If you’ve been tracking my Photo A Day project you’ve probably noticed I haven’t updated anything since since July, just before my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. So whats the deal? I am still actively participating in this project. I have a large backlog of images to post. I will start adding more images next week. Between starting a new job, enduring a kitchen remodel and now reorgani
Day 13, my last day in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge made a huge impression on me. Up until this time my focus was squarely on capturing the pristine beauty of the environment and wildlife. On this day I had the opportunity to see the impact of man on this unique environment. With in the photo gallery of this days highlights are images designated with the labels “Landscape Comparison” or “Hand

By far the cute factor for the subjects photographed on this day outweighed all the previous days combined, although as is apparent fr
A friend forwarded me an amazing still photo taken from the air of camels walking across the desert. The catch… the shot was taken straight down at the camels. The camels themselves were white slivers, but their shadows were long and in clear form making it look like you could see all the camels laying on the sand. Its an amazing image and it was traced to the following National Geographic site where there is a
Its taken a few weeks, but I’ve finally been able to finalize photos from Day 11 of my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This day could easily be summed up as the day of the panoramic. I have posted 5 panoramic images including 180 degree views of the Brooks Range and Coastal Plain (including the Arctic Ocean and pack ice).
