A look back: Yosemite National Park

I am not the first nor the last to capture the beauty of this amazing park. Thousands of photographers have taken thousands of images here that are better than mine; even famous photographers like Ansel Adams have taken iconic images that have inspired generations of photographers, here in this park. There’s a reason why; this park is a natural wonderland and, while my images are not as famous or iconic as other images taken here, they tell the story of my own personal experience visiting the park.... continue reading

A look back: Sequoia National Park

Last year I was vacationing in California and got to visit Sequoia National Park twice during our stay, taking as many photos as the rest of the (non-photographers) group allowed me to. I loved it.I’m from the Caribbean, I’m used to sandy beaches, sun and warm tropical weather. The park was cool, breezy, full of gigantic green and brown trees, mountains and streams of water snaking between rocks, song birds singing and majestic vistas of the mountains in the distance and... continue reading

Park Entrance Fees: Actually A Benefit For Photographers?

Like a politician, on this topic, I tend to flip flop. My thoughts on user or entrance fees can go back and forth quickly, sometimes in the same sentence. Other photographers, amateur or professional, probably have strong opinions, as well. After all, photographing nature and landscapes involves a lot of time spent in parkland.But, what is the value of user fees, both for the land or attraction owner and the user? My opinion has swayed recently actually in favour of user and entrance fees to points... continue reading

National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day is celebrated on March 23. Though it was started in the US to bring awareness to dog and cat adoption, I want to celebrate by sharing some puppy images. Since we live on a ranch, we bought a couple Rat Terrier puppies as they are known to keep the mice and rat population under control and they are a good family pet!Toto and Charlie were from the same litter. They were very active and I used a fast lens to capture them playing outside.Two of Charlie's images... continue reading

The Everglades Turns 70

Yesterday, Everglades National Park turned 70. It is the most surprisingly beautiful place I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I do not know about you, but when I think of a swamp, I think of being sweaty, itchy from bugs and wet from the mud. It did not seem a very inviting landscape. I was very wrong....its majestic. Many of my best photographs have been taken in the marshes behind my home in Florida. It is peaceful, strange and understated.... continue reading

Diving for images in Komodo National Park

[Manta ray (Manta alfredi) with attendant cleaner fish : OMD E-M1ii and M.Zuiko 8mm Fisheye; Nauticam NA-EM1ii and Zen DP-170 @ ISO64, f4, 1/250s]   Mention the Komodo National Park to most people, and they will probably think of Komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis). Mention it to a diver and they’ll most likely think of strong currents, stunning reefs, abundant big fish and turtles, and then maybe the dragons. Fair-play to the dragons, at up to 3 meters long and over 150 kilos in weight,... continue reading

Chinese National Day in Hong Kong

When I first arrived in Hong Kong in 2015 I thought the New year eve would be a perfect time to practice firework shooting. I went to the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade since 9 pm to get a good spot for shooting but I was a newbie back then. All the photos were either overexposed, underexposed or wrong timing. I shrugged and thought 'Well, maybe next year'. Then, one day in 2016, my mom came to visit me and we walked along the Nathan road for sightseeing. Suddenly, police officers came to close down the... continue reading

Teddy Bear.The words alone can invoke such strong emotions -love, innocence, childhood, comfort, and so much more.Admit it, you probably had a favorite teddy bear when you were a child – you may even have a favorite one now (I won’t confess to the number of teddy bears I currently have – let’s just say that my husband had to declare his office a “bear free zone”).As we celebrate“National Teddy Bear Day” on September 9th, I thought it would be fun to explore some of the... continue reading
