The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

Photo Friday: First Signs

March 10, 2017

Every year, towards the end of Winter, I look for certain signs that the warm up is on the way.  The first of these signs is the sound of the cardinal.  Most of the year, it is a short peep, but right before the warm up it changes to a beautiful song used to attract a mate.

Today’s picture is of a cardinal in the middle of its call.

First Look Photo: Resting Hawk

February 1, 2017

Today’s photo is of a red tailed hawk I see every morning on the path home.  I figure it is just waking up when I get out of work, and it flew off right after I got this shot.

First look Photo: Downy

Here’s a shot I took this week.  This downy woodpecker was hard to keep still long enough, but this was the best shot he gave me.

Photo Friday: Welcome to my Church

April 1, 2016

Through the years, one question that pops up, occasionally, is “If you’re a Christian, why don’t you go to church?” My answer to that is pretty simple.  Every time I walk out my front door, into nature, I’m in my church.

No stained glass window, or cathederal, no matter how elaborate, can come close to the beauty of nature.  I don’t worship nature, but I do appreciate the creation of it, and that is what I want to share with my photography.

I hope you enjoy today’s sample.

Better Christmas Photo

December 10, 2012

I took this picture to replace the shot I got before.  The problem with the earlier version is that it has nothing to do with Christmas.  It’s just the top of the candle with blurry lights.

What I really wanted was a picture that at least had the feel of Christmas to it.  Of course, I didn’t want to over do the picture, so I kept the props to a minimum; just red berries, and pine.  I used a small slave flash for the lighting, but the first few shots were blown out.  In the end, I had to bounce the flash off the wall, then darken a little in Photoshop.

I hope you all enjoy it.
