There’s this spot on Kent Island that can at first appear to be nothing special. In the mid afternoon, when the light is brightest, it seems like any other location along the shore. Off to the north you can see the long expanse of the Bay Bridge. To the west, across the Bay, you might … More Dusk Silhouettes
Continuing to process my backlog of photography and discovering many images that I’d completely forgotten about, including this selection from when my good friend and fellow photographer John Sperry surprised me for my birthday and visited me here in Maryland from his home in Colorado. It was chilly, but nothing for a guy used to … More Assateague National Seashore
I’m on an editing spree, trying to make some progress on my New Years Resolution to process my backlog of photography. This first batch contains photography taken at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Here’s to a New Year full of beauty and adventure!
I recently returned from another productive trip to the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph with two of my favorite ladies- Cahlean Klenke and Natasha Pierce. For the three of us to come together in one of my favorite locations from our homes in Maryland, Minnesota and Oklahoma was something … More
I love being eye-to-eye when taking snake photos. Soon as I determine a snake I come across is harmless and its safe to do so, I’m on my belly and composing snake portraits. If I came across more snakes in my wanderings, I’d likely start a Snakes Of Whatever Instagram and pretend to have conversations … More Meeting A Snake
I ran out last minute this evening to photograph the sunset. The spot I was heading towards was inaccessible, so even more last minute, I headed in another direction. The sky was brilliant, with light reflecting off the impressive storm clouds that were rolling in. It was perfect for a panoramic of the Kent Narrows…but … More Rules, Shmules.
Good morning and a happy Tuesday to you! I was up bright and early, listening to the birds sing, and lamenting the fact that its completely overcast— no sunrise for me! But, here…a sunset is nearly as good as a sunrise in such a situation, yes? Also, this just happens to be today’s Deal of … More Good Morning!
We’re expecting a very rainy Tuesday and perhaps snow in some parts of Maryland, so here’s something warm and sunny to tide you over. Sunny days are coming again soon enough. 🙂
Several times when making plans with friends or fellow photographers, I’ve had people dismiss a location or plan because the main attraction was birding and “birding/photographing birds was boring”. I guess I can understand from a certain….well, no…not really. Fact is, I find birds endlessly fascinating. Photographing birds, I get a sense of the ‘character’ … More For The Birds
All photographers are familiar with the concept of shooting in the magic hours. Sunrise and the early morning hours/the late afternoon and sunset hours. At these times the light can be remarkable and many times, its at these hours when I’m out and about. On other days, when I can, I take the entire day … More Making The Most of the Light
