Here’s an older shot from this Spring. I’ve been going through old images, and as usual, I somehow didn’t notice this one. I really like the position of the wings here. Even though I shot over 600 images that evening, I didn’t get any more like this.
Hope I’m not boring all of you with the shorebird shots but there are still a few more that I want to share! This Killdeer wasn’t happy about another Killdeer in the area, and didn’t hesitate to make it known. I really like the color of the grass in this one.
Here’s another of the many photos you’ll see on here from my weekend in Conneaut. This youngster flew in when we were concentrating on photographing the Sora’s I mentioned earlier. I’m sure you can imagine the conflict in my mind. I just made the most of both opportunities and walked away with what I consider strong images of each!
I’m happy to say that my portfolio on Photoportfolios.net will be featured this month!
This photograph was made in Conneaut, Ohio with bird master Matthew Studebaker. We were incredibly lucky that not one, but three(!) Sora’s were out in the open for us to photograph! These birds don’t typically stray too far away from dark areas with thick reeds so it was absolutely awesome to photograph them with a clean background.
I’m happy to say that I’ll be writing multiple blog entries a week for Nature’s Best Photography Students’ Blog. I’ll be contributing two or three posts a week, mainly trip reports, field updates, “how-to’s” and such. I do understand that most of you who are reading this blog are considerably older than I am, but feel free to stop by anyway, as I’m sure you’ll find some of the content interesting.

Here’s a photograph from last week up at Great Falls National Park. I met up with another photographer, Chris Kayler, to photograph the sunrise. The shooting conditions were pretty nice. The skies were very clear, which was less than ideal, but there was a good amount of mist rising off the water, which is characteristic of this time of year. I showed up a bit late and I think I missed the best light. That’s okay, though, since I have no shortage of days I can go back. I live only 15 minutes away.
Anyway, here’s my favorite shot from that morning. I’ll be heading back a few times this week, so look out for more shots soon. I also had the opportunity to photograph shorebirds in Conneaut, Ohio, so I’ll be posting plenty of those images as well!
I took this photo in early June as well, up in Maine. I was at Sandy Stream Pond, in Baxter State Park, Maine. I had completely overlooked this image, just like the rainbow I posted earlier. I had just written off my attempts at photographing a Bull Moose as a failure. I now feel differently about the matter.

Here’s one from early June. This photograph was taken just outside of Baxter State Park, Maine. I’ve been going through my files and working up the images I overlooked the first time around editing images from the trip. I guess when I first saw this image I didn’t like the fact that the rainbow seems to be split in two.
There’s a bit of a funny story behind this one. I almost missed this shot because of how hard I hit my head when getting out of my car. I’m clumsy at times…

I took this shot on August 4th in Great Falls National Park. I went out there hoping for some dramatic sunrise light, and was given this scene instead.
If you’ve been following my old blog, you’re aware of the fact that I had most of my equipment stolen in mid-July. I’ve now replaced most of what I lost, but when I shot this photo, I had yet to recieve new Grad-ND’s in the mail. This shot is a blend of two exposures, one for the land, and one for the sky. This is the first time I’ve used this technique and been happy with it!
