Oregon-based landscape/travel photographer Stuart L. Gordon recently completed an 11.5 month journey that took him, his camera and his family to 22 countries before returning to their home in the Pacific Northwest
"It was a lifetime bucket list that took just shy of a year to complete," said Gordon, whose photographic prints have been exhibited in a NYC gallery and can be found in the homes and offices of private collectors and fine art aficionados.
"There's no way I can describe all the magical moments we experienced visiting places like Iceland, Patagonia, Milford Sound, Okavango Delta, Abel Tasman, The Great Ocean Drive, The Garden Route, the Swiss Alps, the Western Fjords of Norway, the Ecuadorean rainforest, Galapagos and Machu Picchu."
The trip started June 16, 2014 in Reykjavik, Iceland and ended more than 11 months later in Turks & Caicos.
Now Gordon says he faces the daunting task of curating some 8,000 photographs and editing the best of the best.
