New Images Added

I've collected nine images that I've made over the past two months and added them to my main website. As always these images can be made into traditional prints, canvas prints, and notecards. As you'll see these include a bunch of bird photos, two fox photos, and a Bucks County scenic.

Braving the Storm

Another shot taken during last Saturday's snowstorm. These goldfinches are in their winter plumage and as you can see the wind is really blowing at this point The thick snowfall covers most other natural sources of food, so the birds are drawn in large numbers to the man-made sources. That makes life easy for us photographers.

Cardinal Closeup

Over at the nature center the birds were very active today, right smack in the middle of the second major snowstorm of the season. I was able to move freely around the bird blind (there was nary another soul there today) and get some good closeups. Here is a nice vertical shot of a female cardinal on a feeder.

Snow Zen

Although my style mainly consists of color nature and scenic images, I also like to see what I can do with black and white. The exploration of form and expression within a photograph is often referred to as Zen. This is my own off-the-cuff description - it is not really possible to get a specific description because its one of those things whereby "You just know it when you see it".

We received a little bit of snow a few days ago, and I found myself outside with my macro lens photographing a neighbor's tree. The close-up shots I made were interesting, but I also tried to explore the form of the tree. Even though most of this shot of the small section of branch is out-of-focus, I feel it does a good job in representing the form of the tree and conveying the contrast between the stark coldness of the wintry snow and the new growth at the end of the branch. My own attempt at Zen.
