5-18-10 Nature Photography Florida Bird Rookery 00.jpg

 

Every spring there is a wildlife spectacle in Florida that nature photographers and birders alike come to witness from all over the world.  It is the annual nesting rookery at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and for anyone who loves birds, it is a real treat in every way.  Here, on one short boardwalk constructed over a swamp you can view Roseate Spoonbills, Tricolored Herons, Wood Storks, Snowy, Cattle and Great Egrets and many more species playing out every stage of the nesting process and May is prime time for the chicks to make their debut into the world.  It is a wonderous sight and I always love having a chance to watch them during this early stage of life :-)!

While we were in Florida this past May for Liane and Andy's wedding we took time to visit some of my favorite wildlife hotspots and get back to nature.  It was spring and all the birds and reptiles were out either looking for mates, laying eggs or raising their young.  I just love this time of year in Florida for wildlife photography :-).

8-10-10 Nature Photography Hawaii Big Island 00.jpg

 

This past August we went to the Big Island of Hawaii to photograph two weddings.  After we were done, we spent two weeks exploring this very large Island ... by Hawaii standards anyways.  What we found was an Island ripe with rugged beauty; active volcanoes giving birth to new land dotted with high, cold mountains harboring glimpses of the heavens and stars so close you feel as though you can almost touch them; oh, and then there are the secret lagoons and isolated beaches full of sea turtles ... plenty and plenty and plenty of sea turtles ... we love sea turtles :-)!  Below is a record of our journey through the images we took!

While we were on the Big Island of Hawaii, we took a boat trip to view the lava flows.  It was spectacular to witness ... one of the most amazing acts of nature we have ever seen!

My best friend in the whole world :-), Daniela, came out from her home in Chicago to help me out with a wedding (more on that in the next posting) in November.  She was only here for 3 days and it was the first time she had ever been out west.  She is originally from Brazil and given the fact that her time spent in the US has always been on the East Coast or in the Midwest, the Wild West was a little different for her.  She loved it from the moment her plane touched down in Phoenix!  Given the short time span I had to show her around, I had to be selective about where to take her.  The obvious choice was the Grand Canyon, so off we went, straight from the airport to the canyon.  She was mesmerized, as most people are who see it for the first time!  Here are a few shots we took while we were there.

 

Daniela and I at my favorite tree :-)!

This is probably my favorite shot that I have ever taken at the Canyon.  I love the mixture of the mood of the dark storms in the canyon and the beautiful spot of light illuminating her face ... perfect!
