Fun Friday: Foggy Double Vision




Today’s “Fun Friday” post features a pair of adult Whooping Cranes foraging in the early morning fog that fell over Aransas NWR, captured during my recent trip to photographic the endangered whoopers on their wintering grounds along the Texas Gulf Coast: Coming up … more Whoopers and other, water-loving birds. Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 5D […]

How Foggy Was it?




Good to get back to blogging. Last week I had issues with my satellite internet (my daily “allowance” seemed to just fade away into the big, black hole, and had to stay off the internet until the service company could get it back on track), then my last art show of the year, from Thursday […]

Fun Friday: Lost in the Fog




When the “F-bomb” (fog) came up during Wednesday night’s weather forecast, I decided to take Rubber Ducky out for a little kayak trip on Thursday morning. As far as wildlife, not a lot of action, but will share a few in a subsequent post. But the foggy landscape was quite surreal. As I headed out […]

Fun Friday: A Typical Morning!




Wednesday evening, the local weathermen forecast Thursday morning, using the F-bomb twice … Frost and Fog. Anytime these are forecast, it’s time to set the alarm clock for an early morning of nature photography! So, like a good little nature photographer, I set out all my equipment … camera, tripod, batteries, cards, long underwear, coat, […]

In A Fog




This interesting sunrise, captured through a heavy fog over Amarugia Creek in Amarugia Highlands CA in west-central Missouri, is from a few years ago in late fall: One of the things I like about this image is it’s simplicity. Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot at […]

Sky Ablazin’




(This post originally published in October 2010) My last kayak outing was a wonderful morning. Not only was I able to capture some nice Wood Duck (Aix sponsas) flight shots, but an incredible sunrise developed right in front of my eyes. First, there was some unexpected fog present as I launched the kayak into the […]

Yesterday in the Prairie Meadow (Re-post)




Just got home from a quick, 2-day photo trip to northwest Missouri’s Squaw Creek NWR, a very special place to visit … especially in the fall and spring bird migrations. The reason for the trip? How about 200+ Trumpeter Swans! I’ll post about the trip very soon … but I have to first download and […]

High Activity




If you read yesterday’s post “Simple Beauty”, I mentioned kayaking to check out a local population of American Beavers (Castor canadensis). With this year’s drought conditions, the water level is really low. In fact, most of the beaver lodge is now above water! Well, after photographing the great foggy landscapes for a while, I paddled […]

Simple Beauty




A few mornings ago, I took an early morning kayak trip at a nearby waterway, to check on a beaver population. I arrived ~45 minutes before sunrise and launched “Rubber Ducky” and headed toward the beaver lodge. This morning was a great morning to be on the water. A bit on the “chilly” side (air […]

Minnesota – Split Rock Lighthouse (Re-post)




(This post originally published in August, 2010) Over the past week, I have been photographing in Minnesota. My wife’s family had a family reunion this past weekend and we decided to travel several days prior to the reunion, so that I could photograph some of the landscapes and wildlife on the trip. The first day […]
