NANPA Turns 15

The annual Summit is both a gathering of friends and colleagues as well as a wonderful shooting opportunity for attendees

Other highlights for Jane and me have included visits to Death Valley and Mono Lake after the 2001 Summit in Las Vegas, Nev., Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia and ACE Basin Reserve in South Carolina (with Tom Blagden) after the 2002 Summit in Jacksonville, Fla., and Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico after the 2006 Summit in Denver, Colo.

Jane had the flu during our 2006 trip and insisted that we return to Bosque after the 2007 Summit in Palm Springs, Calif., so we photographed in Joshua Tree National Park and at the Salton Sea near Palm Springs, and then headed east to Bosque with stops in Tucson, Ariz., and Las Cruces, N.M. The stop in Tucson turned out to be one of those remarkable gifts to an outdoor photographer.

As we neared Tucson, it began to snow, and the following morning the desert was blanketed. The Arizona sun melted the snow quickly, but not before Jane and I were able to photograph the snow-covered landscape.

Jane and I made reservations early in the Albuquerque area for the 2009 Summit, and we look forward to seeing and making friends and photographing nature’s riches afterwards.
