Heading out to photograph the Wild Mustangs

Heading out to photograph the Wild Mustangs

Can't wait to leave this Friday May 10th, on a little trip up to Sand Wash Basin in NW Colorado to photograph the wild Mustang horses. This will be my second trip there -- I also went last year and totally fell in love with these majestic beauties. I'll only be there three days, and who knows whether we'll be able to capture some good shots, but I hope so!

Excited to be included on the panel at Denver Audubon

As a result of 5 of my 6 submitted photographs being chosen in the Top 250 in the 2017 annual Denver Audubon's "Share The View" contest, I have been invited to be part of a panel of ten and will have the opportunity of presenting a 3 1/2 minute program of my choice on February 14th to the audience!

This is part of the email text I received from Wendy Shattil, Administrator of the Share the View International Nature Photography Contest:

"Based on your excellent Top 250 finish in the 2017 Share the View International Nature Photography Contest, you are invited to be part of the program February 14th on the IMAX screen at University of Colorado Denver -South. Ten photographers will present 10 images each while telling the story behind them in 3 ½ minutes. We’d like you to be one of them. Congratulations on your success with the contest."

Heading out to Minnesota

February 5th, 2019

I'm heading out to Minnesota on February 19th for a few days of photography, and am hoping for owls to be around and willing to pose! You never know what you might see when you're out, but owls are the main objective. We had originally planned to be gone during 1/28/19 - 2/1/19, but postponed the trip due to the arctic front that brought temperatures as low as -47 fahrenheit with wind chill. I am so glad we didn't go then, what with likely problems with cameras, camera batteries, the rental car, and of course, our fingers!
Stay tuned for an update!

So excited that I won Gold for my owl photo

I was in the middle of a phone conversation with a friend, idly scanning though my new messages, when one caught my eye: "Winner in Raptors at Risk Photo Contest". When I saw the content -- that I had won the gold medal, I shrieked! My friend, concerned, asked, "what's wrong??" "Ah, haha, nothing wrong!" And it came with a $500 prize! Now I want to enter more contests :).

Table at the 2016 Christmas Audubon Gift Sale

Table at the 2016 Christmas Audubon Gift Sale

How exciting tit was for me to be offered the opportunity of having a table at the annual Boulder Audubon Christmas Presentation and Gift Sale in 2016! This is a big annual event and attended by many local birders and by the general community.

I donated 25% of my sales to Boulder Audubon. What a busy evening! I sold many calendars, greeting cards, greeting card boxes, and prints, giving Audubon over $90 at the end of the evening. All my sales were of my own photos of local birds, ranging from raptors to songbirds.

The gift sale was followed by an interested presentation, given by a local teacher who had been invited to travel along on board a ship bound for the Arctic on a scientific research mission. He showed many of his photographs and entertained us with stories of birds seen far, far north.
