Mary’s Tomb in Jerusalem

In Cultural Photography, Further Lost, Landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The view from the bottom of the stairs at Mary’s Tomb; better known as Tomb of the Virgin, in Jerusalem is kinda creepy and a little interesting. I had entered that door at the top of the stairs maybe five minutes prior, and was promptly turned away when I got to this point. You see, I hadn’t checked the times …

Hills of Pillaro Ecuador

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This scene in the hills of Pillaro Ecuador is only a short drive up into the mountains outside of the city. I was looking for a spot to get a panoramic photo of the city. The top of the mountain was covered in fog so going higher up the mountain didn’t make sense. I didn’t know what was down this …

Weather Permitting

In Artistic Photography, Seasons, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I have been living in Northern Colorado for just over a year now. The sunsets here are comparable to anything at sea level. I’m sure I will eventually move from this location so I have to get the images while I can. This is a scene that I pass almost every day and every day that I pass this place …

Tinmel Mosque

In Landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Tinmel Mosque is a restored site on the Tizi n’Test pass road that goes south from Marrakesh Morocco into the Atlas Mountains. It’s so difficult to get a location all to yourself when you’re traveling to make photos. This was one of those locations that was recommended to me by the local guide I was traveling with, and not a …

Tincup Colorado

In Landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The idyllic mining town of Tincup Colorado is no longer a ghost town. It is under several feet of snow for about five months a year but that doesn’t keep people from building new cabins here and all down the valley. Many of the families who live here still hold mining claims in the Gunnison National Forest. This is a …

Northern Colorado Life

In Cultural Photography, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I have been living in Northern Colorado for almost a year now. I was expecting it to be very rural, cut off from the rest of the world, dusty and lonely. That’s what I remember from driving across Oklahoma and Texas and I just figured it would be like my memory of those places. Disclaimer: nothing against Oklahoma and Texas. …

Haunted Hotel

In Further Lost, Landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This haunted hotel is Hosteria La Cienega in Cotapaxi Ecuador. I have lots of photos of the interior of this place. It’s well preserved, the dining area is beautiful, the hotel is great for weddings. Yada yada; you can hear about all that on hundreds of travel websites. It’s true the staff is very polite and superbly dressed. The rooms …

Northern Colorado Landscape Dotted by Oil Derricks

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost, Landscape, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

An oil derrick is a common sight in the fields of Northern Colorado. I thought I’d give these nodding donkeys an apocalyptic feel just for fun. I don’t know how long I’ll live here so I’m capturing interesting scenes while I can. I know my photo publishing is all over the place. I’m working on organizing my library to pull …

Swamps of Magnolia Plantation

In Artistic Photography, Landmarks, Lost In Nature, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The Swamps of Magnolia Plantation were a lot more interesting than the gardens. Maybe that’s because I’m not from here so it was a unique scene for me? Come on, I can see a garden just about anywhere in the world, and thousands of people photograph flowers. Spanish Moss on the trees, bamboo stands blocking out the sun, a charming …

Approach to Prambanan

In Cultural Photography, International People, Landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The approach to Prambanan temples honestly feels like you’re entering a sort of amusement park. The temples in the distance look surreal and staged as if they were purpose built for tourists to climb on, over, under and through them. The entrance is beautifully landscaped and there are street vendors selling all manner of knick knacks. It feels like a …

Green Bay Indonesia – Teluk Hijau

In International People, Landmarks, Lost In Nature, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Green Bay Indonesia is a popular place for a local holiday on East Java Island. I was here on new year’s eve, but this wasn’t my destination. I was headed to Meru Betiri park when my driver; Rudy Hartono, pulled into a random parking area and didn’t tell me where we were going or why we were stopping here. He …

Probolinggo Indonesia

In Cityscapes, Landscape, Lost In Nature, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Probolinggo Indonesia. It’s not exactly a destination travel location. It’s not even the most exciting stop in East Java Indonesia. But this is what I’m looking for when I go out seeking photos and travel experiences. My driver stopped to get some lunch for himself and I took off down this path into the jungle. These villages can be found …
