I have retired from a rewarding aerospace engineering career so that I can devote more time to my hobby and passion of nearly 40 years: nature photography. Like so many other photographers, I have made the leap from the 35mm SLR film camera and a darkroom outfitted with chemicals, thermometers, trays, and color enlarger, to the DSLR camera and the digital darkroom made possible by sophisticated image processing software.
My interest for many years has been close-up and macro photography; especially images of flowers that strive to capture the essence of their form, patterns and colors. Landscapes have been another long time favorite.
Recently I expanded my interests to wildlife photography; especially birds. The Delmarva region offers nature photographers many venues and opportunities throughout the year to witness and capture magnificent displays and behaviors: Bald Eagles and Ospreys fishing in the many rivers and creeks that form the Chesapeake Bay watershed; thousands of overwintering Snow Geese on Delaware Bay that suddenly “explode” into the air during a dusk “liftoff” and then land into the adjoining tidal marshes to spend the night; or a solitary Great Blue Heron silently standing in the shallow, sunset-lit marsh of the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge patiently waiting for a fish to make the mistake of swimming a bit too close to the heron’s lightning fast bill.
