Here is another image from my time in the Dominican Republic. This is a burrowing owl, one of the smallest owl species in this hemisphere, they are diurnal and nest in underground burrows. Easily seen on part of FL they are threatened in places due to development and habitat loss.

My favorite feature is their bright yellow eyes.

Enjoy!

Bison at a late sunset in Yellowstone National Park.

Made this image on the second to last day of my second "Winter in Yellowstone" workshop for 2014. I am incredibly fortunate to visit Yellowstone a few times every year, and I have to say that I have thousands of Bison images in my collections, yet I never tire of photographing them specially when a nice sunset presents itself.

Enjoy.

I've been in Texas recording the third installment of Birds Through the Lens. This episode is all about birds in flight. Lots of amazing information and inspiring images.

The first section we have been working on is about raptors. And we made some amazing images of my favorite raptor, the Kestrel.

If you want to learn more about Birds Though the Lens make sure to visit the website for a preview of the first two episodes.

If you have not already checked it out, you must. There are only 2 hours left on the 5Daydeal.

More than $2,000 worth of photo learning tools for just $89. I've received feedback from a bunch of folks who have purchased the bundle and they where very psyched about all the resources they now have access to.

Do yourself a favor and check it out, even if you only end up using 2 or 3 of the items in the bundle, the deal is well worth it.

If you have not yet taken advantage of this deal, you need to check it out. The 5DayDeal is back again this year and better than before. Best of all it has already raised more than $100,000 for charity! How cool is that.

The deal ends this Monday so you need to take advantage of this now. You get over $2000 worth of photo training for only $89. Even if you find 2 or three items that are of interest to you, it is well worth it.

Tomorrow I start my Acadia National Park photo workshop. One of my favorites since this is my back yard. Every year the weather brings us something different, this year it looks like we are going to hit the foliage at it's peak!

Getting excited.

Here is another image from my trip to the Dominican republic. I was lucky enough to charter a small boat to photograph these large groups of flamingoes. It was not easy shooting through a 500mm lens while the waves kept rocking the boat but the images are well worth it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Just last month I went to the Dominican Republic to visit my good friend +Mario Davalos and make some great images. I had a great time and came back with not only some inspiring images but with some great memories of our adventures in some of the most remote places in DR. We visited places no many people have seen.

One of the coolest spectacles we witnessed was a large group of very cooperative flamingoes. Making images of these beautiful creatures from a rocking boat was challenging, but most definitely worthwhile. Hope you enjoy them.

Here is a another bobcat image from my "Winter in Yellowstone" workshop this past February. We got so fortunate with this Bobcat as it put an incredible display for us for a few hours. At one point it even had an altercation with a bunch of Coyotes. Luckily I was able to both make some images as well as shoot some video. I will share some of those with all of you soon.

Enjoy.

Speaking of Yellowstone, I would encourage each and every one of you to check out this video. One of the best and most succinct videos to tackle the subject of the impact the wolves have on the Yellowstone ecosystem.

I feel that if every person watched this with an open mind they would quickly understand how important wolves and top predators are to maintaining balance in the environment.

Bobcat, Winter in Yellowstone National Park

In the past few years we have been fortunate to encounter a number of bobcats during my Winter in Yellowstone workshops. This year we were extremely fortunate to see not only one but two bobcats, with one of them "interacting" with a number of coyotes, but that is an image to share a little later.

What amazed me about these bobcats is how unfazed they where by the throngs of observers. I was also very pleased to see that these throngs of observers respected the animals and kept their distance. After witnessing so much misbehavior in the past, it truly is inspiring to see dozens and dozens of people provide these animals with the respect they deserve.

Enjoy!

Sunrise in Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park. This was one of those bitterly cold mornings, -21 degrees Fahrenheit with a bit of a breeze. We stood outside capturing the sunrise unfold before us for about 30-45 minutes and we all promptly got painfully cold. However the experience was worth it, beautiful textured clouds, gorgeous landscape and amazingly colored skies. What else could you ask for?

Here is a B&W interpretation of the "bobby socks" trees near Fountain Paint Pots in Yellowstone. They are called "bobby socks" because the silica from the water gets absorbed into the trees and "stains" the otherwise dark dead trees.

I made this image during one of my "Winter in Yellowstone" photo workshops.

I just got home from an incredible two weeks and two workshops in Yellowstone. While we endured some bitterly cold days we all made some amazing images and had tons of fun.

How cold was it? We had one morning that was -36 degrees Fahrenheit. I am attaching an image of what this kind of extremely cold weather looks and feels like. The morning of this photograph it was not quite -36 but close and we ventured out in the Old Faithful basin to photograph the geysers and frosty bison. I tried to take this selfie with my iPhone but it got so cold that it shutdown and would not turn on. So I took it with my little GoPro which had been stored safely in an inside pocket.

While many discount the coyote, I feel a strong affinity towards them. I find them beautiful and they happen to be one of the most resourceful species in North America.

Today, during my workshop here in Yellowstone we got treated by a pair of coyotes and this one in particular posed for us for quite some time. I think this is my favorite coyote image of all time.

Hope you enjoy it.

We have had quite a bit of snow here in Yellowstone the past couple of days and nothing compliments the snow like bison.

I always wonder what compels them to march like they do from location to location. Are they looking for new pastures? Or maybe a change of scenery. Either way to me the bison look so regal and powerful I am mesmerized every time I see a procession like this, no matter how many times I've seen them before.

Enjoy.

I am in Yellowstone leading 2 of my "Winter in Yellowstone" workshops. The first one is almost over but we have had a great time and some amazing photo opportunities. Earlier today we did a quick image critique and I was very pleased to see the work of the participants.

Here is one of my favorite images of the trip so far, a Big Horn Sheep walking along the edge of a mountain. They are so majestic and beautiful, I never get tired of making images.

What do you think?

Last year during my Winter in Yellowstone workshop I was fortunate to make what has turned out to be one of my favorite Yellowstone images of all time. We got lucky and ran into a very cooperative White Tailed Jackrabbit sporting a beautiful winter coat. My who group was able to work with it for nearly an hour in all sorts of backgrounds.

I am getting things ready for my two back to back "Winter in Yellowstone" photo workshops and I've decided to check out some of the images from lasts years workshop. Here is one of my favorites, a small bison heard early in the morning heading to some newer feeding grounds.

Yellowstone is my obsolete favorite place in the world and I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to make several trips there a year, it has not become somewhat of a pilgrimage for me.

Winter in Yellowstone is like no other time of year. If you have not been make sure to add it to your plans some time.

This summer I am taking my Airstream camper out from Maine all the way to Yellowstone where my son, sister and and a bunch of other family members will meet me. I will serve as their tour guide for 2 solid weeks in the park. After those two weeks I will pay a short visit to Glacier... more »

With the miserable weather we have been having lately I have been looking back at some nicer times this past summer. Back in September I visited a few lighthouses here on the coast of Maine.

One of my favorites is this one The Cuckolds Lighthouse at the very tip of Southport. I absolutely loved the setting and the light we got that evening. Just to make things even better we opened up a bottle of Malbec and sat admiring the light and the beautiful scenery.

Hope you enjoy it.

+Rick Sammon and I at the DPE Podcast have received a bunch of comments on one of our last episodes where we talked about the new Photographers bundle from Adobe. I stated two things:

1. I am not sure if Lightroom would remain an independent product (non-cloud) for ever. I suspect that at some point it will become part of the Creative Cloud.

2. I also stated that I I did not think the $9.99 price of the photographers bundle was for longer than one year. The Adobe announcement was not very specific on this point only saying this was not an introductory offer, but then saying it was only available until Dec, 31, 2013. When I purchased the bundle I read the license agreement and it clearly stated that the price was guaranteed for only one year. I would love to be proven wrong!

With all of the comments we have gotten, I decided to research this a bit more and the only thing I could find saying this the price was good for more than one year, was from a post by Terry White here:

http://terrywhite.com/adobe-creative-cloud-bundle-photographers-announced-photoshop-world/

The very last item on the Q&A section reads like this:

Q: Will the cost of my membership increase?
A: This price is not a special introductory price for your first year only; it is the standard price for this level of membership. Customers who sign up by December 31, 2013 will be able to continue their membership at the same price. But if you cancel your membership in the future, you will not be able to re-join at this special price.

This is the closest thing to a direct statement from Adobe I have been able to find that this pricing will extend past the first year.

I would love to see Adobe issue a statement to remove all this confusion over this issue and make their intentions crystal clear.

Hope this clarifies this issue a bit.

Here is another image from my "Multiple Exposures" class I am teaching at Maine Media Workshops this week. Can you tell what I wrong with this image, and can you guess how I made it?

No Photoshop used at all in the making of this image.

This past spring I visited a new-to-me state park that I hope I will be visiting very often. And that is Ricketts Glen State Park in PA. I was just amazed at this small state park, with 22 named waterfalls in a very accessible area this is one place not to be missed.

I am pulling together plans for a workshop there this coming spring, so make sure to let me know if you are interested in joining me there.

Early this summer I was privileged to have been the resident "Pro" on the Wanderbird expedition cruise as we travelled through the south east coast of Newfoundland. On that trip I made some great friends and was also able to make some very memorable images. This is one of my favorites from the trip.

Hiking along the outskirts of an abandoned village I found the remains of a Caribou amongst some ferns.

This past summer I was privileged to be the resident photographer aboard the Wanderbird Expedition Cruise on a weeklong trip along the southern coast of Newfoundland.

The trip was amazing, and I made some memorable images as well as lifelong friends aboard the vessel.

One of the most spectacular experiences was traveling up some of the Fjords. I wanted to capture the experience so I mounted a GoPro camera on the bow of the boat in timelapse mode and made a few timelapse sequences of the sailing up these spectacular Fjords.

Here is a raw version one of those timelapses. Please bear in mind that this is not the final product, there is more work to be done and some music to be added, but I wanted to share at least one with you now.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

We have finally been able to release one of the projects I have been working on for quite some time.

I partnered with my friend Alan Murphy, whom I consider to be the best bird photographer today, to produce an instructional video on bird photography. 

This is the first installment on what we hope will be a series of videos. 

For more information go to:http://www.birdsthroughthelens.com
