I had this shot in mind for a while. In order to get a wide angle perspective I had to get within 3 feet of the bird. Therefore, I crawled on my belly slowly allowing the Great Egret to trust me.

Morning Flight

Prior to sunrise I located two Spoonbills in a perfect location for sunrise. I put on my waders, and waded into a lagoon to position myself for some portraits. After two hours the spoonbills took flight.

We made our way up to Buffalo Point on Antelope Island in Utah. We arrived on Friday afternoon and truth to tell I was ready to go home, actually I didn't want to come. The weather forecast was miserable and it was accurate. Friday afternoon upon our...

The land is often a reflection of something deeper. On this morning, clouds from the previous night's storm roamed the skies above Antelope Island. I was suddenly struck by the contradictory nature of morning itself. Morning truly is the remnants of...

Wide open views in the Highlands of Iceland abound - getting clear enough weather to photograph them can be hit or miss. This grand vista is composed of 4 images, using the natural topography and mountain peaks as bookends for the image.
