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! […]

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 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 […]

Sunset Over Big Salt Marsh




While photographing migrating birds at Quivira NWR (Kansas) last month, a wonderful sunset greeted us on our first evening. When the colors started to really “boil”, tons of birds began returning to the refuge for overnight roosting: It seems like the most awesome sunsets occur over National Wildlife Refuges. It makes especially pleasing photography whenever […]

Sunset Along Black Bear Pass




Our day spent along Black Bear Pass ended in some interesting sunset images. As sunset approached, it looked like we would not have much color in the skies. But at the last minute, we did get some interesting skies, particularly with the cloud cover that was present. Here are 6 images from the many I […]

A Badlands Sunset




My short, 2-day photography stop in the Badlands NP (South Dakota) was too short for me … I have been in love with this place for several years now and it always seems that each trip there is not enough time! Today’s post includes some HDR images of the Badlands landscapes, just before and during […]

A Beautiful Baja Sunset … With an Added Bonus




During my visits to Baja, at least a few beautiful sunrises and sunsets always seem to be guaranteed. And during my recent trip there, I was able to capture one awesome sunset, with a bonus … a photogenic and unmistakeable Magnificent Frigatebird (Fregata magnificens) wanted in on the fun, also. We were on the Sea […]

From Washington to Alaska, via the Scenic Route




Yesterday, I posted some images made along Alaska’s Inside Passage in winter. I had a good response from that post, along with some questions about the ferry. So, today I’m posting one more post about the ferry. I published this post a couple of years ago, but I’m re-publishing it today, along with a few […]
