Thriving in the Wilderness

It feels nearly impossible to stop looking at this one photograph in Vlad Donkov’s Stories portfolio. Rows of white wooden crosses in the foreground. Flowers and stones lovingly arranged at the base of each one. Splayed over the mountains and water in the background is a spectacular orange and yellow sunset mingled with charcoal gray clouds. The interview with this outdoor photographer and wilderness travel specialist must begin here, with the story of this cemetery at sunset. “How do you know it is not a sunrise (laughing)?” Donkov writes via email from Malta. “There’s no way of knowing, really, it’s

Life as Vacation

Craig Zabransky is on the verge of taking in a Mile Marker 88 sunset, Upper Florida Keys, as we begin to wind down our telephone interview. “It will be a prime one,” he tells me. He’s clearly jazzed. Days later I go to his website, StayAdventurous.com, and click on the Sunday Sunsets Map so I can sneak a peek. It is a doozy. The fiery sun hanging out in hues of orange and black. “A sunset is a universally shared moment,” says Zabransky, a global management consultant-turned-travel writer. And share them he does.
