Serenity | In Sunflowers

This was my first time visiting a sunflower field. I had heard and seen some amazing things about a local field that was a haven to birds like Indigo Buntings and Goldfinches. I thought I would drive the hour to go see for myself. I was armed with both my cameras, one for distance and one for wide, so I could try my hand in sunflower shooting. And while it was super hot and sticky and buggy and very crowded I managed to get a few shots I liked, even though the Indigo Buntings were not all that interested in posing for me in the field. I saw them in the trees though. Here is how I spent my evening.

 

For more serenity, please head over to the super talented Nadeen Flynn, northern California natural light photographer for her photos this month.

Wildlife Workshop Weekend

I took a local in person workshop the first weekend in August. It was really nice to be out in nature with many like minded people. Here is a large share from that event.

Spring Break 2016

This year for spring break we took a road trip to New York City, Toronto and Niagara Falls. This was our first time visiting Canada and we had a great time despite chilly weather. 🙂 Here are the highlights from the trip.
