The Thunder Moon, Misty and Mystical

I hadn’t wanted a misty moonrise, but I am oh so glad nature changed my mind. In 2006 I was still lugging around a few film cameras that could capture what my first little 2MP point-and-shoot digital could not. I’d been working with a number of local and larger land conservation groups for years and […]

July Nature Desktop Calendar: Headed for the Beach

July calls for something summery and I decided to turn to one of my favorite whimsical photos of the beach. Seagulls are rarely this organized, but they certainly looked amusing marching in unison. Really, I wouldn’t mind at all if I was marching with them on the beach. Taken on Hilton Head Island, SC when […]

At Least Someone is Happy About the Rain

In the middle of a heat wave, a downpour can actually be quite welcome. Huge raindrops began smacking into everything, just a few, then more, and within minutes the din was deafening and I could barely see across the street with lots of thunder rolling through the valley. Pretty scary for a while, but then […]

Morning Brilliance For Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on a perfect sunny May morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. […]

Featured Gallery: Dramatic Light

It’s just a year since that incredible morning, March 10, when I raced to capture the sun breaking through heavy clouds after a snow and ice storm the night before. When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each branch and twig in the tree outside my window I […]

New Photo Gallery, “I Chased A Sunset”

Racing over acres of the park to watch the sun drop below the far horizon, the bare silhouetted trees, the perfect shading in the sky from violet through red to yellow, the violet snow, the final fiery red blaze before it all faded—and all nature made, I was only there to record it. Really, on […]

Front Line Advancing, Lost My Marbles

I had a great time photographing this bunch of marbles and I took so many playing around with angles and focal depth. This image looks like the marbles are pressing forward for action. I found this bunch of marbles in the soil of a yard where I lived years ago. None is valuable, but are […]
