Wow Kara! Stephen has quite a collection! And your blog is very informative. You have been to some great places!
I can’t choose a print – they are all beautiful. (I’ll pick one if I win..)

Aijung Kim October 13, 2009 at 7:59 am

ooh, so hard to decide. but i really like #2272 of the white pelicans (so beautiful the softness of the pink light on the river and the whiteness of their feathers) and #9896 of Machu Picchu – who can resist those mountains? i have to keep browsing the photos because there’s so many of them!

karen c. October 13, 2009 at 8:15 am

What great photos! I’ve been to some of the places so they are fun to revisit, many, many places are new to me. Your photos make me want to go explore them. I’m torn between #75 and #15435. But I think if I won I’d choose #275 for my daughter whose anniversary is on the 4th of July.

Sue S. October 13, 2009 at 8:40 am

Wow! Great Photos, so many to choose from. My favorites are 2870, 3046 and 12387.
If I win you can pick either of the three and I will be happy. Of course the ones of the baby kangaroo’s are just adorable and that would be okay also. So many beautiful pictues makes me want ot get my camera out and shoot away. My birthday is coming up and what a great present!

Carol Pierce Gordon October 13, 2009 at 10:20 am

I’m thinking of #17231 or #17278 for Uncle Ken for Christmas as he “loves” the Grand Canyon. He still works for the Forest Service here in Tallahassee, Florida, but would love to visit there sometime. He teaches a Sunday School class on Creation verses Evolution and these pictures would really be an asset for teaching about the Flood! Take care, Love, Aunt Carol

Julie DeGroot October 13, 2009 at 11:41 am

Your work is amazing! So very hard to chose, I would have to say since I just love nature and birds I would love to hang Belding’s savannah sparrow, Photo #1306 in my home. Julie

egater October 13, 2009 at 12:02 pm

My favorite is Photo #5434
Ok, Photo #1505 and Photo #198 and Photo #1592 and Photo #1603 would make me very happy too :)

tarsh October 13, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Oh, wow, those are some amazing photos. I’m having difficulty choosing between 10033, 1306, and 9987 right now! In the unlikely event I win, can I come to a decision then? (In fact I may well have to come back and buy one or two anyway once I get back from holidays!)

Now off to read the Bhutan entries…

Tanya October 13, 2009 at 12:07 pm

What a great collection of photography .. It wasn’t easy to pick just one But I really love Photo #5985

Connie October 13, 2009 at 12:38 pm

Congratulations, Steve & Kara, on your complementary talents, artistry, vision, curiosity and lively sense of adventure. Truly magnificent.

Two very favorite images:
#14228 sleeping baby variegated squirrel
# 1592 little pied cormorant

Heather October 13, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Oh wow. I love the look of the Machu Pichu picture. Photo #9896

But the Thor’s Hammer picture in Utah was quite tempting too!

Janelle October 13, 2009 at 1:49 pm

I really don’t know how you expect us to pick just one… there are so many photos that took my breath away! Since we love Chicago so much, I’ll pick #10534, but, really, I couldn’t say which one was my favorite!

I’ve really enjoyed reading your travel blog, too!

Angelica October 13, 2009 at 2:13 pm

I have the perfect place for picture #8035 if I win… WHEN I win :) Always an LA girl at heart! I’ve read parts of your blog – your writing style is very personal and I like that! I went to the silent movie theatre for the first time last year, and I thought about you. Hello to Stephen (he takes great pics!).

kelly October 13, 2009 at 5:39 pm

Kara, it is like choosing which one is the most beautiful child…they’re all truly amazing. I am very partial to trees though and those are whispering to me right now…stunning.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this one-
Will Rogers Memorial Park. Beverly Hills, California, USA
Photo #7867
So many luscious images…

Casey October 13, 2009 at 11:11 pm

Wow. What talent. Will choose a photo if I am the lucky winner : ) \

BTW, loved both websites!

Mikko October 14, 2009 at 3:40 am

Gorgeous mahjong pictures. #17180 is my favourite (17186 is better, but it gets blurry a bit too steeply for my tastes). Thanks, lovely contest!

Francesca Ivy October 14, 2009 at 3:50 am

fascinating photos. I love the photo sets under Australia, Costa Rica & Peru.

It’s hard to choose but I finally picked this one:
Machu Picchu, Peru.
Photo #10117

I’m amazed with this stunning structure.

I also posted this giveaway via twitter (@ivanulrich)

Thanks for sharing. :)

alexandra October 14, 2009 at 5:27 am

oh my gosh!i went through all those gorgeous photos and had such a very hard time choosing!they were all so beautiful!
but in the end if i would have to pick one photo as my print if i do win (fingers crossed) i would pick Photo #9896 ..i don’t know why but every time i look at it, it just takes my breath’s so magical it’s hard to believe it a place like that is really reminds me of those wondrous places you find in fantasy stories. :)

Jennie Nelson October 14, 2009 at 6:58 am

I love #1764, makes me think of the road less traveled! :)

Vel October 14, 2009 at 9:09 am

Wow, what amazing photography! He’s quite a talented photographer. If I had to choose I think I’d pick this gorgeous sky – #14273. Thanks for the opportunity!

Toni Brown October 14, 2009 at 9:42 am

I’m dumbstruck by his photography … sent the link to my Dad (also a photographer) … meanwhile, the photo I LOVE is #9971 Entrance gate to Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu (background). Machu Picchu, Peru.

Thank you for this amazing introduction to his work, and the chance to own a print.

Danielle October 14, 2009 at 9:48 am

I could not pick a favorite, but I really like the Baby sea Turtle reaches the Carribean Sea #14034.

Piroska October 14, 2009 at 10:07 am

Amazing photographs. My fave is The Bald Eagle –Photo #2509

Debbie L October 14, 2009 at 1:23 pm

Thank you for this wonderful and generous offer to win print #11947. Your work is utterly gorgeous and I wish you the very best success!

Debbie L

(PS Thank you for the email instructing me what to do… sorry, I didnt read your instructions more carefully! :D)

Susan G October 14, 2009 at 4:58 pm

It was difficult to pick a favorite. There were so many amazing photographs. The animal and flower photographs were amazing, but I think my favorite was Photo #1609. I think that is the most beautiful bird I’ve ever seen.

Donna H October 14, 2009 at 11:19 pm

The photographs are all absolutely breath taking. I just spent the good part of two hours arm chair traveling thanks to them. They really are beautiful. Steve has a fantastic eye. Choosing 1 is, to say the least, a herculean task. #1599 caught me with his relaxed pose. Though all the Macchu Picu pics made me want to book a flight asap. The baby turtle shots were also beckoning. Very hard choice. Thanks for the opportunity. I love both your sites.

D in FL :D

Melissa N. October 15, 2009 at 12:02 am

It was so hard to pick! I loved so many of them, but I think I narrowed it down to #3925 (Westminster Hall Cemetary door)

Donna Hartt October 15, 2009 at 4:03 am

I read about your website and my curiostiy brought me here. I love all the photos. Awesome work! I live in Chicago, and have always wanted a photo shot of my wonderful city (besides my collection of postcards). When I moved here, my spirit sprouted wings! I could not afford to purchase a photo such as these, so I am hoping to be the lucky winner, as the photo would be sent to me in an unexpected form. Photo #10644, Chicago Skyline at Sunrise speaks to my heart. Thank you for your generous offer. donna hartt

Elizabeth (Beth) H. October 15, 2009 at 7:55 am

Kara, this is a great site. Stephen’s photos a lovely.

I’d choose Photo #19584, which is from my hubby’s Colin’s hometown. He loves First Nation art.

Beth Howard

Bonnie October 15, 2009 at 8:14 am

Love them all! You are so lucky to have visited such amazing places! #83155 is a great pic though and perfect for my kitchen. Although maybe if I chose the pic of one of the cities, people would think I’m as well traveled as you.

Vicki Wurgler October 15, 2009 at 11:39 am

I like the sunset Amazon Peru-Photo #8893

Aysegul October 16, 2009 at 7:13 am

You have a great site here. Thanks for visiting my blog so that I found yours. Welcome back from Bhutan.. and as for the photos. I just fell in love with that flower holding wallaby..

Kei October 16, 2009 at 8:18 am

What great pictures! I think I would like Photo #19264 the most . . . it’s moving to me.

Just wanted to let you know that I added your contest to and hopefully more people find your blog.

Melanie @ Whimsical Creations October 16, 2009 at 1:37 pm

Melissa October 16, 2009 at 2:22 pm

I love Dahlia Photo #4389, it would look fantastic in my dining room!

Rebecca October 16, 2009 at 6:43 pm

What lovely photographs! I like the ones from Canyon de Chelly. I think they really capture the majesty of the place (I once spent a blissful day hiking up and down the Baby Trail there). Picture #18435 in particular gives you a feel for just how enormous and expansive the canyon is. I love it!

Stephanie October 16, 2009 at 8:32 pm

This is AMAZING photography! It was so hard to pick just one! But I’d have to pick #7876, of the gate at Paramount Studios. *sighs* Dreams!

Roxy October 18, 2009 at 12:44 am

At the moment i chose the Clouds over the Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon NP, Arizona.
Photo #17320

janil October 18, 2009 at 6:18 am

I love the eagle!!! (2510)

Linda Richardson October 18, 2009 at 7:01 pm

I would like the 6th picture of Kara because she is beautiful. In that picture she looks alot like my daughter, her cousin Brenda. All the pictures are fantastic and can see her husband is a very talented photographer.

Chacoy Aguayo October 18, 2009 at 10:29 pm

Wow, absolutely breathtaking, I really liked the orange clouds from the sunset at the Grand Canyon #177330. Thank you for reminding us of the beauty that is in our back yards :)

Aik October 19, 2009 at 12:55 am

I love the Bennett’s wallaby. Red-necked wallaby. Micropus rufogiseus. (Photo #5433)

Sue G. October 19, 2009 at 9:04 am

Too many beautiful photos to choose as a favorite, they all are my fave. If I win, I will then decide. Good luck everyone.
