverse and complex ecosystems in the world. Not only that, it is also the home to some indigenous people called, the Batek clan. This phenomenal nature diversity in Taman Negara is a veritable treasure not only to Malaysia but to the planet.

    On the Road from California to Florida: Joshua Tree National Park

    Not since we drove from St. Augustine, FL to Boston, MA four years ago have we been on the road together (driving from LA to San Francisco or Vegas doesn’t really count). This time, our target is 15 cities around the southern half of the United States in three weeks. Our first stop is the Joshua Tree National Park.

    Some places on this planet are so beautiful, it hurts just a little when you leave them. But you also know you’re a better person for having been there. Cleaner, almost.

  • Gunung Mahameru the Great Mountain

    Gunung Mahameru the Great Mountain

    Once an active volcano in Indonesia, Semeru is an integral part of the volcanic belt of Asia called, the "Pacific Ring of Fire". It is located in East Java and is 3,676 metres high. This "stratovolcano" is also known as Gunung Mahameru (the Great Mountain) due to its supreme attributes. In fact, Mahameru actually refers to the Hindu god Siwa in local dialects. Siwa the Destroyer (Dewa Pemusnah) is the most powerful one, hence, it comes to no surprise that Mount Semeru is named after this forceful deity.

    Yellowstone National Park - Curiouser and Curiouser

    Nowhere on Earth is heaven and hell so closely intertwined as they are in Yellowstone National Park. It's an other-worldly foray into fire, steam, smoke and ice. The wildness of the park is unlike anywhere else in the United States...and did I mention, it's inside the caldera of a super-volcano?

    Winter in the bavarian forest, Cham

    When the winter and Christmas time comes, you can't imagine it without snow. There's a beautiful place to go in Germany/Bavaria, during winter time: the Bavarian forest ("Bayrischer Wald" and of course it's also a great place during summertime for other activities, see my previous location http://beta.lomography.com/magazine/locations/2008/08/01/hang-gliding-at-the-bchelstein)

    Boattrip for One: Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, Chile

    By now, my family and friends know that I am quite the intrepid traveler. But back in 2002, when I told them I had booked myself a plane ticket to Argentina, they declared me insane. Nonetheless, I took off with nothing more than a travel guide and a vague plan. Little did I know that plan would take me on what was, still is and always will be the most beautiful trip of my life. Right to the end of the world!

    Old Faithful, Yellowstone, WY LomoStop #4

    In July 2009 I took an 8000 km road trip with my wife, two young children, and my mother- and father-in-law. Yes. That sounds a little crazy - but in order to keep my sanity (and test theirs) - I took along 10 cameras and 40 rolls of film. We passed through 10 American states and 3 Canadian provinces, and only 1 massive and fascinating carved mountain.

    Spring Fling Series 5: Bush Walk

    What is more romantic than going on an adventure together? Walking hand-in-hand down a trail that maybe no one else has been to in months, telling each other stories and whispering sweet nothings, then BAM you walk into a cobweb! That's what you get when you're bush walking in Australia!
