Andy, I've taken the Alaska cruise. My favorite part was when we parked near a calving glacier. The ice chunks weren't huge but seeing them crash into the sea was pretty spectacular. I am reasonably satisfied with the photos I took. The biggest photography problem I encountered was the weather; lots...

CT, here's a tip you should know about protecting yourself from bears. Always travel with somebody who wears flip flops while you wear running shoes. You won't outrun the bear but you only need to outrun your traveling companion. Reading these posts make me want to attend some of these gatherings wi...

Carol, your perfect shots create all kinds of photographic problems. I photographed a moose almost exactly as you described except that he was a young bull and didn't have rack you were looking for. I was in Glacier National Park. This moose came out at dusk and was munching on pond weeds. I had a 3...

Andrew, I've spent a little time in New Hampshire and Andy's suggestion of the Kancamagus Highway is an excellent one. There are some very nice vistas and a lot of streams not to mention the fact that the mountains are full of beautifully colored trees. On my website I have a number of photos I've t...

Phil, I would love to help you with your camera. Consider though, that you might just get so hooked on it that you won't want to go to those heiffer walk and leaf festivals.

Confirmed

I've just confirmed by reservations for my Vermont trip. I will arrive in Burlington on Thursday, October 1, late and I'll stay near the airport. I would love to join CT and PWT on the Friday tour. Having someone who knows every road in Vermont showing us around is pretty exciting to me. I plan to a...

Andy's response to the question about photography with sunny or cloudy skies was spot on so I can't add anything on that subject except my agreement that a polarizing filter is a must. On other thing to think about is temperature. A cold frosty morning can create conditions for some great photos. On...

We're still waiting for summer here in Minnesota but we haven't been getting much rain. July has been very cool. International Falls, which is on the Canadian border has already set record lows five times this month. While in the Twin Cities it hasn't been that cold, last Saturday we set the record ...

Carol, I've finally found a little time to visit the SOV site. Very nice slide show. I really enjoyed it. I grew up in Wisconsin where we were known for Cows but we never had a parade such as this one. Actually my hometown claimed to be the horse capital of Wisconsin but I saw a lot more cows around...

I thought Odes were only done to dead people! I assure you that I am alive and well. Now that I think about it, Robert Burns wrote some Odes; one to a mouse and one to a louse. Oh dear. Seriously though, you have nothing to apologize for with these photos. I like the first one a lot...nice silky wat...

CT, interesting post. When I go to Vermont in the autumn, I'm looking for the perfect photograph. I don't need peak everywhere and for that matter I don't need much of it anywhere. I'm searching for the photograph that includes peak color. I've driven all over Vermont looking for the perfect shot. I...

Andy, after reading your message, I played around with Lab Color using Scott Kelby's method and came up with this Badlands revision: http://www.goldimagesphoto.com/np804c.jpg It a touch brighter and more saturated. What do you think? Too much saturation? Actually the original of the first submission...

The winter that will never end

It seems that this is the winter that will never end in my part of the country. Here are a couple of photos I took this weekend in Badlands National Park. By mid-April, snow should be gone. http://www.goldimagesphoto.com/Bandlands_2437.jpg I've shot a lot of phots in the Badlands, but I think this o...

You know, Andy, given the commitments we have during the summer and your planned trip to Maine in the fall, you may have settle for a wintertime visit! Early winter is best before our fast flowing streams and waterfalls freeze over. Yes, it gets so cold up here in Minnesota that even the waterfalls ...
