  • Wooden Warmth

    from $20.00

    Walking through the woods near Mt. Hood, in Oregon, we made our way to the Zig Zag falls along a nice little nature trail. The whole forest was beautiful, so different from the forests you'd find in Pennsylvania, and everything had a warmer, softer, mossier feel to it. Then, on the way out of the woods, I noticed the sunlight filtering through the trees and how it gave the woods such a warm look...and I knew I had to capture it on my camera. This here is the result, after combining the images together into a single, beautiful HDR!

  • Yaquina Spiral

    from $20.00

    On the Pacific coast, in Oregon, there is a beautiful old lighthouse, said to be haunted...sat atop a forlorn spit of land jutting into the turbulent waters below, as sand flies buzz outside and the bellowing barks of sea lions echo in the breeze. Walking inside, I could smell the musty history of this old thing; it had first been lighted in 1873, after all. Upon entering, my first instinct was to look directly up; 93 feet from the floor to the light itself, I peered upward through the iron spiral...and this is what I saw.

  • Yuengling's Cavern

    from $20.00

    In the small town of Pottsville, Pennsylvania, visitors can find the oldest beer brewery in America; Yuengling & Son's, which had produced its first beer in 1829, and has since become iconic to beer enthusiasts up and down the eastern seaboard. The wonderful thing about this brewery, even though I don't actually drink beer myself, is that they give free tours year-round to those who make the pilgrimage. As a part of the tour, we were shuffled down flights of industrial revolution-era stairs, and into a huge, expansive cavern that stayed at a cool 50 degrees, year-round. With the temperature rising well above 85 outside, being in this dark, cool place was an absolute godsend. Fortunately for the founders of the Yuengling brewery, this natural cavern formation was also the perfect place, at the perfect temperature, to store beer. This hallway you see in this photo connects the Yuengling factory proper with the dark, stony walls of the cavern, where workers a hundred years ago rolled enormous barrels (Some of the smaller ones, you can clearly see!) of freshly-brewed ale from the pressure-injection room, down to be stored in the caverns below. Makes you thirsty, doesn't it?
