Miracles Find Me
Our first Sunrise in our new cabin home. Cocooned in a felted wrap, with a handful of steaming tea I sat in the window with Star. Leaning into the massive sheet of steamy glass he was more interested in the morning outside than in here.
The Majestic Polar Bear
There were tears. Not from me, but it was a near thing. Standing in the underwater tunnel with four strangers, only thin glass separating us from the pool of water overhead, we all shared a moment of awe as a polar bear swam over us with steady, powerful strokes. I'll never see or meet those people again, I don't know who they were or where they were from, but at that moment we all shared the same feeling. It's hard to explain the transcendent feeling that overtook us in that moment, but it left some of us in tears; this amazing animal had graced us with its majesty and we were in awe.
For many years my trusty digital camera a Pentax Optio W 60 waterproof has never failed me. In the early morning stepping out on my second-floor floor front porch I looked down into the yard and saw what looked like a cat met with an accident. Fluffkins was sunbathing and the sight of him in the morning sunlight made me smile and this was the result.

The monarch butterfly is in trouble. Their numbers have declined 90% over the past 20 years due to a combination of land development and the widespread use of pesticides and weedkillers, which has decimated the population of milkweed – the monarch’s only food source.
Onaqui Wild Horses
I live in Utah where there are several herds of wild horses that are managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Over the years I have seen many photos of these beautiful animals. I finally decided it was time that I took the trip myself. I loaded up my camera filled my car with fuel and made sure my tires were aired up (the road out to this area is rough and has a reputation for causing flat tires), told my family where I was going and to come find me if I didn’t get home by 8:00 PM.
The Beauty Of Wildlife Photography
I have always had a love for photography. Growing up, I took classes and played with old film cameras. It wasn't until my mid-twenties that I was able to truly pursue photography, and what started as a childhood hobby went on to be my greatest passion. I've been lucky enough to photograph many subjects. I've shot portraits, landscapes, vehicles, and architecture, but nothing compares to the beauty that is photographing wildlife. It an almost magical feeling that fills me with more joy than I can possibly describe. I've always had a love for nature, but photography has given me so much more of a desire to work with it and capture the beauty of the animals we so often take for granted.
When I snap the shutter of my camera. It takes time to find what I plan on shooting. When I take a photo trip my day is planned on where I will go. I have gone to places expecting to get a story and have left with nothing. then there are times I just bring my camera just incase and have filled half a memory card (500ish photos). My vision is unclear I look for something that no one else sees. Sometimes it is easy sometimes not. The story can be ugly or beautiful. I have thousands of shots not all good however I can tell you where most of them were captured.
I hope I see some bears while I’m here. That was the main thought in my head as I pulled into a long dirt driveway in the backwoods of northern Minnesota. I’d flown to Minneapolis-St. Paul from Boston, rented a car, and driven the rest of the way. It had been a long day, and the late afternoon sun slanted through the branches of the surrounding trees.
