February, being cold, blizzardy, snowy and miserable I didn't get out much. March is different. I've been out a couple of times and look what I saw - Sunlight in the snowy forest can take on so many aspects. Shadows on smooth snow is one of the best though. This one is from the Pulpit...

Elusive Wildflowers – Part 11 – Black Nightshade
Nightshades are an interesting family of plants. Many of them are poisonous with lethality that goes mostly like this - mmm, yummy woah, trippy eww, I don't feel so good omg, I wish I was dead ugh, (clunk) Even the non-deadly ones have deleterious effects for some people. Those would be potatoes, tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers... Continue Reading →
More from Ponemah Bog
Are you dead from the suspense yet? Sorry about that. Here is some more from my latest dawn trek to the bog. The wider views are all done with my regular 12-60mm lens, but I spent some time finding some landscape slices which was pretty rewarding. It's a fun way to see things that is... Continue Reading →
Make Me Blush
The day of my epic face-plant yielded another present that I would have definitely missed had I gone home. All three of you that read this thing know that I had (have) a mini-project (obsession) going with Indian pipe flowers. I don't know what it is about these luminous beauties, but I am so drawn...

Wildflowers in January??!!
Another reason I'm fascinated with Indian Pipe wildflowers is because they over-winter and I can photograph them in January!
Lickable Light – white balance and how it will make your photos their best!
In the course of a day I look at hundreds of photographs. By participating in Google+, forums, flickr, 500px and other photo communities it's easy to do. One thing that has been getting my attention is that people don't seem to understand white balance and its importance. Mainly I notice it when there is water... Continue Reading →

More Fall Favorites
Some from a nearby apple orchard. I particularly liked the juxtaposition of these two. Plus the light was great! Some watery views from my hike up Mt. Hale this past weekend. The light was direct sun and rather harsh and contrasty, so I did the best I could -
The Birth and Death of a Day
My eyes aren't always turned downwards, finding tiny details to show to the rest of the world. No, sometimes I pretend I'm a landscape photographer. Here are a sunrise at the coast and a sunset at a lake. Unfortunately there were no clouds in the sky for the sunrise, but when I saw the clouds... Continue Reading →
