Snow-Monkeys

Off To A Good Start!

We finally made it to the Jigokudani Monkey Park yesterday at around 3:00pm. We spent way too much time in our van travelling from Tokyo to the park but apparently there was heavy traffic. It was a fantastic experience to return to the monkey park. Aside from Paul and me no one in the group …

Sandhill Crane

Tucked In

These images were created on my recent trip to Florida, they are from the same photo shoot as my previous post of Sandhill Cranes.  Since I was able to get very close to this pair of cranes I took advantage of the situation and created many images with lots of different poses. To get close …

Merritt-Island

Roseate Spoonbills

On my last day in Florida I went to Merritt Island after hearing from my friend and fellow photographer Pamela Cohen. Pam told me that Merritt had plenty of Spoonbills and Avocets. That was enough to get me there!! Thanks Pam, you were right. I usually skip Merritt as the last few times I was …

Viera is a water treatment facility and has a road that winds around the property so you can easily see things …

Florida Everglades

The Eye of the Beholder

Each of these images were created in the Florida Everglades on Anhinga Trail during my recently concluded Everglades workshop. Anhinga Trail is one of the best paces to photograph Double-crested Cormorant. You can get up close and personal with many of the cormorants as they stand on the railings that run alongside of the trail. …

Everglades

High-Key Gator

The above image was captured at Anhinga Trail in the Florida Everglades. It is straight out of camera with a slight crop and some tonal adjustments to the gator. I loved seeing the way the part of the gator that was under water looked (click on the image to see the larger/sharper version). The top …

Everglades

High-key Reflection

This is an abstract shot of branches and leaves reflected in the water at Anhinga Trail.This reminded me of sea glass. The water was moving and that is what created the blurred/ripple effect. For those of you that attended my Coastal Camera Club Photoshop session in DE, I used the High-key filter that I shared …
