As I write this post I’ve been on the road for a couple months traveling to 20+ national parks, shooting the fall colors. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of The Narrows, but it’s a beautiful narrow canyon hike in Zion National Park. If you get the chance, you have to check it out (if you’re up to the challenge). Read More

A Guatemalan archaeologist by the name of Francisco Estrada-Belli has just discovered an incredibly detailed and beautiful Mayan frieze measuring 26ft by 6ft, which is essentially a large sculpted decoration on a wall near the ceiling. It was found approximately 65ft below a pyramid. “The preservation is wonderful because it was very carefully packed with dirt before they started building over it,” Mr Estrada-Belli said. The sculpture is believed to depict the crowning of a new Mayan leader in about 590AD.
It was discovered at the archaeological site of Holmul, which is in very close proximity to Tikal National Park, one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the Mayan civilization. In addition to the only fully developed written language in the Americas, the Mayans had highly proficient and fully developed mathematical and engineering systems.

The Photo Alliance ‘Our World’ annual photography portfolio review was held this past weekend in San Francisco. It’s a national juried portfolio review and some some 3,000-5,000 photographers apply to in hopes of getting their work seen by professionals, with around 50 accepted. I was lucky enough to be accepted and was pretty excited to attend.
