2018 Best Photos of the Year

The time has come to reflect back on the past year, and it's traditional to reflect back on it, and for photographers, to look through the images of the last year and start selecting favorites for the annual showing-off of your best/favorite images. For me, I...

Photo Friday: Turkey Vulture

In the U.S. it's the Thanksgiving holiday, and so today's picture is of... A Turkey Vulture, because I need better photos of the wild turkeys around this place. If you celebrate the holiday, I hope the food was good and the people you had the food with were fun and...

Black and White Photography

One of the things I keep telling myself I need to do is spend time converting a selection of my images to black and white and explore them as monochrome pictures. I cut my teeth as a new photographer with Black and White, shooting primarily Tri-X, and doing my own...

Bird Photography on the Fly….

The last few months have been chaotic, to put it mildly, with multiple trips to SoCal to be with Susan during her illness and finally for her services -- all while trying to keep work on track as best I can, and the rest of life and what it tosses at you, such as our...

Susan Collage

This is different from my usual work, but at the time this is being posted, I'm in southern california for my sister's internment and final services. For the services, as the owner of the family photography archives since dad died, I put together a poster to be on...

Photo Friday: Sandhill Cranes Dancing

It's November, and to me, that means the opening of the winter season for the wildlife refuges here in California. The winter migrants are in progress of arriving, and by this time, most of the Sandhill Cranes are here as well as some of the geese and ducks that...

Fuji X-T3 and Capture One (found a bug)

I mentioned in my recent post on birding Coyote Valley with the X-T3 that I'd seen a couple of things, especially a possible halo on the tail of a hawk, and I wanted to try an alternative to Lightroom to see if it's a rendering artifact or a real aspect of the image....

First Impression: Fuji X-T3 and bird photography

(quick edit until I can fix it properly. the two birds below I ID as female brewer's blackbirds are in face female brown headed cowbirds. Apologies for the confusion). Friday I realized I'd basically not left the house in ten days and I was starting to go a bit stir...

New Video: Geese and Cranes (Refuges in Winter)

I'm taking a fresh try at my ongoing project of trying to show the special nature of the wildlife refuges, and so I have a new slideshow/video that I did as a bit of an experiment. I've long thought images simply couldn't bring the refuge to life in a way I wanted,...

Photo Friday: Firehole Spring

I've been meaning to reboot posting a weekly photo out of the portfolio and discuss the image and the story behind it. I'm starting with this image because it has been the most popular image I've published to date by a wide margin. This photo came out of a trip to...

Selfies

In a group I participate in, everyone was challenged to produce a selfie. My immediate response was typical -- I don't shoot people; I don't shoot portraits. I shoot landscapes and nature and birds and wildlife. I especially don't shoot selfies. But... this was a...
