Leonardo da Vinci : " Non ingombrarti di cose che appartengono agli occhi, facendole passare dalle orecchie! Fai alle tue figure dei capelli che un vento invisibile sembri far danzare intorno ai loro volti giovanili; con grazia ornali di vari ricci, e non imitare coloro che con la colla danno a quei volti un'aria vetrificata. Io, Leonardo, un giorno conoscerò ogni cosa e saprò dominare tutte le arti che aprono all'uomo le vie dei grandi segreti dell'universo. L'uomo ha in sé le ossa che sostengono la sua carne; il mondo ha le pietre che sostengono la sua terra. L'uomo è il modello del mondo. Ogni parte di un insieme deve essere proporzionato all'insieme. Virtutem forma decorat: La bellezza orna la virtù. "

I took this picture on a recent trip to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Phantom Ship is known as 'the other island' in Crater Lake. It looks like a small pirate ship, but is actually as tall as a 16-story building. It was just the right time of day to get this beautiful reflection.

The sky was overcast and gray in the Yosemite High Country; I had retreated to my tent, disappointed. Just moments before sunset, however, the sun dipped below the cloud cover and the forest and granite domes were suddenly lit with unworldly oranges and reds. I ran out to the granite knife-edge, hurriedly set up my tripod, and shot this photograph. The color lasted just three minutes, never to reappear.

Barn owls are a favorite owl, but front shots aren't their most flattering angle. So I try to find attractive and interesting ways to photograph them. This was my favorite. He looks like he's practicing for a wind tunnel, and the pose reminded me of an old-style hood ornament. I loved the patterning and rhythm of the back feathers.

I found this gecko running around the house. It must have been born recently because it was only half as long as my pinky. I set up a flash through an umbrella and reflector to bring out the details.

This tomato hornworm, along with a dozen of his close friends, chose to make camp in my Better Boys. Fortunately, they all pupated, leaving the bushes a little worse for the wear, but still productive. The chickens would have had a heyday with these guys, but they were all gone by the time I got back from an offshore trip!

I took this picture during sunset in the Namib Naukluft Park-Sossusvlei area in Namibia. I gave the name, as there is no modification on the picture, just out of the cam. I played just with exposure and time.

Agricultural aircraft AN-2 performs chemical spraying of a farmland in Rousse region, Bulgaria, at the Danube River. This photo was captured with a tandem Motodelta at about 1,640 feet altitude in May 2011. I shot a series of about 150 photos during the aircraft's spraying schedule in a five-to-seven minute timeframe. Despite the Motodelta pilot's excellent training, it was a bit risky and dangerous job. Antonov AN-2 is a famous 1946 model aircraft designed for transportation services.
