A place where I can post random ramblings about my recent photography...

Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks - Stars, Scenery, and Wildlife (Part 2)

Fox in Grand Teton Natl ParkFox in GTNP It was time for a repeat of a trip two years ago to the Grand Tetons where I again attended a photography workshop in which we focused (pun intended) on night photography.  Weather was great, and we were able to get out and shoot almost every evening. During the day we scouted locations, chased "good lighting" and wildlife, and worked on our photos from the previous day.

Grand Teton National Park leaves me wanting to return, again and again.

New Zealand, South Island - Sheep, Seals, Snow, and Stars

Baby Seal relaxing on the rocksBaby Seal relaxing on the rocks This past November and December, I toured around the South island  of New  Zealand for almost 3 weeks.  Between driving on the "wrong" side of the road, living out of a bright green "camper van", and traveling totally without an itinerary (not at all like me!), it was an exciting and amazing time.   The weather was a bit challenging on the west coast, which, unfortunately, was the side of the island that I wanted to spend more time on, but I still managed to get some great shots, and to have an amazing time in the process. "What're you looking at?""What're you looking at?"Some lambs stopped to gawk at the odd-looking foreigner.

 

It was a long journey to get there, and a long time in the planning process, but I'm ready to make another trip and do both North and South islands next time!

Grand Teton National Park - Stars, Scenery, and Wildlife

Natl Park with a great group of photographers to do a night/star photography workshop.
 
It was a fun trip, a great group to travel with, and I got a lot of photos both of the night skies, and of the scenery within the park.
 
The best part for me, of course, was the wildlife... getting up close and personal with bison several times (sometimes a bit *too* close).
 
All in all it was a great trip, and I look forward to getting back up there again in the future.

I've posted the final rounds of photos from my trip to Granada, Nicaragua, last month, where we worked with the photography students of Empowerment International and got the opportunity to photograph in the local area there.

These two galleries focus on the people that we encountered during our explorations, as well as the participants in our trip...

Here are... "The People" and "The Participants"

I've posted more photos from my trip to Granada, Nicaragua, last month, where we worked with the photography students of Empowerment International and got the opportunity to photograph in the local area there.

We were able photograph to the architecture of Granada, local farms, transportation, and other various things that we saw while walking around the areas we visited.

This is... "The Streets"
