Italy pulls you in, and makes you feel welcomed and relaxed. As I went to explore the shores of Lake Como, in Bellagio I was drawn into the landscape and the sparkling waters that were being enjoyed by this family below. No matter what the time of day, there’s always some magic on Lake Como. #italy #lakecomo #bellagio #moments #landscape #lakelife #water #family #inspired

On this day in 1697 one of Italy’s greatest painters was born, Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. His paintings have inspired generations, and were daily inspiration when we created the Day to Night Venice photographs. Canaletto is known for his extraordinary cityscapes capturing intimate city views of Venice. In honor his birthday, I wanted to share my photograph of Campanile di San Marco, Venice. Thrilled to have this image appear on this month’s cover of the photography issue of @travelandleisure. #travelandleisure #canaletto #italy #venice #painting #art #photography #daytonight #stephenwilkes #birthday #campaniledisanmarco

Here is a series of photographs from a current exhibition of artist Dale Chihuly’s work @nybotanicalgarden . I loved this exhibition by @chihulystudio. Seeing great art, inevitably leads to inspiration. I found myself captivated by the energy his pieces imbued on the natural flora and fauna. These images reflect that energy. Looking forward to seeing this exhibition at night! #chihuly #nybotanicalgarden #nyc #art #inspiration #newyork #glass #sculpture #multipleexposure #iphone

This photograph is part of my recent Tapestry series. The image was created shooting in camera multiple exposures of fleeting elements. They are moments in time that create a sense of place. Although these images have a spontaneous quality, I’m actually pre-visualizing the final layered image as I photograph. The end result recreates a sense of my personal experience in that moment. This image was taken on a recent trip to Lake Como in Northern Italy, where I explored the unique elements of the lake water surrounded by stunning mountains. #tapestry #italy #lakecomo #mountains #fall #stephenwilkes #photography #nature #fall #travel #water #moments #incamera

A lake is a place for reflection. The stunning mountains that frame this seemingly endless lake, are constantly changing ones impressions of scale. This mirrored view is from within Villa Carlotta overlooking Lake Como, Italy. #lakecomo #water #italy #reflection #villacarlotta #iphoneonly

Traveling through Africa this past July, I was drawn to the light one evening as we drove to Nairobi. The warm late afternoon light enhanced the captivating landscape, especially the green wall of this hotel and pub. This image is part of my “Drive By” series, photographs of fleeting moments taken while traveling in a moving car. #africa #nairobi #sunset #light #color #photography #kenya #stephenwilkes #stephenwilkesphotography #pub #africanamazing #drivebyphoto #moment
