The five Rocketdyne F-1 first stage engines on the Saturn V moon rocket powered the vehicle for the initial 168 seconds of flight and managed to lift it 220,000 feet during this time. To lift the enormous weight of the rocket and all its fuel, they developed a combined thrust of over 7.5 million pounds. Prints of this image are available with widths between 36″ and 60″.

Chevron Building, Houston

Chevron Building, Houston

The collection of buildings at the corner of Smith & Bell in downtown Houston, Texas has been a favourite of mine for several years. This place epitomises the large American city skyline as far as I am concerned – tall skyscrapers covered in reflective glass panels. This junction also hosts a large, circular skywalk joining all four corners and offering a great frame when shooting upwards with a very wide-angle lens. For those interested in history, although this building is currently occupied by the Chevron oil company, it was originally built as the headquarters for Enron....

Waiting on Congress Avenue Bridge

Waiting on Congress Avenue Bridge

This shot, one of my favorites, was actually the result of a failed attempt to capture a photo of the bats leaving Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin during the summer of 2009. For some reason, the bats left about 20 minutes earlier than usual that night so, by the time I arrived and set up my camera, the ribbon of a million or so bats was nowhere to be seen.

Chicago Sunrise Panorama

Chicago, Illinois is one of my favorite cities. The downtown architecture is spectacular and could easily keep me occupied for a couple of weeks. This panorama was shot at sunrise on a very cold March morning when I was ill-prepared for the frigid wind off the lake. There was so much to shoot out on North Avenue Beach Pier but, after grabbing the panorama shots I wanted, I was too cold to stick around. I’ll have to get back there soon but remember to take gloves and a hat next time. Unfortunately, we can only ship gallery-wrapped prints up to 72″ wide but, if you would like a...

Bryce Canyon at Sunrise

Bryce Canyon at Sunrise

Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is magical with amazing colors and forms in the pillar-like hoodoos within the canyon. This shot was taken on a very cold, winter morning just after sunrise. Thank goodness for hand warmers! Unfortunately, we can only ship gallery-wrapped prints up to 72″ wide but, if you would like a larger version than this and can get to Austin to pick it up, let us know!. We can ship unstretched canvases larger than 72″ so, if this is of interest, drop us a line. Prints of this image are available with widths of up to 72″. Available Sizes 72" x...
