Kids at play.  Lots of action at a Halloween birthday party.
Sometimes it pays to be nimble.  On an overcast day, a shutter speed of 1/640 sec. froze the action - needed an ISO of 400 to get the shot.
Busy pollinators. This photo was made with flash providing fill in light and freezing the action.  The background was under-exposed one stop to provide greater richness and color saturation.
Whoops!
Cabellas' dioramas make a visit to this sporting goods superstore a fascinating experience.

Favorite shot from Dani and Dom's wedding.  They did all the work on this shot, picking the location and choosing the pose.  Was great working with them!

Back-lit Canadian goose.  The challenge is in choosing the "best" exposure for the subject to reveal detail in the shadow area.  Order here.

One of our blue jays enjoying the first snow of 2015.  Light is often a challenge on snowy overcast days.  Often need a high shutter speed, high ISO and a stable base for the photo.  No flash here.

Sometimes all it takes is being at the right place at the right time.  The light was fleeting. In a moment the color was gone.  Canadian Geese at dusk in Pennsylvania's Perkiomen Valley.

 The winter of 2017-2018 produced some lovely snow with brisk damaging winds.
