I’ve been rethinking the areas I go to see wildlife, trying to get the most out of my time spent and better grasp the region. I’ve been splitting my time, more or less inadvertently along a few rivers from Morristown, to the Great Swamp. Morristown being along the northern most edge of the Piedmont Plains […]Read more "Morristown’s Solitary Swan"
In the past weeks I’ve been capturing the many species of Speedwell Lake in Morristown, New Jersey. A 500 yard dogleg right with a surprisingly full crowd of hungry birds; Double Crested Cormorants, at least 3 Great Blue Heron, a lone Great Egret, Black Capped Night Heron, and Green Heron.

My schedule and myself being adversely affected by mornings, it’s been a particular challenge to shoot for more than an hour or two with the strength of the sun, which […]Read more "Great Swamp Log Part 1; Early Thaw"
Some of the most important camera lessons I’ve learned the last few years have been under the gun, up against it. With a camera around my neck and a pad in my hand. I always thought I wrote well, but it was usually just a means to get my pictures seen. And while it’s embarrassing […]Read more "Forays into sports journalism"
