Rainbow

Last week was straight out of a nightmare. I’ve spoken to some who admitted the same thing. The top horror story in my life is I lost over 200 pictures that were taken at my fav park. My computer gobbled them up after I uploaded them into my editor. That, or I did something I … Continue reading Rainbow

Drats!

Now of course being I am only a mere human and therefore not nearly as intelligent as a Pileated Woodpecker, never saw it coming. I, the fumbling, heart in my throat, shaky photographer grappling below as this bird watched, managed to remove one lens to put on my big and very heavy 100-400mm lens. I … Continue reading Drats!

Full Moon

In a recent conversation with a friend, I made a half-hearted promise that I would photograph the full moon that happened this past Wednesday, October 24th. Unfortunately, that night was too overcast to see much of anything. The following night, however, I was able to get over 100 pictures of this moon before the cloud … Continue reading Full Moon
