    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...

    But Who Doesn't

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

    Great Day

    Today was a red letter day for me. I went out with the intention of finding and photographing Dippers on a mountain stream in Snowdonia, North Wales. Although I have seen dippers on many occasions they have always been too wary for me to get close enough to photograph them...

    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...

    Love Photography

    I actually went to school for photography back when we used cameras with film and f-stops!  I think Nature photography is my favorite form of art.  There is so much beauty to capture in the world, from landscapes to animals, to close-ups of flowers and bugs.  I...

    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...

    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...

    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"
