One summer I was just hanging out at my dads cabin in Duck Creek Utah. It was such nice weather outside. We decided to open up the doors to the back deck and let the fresh air in. I decided to sit out on the deck with my camera. And see if I can get some interesting photos of birds eating from the feeders.
To my surprise here comes what I would call the worlds fattest bird walking across the deck and eating the bird food that the other birds are throwing out from the bird feeders.
To get this image I had to lay down on the deck nose to nose with the bird. Very happy with the shot that I got. The portal bird was so fat he couldn’t actually fly so he actually jumped down step-by-step off the stairs to get off the deck. I’m assuming that’s also how he got on the deck.
“Hidden Falls” I shot this image during one of my trips to New York city. This image is a combination of two shots. One exposed for the water fall and one for the rocks. This image is one of my favorites. Mostly because it took some effort in getting to the waterfall. Because you had to cross a bridge and hike through some very cold water. It also tested my skills with my camera . I was extremely pleased to see what I got after I was finished merging the two shots together. I think it’s one of my best images so far.
I titled this. Image Mother Ship. I took this photo while I was writing my first hot air balloon. The cool thing was that we were up above a whole bunch of other kinds of hot air balloons. And I got some very interesting shots of the top of multipleHot air balloons.
A lone elk hanging out in a field of wild flowers. With the sunlight cascading over it’s back. Elk were once found across much of North America but they were killed off and driven to take refuge in more remote locations. Today they live primarily in western North America, especially in mountainous landscapes such as Wyoming’s National Elk Refuge and Yellowstone National Park. Some eastern U.S. states have reintroduced small elk herds into heavily wooded wilderness areas.
This is a great shot of a backlit horse. . They always say do not shoot directly into the sun. I know this is a rule but sometimes rules are meant to be bent or broken. This image is a great example of the rule sometimes not applying. I enjoyed this image so much I believe it works as a color and a black and white. Here is the black-and-white and color version. Which one do you like better?
Chelsea with flowers Understanding of how photography can be used by blind people. Blind photography “I think, for me, photography means that I can pause the World around me so I can get a better view. Some key questions people tend to ask me are. What does art mean to me? The best way I can describe it is this saying I found. “Art is not the medium, and art is not the execution; art is the idea.”While this opinion is debatable, it’s one with which I happen to agree with and one that blind photography supports. Where do I find art? Art is every where and all you have to do is look. With the right amount of inspiration and ideas you can make art out of anything. Where do I find inspiration? I find inspiration in! The majestic mountain sides. The animal that stops and looks at you…
While I was exploring Saguaro National Park I came across this beautiful cactus flower. I was filled with inspiration. Of course I had to take several shots before I got the one I liked. After spending the rest of the day photographing the park. We got back to the campsite and spent a little time reviewing our images. After seeing this particular image it dawned on me we would also work as a great black-and-white. But wasn’t able to really work it up until I got home and really be able to work some magic. Here are the two images I came up with just from one. Believe it or not they look so much different from each other. I am quite please with the results. I’m not sure which one I like better. They both speak to me in there own ways. The color image of the cactus is vibrant and full of color. The black-and-white is a simple but elegant shot and extremely classic in its own way.
