The Great American Eclipse of 2017

Like most of us, I was eager to see the eclipse. I was fortunate to be able to travel to Oregon for a viewing in “totality”. Before I discuss the photograph that I took, I first want to stress in the strongest possible terms what an amazing experience it was. The only way to convey […]

The allure of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge

While I would not consider this photo to be an artistic masterpiece, it does convey all of the things that make Bosque del Apache such an amazing place. The colors that I witnessed there, at both sunrise and sunset, are second to none. The conditions also varied every day, making for new opportunities to capture […]

“Abstract-ish” wave photos

One of my goals when I recently traveled to Oregon was to produce some images of waves that would be displayed in panoramic formats. I ended up with two that I like and they are good examples of how playing around with a scene can yield different and pleasing results by changing key settings. First, […]

Cannon Beach is famous for its “haystacks”, large rocks that sit squarely in the middle of the surf, dominating the beach like sentinels. I was out one […]

Cloudlight

When I visited White Sands National Monument early last December, in the few hours I was there, I was fortunate to have very unsettled skies that produced a variety of light and color to complement the incredible canvas of the sand itself. This image is probably the best illustration of the conditions. I had hiked […]

Puffins!

This past week, my son, my girlfriend’s son, and I were treated to an amazing experience. We spent a few hours on Machias Seal Island, New Brunswick, observing razorbills, murres, terns, a lone Northern Gannett, and puffins, as well as seeing the fully functioning lighthouse. The trip was operated out of Cutler, Maine by Bold Coast […]

A second look

I periodically go back and scroll through my image library in Adobe Lightroom. Sometimes it’s because I’m trying to find something particular and, at other times, I am just taking a stroll. I was strolling recently and came across this image. I had written about it in a different post and while I liked it […]

Afternoon Crags at Red Rock Canyon

During my trip west a couple of months ago, I flew into and out of Las Vegas. One of the main reasons for this was knowing that Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area sits just west of the city, practically abutting the western edges of Las Vegas. I was able to spend one afternoon and […]
