    Doh!

    I was working on my laptop when , out of the corner of my eye, I see a beautiful juvenile red-shouldered hawk a few feet from the window on the railing. I get up very slowly and its head swiveled immediately. It was watching me like--well, a hawk!Sneak to the other room where my...

    Wings Of Life

    These days I'm mesmerized by a Louie Schwartzberg / Disney YouTube video. It's not really photography but more like slow motion cinematography, but there isn't a category for that here on EP, and this really is about the beauty of nature and wildlife.  I hope you enjoy it as...

    I love going on adventurous wildlife safari.

    ..when i am in their territory it feels so peaceful with the beautiful birds happily chirping away :) though clicking wildlife is quite a challenge but once you get a good shot of them it feels so satisfying...every shot of a bird or any animal feels like an achievement and is...

    Mesmerizing Time-Lapse Photography

    I just can't get enough of Louie Schwartzberg's work.   Does anybody else happen to find the vid clip here as moving as I did?

    Don't Forget The Water

    In one of my earlier trips in the Northern Territory (Australia) I carefully loaded myself up with what I thought was a light kit. A small back-pack, waist pack, camera gear, water...and hiked in. Part of the way in I realised I was losing water faster than I could drink it- the...

    But Who Doesn't

    There is something so calming about nature when captured at the right moment. It can also be so raw.

    Solid Tripods Are Worth It

    The old adage that there's generally no such thing as a light, stable tripod often still rings true. Excepting for carbon-fibre, light tripods often don't have the ability to capture long exposures without some movement. The downside is that carrying heavy, solid tripods over...

    Amongst The Waterfalls Of The Waitakeres

    In the chill of the NZ winter, a good day brings a clearness to the air that makes waterfall photography enrapturing. It's just a matter of dressing up warm, packing the right camera gear, and being prepared to hike the distances. "Three Steps"

    Avoid The Crowds- Bird Photography

    The kaka is an endangered NZ bush parrot.  There's a lovely population around Puhaka near Martinborough.  While the birds are habituated to people, lots of people also disrupt the birds.  They like to give as good as they get- the sight of a kaka zooming along at just above...
