Today's Photo of the Day for Wednesday, June 28, 2017
I was on tour with MegaDeth during their 2012 "Countdown to Extinction" tour. We had a stop over in Dubai, UAE and we had an opportunity to go on a desert safari where I was able to photograph this camel!
Previous Photos of the Day...
This photo is of the newly installed sign at Edgewater Park (The Upper Portion), right at sunrise! This sign was installed shortly after the Cleveland Cavs won the championship! You can find the color version of this photo here: Cleveland Sign During Sunrise At Edgewater Park (City Beneath The Sign II)
When I was traveling to Monterey, California I discovered the "Monarch Grove Butterfly Sanctuary" in Pacific Grove. This is a "resting place" in the eucalyptus grove for the butterflies as they make their journey towards warmer climates!
This photo is of the Cleveland Skyline with the Veterans Memorial Bridge and Cuyahoga River in the foreground. From left to right the 4 tallest buildings are: The Key Tower, The BP-Huntington Building, The Terminal Tower and the Justice Center.
I took this photo on one, sunny afternoon. These pink lilies were nearby my home and I walked past them for a few days, thinking to myself each time, "I need to bring my camera!" Once I did I was able to capture this image of this beautiful flower!
While on a business trip to Colorado shooting some video for a company near Centennial, I made a stop over to Denver and the Red Rock park to check out the beautiful and breath taking views!
While on a trip to Hawaii I made a visit to Pearl Harbor on Oahu. I was able to capture a photo of this vessel, the U.S.S Bowfin submarine, that lived through a traumatic era of American History.
While I was in Washington, DC I was able to take some great night images of a few of the iconic landmarks that make up this city such as this image: The World War II Memorial! I love taking long exposure, night shots of moving water and fountains!
This statue and others like it are found on the Hope Memorial Bridge, formerly called the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge. Here is more information about the Hope Memorial Bridge.
I captured this photo after an ice storm came through the Cleveland area. The storm provided some great picture opportunities that I was able to capture the following day including these weeds covered in ice!
I took this image from the Hope Memorial Bridge. Featured here is the Terminal Tower and Key Tower.
Mount Rainier Sunrise and Paradise River from the Paradise River crossing on The Wonderland Trail. We were on our way out of the Paradise River Campground and en route to the Longmire Trailhead.
This image of the Lake Erie Coast was taken in the early morning hours at Rocky River Park located near Cleveland, Ohio. It happened that one particular night I couldn't sleep very well so I called it quits & started my day earlier than I planned. The thought then came into my mind to go down to the park and see if I can get some cool shots. What else is there to do for a photographer who is up before sunrise? It was a perfect morning to try such an experiment!
I was on tour with MegaDeth during their 2012 "Countdown to Extinction" tour. We had a stop over in New Dehli, India and had a chance to see a few sights. The Taj Mahal being one of them! I'm not usually super impressed by buildings and such but this one takes the cake! It really is magnificent.
I made a stop over to Boulder, Colorado to check out the flatirons in Chautauqua State Park to check out the beautiful and breath taking views.
When I was traveling to Monterey, California I spent a lot of time just walking around the city, Pacific Grove and the sand dunes in the area. Here is a shot of a beautiful, golden sunset in Pacific Grove!
As the inscription on the statue reads, This sculpture is of Leifr Eiriksson and he is believed to be the first European to set foot in North America. It is a copy of a sculpture that was given to the people of iceland by the United States Government in 1930.

Winner of Earthshots Photo of the Day in March 2012! I took this photo during a backpacking excursion through Glacier National Park located in northern Montana, I was able to capture these trees on the bank of this slow moving river. I like this photo because it has a "cool" yet "eerie" feel to it, due to the tallest & apparently dying pine, leaning over the river.
This picture was taken near Cleveland Ohio and features the Lighthouse for the Cleveland Yacht Club. Captured early in the morning, the colors that were available are truly astounding!
