Wrapping up 2018

With 2018 coming to an end, I suppose it’s okay to reflect on my life this past year. 2018 has been a different year for me professionally and on a personal level, in so much that my wife experienced her first year of retirement from her job as an Engineer with Lockheed and I have…

Photographers Photograph and Writers Write

I am back to photographic action this week after a short hiatus. I find that my propensity to write articles is closely related to my propensity to take photographs. The two main subjects this month and probably through the end of the year are Deer and Bighorn. One of the things the wildlife photographer is…

Nothing But Blue Sky

Landscape photographers commonly complain about the prospect of having clear blue, cloudless skies to work with. In this article, I talk about how to deal with the clear blue sky. Now available in my Photo Articles

Patience is a Virtue

For most moose though, being injured is a serious business. Anything…

With over 2,000 images online, the simple truth is that not all of my images have sold. Quite a…

Back Roads of Life

  The plans are made for my Autumn 2018 road trip.  I’ll be heading out to the San Juan Mountains this year during the last week of September with my good friend Jonathan Steele. In a perfect world the weather will throw everything at us. I don’t really look for perfect blue skies and sunny…

Why Did The Moose Cross The Road?
