Northern Cardinal In Flight


Northern Cardinal In Flight

One of many visits to my backyard peanut feeder.

Kaleidoscope


Kaleidoscope

This one took awhile. A long while. This is a manual blend of over 9 exposures in Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. The slot canyon is one of the toughest places I've ever been to shoot, since the dynamic range is much, much more than the camera can...

Sandhiil Cranes Head To The Roost At Dust


Sandhiil Cranes Head To The Roost At Dust

Sandhill Cranes head for the roost at Dusk. Bosque del Apache recently posted this image on Facebook with the following quote: "I saw them first many Novembers ago and heard their triumphant trumpet calls, a hundred or more sandhill cranes riding...

Bosque Blastoff


Bosque Blastoff

Snow Geese "blast off" at dawn at Bosque del Apache NWR. It's an awesome experience watching the Snow Geese leaving the Flight Deck ponds at dawn. Thousands of geese lift as en masse and are gone within a minute.

Broad Billed Hummingbird At Cholla Flower

A Broad-Billed Hummingbird feeds on a Cholla Flower at Santa Rita Lodge in Madera Canyon, AZ. The canyon is a hot spot for birding in Southern Arizona and boasts multiple species of hummers.

Red-wing Retaliation


Red-wing Retaliation

I had my camera with me while golfing at the Hanover Country Club - an annual tournament sposered by the Apple family in support of the Gettysburg Bullets' Athletic Department. Around hole 14 or 15, I notice a red-winged balck bird dive bombing a red...

In The Spotlight


In The Spotlight

I don't think any slot canyon has been photographed more than this one. This is Antelope Canyon, just east of Page, Arizona. And let me tell you, although this image looks serene, the place is absolutely teeming with people and tour groups. I had to...

Magenta Waves


Magenta Waves

Different parts of Antelope Canyon take on different colors as sunlight filters down through the rock. Here, the rock was left with a magenta glow as the camera picked up cool shades from the shadows mixed with the natural orange from the rock. To...

Flame


Flame

In Antelope Canyon, once the light beams are done for the day, it's not quite time to pack up and go home. Since the sun can't shine directly to the floor of the canyon, its light is sent bouncing around the canyon walls. The stone has an amazing...

San Diego Sunrise


San Diego Sunrise

Headed out for a day of fishing without a proper camera, I was thrilled with the performance of my BlackBerry as the sunrise was spectacular.

Thorny End


Thorny End

Glorious light of Bacjauan over Bandi Asucar Mountain at the side where the sun rises. My first shot in my hometown which I get to visit every vacation in the Philippines. It is less than 10 mins drive from my parent's place. This could be one of my...

Twilight In The Desert


Twilight In The Desert

A typical summer sight over the high desert of northern New Mexico. The Rio Grande winds through the bottom of the picture, tinted red from the sky. Twilight produces some of the most brilliant colors in this part of the country, likely due to...

Painted Sky


Painted Sky

As the sun drops below the horizon, it uses its light like a painter to color the night sky in Southern Arizona.

Rundle Moonrise


Rundle Moonrise

Taken just around Halloween, I thought the mood created by the dim lighting and rising moon was a perfect match. The sky was still dark enough to show the crescent moon perfectly, and the moving clouds acted as a natural Neutral Density filter to...

In Brokenness


In Brokenness

This image is a good example of having fun with a prop. This is the original attic window that was in the old farmhouse that I now call home. It had been placed in the chicken coup. After salvaging it I decided it would a wonderful foreground element...

Tapestry Of Grace


Tapestry Of Grace

I love November light and sunsets on the Ohio landscape, and with this image I had the added bonus of the Moon which was just past half. This location is actually my backyard on my farm property here in Ohio

Saturn Sunset


Saturn Sunset

This state park is very near to where I live so I shoot sunsets there very often. Every night it is a different show, and more often than not there is no show at all. But when the light is right, its often spectacular. On this evening a ring-like...

Thunderstorms Over The Bay


Thunderstorms Over The Bay

Cape Henlopen State Park is the coastal area where the Atlantic Ocean enters Delaware Bay. I saw on weather radar that summer thunderstorms were moving out over the bay north of the park, so I got there in time to shoot the storms from a far distance...

Coatal Light


Coatal Light

When the sky is lit up at sunrise and sunset, I like to look for foreground subjects that tie in location and scale. Two coastal icons, dune fencing and lighthouse were framed against a sunset sky here to create a nice coastal scene.
