Welcome to my 500px nature photography page. My personal web page is Most of my photos are taken at dawn or dusk. Ninety-nine percent of my photos are single exposures. The exception is when I use a wide angle lens to take a landscape photo that includes the moon. I then have to shoot the moon with a longer focal length so that it is big enough to be seen. The other exception is for star trails photos. Sometimes I have to take multiple images in immediate succession to avoid excessive noise issues when shooting star trails. Although I have no objections to HDR, I do not use that technique myself for my shots The vivid colors seen in my photos often result from shooting long exposures during the best light of the day at dawn or dusk. If you are interested in learning advanced landscape photography techniques, I recommend reading "Nature Photography" and "Landscape Photography" by Tim Fitzharris. My images have been published in a variety of publications and venues that include Nature's Best Photography Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C., The National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, The Natural Resources Defense Council and MSNBC. Please do not save or use my photos in any way unless you get my permission first. To purchase a print or to view more of my photos, please visit my personal website. Please feel free to critique my photos. I appreciate all of the comments I receive on my photos on the 500px site--even ones that are critical.
