Three of my photos were accepted in to the 35th Annual Cerro Gordo Photo Show at the MacNider Art Museum this year. My photo of 'Niagara Falls in Winter' won Second Place. The photo was taken on the Ontario side of the river at Horseshoe Falls (also called Canadian Falls) on a very cold February morning. A long exposure gives the water the milky flowing look. I'm honored just to have three of my photos selected, but thrilled to receive a recognition among so many fine submissions by many talented local photographers. The photo below mine by Don Barnes, received Third Place recognition. The Photo Show is on display until the end of July 2015. Stop in to see the many wonderful photos by local photographers.

When I am out photographing birds, wildlife and landscapes I occasionally shoot some video at the same time. Here is a little video sampler of some of our photo adventures over the past few years. The still photos can be found throughout this web site.
A week in Rocky Mountain National Park is barely enough to to soak in the beauty and splendor of one of our grandest national parks. It's hard to say what impressed me most. I took photos of sunrises, sunsets, rivers and waterfalls. I love the mountain streams and waterfalls, and the reflections of the mountains on the surface of the lakes early in the morning when there is no wind. We saw and photographed Elk, Mule Deer, Moose, Yellow-bellied Marmots, Pikas, ground squirrels and Chipmunks. We looked for for Bighorn Sheep and Black Bear, but had no sightings in the week that we were there. Perhaps a good thing, because I did see recent Bear droppings in the middle of a trail at 4:30 in the morning as I was hiking around Sprague Lake to set up to take sunrise photos of the lake and mountains in the distance (I started talking to myself and the shadows rather loudly as I continued down the trail - just to alert any large furry critters that may still be around). We saw lots of Mountain Bluebirds and Magpies and a few Clark's Nutcrackers and Osprey, but there didn't seem to be a lot of birds in late July.
Just a few notes about my photos. See more on Facebook.
