View from my beachside cabana this week at Magnificent Rock, Nicaragua. Sun, surf, yoga, salsa, repeat. It’s been a week to challenge myself in new adventures – learning to surf over a reef has been one of the most challenging sports I’ve experienced. Successfully pushing past the fear to the exhilaration of riding my first wave to the shore, the magic of watching the sunset over the sea as the full moon rose, & the adrenalin of successfully catching a larger wave were rewards well worth the effort.
2014 was an exceptional year with travels overseas leading photography workshops and editorial / commercial assignments & in Burma, Laos, Costa Rica, Maui, Okanagan, British Columbia & Iceland.
In addition, my first documentary film, THE NOBLE SPIRIT was completed and begun the film festival circuit. My fourth wine book, SPECTACULAR WINERIES OF OREGON was published. I also had the pleasure of woking with the best creative team I’ve experienced for a series of videos and photos for the Washington Wine Commission (stay tuned for release in 2015).
THANK YOU for sharing the adventures with me!
