I was driving from St. Gregory's Abbey in Three Rivers, Michigan, to Kalamazoo, when I happened to notice two sand hill cranes fly low over the road in front of me. I looked to see if they landed, but couldn't find them. I continued to scour the fields as I headed north on a US131 detour and was amply rewarded with a squawking mass of upwards of 1,000 of them that had settled in to a 30-40 acre tract of plowed farmland. It was an amazing sight. They would not let me get close, but that meant I did get some great shots of them in flight. What an amazing sight. 2 November 2016.

In a moment of panic I realized that a whole year was about to pass without posting a single image to this blog. It's not as if I haven't shot any-- quite the contrary. Apparently I've been busy or something. This is a recent favorite. We happened upon fields of Brussels sprouts growing, in the late afternoon, as we drove up Highway 1. There was something about the light and the endless fields of little green veggie balls that was fascinating. 28 December 2014. Half Moon Bay, California.
This series of images is from a trip to the Svalbard Islands in search of polar bears. We were not dissapointed, and saw many other wonderful things along the way.
In February we ventured into the land of EXTREME cold in search of the Aurora Borealis-- in our case, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. The average temperature when I was shooting was -40 degrees (farenheit and centigrade are the same at that temperature!), with windchill it was -53F.
