On The Wild Road – Wildlife Conservation Tourism in the Rockies – Part 1

At The Wild Animal Sanctuary northeast of Denver, Colorado I watched through my telephoto camera lens as a grizzly bear gently backed himself into an artificial pond. He was cautious and slow but once in the water he floated peacefully and splashed around with a stick. The pond was out of place among the dry […]

Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Bazille and the like. But impressionism in photography is no different. The artist tries to capture […]

Into the Wilderness – Photo Essay from Rio Grande del Norte National Monument

My European Wilderness Trip

My European wilderness fascination dates back to the early 1990’s when, for various reasons that lack any sense of logic, I ended up walking my way through various sections of southern Europe on my way to Hong Kong.

A young, male bighorn sheep. Somehow “tomorrow” turned into three days later this week. I really feel like I should say something here but I said it all the other day here where I described how these shots came about.  I’ll just allow this beautiful beast to speak for himself. ##

“Why does Ukraine invest in nature conservation? Simple,” says Max Rossberg of the European Wilderness Society. “These young people are much more educated than we believe and they are realizing that nature has a value.

Spring at the Hummingbird Feeder – My Shot of the Day April 26, 2014

The kids and I FINALLY got the hummingbird feeder out. Given the incredibly weird winter (really it was nutty everywhere) we had this year the hummingbirds came back a few weeks early this year. In fact, by my observation, they come back earlier every year but this year it was pretty dramatic. This is the first male […]
