This was another trip to Yosemite to capture a moonbow over Yosemite Falls. The couple pictures below were taken en-route to Yosemite Valley, you can spot Half-Dome in the background of the first one:

This was the perfect combination for a spectacular moonbow thanks to clear skies and a strong water flow at Lower Yosemite Falls:

Jonny Lang live at the Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga, CA

Friday, June 18th, 2010

The Montalvo Arts Center, along with the Mountain Winery, offers one of the most intimate venues for top quality live music, performers such as Buddy Guy, BB King, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, and Jonny Lang regularly grace their stages.

Jonny Lang is an exceptional musician who can sing better than anyone else, and make his guitar sing, cry, and beg for mercy.

On this tour, Jonny came back to a pre-“Turn Around” CD era setlist with energetic blues and rock songs. His band is composed of Akil Thompson on guitar, Jim Anton at the bass, Dwan Hill on keyboard, Barry Alexander at the drums, and Jason Eskridge on vocals.


Thailand: Ang Thong National Marine Park

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

I went on a full day speed boat tour of the Ang Thong National Marine Park west of Koh Samui. We started the tour with a snorkeling stop. While the water was clear it was nowhere as clear as Koh Tao’s waters.

Thailand: Koh Samui

If you don’t want to be stopped every block by tailors and massage shops you may want to stay away from Chaweng Street or avoid Koh Samui altogether…

Thailand: Koh Tao – day 2

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

I booked a snorkeling tour around the island via Diamond Tours, they are cheap, the owners are super nice. They stop by several snorkeling spots around Koh Tao including Shark Bay where you can spot black tip reef sharks, and dock on Koh Nangyuan for the final stop which offers a breathtaking view from its top.
I loved this tour so much that I booked the exact same tour the next day (not that I had much else to do on Koh Taho anyways).

Thailand: Songkran in Chiang Mai

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Since I’m always carrying a DSLR camera I was hesitant participating in Chiang Mai’s Songkran festival. Eventually I extended my stay in Chiang Mai thanks to the red shirts in Bangkok. Luckily people were nice and avoided throwing water as long as the camera was visible (YMMV), it was another story once I left it at the hotel.

Once again, if you value your life I suggest not to rent a motorcycle during the Songkran festival:
