  • About this site

    I use this site for several purposes. It serves as a very convenient way for me to share my photos with other people: family, friends, and strangers alike. It also gives me a place to critique my own work to try to learn what works and what doesn't as well as getting feedback from visitors.

    That being said, I hope you enjoy my pictures and tolerate my occasional ramblings. If you would like larger scale versions of any of these pictures, just leave a comment or shoot me an email.

This is another picture from our beach trip last summer.  We decided to go wander around the docks one evening after dinner and stumbled upon a crane.  I think I followed him around for a good 10-15 minutes taking pictures, walking back and forth as he flew from one pier to another.  I ended up getting some pretty good still photos, but I really liked the action shots like this.  It would have been cool to have been able to catch a landing like this from the other side, but then the crane would have had to be flying towards me, which it didn’t seem to want to do.  Go figure…  Anyway, I really like how you can see the feathers at the tips of the wings spreading out.  I’m glad that the picture turned out this sharp considering the low light, lack of flash, and moving subject.  Also the owl tied to the post in the upper right corner is a neat little carving.
