The Art of Seeing

When you are out in nature, do you often miss some interesting details in the view in front of you?  It’s easy to do. For some time now, I’ve been working on seeing things a bit differently … trying to identify exactly what caused me to take a double-take … looking for interesting details in […]

Below the Falls

On one of my many recent hikes in Glacier NP (Montana), I hiked to Virginia Falls. Just a very short distance below the falls, was this peaceful scene, with a single Aster wildflower plant gently blowing in the light breeze, in front of some cascades: This is a focus-stacked image, combining two separate images. One […]

Why I Love Mountain Hikes

Today’s post features an image I captured along the Hidden Lake trail (no, this is not the Hidden Lake) as I hiked in Logan Pass, Glacier NP recently. How can anyone not fall in love with the mountains after experiencing a breath-taking view like this! This image was captured during one of my two sunrise […]

St. Mary Falls

While in Glacier NP recently, I did a lot of hiking. One morning I decided to hike the trail from St. Mary Lake to both the St. Mary waterfall and the Virginia waterfall. Today’s post features a couple of images I captured at the St. Mary waterfall: From here, I continued the uphill hike to […]

Sunrise Hike at Logan Pass

During my recent visit to Glacier NP, I hiked at least one trail about every day. I typically like to start out very early in the morning, when the landscape is just becoming visible to the eye. Why? Several reasons. First, a lot less people out there, so I have nature more to myself! Second, […]

Ya Know It’s Gonna Be a Great Day …

… When You Come Across a Beautiful Valley View Like This! After 3 days of photographing on the west side of Glacier NP, it was time to move to my eastern position for the remainder of the trip. To get there, I drove the wonderful “Going-to-the-Sun Road”. Seemingly high into the clouds, it is easy […]

Hazy Lake McDonald

Today’s post features a couple more images captured from the bank of Lake McDonald, in Glacier NP. With the hazy skies, it was difficult to capture good landscapes, while at the same time, the haze gave a bit of an eerie feeling to the lake: On the righthand side of the above image is beginning […]

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

When I recently traveled to Glacier National Park (northwest Montana), I was really looking forward to some great night skies photography. What I didn’t realize was that there were some nearby wildfires and they literally created havoc with any photography that included the sky or distant landscapes! That is, except … when shooting afternoon skies! […]

Kayaking the Myakka, Part 2

In this second part of my “Kayaking the Myakka”, I’m going to feature a few of the many alligator images I captured from the kayak. But before I share the gator images, here is an image I captured using my cell phone. I think you will see how peaceful it can be kayaking the Myakka […]

A Hike to “The Deep Hole”

During the first full day of my recent trip in Myakka River State Park, I got up early and headed to the park office to grab one of the cherished “backwoods permits”. The park has an undeveloped, wilderness area and only allows 30 people per day to hike into this pristine area. After obtaining my […]
