Anthony Pierpont, Molokai Hawaii

We chose the Island of Molokai because it is one of the least visited Islands in the Hawaiian chain.
We found an amazing place that is undeveloped and beaches that secluded and private. We took dirt roads off the map and found some amazing trails and beaches where we did not see any one for hours. We went deep sea fishing and photographed some amazing species of fish. We found a great restaurant that cook your catch and had wonderful traditional music played by the locals.

Anthony Pierpont, Kauai North Shore adventure

It was the winter of 2004-2005 that I made my way over to Kauai to spend Christmas with my sister and her kids on what would turn out to be one of the best opportunities to take some great photos and so far some of the best I have taken. My favorite themes for good photos are sunsets, the ocean and anything tropical. My nephews showed me the island and it was such a wonderful experience to spend time with them all in this lush garden of Eden. Kauai is an amazing Island that is arid in the south and a lush rain forest in the north. Some of the best photos I took were on a hike we took along the Na Pali coastline where ancient Hawaiian boys would have to swim the treacherous coastline and if the survived the huge waves, jagged rocks and shark infested waters then they were considered men. This is one of my favorite places on earth.

Anthony Pierpont, May 2009 Hearst Castle tour

After spending time in Cambria we went on a tour of Hearst Castle. Built by the William Randolph Hearst the News paper mogul on 40,000 acres of land with an ocean view. Mr. Hearst imported most of the items for the castle from Europe via ship and build his own pier to bring in the heavy cargo.

Anthony Pierpont, Northern Minnesota Summer 2009

Jack, Shane and myself caught this one up on the Canadian border in the Voyageurs National Park.
We took the new boat out and had engine troubles and almost got lost in Canada. Cia and Shane came up from California to visit and had a great time.

Anthony Pierpont, Rainey Lake MN on the Canadian Border

Our trip to Lake Rainy with Scott and Robby was amazing. Lindy and I learned how to catch Wallie we photographed some amazing things. The boundary waters of Minnesota are some of the most amazing lakes in the world. Scott Schroder made the fishing experience off the hook! Scott taught us how to "Lindy rig" our minnows and we caught Walley. One day Scott took us to a river that runs into the lake and we took our boats up the river. Once we navigated the shallow waters full of logs and rocks we parked the boats and walked up to the rapids and caught a whole bunch of different fish which included the Small mouth bass Lindy, Scott and Robby are holding so proudly. Bait for the trip was mostly minnows on lindy rigs 30-40 down. The Small Mouth was caught on a Jig with a Rubber worm.
The Scenery was incredible and it was a National Geographic experience for sure.
