    I took a last minute half-day trip yesterday out to Barnegat Light, New Jersey, to photograph sea ducks and shorebirds. It was a pretty productive shoot, with clear skies and not much wind to worry about. I successfully photographed Harlequin Duck, Brant, Surf Scoter, Purple Sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Dunlin, and Long-tailed Duck, and on top of that I saw Black Scoter, Common Eider, Common Loon, and Greater Black-backed Gull, among others.

    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!

    Hey everyone,

    I’m taking a quick break from processing shots I took on my long trip to show you some birds I photographed this winter. Here’s a shot from early February of male and female Harlequin Ducks. They’re definitely one of the more interesting waterfowl I’ve seen! In this shot I liked the way the two of ‘em were sitting next to each other. I stopped down to f/13 to get them both in focus.

    Barnegat Light is a great place to photograph them, along with Red-breasted Mergansers, Long-tailed Ducks, Brant, and some Scoters or a Common Eider if you’re lucky.
