Sunday Snapshot: A Desert Sunset

The desert produces some of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen. During a recent trip to Abu Dhabi I went on an afternoon desert safari.

I didn’t […]

Visual Journey: Balinese Temples

Many know Bali for the surfing, party lifestyle and nightlife of Kuta. I personally was relieved to discover Bali has a very strong cultural and religious side, with Hinduism being the predominant religion on the island. Bali is also known for being “the land of a thousand temples”. There are so many, it would take too […]
