I’ve got nearly a full group and everyone is getting excited to photograph the wintering bald eagles. The weather also looks to be ready for a great time with the eagles … temperatures will be cold, but will certainly […]

2015 Faves, Part 2




Another fun experience in 2015 was my trip to the Platte River in Nebraska, in early spring to photograph the migrating Sandhill Cranes. I always enjoy a 3-4 day trip to the Platte River, where there can be several hundred thousand cranes and, if lucky, you might even spot a Whooping Crane in the crowd! […]

Fun Friday: Me, and My Shadow




Today’s Fun Friday post comes from 2014, while photographing in the beautiful Myakka River at Myakka River State Park in Florida. This image was captured late in the afternoon, as sunset was starting to occur. I love photographing the critters on the Myakka River at sunrise and sunset … the river takes on the beautiful […]

Brrrr … Early Morning Hike




After my early morning shoot of the “near Venus-Moon occultation”, I decided to hike around the prairie and see what was going on. One thing for sure, it was quite cold! Temperatures were just below freezing and everything was looking like a winter wonderland. Not a lot of wildlife activity, but here are some early […]

It Doesn’t Get Any Better!




Today’s post comes from second trip to a blind at Rowe Sanctuary, on the Platte River in Nebraska. This blind visit was on my last evening on the Platte River and I still had one goal that hadn’t been reached … to capture cranes flying in front of the sun, or in front of a […]

Rowe Blind, Part 2




Following up on yesterday’s post, where Sandhill Cranes were returning to the Platte River to roost (“Rowe Blind, Part 1”), today’s post features images captured just minutes later, when the sun was below the horizon and the sky filled not only with beautiful sunset colors, but thousands of cranes: Through these images, the cranes were […]

Rowe Blind, Part 1




One of the highlights of photographing Sandhill Cranes along the Platte River is photographing from one of the Rowe Sanctuary blinds. The blinds are located right on the Platte River and usually gives one a front seat to a wonderful morning, or evening with the cranes as they either leave the river (mornings) or return […]

First Morning on the Platte River




I’m a little behind with posting from the Platte River, but been very busy capturing images of the Sandhill Cranes and some awesome sunrises/sunsets. Today I’m taking a “short work day” so I can get caught up and try to get a few posts prepared ahead of time, for the next few days. I’m sure […]
