The Wave

    I hiked to the wave with my partner Ruth Hoyt and friend Eric Dong in February 2015.  I write about it because it was an inspiring hike and an awe inspiring sight.  We arrived at the trail head a little after daylight the morning of our permit to find temperatures in the 20s. []


Winter in Iceland

February 22 through 28, 2015 was a week of mixed hurricane force wind, white out driving conditions, rain and attendant cloudy skies.   But it was also a photo adventure where 11 of us from the east coast and south and an Icelandic guide photographed ice caves, glaciers, ice burgs on black sand beach, one []


Bosque del Apache trip

The Bosque del Apache trip is posted on Adventures in Photography now.  Check it out if you are interested in waterfowl on their wintering grounds.  The big hitters are Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese.  There are plenty of other species there too.  We will also visit White Sands for afternoon and night photography.  The trip []

Texas birds

I will get back to China at another time but my South Texas Bird trip with Ruth Hoyt as my guide is on my mind at the moment.  We have been shooting with another couple (clients of Ruth’s) on two ranches.  These ranches are among those I have mentioned in the past.  They have blinds, []


China

  I just returned from the China trip on Sunday. It was a great trip and I will likely be talking about it here and elsewhere for some time. China is another land of contrasts. The larger cities are very modern and bustling with activity and energy. The villages still seem to be in another century. Probably []
