    from $150.00

    I love architecture. The way we're able to build things, each of those things presented with such a unique flourish and style that defines where they stand, as much as the surroundings define them. This bridge, the iconic Roberto Clemente Bridge right beside Pittsburgh's PNC Park, is one such piece of gorgeous architecture that screams "You're in the 'Burgh!". I love the bridge's deep yellow color, and wanted to bring that color into sharp contrast with the rest of the city. Interestingly, this is but one of three identical bridges in a row that hang over the Allegheny river, in addition to one very similar bridge that also spans the width of the Monongahela river, on the other side of the city. You might wonder how I managed to get this picture without being hit by a car? Thankfully, the bridge is closed off and used for foot traffic during Pirates games!

  • Our Sentinel

    Friday, September 27th, 2013; the day the duck arrived. Marking the beginning of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's "Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts", Pittsburgh had been chosen as the first place in the United States to play host to one of these massive, 40x30 foot rubber ducks, designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. These ducks had previously been seen floating in such far off places as Sao Paulo in Brazil, in Hong Kong, China and even in Sydney, Australia, among many other places. People came out in droves to see this duck, and I was among them! The bridge you can see spanning the Allegheny river is the Roberto Clemente Bridge, the very same bridge featured in my other photo, Black and Yellow. However, instead of being vacated as it was in that photo, the bridge was utterly packed full of crowds eager to celebrate a gigantic rubber duck. Sure it's ridiculous, but it's fun! The point of this whole thing, according to the artist, is to evoke happiness and fond memories of childhood, for any and all who look at it, over the whole planet. Sadly however, when pulling my camera out to snap this photograph...my lens cap detached from my camera, and rolled off into the river. It will be missed.

  • Pennsylvanian Autumn

    from $150.00

    Living in Pennsylvania, it's only natural that I live close to a lush deciduous forest; the kind that changes colors during the fall. One morning I decided to get up, grab my camera, and take a little hike back into the woods, to see what I could find; the result is here before you, a warm palette set against the cool sunlight of a mid-autumn day. It's just a shame the colors don't last very long! You're lucky to get maybe two weeks of prime time, before the leaves fall from their branches, and the forests are left bare and brown.

  • The Day is Done

    from $150.00

    The day came to a close at the fishing docks in Newport, Oregon. The ships were coming to port, the activity came to a crawl as workers turned in their shifts, the sun drooping steadily below the horizon. And yet, through the approach of nightfall, the sea lions continued to bellow. Their cries mingled with the ever present caws of the nearby seagulls, all of them opportunistically plucking at the waters for that next tasty fish. As for the workers of the dock, their day was done. Beautiful scene, isn't it? I thought so, too.

  • The Oregon Coast

    from $150.00

    This is one of the many gorgeous sights to be had along Oregon's Highway 101, what is possibly one of the most scenic and beautiful drives to be had anywhere in America. This view seemed to stretch out forever, an overlook of the Pacific ocean with mists rolling over the coast in the distance, the skies bright and clear, and people of all ages frolicking in the cold waters below. You can see them down there, some with surfboards, some with nothing but their swim suits, but all of them having a good time.

  • Up

    My photograph, "Wooden Warmth" is one of the more popular photographs that I've offered here at Nulion Photography, but it of course wasn't the only photo I'd taken there! While visiting those gorgeous woods along the slopes of Mt. Hood, in Oregon, after taking the shot that would become "Wooden Warmth", I aimed my camera skyward. What I saw was this; the day's final sunlight as it filtered through the treetops, trunks casting stark shadows against the leafy canopy. As I recall, that was my last photograph for the day; not five minutes later, the sun had dipped far enough beneath the horizon that the warm, golden color seen here had faded into memory. Skip forward several years, and I still had yet to find a way to make this photograph shine.

  • Wooden Warmth

    from $150.00

    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!
