    Sora out in the open (just like last year!)

    Hey everybody,

    Now I’ll begin sharing images I made from two visits to Conneaut. OH, to photograph shorebirds migrating southwards for the fall/winter! Just like last year when I went to Conneaut, I found a group of three Sora(s?) that ventured out into the open quite a bit! It’s always exciting to get a secretive bird such as the Sora to come out into the open. They’re always tucked away in some thick reeds, so photographing them with a clean background such as this is just a blast!

    One more from WV!

    Hey everybody,

    I’ve finished working through my shots from WV and I have to say that this one is my favorite! I’ll have some new stuff up here soon, I promise! I’ve got dozens of shorebirds I could share from Conneaut, and I’ll be shooting along the coast and at Great Falls this week!

    Aaaaannnnndddddddd one more from my day in West Virginia!

    This image was made the same day as all of the previous WV images, but this was taken about 15 minutes after sunset as a layer of clouds blew in from the South. I used my Singh Ray Vari-ND filter to obtain an eight minute shutter speed for the sky. I’ve also received some criticism for leaving the foreground so dark, but I like it that way and hope you do too.

    Hi everybody,

    Continuing on with the theme of posting images from my recent West Virginia/Ohio trip, here’s another image from sunrise at that favorite overlook of mine! You know, although the graduated ND filters will never leave my bag, I am really beginning to get comfortable with digitally blending my images.

    Hi,

    Chris Kayler and I just got back from a 5 day trip spent photographing landscapes in Davis/Canaan Valley, West Virginia, and migrating shorebirds in Conneaut, Ohio. Overall the trip was a great success, with great light in West Virginia, and great birds in Ohio! Here’s the first of a few images I’ll be sharing with you all from this most recent trip. I made this photograph atop a favorite rocky overlook in the Monongahela National Forest. Chris and I hiked up in the evening and camped out at the overlook in order to be there at sunrise.

    Hey everybody,

    I’m making a serious effort to get some content up on this blog regularly. I’m currently playing catch-up, and still working through most of my images from late winter/spring. Back in February, I went up to Canada and shot with my friend Greg Schneider. One of the many birds we found was this Northern Hawk Owl in Ottawa.

    Hey everybody,

    My lack of participation on this blog lately has gone on for too long! I’ve been working hard on preparing photos for my new website, and I’ve enjoyed a rare week of doing absolutely nothing at all! I’m getting caught up again with processing photos. Here are two images I made of Long-tailed Ducks at Barnegat this past February. I had a great visit and saw tons of birds, including but not limited to: Harlequin Ducks, Long-tailed Ducks, Common Loon, Red-throated Loon, Black Scoter, Surf Scoter, Red-breasted Mergansers. Barnegat really is a great spot and I hope to return for a morning or two this winter!
