Best of the Tetons: Not Just a “Newsletter”!

WOW! I bumped into two photographers today that told me, “I love your newsletter!”

That’s GREAT! However, I must not be getting the message out fully. Neither of them knew they “needed” to visit the Daily Journal regularly as the month progresses.The notification subscribers receive on the first of each month is just the INITIAL ENTRY for the daily updates for that month.

With few exceptions, I add more photos and comments to the Daily Journal page every day throughout the month!

Sunset over Sleeping IndianFor example, if you only viewed the March 1st emailed page, you would be missing this photo of Sleeping Indian I added on the 2nd of the March. The photos in the “emailed newsletter” consisted of only photos I took on the 1st of the month! Continue reading "Best of the Tetons: Not Just a “Newsletter”!"

Photographing Desert Dunes

I’ve just returned from the Sultanate of Oman.  It is a fascinating Arab country on the Arabian Peninsula that has literally been built in the last 40 years from virtually nothing but sand. Where there were only camel paths, Bedouins and fisherman, there are now highways, homes, hospitals, schools and a modern society.mu-area.gifBut untouched are two of Oman’s great desert areas: Wahiba Sands and Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter).  I spent about 40 hours in each, shooting a total of four sunrises and four sunsets.

Photographing the wild horses of North Carolina

What is is about the form of a horse that evokes so much emotion? Is it their gentle nature as they gaze in a pasture? Or maybe the power of their muscles visibly flexing as they gallop? We have all seen horses in competition, at the track, maybe have ridden a time or two, and many of us have had the pleasure of being up close and personal. But the wild ones…With no halter and reins, and their harem and only the open land, wild horses are truly a sight to behold…and to photograph. This past October I spent four days with wild horses on two barrier islands near Beaufort, North Carolina. Each island had two characteristics in common: you could only get there by boat, and there are no people or homes there. The horses are in charge.On Bird Shoal is the Rachel Carson Reserve, over 2000 acres with a group of horses that tends to stay together, about 30 in total. On Shackleford Banks, the horses prefer to stay in harems, groups of one stallion, perhaps one or two mares, and any recent foals as the family unit. There are about 120 horses on the nine-mile long island. Shackleford Banks is the long thin island and the Rachel Carson Reserve is just above the west end.
