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

Last September I was traveling. I was visiting some friends and enjoying the theme parks at Orlando Florida. Yes, the crowds are horrible and everyone and their mother wants to take great vacation photos with their phones. Underexposed, dark, blurry photos of the fireworks at Disney or animal photos with a huge white spot where the flash hits the glass; we’ve all seen them, my mom still takes these photos proudly to share them in Instagram and other types of social media.So, what... continue reading

During October I decided to spend again a visit to one of the most emblematic nature parks of Catalonia and one of my preferred places I had nor been at for around a year. The Aiguamolls del Emporda are located in northeastern Catalonia quite near to the French border. The area presents a series of habitats consisting of wet meadows,lagoons of little depth and saline-adapted forests ofsmall extension.Lately I had not been very lucky with my bird photography and I arrived to the place putting... continue reading
My wife and I had a tough 2014 so we decided we needed some fun and booked a ticket to Orlando, Florida to visit the Disney and Universal Studios parks, and also the Kennedy Space Center. It's a long trip from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and at first, I thought I wouldn't take my DSLR with me. Of course I knew I would seize the opportunity to get some new gear, but I just didn't want to carry all that weight with me while visiting parks.But then I figured I would have lots of opportunities to get... continue reading
The summer months are upon us.For many that means thoughts are turning to where to travel for the summer holiday.Of course when you're retired, every month is a new opportunity to travel.That's a good thing, because my bucket list - you know, that list of places to see before you kick the bucket - keeps getting longer even while my time left to see them keeps getting shorter.Regardless of where you call home, you should add America's National Parks to your personal bucket... continue reading

Dear Friends,Is there anything that makes a New Yorker happier than spring? Those first cheery daffodils, the tulips and new grass, and when the trees burst into flower before leafing out. It's a glorious spectacle of health and vibrancy in our parks and other open spaces, and it's the most wonderful time of year to be in New York.And every year, more people want to visit and live in our city. Like many of you, I listened eagerly to Mayor Bloomberg's Earth Day speech as he described how New... continue reading
