Today was almost like going home day. We visited Rocky Mountain National Park. My wife and I met in Colorado and Meg chose to go to school here as well, so it allowed us to visit, revisit, and create new favorite places and friends.
What 12K mile road trip would be complete without a few dives!
While getting fitted for a Madiera wreck dive in Lake Superior, we heard the rumble of thunder. The storm location and hour drive north of Duluth, MN provided a beautiful day and dive.

On the road again: through the State of 10,000 Lakes – up to Voyageurs National Park. As we begin to view a few of our National Parks, we are awed by the variety of these treasures that our forefathers provided to us. Voyageurs: 500 miles of untouched coastline....
Understanding camera settings, like we discussed in Digital Photography Tips Part 2, is fundimental. However, there are things out there that can enhance your images, and those are filters and software.
Our memories are the stories of us. They’re the bridge to our past that links us to our grandparents, parents, siblings, children, grandchildren, and friends. Like treasured heirlooms, our memories teach us that the bonds of family and friendship need to be cherished above all else. Sharing those memories enriches our lifeby bringing us closer to our loved ones.
It is a hard life, but we took it upon ourselves to take off to a beautiful tropical location so we can help you get great vacation photos.
Our goal is to help you find out which phone or camera is best for your vacation photos, with particular focus on the feature that attracts much of the attention . . . taking them into the water — many without the necessity of additional waterproof protection.
Adventure cameras and cell phones that can go into the water are what drew the attention of the two of us. We both make our livings in jobs that involve cameras in water, so we tackled the challenge of comparing lots of these devices to help you make a more informed choice.
In preparation for the vacation season and summer fun, Vivid-Pix and professional photographer and instructor, Sandy Sondrol, went to a tropical paradise and tested more than a dozen smartphones, camera, and underwater housings to help you get better vacation photos.

As you dig into your personal cache of treasured holiday memories, here are a few ways you can bring the spirit of Christmas to life using old photos.
As Charles Dickens showed us in his classic novella A Christmas Carol, reflecting on memories of holidays past can help guide us on our path to creating joyful memories in our present and future. Whether it's looking back on the Christmastime of our youth, exploring the holidays of our parents and grandparents, or even reliving the celebrations of a bygone era, photos are the gateway to the spirit of Christmas past.
Nov. 11 is a day that we reflect and give thanks for our brave military heroes.
Every year on Nov. 11, millions of people across the U.S. take time to reflect and give thanks to the countless Americans over the centuries who have fought bravely for our country in times of war, kept the peace, and engaged in humanitarian efforts as well. At Vivid-Pix, the activity to remember and honor our military heroes has particular significance: CEO Rick Voight is father to an active-duty daughter, and as a company, we take the greatest pride in supporting veterans' service organizations. Part of this includes volunteering and donating to the Patriots for Disabled Divers organization, a group of volunteers who work with scuba diving centers and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors to help physically and psychologically affected patriots when they come home.
