Well there isn’t a more picturesque place in the world than the fabulous island of Santorini, Greece.  This is a bucket list travel destination without a doubt.

Just after sunset the lighting is unbelievable!

The HOG World Tour spend a couple of days here on a photo safari.  My shutter finger is quite sore now.

Despite the unrest here in Greece with their financial crisis, tourists can still enjoy a vacation so long as they stay away from the rallies and areas shut down in Athens.

I had quite an enjoyable round yesterday at the Mountain Dell Canyon Course, between Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah in Emigration Canyon.  The Canyon course is one of two courses on the property, and the one I prefer.

I had some spectacular shots yesterday.  One was a punch 8-iron from under a tree in the right rough on the par-4 9th.  The ball ended up 12 inches.  Birdie.  The next one was a punch 9-iron from 145 (lots of wind), from a severe side-hill lie.  That 3rd shot on the par-5 14th astonishingly didn’t go in.  It must have lipped out for eagle.  The ball was TWO inches behind the hole.  Birdie.

I had some other fantastic shots after the round, via my golf aerial photo/video hexacopter drone.

While on vacation hiking and exploring southern Utah’s beautiful red rock country I stopped by with my aerial photo copter and caught a couple of pics of Sunbrook Golf Course in St. George, Utah.

The Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour made a quick stop to enjoy the very warm weather of Mesquite, Nevada this past weekend. After enduring the largest snowstorm of the year in Salt Lake, it was time to get out of dodge. The golf was a side-trip though, as I was in town to attend and honor a golf buddy and disabled Iraq war veteran at a local fundraiser.

This trip there was more than golf gear in the HOG Tour Van. Along for the ride this time was the big hexacopter (drone) I built for capturing photos and videos of golf courses from above. I managed to snap some nice pictures ahead of the morning groups Saturday, as well as some nice video clips like the par-5 5th hole video below.

Below is a photo of the par-4 6th hole which goes into a very cool desert canyon bowl.
