2011 TRAVELS - YEAR IN REVIEW

In early February 2011, I returned to Maui and Molokai to gather additional material for what was rapidly becoming one of my niche stock portfolio.



In May, I partnered with Ron Flickinger to shoot Santorini Island in the Agean Sea.
For 5 days I walked up and down the steep alleyways of Oia Village, hauling my heavy camera bag and tripod.









We flew back to Athens, then Rome and caught a train to La Spezia to spend 5 days in Cinque Terre





In June, Patricia and I flew to Montreal for a cousin's wedding. We then drove to Maine and spent a couple of nights in Bar Harbor, exploring Acadia N.P.





In July, I had a productive trip with partner Charles Wood, researching and shooting locations for future editions of my books














In September, I spent two weeks on my own on a highly productive trip to Europe.
I worked extremely hard on this trip, which required a lot of focus and effort, as well as a lot of driving. I began in France, covering Normandy, Giverny, Alsace and Annecy.
