I call it ThrowbackMaine

Hmmm…
When was the last time I visited this blog site?
I know I had several trips after I had published my last one. But with all the trips I made, I know there were only a handful I did pressed the shutter.

Let’s just say this is after all a Throwback. ThrowbackMaine if you allow me to call it that way. I will also have few more of these Throwbacks later.

Before looking at those photos below, let me ask you this, does any of you out there had spent several occasions watching sunsets or sunrises. Well, I know I did alot last year. Last 2015. It’s so relaxing and most of the time appreciating nature. Don’t you think?

By the way, last year I launch my own website. If you could visit it, I would be happy to see there. The link is just below.

Nature has its own way of impressing humanity

Our second day in Utah, we travelled from SLC to Moab. A quick visit to Arches National park and travel back to SLC.
Did not spend the night though to take night shots. We need to be in SLC to do our day time job.

However, upon arrival inside the park, we were ecstatic. Speechless. Don’t know where to go first even if we had planned it well before our travel. Did few stops due to amazement. Nature has its own way of impressing humanity. It’s just…

Anyway, here are few of the images I got from Arches National Park as we as from Antelope Island.

Note: Some of the locations needs alot of hiking and plenty of drinking water.

A few minutes to an hour hike to the Arch, needs few stops to rest and a lot of drinking water. Torch also needed after sunset when going back to the parking.

Overlooking Salt Lake City

This is my initial blog post for our visit to Utah. There will only be few places that we can visit as our time is limited.
No matter, we will still definitely visit the Arches or yet just the Delicate Arch.

But for now we took the chance to taking images of Salt Lake City.

As always, we did our research. My friend and I were so confident that things will go as planned. As you know and probably most of you did experienced the same way, when unexpected events happens along the way. Our case, first flight to Houston got delayed for an hour, as a result, our luggage never made it to its connecting flight to SLC. Had to follow us on the next flight. We can’t shoot without gears. We waited for 2 hrs for the luggage to arrive. As soon as we had our things, head straight to our destination. Unfortunately along our way, our supposed to be exit was closed due to an accident, rerouted and added few more minutes of driving. We were running against time before it gets totally dark. As we reached the trail-head, the old trail was closed and had to go around. Very short hike but the slop is very steep. Took us more time than calculated. We still have our hopes up and without any time wasted as we reached the summit, we mounted our gears and took few shoots.

The view was worth a hike..

We made it.

Parking is available on the side road. Although the trail is not that long but having water with you is helpful.
Bring torchlight if planning of going down after sunset. You do not want to walk in the dark.

All New York City

New York City.

Yes, New York City again. I know.

We’ve been working for almost a month now near the city. I admit, there are still beautiful locations where I haven’t visited yet to get a really good look of the City.

Below are some of the images I took and mentioned as well where I took them, that way for anybody who wanted to know will have an idea and will be guided.

Big apple beneath the bridgeGeorge Washington Bridge – Most people call it GW bridge.
A little about the bridge. Crosses Hudson river. One side at Fort Lee, NJ and one side close to Fort Washington, NY.
It is 83 year old. It has an upper and a lower level.
Construction started on 1927. Upper level was opened on 1931 while the lower level was opened on 1962.
So far as of today it is the busiest bridge in the world.
This image was taken at Ross Dock Picnic Area – New Jersey.


The City that never sleepsNew York City Skyline.
Image taken at Hamilton Park – Weehawken, NJ
One of the best places to spend if you want to witness how beautiful New York City is once the sun is out.

It is not as overwhelming compared to being at Hamilton Park. This place is, I would say, the lower level of the theatre.
But still a beautiful place to be at after sunset.

Florida Cityscapes

It was not my first visit to Florida but it was for the City of Tampa. My second in Miami. Never had the chance taking photos of Miami when I first visited. I had my camera repaired that time.

This time, sadly, we are off with our timing. Sun had totally set when we reached to our spot. We were supposed to be on time but we were kind of detoured to eat Peruvian food, we thought it was Cuban actually, but it turned out it was Peruvian. Well, I guess we need to go back one day and get that shot again.

As for Tampa, I was alone that time and I knew it would rain. When I got to my spot, there was no sign of clouds at all, but the forecast says it would rain. As you know, Tampa quite like that. Thunderstorm comes and goes. So I expected that any time soon rain would start pouring. And it did, eventually. But I had my shots, I got wet but quite satistied.

Windy City – Chicago

I’d say, Chicago is one of the best Cities in the United States. Although I can’t say much about it’s night life, but I am pretty sure it would also be exciting. I’ve been here several times but stillĀ I haven’t got enough of it. There will still be more.

As always, presenting on what I had taken during my visit.
