Peak Design Capture Pro Clip Review

The Peak Design Capture Clip Pro is light weight, and very well made. A simple solution to carrying your camera on a day trip, backpacking or the zoo. A couple of years ago a friend and I went backpacking in Glacier National Park, I had rigged up a way to carry my camera, a Canon…

Bald Bluff to the Stone Elephant

After a pretty inactive summer last year I am trying to get out and hike more. I injured my foot and wasn’t able to do much walking or even bicycling last year. This year one of my goals is to hike 300 miles, on trails not counting walking around home or at work where I…

Get Out…

  About these images: A day of walking the same trails uninspired, I found these red berries and ice, I had a great time exploring,  following the ideas below.  I edited them in Lightroom and Topaz Simplify.   Get Out… As nature and landscape photographers we can often find ourselves disappointed after a trip.

Milkweed Dreams

Finally

One of my favorite things to do is watching the sunrise from Coal Dock Park in Port Washington Wisconsin. The last couple of years I have enjoyed watching the sunrise as the fishing boats head out into Lake Michigan. I have taken many, many images, some better than others, but none I really think reflect…

Leave No Trace

As people who love the outdoors, you would think that it would be a given to care for the landscape and subjects we enjoy.  As more and more people become interested in nature and enjoying our wild areas, it seems that it has become more common to either purposefully destroy a subject, so that others…
