Colorful BC

Today’s post features a couple of sunset images I captured on an Orca adventure photo outing in British Columbia (Canada), in fall of 2008. While docked one evening, this wonderful sight brought an end to another wonderful day with lots of whales, and even some black bears! Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Today’s post features an image I captured yesterday in our Lake of the Ozarks (MO) butterfly garden: In fall, we planted ~40 crocus bulbs, to give us early color in our butterfly garden. After receiving about 2-inches of snow yesterday, I spent some time this morning photographing this early riser.   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon […]

Fall Colors in Alaska

Today’s post features a couple of images captured during one of my Alaska trips, when fall colors began to emerge along the highway from Anchorage to Homer, Alaska, in early September 2007. This first image was an unexpected surprise … while traveling on the highway, I rounded a corner and this beautiful, mountain scene unfolded […]

How’s the Weather Up There?

Today’s post features another image from one of my Alaska trips (2006). During one of our Alaska, small boat cruises, we were with brown bears at Windfall Harbor. As we pulled our boat into the harbor area, this adult brown bear stood up to check out his competition ahead, at the creek where salmon were […]

Fun Friday: Inquisitive!

Today’s post features a very inquisitive squirrel. One day, while photographing along a creek in the Amarugia Highlands CA (Missouri), I felt as if someone or something was watching me. Looking up, this curious little fellow was watching me photograph some ducks that were in the creek:   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 10D body Canon […]

Can You Feel it in the Air?

Today’s post features 3 images I captured along a creek in the Amarugia Highlands Conservation Area (Missouri) a few years ago. In spring, I love to hike and kayak rural creeks and streams. Often, warblers that migrate into the area are so cheerful.  Makes me have “cabin fever” to go back and experience these outings […]

Growing Into Adulthood

Today’s post features a couple of images I found while editing some of my older images. I have been fortunate to visit Alaska’s Chilkat River Valley (near Haines, Alaska) a couple of times. During one of my trips, I captured these 2 images of a young adult Bald Eagle. As you can see, it is […]

Your January Eye Test

Today’s post features an image I captured a few years ago, as I photographed Bald Eagles along the Chilkat River in Alaska, during their late season gathering for a late salmon run in the river. When editing this image, I wondered exactly how many eagles were in this photograph, so I took the time to […]

Out of the Blue

Today’s post comes from the now defunct Hallo Bay Bear Camp, located along the Katmai National Park coast, near Kodiak Island in Alaska. I have traveled to this exceeding beautiful location many times over the years … until the camp owner passed and the land went back into the hands of the National Park Service. […]

Midnight Adventure

Today’s image was captured from my cabin deck in Little Tutka Bay, Alaska, in 2007. When this image was captured (around midnight), the sun was just beginning to “set”: Little Tutka Bay is about a 30-minute boat ride from Homer, Alaska. From this location, I spent several trips photographing bald eagles, exploring the low tide […]
