This picture is of one of my good friends taking a leap off the Perkins Cove bell buoy last summer. While the buoy doesn't appear very large from the shore or from a boat, it is about 15-20 ft off the water and is quite a leap. Also, this picture was taken with my phone.

This picture is of harpooner pursuing a bunch of Bluefin tuna. It was taken this summer (2010) about 65 miles offshore. The harpooner, again, is my brother Chris Weiner. You can see the dorsal fin and tail of one of the Bluefin tunas in the bunch just ahead of Chris, the fish is about 300 lbs (7ft). (click image to enlarge)

This picture is of a swarm of mosquitos that was sitting above me and my friends' heads while we sat next to a lake in Hamilton, New Zealand. We didn't realize how many mosquitos were actually above us until I took this picture. (click image to enlarge)

This picture was taken just North of Lake Taupo at a Sulfuric Mudpool. This geothermal activity is a key component to New Zealand's electricity generation. While these mudpools look cool, they don't smell very good.
This picture was taken at an awesome little white-sand beach in the North Island of New Zealand. The is located in Tapotupotu Bay, hence the name Tapotupotu Beach. There was not a soul on the beach when our school group arrived and the weather was perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone taking a trip or traveling to go to New Zealand, it is quite a place.
This picture was taken at sunrise in Southwest Harbor in Downeast Maine. It was taken in the end of August from our mooring within the harbor. As one can see, a large fog bank sat outside the harbor. Fog is something not uncommon to the beautiful island of Mt. Desert. (Click image to enlarge)
