Last night I watched the first two episodes of “Planet Earth” mini-series on the Discovery Channel and was quite impressed with the quality of the programs subject material, writing and cinematography. I’ve seen plenty of nature programs and this is definitely living up to the hype. What’s equally impressive is the supporting material and stories at the end of each program and on the Discovery
A few weeks ago I read about some amazing Crystal Caves discovered in Mexico and was blown away by the photos! (Thanks Raoul via Twitter) This week what little skepticism I had of this story is now gone seeing as how National Geographic is now reporting the discovery as well. Check it out. The first site actually has more photos and larger ones at that. Giant crystal cave in Mexico – Cellar.org Photo Gallery: G
This was a huge week for environmental news. U.S. Supreme Court Rules in its first case on climate change, that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are air pollutants under the Clean Air Act —– U.S. Supreme Court deals a setback to the utility industry, supporting a Clinton era, federal clean air initiative aimed at forcing power companies to install pollution control equipment on aging coal-fired p

I’m not much for contests, but the prospect of photographing Polar Bears has me in a contrarian mood. For those with extra time the Viewers Choice voting ends tonight for Outdoor Photographers “Vanishing Treasures” photo contest.

A very neat development to report this week. I’ve had some of my Golden Gate Bridge photos spotlighted in the San Francisco Chronicle, the largest newspaper here in the San Francisco bay area. They have a “Flickr Pickr” page as part of their “96 Hours” section where they highlight local photographers on Flickr. The write up is quite flattering… Thanks John! See the full write up on
As far as photo forums go I have to admit I’m a dinosaur. I’ve been posting on photo forums since they started to pop up on the internet. Granted I’ve done so selectively, yet trying each that comes around and over time I’ve settled into a few that I feel best meet my needs.

I’m a pretty impatient person so when someone tells me that something great is on the horizon I’m usually on the edge of my seat. The past few months I’ve been more seriously experimenting with Flickr.com and another great site Zooomr.com.I remember hearing about Zooomr when it first came out and was lured by a free account with a lot of storage space. I totally forgot about it until I found out the
