Fun Friday: The Sentries




Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an image I captured during my recent wintering Whooping Crane photography trip to the Aransas NWR, located along the Texas Gulf Coast. As our boat slowly scoured the shoreline for bird activity, we came upon this pair of adult Whooping Cranes who seemed to saying, “You watch that way, and […]

Whooping Cranes – First Encounter




Beginning today, my posts will feature the results of removing one of my “Bucket List” wildlife encounters … photographing our endangered whooping cranes (aka “whoopers”) while wintering along the Texas’ Gulf Coast.

Color on the Platte River




This post is being re-published from the spring of 2012. I am currently involved with a unique photography project that will take me 1-2 weeks. During this time, I will likely be on social media very little. I have set up a few posts to “self-publish” to my website blog; if/when time allows, I will […]

Faves of 3Q 2016




Third Quarter 2016 was photographically slow starting out. My wife had just passed and I was busy taking care of her estate. And at that time, my desire to get out and photograph was at a new, all-time low. But after a lot of soul searching, I knew I had to return to what was […]

Faves of 1Q 2016




Finally, 2016 is behind us and in the books! For me, 2016 was a mixed bag. I had some awesome travels and some great photo opps in the year. But 2016 was also a very rough time; midway through the year, I lost my traveling companion and best friend, my wife of nearly 18 years. […]

Pssst … Did You Hear ….?




While shooting in Arches NP, just a few miles into the park stands an interesting rock formation called “Three Gossips”. As most of the arches I was photographing were further into the park, I must have passed these “gossipers” fifty times! And each time, I would always wonder what they were talking about! Especially at […]

Sand Dune Arch




On my last morning in Arches National Park (Utah), I tried to find as many arches as I could, that I hadn’t seen or photographed during my night shoots there. One of those was Sand Dune Arch. Following a 1/4-mile trail, I ended up walking in heavy sand … kinda reminded me of walking the […]

Double Your Fun!




On my last night in Arches National Park, I visited Double Arches for some night photography. Double Arch is so named as there are two arches that conjoin each other. It really is a spectacular sight at night. On this evening, the sky began as a clear, cloudless sky. But about an hour or so […]
