2019 may be the year that I have traveled the most to make pictures. The year began rounding Cape Horn, while returning from Antarctica, followed, several months later, by a voyage from the beaches of Tahiti to Machu Pichu, and then through the Panama Canal to the the east coast. Summer brought a trip from the Shetland Islands of Scotland, the length of Norway, cruising the White Sea of Russia, and finally back to Copenhagen. And in the Fall, I got to do some weekend photography, whilst I was teaching in Central New York. When I wasn't doing any of those things, I was usually guiding and photographing at the Orlando Wetlands Park.
It was also a year of photographic transition. After predominantly shooting Canon cameras for almost 40 years, I jumped, headlong, into the Fujifilm ecosystem; first with an X-T3 and adding an X-H1 for wildlife duties. I'm still not completely comfortable with the new cameras, but that's part of the fun!
For those of you who have followed my photography and/or those who have traveled with me, I dedicate this annual collection. I took over 30,000 images this past year and I think these are the best. But since all my viewers don't equally enjoy nature and travel photography, I have separated them in to two collections, one for travel and the other for my nature photography at the Orlando Wetlands Park. I hope you will enjoy them.
If you are a newcomer to my photography, please either leave a comment or drop me a line, and I'll be happy to add you to my mailing list. I usually send out 3-4 messages per year, so I promise not to spam you.
